Introduction to Moonrise: The Power of Women Leading from the Heart

A Bioneers Anthology Edited By Nina Simons, With Anneke Campbell

Many today find themselves being called toward greater leadership on behalf of the Earth, sourced from their inner authority and inspired by what they love and are dedicated to protect, transform, and strengthen. Those successfully heeding this call have embraced the qualities previously relegated to the “feminine”– inner awareness, collaboration, relational intelligence, respect for the sacred and generosity — and married them to the best of their “masculine” attributes to create a new form of leadership more inspiring, inviting, and effective for transforming how we live on Earth and with each other. Through a tapestry of over 30 voices and stories, Moonrise illuminates how women and many men are redefining the leadership landscape across a diversity of perspectives, generations and ethnicities. Get a glimpse into this critically acclaimed anthology, edited by Nina Simons and Anneke Campbell, with a foreword by Terry Tempest Williams.

Each and every essay contained in Moonrise is inspiring, touching, and revitalizing to the reader. Not all of the authors are women, but each and every one of them celebrates the unique gifts that women bring to the world.
