Mix­ing religion, phi­los­o­phy, sci­ence, and meta­physics, Fem­i­nine Ge­nius: The Provoca­tive Path to Wak­ing Up and Turn­ing On the Wis­dom of Be­ing a Woman ex­plores the in­nate power of fe­male en­ergy. Au­thor Liyana Sil­ver, a dancer and life coach, draws on her own ex­pe­ri­ences and those of her clients to ex­am­ine the role women are ex­pected to play in so­ci­ety and how to free one­self from those ex­pec­ta­tions. The book as­serts that through em­brac­ing their fe­male phys­i­cal­ity and sex­u­al­ity, and ac­cept­ing their own di­vin­ity, women can be­gin the process of self-ac­tu­al­iza­tion, and dis­cover their in­ner light.

The book of­fers a thought­ful ex­am­i­na­tion of the dif­fer­ence be­tween male and fe­male en­ergy and how that dif­fer­ence is re­flected in so­cial mores and be­liefs. Mas­cu­line en­ergy is the driv­ing force, the ac­tive en­ergy of com­plet­ing tasks and ac­com­plish­ing goals, and is gen­er­ally highly val­ued. Fem­i­nine en­ergy is more fluid and self-nur­tur­ing: “Fem­i­nine Ge­nius starts with a fer­tile void, draws to it what it needs and cre­ates all shades of life, whether a baby, a book, or a busi­ness.” Draw­ing on tantric wis­dom, the book sug­gests that di­vin­ity is both male and fe­male and that all life is a part of it.

There are a num­ber of lessons and ex­er­cises de­signed to help women con­nect with the di­vine within. Guided med­i­ta­tions and sets of spe­cific ques­tions to be ex­plored and an­swered help women rec­og­nize their own in­ner or­a­cle and to un­der­stand and re­fine their great­est de­sires.

Fem­i­nine Ge­nius is in­sight­ful, well writ­ten, and well or­ga­nized. The au­thor draws on mul­ti­ple philo­soph­i­cal and re­li­gious tra­di­tions and presents a per­spec­tive on fe­male en­ergy and po­ten­tial that is truly en­light­en­ing. The ac­tiv­i­ties in­cluded of­fer a great op­por­tu­nity for ex­plor­ing one’s true iden­tity and the scripts that each per­son sub­con­sciously lives by. It is an un­apolo­get­i­cally em­pow­er­ing book and will be use­ful to women from all walks of life who are search­ing for their pas­sion.
