Poderosas: Conversations With Extraordinary, Ordinary Women is a book of stories that takes place between psychologist and human rights activist, Dr. Lisette Garcia, her husband Barrett Martin, and 12 extraordinary women. Each is highly accomplished in their fields, yet none of these women seek fame, even though each has made an indelible mark on their respective communities.
These conversations take place in sometimes unusual locations as these women describe their work and life experience: with a pediatrician at a Texas barbeque; with an indigenous healer in her Pacific Northwest home; with two shamans in a traditional longhouse in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest; with an anthropologist in a noisy New York restaurant; with an indigenous professor in her cozy Alaskan home; with a Zen master in her Los Angeles Zendo; with a mothers in her home near the Mexican border; with a modern dancer in a New York studio; with an artist in her pick up truck, speeding across the New Mexico desert.
Each of these stories show how powerful a woman can be when she embraces her circumstances, envisions her life, and then transform herself into a Poderosa – a powerful woman, who effects real change in her corner of the world.
