Her memoir, a bare account of an ordinary woman, enlightened not just her children, for whom she wrote it, but all prosperity about her life and community. Gluckel speaks to us with determination and humour from the 17th century. She tells of war, plague, pirates, soldiers, the hysteria of the false messiah Sabbtai Zevi, murder, bankrupt, wedding feasts, births deaths, in fact, of all human events that befell her during her lifetime. She writes in a matter-of-fact way of the frightening and precarious situation under which the Jews of northern Germany lived. Accepting this situation is given, she boldly and fearlessly promotes her business, her family and her faith." -- from the rear panel blurb. . Size: Large Format Paperback.

Shambhala, USA, 1997. 
 Softcover Softcover. Very Good Condition/. . A tender and funny exploration of the sacred dimension of motherhood. When a woman becomes pregnant she is suddenly carried far beyond the self she previously knew. She becomes a vessel through which life proceeds, and she begins to learn something of the spiritual forces that ignite all of life. Maren Hansen's book explores this inner experience of motherhood as a timeless and universal expression of feminine spirituality. Drawing on the experience of her own three pregnancies in chapters like "Raging Hormones" and "The Venus of Willendorf and Me," she takes the reader on an amusing but thought-provoking tour through morning sickness, amniocentesis, preparing a nest, birth, postpartum depression, nursing, and working outside the home. The deepest spiritual realities, she shows, are intertwined with the commonest daily events. 339 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Have you coveted, envied, admired another woman's hair, shoes, bag, job, husband, figure or weight this morning? Have you ever breathed a sigh of relief when your ex's new girlfriend turns out to be fatter, uglier or poorer than you? Thought Anything She Can Do I Can Do Better? Chances are, if you're a woman who engages in society (read, leaves the house), you're competitive - not that you'll admit it. Female competition is a taboo topic. It's covert, rarely spoken about in public, but it exists. We owe it to the future generations of women to encourage the way we compete with each other to be a positive experience in the game of life. This means acknowledging our competitive thoughts, not judging them. Speaking openly, looking at what triggers our own competitiveness, discovering why we compete in some situations and not in others and then working with what we know.
