||In September 1996 a group of elderly women who call themselves ?The Great Council of the Grandmothers? appeared to the author as she walked her dog. These wise women?who represent all cultures and races of humanity?revealed to her their mission. ?Earth has suffered too long from an excess of yang and insufficient yin.? They said, ?We have come to correct this.? Desperate times call for something new. As humans stand at the edge of the precipice, the winds of change blasting our backs, the universe throws us a lifeline. Help has appeared in the form of wise old women, the Great Council of the Grandmothers. ?The present imbalance of energy of Earth has placed all life in danger,? the Grandmothers declare. ?It is time to return to balance, and for this, women must lead. Women must be empowered. This is why we have come.? The Grandmothers have come to awaken the presence of the deep feminine, to bring men and women and all life back into harmony. A Call to Power is the story of the author's encounters with these wise women and the powerful and important message they bring.
