Flaunt! Drop Your Cover and Reveal Your Smart, Sexy & Spiritual Self, by Lora Cheadle (New World Library, $15.95, Paperback)

Lora Cheadle believes we all have multiple personas. She also believes that even though we may love the roles we play, they sometimes wear us down and can be irritating. Instead of performing roles, she focuses on cultivating self-love through being true to oneself. Cheadle helps readers learn how laughter, play, and dance can help us peel back the layers and personalities we have created for ourselves and find the ever-present self-worth we have inside of us—self-worth and self-love that cannot be undone.

When God Had a Wife: The Fall and Rise of the Sacred Feminine in the Judeo-Christian Tradition, by Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince (Bear & Company, $16, Paperback)

Over time, the history of religion has grown to suppress the divine feminine energy. Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince provide historical research about the legacy of the Jewish goddesses and share that, despite what most people believe, the ancient Israelites worshipped both male and female deities. When history was rewritten by men, the spiritual roles of women were downgraded. This happened again with Jesus and Mary Magdalene, as well as with Simon Magus and Helen. Yet, the spiritual practices and legacies of the feminine live on! Picknett and Prince reveal how the collective has needed the return of this feminine energy as they pinpoint how history has been affected by its suppression.
