This book is dedicated to all the women who found greatness within themselves, and for all the others who are still searching for it.
"Poderosas: Conversations with Extraordinary Women," is a series of stories that take place between Dr. Garcia, her husband Barrett Martin, and 12 extraordinary women. Each woman is highly accomplished in her field, none have sought fame, yet all have made an indelible mark on their respective communities.
These conversations take place in unusual and sometimes exotic locations, as these women describe their work and life experiences: A Latina pediatrician at a Texas barbeque, a Cherokee healer during a sweat lodge ceremony, two Shipibo shamans in the Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, an anthropologist in a noisy New York restaurant, a Tlingit professor in her cozy Alaskan home, a Zen master in her Los Angeles Zendo, two mothers in their homes near the Mexico border and the Pacific Northwest, an African American dancer in a New York studio, and 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 transforms herself into a "Poderosa" - a powerful woman, who affects real change in her corner of the world.
