In our first episode of The Change Making Women Book Club, Ziada and Mary Ann have been reading Mighty Be Our Powers by Leymah Gbowee, the Liberian Peace Activist whose leadership helped bring an end to Liberia’s second civil war.
They introduce the Book Club talk about what they learnt from reading this story about a woman creating change in a time of war. They talk about how her honesty shows through and about the parts of her story that inspired and challenged them.
Each month we will be doing a show about a book written by a woman who has created change and talk about her story and why it inspires, motivates or challenges us. We will also be inviting listeners to get involved with this.

In this show, we talk with Nicole about her book ‘The Heart of the Labyrinth’ about a woman who takes a journey to rediscover her lost connection with Mother Earth and the sacred feminine. We find it what motivated her to write the book, how she created the conditions in which it could be written and the impact she hopes the book will have on those who read it.
Nicole is author of The Heart of the Labyrinth, an evocative spiritual parable, which gives voice to her engagement on behalf of a world that values and honors the sacred feminine and is rooted in our connection to the Earth as a living being. Facilitator and social entrepreneur, Nicole co-founded a number of non-profit organizations active in the environmental and gender fields, including EDGE Certified Foundation, a global label certifying organizations for closing the gender gap in the workplace. Nicole blogs on the nature of reality and is on the Advisory Boards of Treesisters and The WellBeing Project.
