The Worldwide Womb Blessing is a personal and spiritual healing and development system available for all women, regardless of their background, ethnicity, physical condition or beliefs. This book discusses the background to the system and the five-times-a-year global meditation events.
It includes a daily development path for women based on their uniquely female cycle, and provides new insights and activities for women who wish to discover their own true feminine nature.
I am looking for an eye-catching, imaginative and appropriate design which will capture the essence of women working together globally to reclaim their authentic femininity and celebrating their uniquely female cyclic nature. The cover should be feminine and flowing, suggesting the connection between women and the moon, women and the earth, and women with each other flowing around the world. The book includes a story about the First Woman.
Alternative market / female wellbeing / female spirituality
All women from any country and background and any age, who wish to awaken to their authentic female energies.
FURTHER SUGGESTION: Many of the designs submitted so far feature a single woman. We need to convey the idea of women joining together around the world. Perhaps a circle of women holding hands, circling the world, with the phases of the moon in the sky above.
Perhaps a large tree growing up from the earth, circled by women, with the phases of the moon in its branches.
Please make sure you include the 'tree' logo supplied somewhere on the cover, even if only as a small inset 'badge'.
Woman / women / the womb / women linking womb to womb and heart to heart /
women / woman connecting with each other, enfolding the world /
moon lying in the lower belly of women
The womb as concept art, not realism!
Needs to include if possible:
Phases of the Moon or just the full Moon and the idea of women and the moon being linked
(More additional guidance: It's important to convey the sense of women joining together, as well as images of moon phases and the earth. Many of the designs submitted so far are showing isolated, solitary women - need to convey a sense of a community of women.
Black and a very angular text font for titles in capitals are too masculine. Think soft and feminine and colourful!
Need the moon – full moon, or a suggestion of the circle of moon phases
Need a sense of other women – this is a community of women.
Would like an indication of the earth if possible – it is global.
Would like sense of flow and continuity from the front to the back.
Make the womb area of any women stand out – radiate energy, marked with a moon, a star, a flower, a spiral…
If possible place the womb tree as a spotart on the cover – this logo is recognised by thousands of women online worldwide. If not, it must be on the back cover.)
No harsh photo realism, no cartoons, no ‘catwalk’ makeup or hairstyles on any women please.
Feminine, flowing, loving, caring, soft, embracing. Inspiring.
Any artwork should be soft like watercolour.
Light and appealing.
Please be very careful of nudity as this book will be going to many different cultures.
The cover should feature the ‘tree’ image attached which is used as a logo for the worldwide events; this may be a dominant cover feature, or it may just be a small ‘badge’ or ‘insert’ somewhere in the design.
The back cover should feature the photo of the artist, the ‘Womb Blessing’ logo and the ‘Dancing Eve’ publisher’s logo (this may be in a panel alongside the ISBN and barcode).
The book will be produced in UK Royal format (234mm X 156mm) with a 3mm bleed. Spine width to be advised.
Please leave a blank panel on the bottom left of the back cover measuring 47 x 32mm for the barcode (not right up against the edge of the cover).
Text for the front cover:
Title: Female Energy Awakening
Subtitle: The path of the Worldwide Womb Blessing back to Authentic Femininity
Author: Miranda Gray
Text for the back cover (suggested layout available as Word document):
Do you desire to live fully as the
passionate, spiritual, empowered, loving, creative and sensual woman,
you know you truly are?
Five times a year, thousands of women worldwide connect with each other. They connect to walk a path of female healing and a return to their long-forgotten authentic femininity through the Worldwide Womb Blessing - a Female Energy Awakening.
In this book, originator Miranda Gray shares the story behind the Worldwide Womb Blessing and provides new answers to fundamental questions for the modern woman.
• Why the womb energy centre is critical to the well-being and happiness of all women, whatever their age or physical condition.
• How the Sacred Feminine is relevant to modern women, and how reconnecting to this principle can lead you to a less stressful life.
• How to fully embrace your femininity in a masculine-centred world that constantly disconnects women from what it means to be truly female.
The included 28-day ‘Path of Female Conscious Living’ is an essential guide to your true nature, and helps support the healing and awakening that occurs through the Womb Blessing.
“Having my womb blessed by the energy of the Feminine during the Worldwide Womb Blessing, becoming a Moon Mother, and living the wonderful cyclic feminine energies took me on the amazing path of re-connection to the real ‘myself’, discovering my real value and finding my place in society and in the world.”
The book is full of ‘Aha!’ moments, meditations and exercises for all women - whether or not you have a womb or a cycle.
Miranda Gray is an international author and teacher on the cyclic nature of women.
