Heart of a Woman Book:
Marion Woodman’s handwritten note about Heart of a Woman:
Dear Marta Luzim,
Many thanks for the gift of your excellent book. I have slowly taken time to examine every page. It is a most interesting coming together of content and spirit.
I am moved by the way your work and mine have spoken together. Please thank your other female artists.
I honor your passion and mission and your gift to women’s organizations. I do not use a typewriter or a computer, so please accept my handwritten note.
Very much love in Her service,
The book has caused me to reflect. While gazing upon page thirteen I realized that I must grieve the loss of myself and the loss of my son before I can begin to reinvent. I look at the picture of the quiet still frozen woman and I realize that I am frozen too, “frozen in time” a time when I decided that I would take care of myself, I wouldn’t ask for anything from anyone ever. I would protect myself because the feelings I had as a young girl were just too painful to feel so I became frozen and rigid and defended. This book is a reflection of all who read it – each of us reflecting on our own journeys. Contemplating the messages on each of the beautifully illustrated pages causes me to turn inward and reflect on my life. Heart of a Woman is a masterpiece! I strongly recommend Heart of a Woman as a catalyst for change through deep reflection and contemplation. - Rita M.
Heart of a Woman is a truly amazing book. Gorgeous artwork, combined with powerful language, speak to a depth of a woman’s experience that rarely gets told so clearly. I find myself picking it up again and again, to read truths I need to hear. As a woman who has survived my own journey of trauma and silence, as well as a woman who has worked with many women who lost their voice due to trauma, I am constantly searching for truth about women’s lives. Rarely do I see the truth told as it is in this book. This is a book to treasure for its beauty: the beauty of the powerful artwork, and the beauty of its truth about a woman’s journey to finding her voice. I celebrate and cherish Heart of a Woman! - Debora S.
I love the amazing artwork that captures the feeling in the words on the pages. I also kept getting surprised that the [quotes in the book were] thoughts and feelings that I thought I was the only one who could possibly have felt. It made me feel like I was not alone. - Lily M.
