By showing how these approaches are intricately connected—whether it be physically or emotionally—Raffo interrupts the traumatic binaries of the political and spiritual, the physical and intellectual, and healing and organizing.

For ambitious women, fear can be everywhere: fear of failing at motherhood, fear of doing things differently, and fear of feeling unfulfilled—forever. Shanita Liu was consumed by these fears. Decades of people pleasing, perfectionism, and cultural conditioning left her burnt out. Desperate, Shanita sought a coach who invited her to tune into her own heart. Durga, a remarkable warrior goddess, appeared. Durga told Shanita that she wasn’t alone and could activate her own courage to triumph over fears.
