Publisher's Summary

The New York Times best-selling author and renowned clinical psychologist teaches women how to transcend their fears and illusions, break free from societal expectations and rediscover the person they were always meant to be: fully present, conscious and happy.

A Radical Awakening lays out a path for women to heal their psychic wounds and prepares them to discover their own powers to help heal others and the planet. Dr Shefali helps women uncover the purpose that already exists within them and harness the power of authenticity in every area of their lives.

This is an eloquent and inspiring, practical and accessible book, backed with real-life examples and personal stories, that unlocks the extraordinary power necessary to awaken the conscious self. Dr Shefali will empower and inspire all women to uncover the person they always wanted to be: fully present, conscious and happy, by deconstructing the archetypes that still exist in society today, inspiring women to live authentically - and, importantly, elevate other women along the way.

Waste of time

There is nothing radical about this book. The amount of metaphors and comparisons used to describe authors point of view are so rich and plentiful you tend to just drift off. And her approach to “men being wired to cheat” is just so sad and outdated it left me doubting her whole “awakening”. Thank you but no thank you…

Suitable for beginner awakening, bit patronising

Narration is ok, many interesting perspectives and pieces of information but the author is very presumptuous of the reader's point of view, experience and culture which dampened my experience.
I continue to read on since there are many interesting insights to be learned and questions raised but I found many statements about "most men", "most women" and "culture expects" to be strongly out of alignment with my experience being an Australian born in the 80s.
I have found her explanations of "what women want" to be extremely uptight and racist and I couldn't relate, but if you have not undertaken much personal development perhaps this would appeal more.
I recall Oprah spruiking Dr Shefali and, as such, held her in high regard without researching ratings or the author. I am not compelled to hear more from her after this book.
It feels as though she's saying she's the only one who is so awakened living the only right way and the reader is locked in unhappiness. I couldn't relate to the presumptions but appreciate the growth it afforded me.

Amazing, insightful, tremendously helpful

One of the best audio books I’ve listened to. So insightful, inspiring and full of great real life examples. It helped me to ask myself some great questions I hadn’t thought of and most importantly helped me understand myself and the world we live in better. I got triggered a few times but it was actually a good thing! I found the book got really good from chapter 4 and kept getting better. So many ha-ha moments. I re-listened to a few chapters, a first for me with an audio book! Dr Shefali, thank you for sharing this masterpiece with the world!

1 of many opinions

I love this book because it is authentic. I also love my traditions and how my culture has shaped my beliefs. I agree that monogamy is outdated and unrealistic. Been married, was cheated on. Dated,
been cheated on. I call it cheating still :) will I ever find monogamy? Probably not, but I don’t depend on it for my happiness anymore. I’ll get a dog and a community to fulfil my needs - I’ve had enough horrible and nice relationships to tie me over until my inevitable death. I wholeheartedly agree on being enlightened and loving yourself. But I hope my ideal of
finding a monogamous relationship will happen - it would be nice :) I would never become a psychologist because you have to see everyone’s perspective and I’m sure psychologists are some of the most enlightened people but I choose to keep some of my cultures traditions in tact! Great listen! Enjoyed the book over all.

A Masterpiece! 😍😍😍

An Epic journey of self love, awareness, empowerment and accountability. Narrated with conviction & eloquence by the author. By far my most favorite book of 2021 . Dr. Shefali's understanding of human behavior especially those of women combined with her personal story makes this book impactful.

Pop psychology self help book

Being interested in psychology I was intrigued when I heard about this book. It is written by New York Times best selling author Dr Shefali Tsabary who has appeared on the Oprah TV show and is known for having views on conscious parenting.
Narrated by the author, this is primarily a self help book aimed at empowering straight cis women and is based on the author's strong opinions rather than anything evidence / research based. There is plenty of discussion of biology versus culture and how addressing pain is painful and needs an emotional seat belt and how easy it is to become caught in a fear / blame ./ shame cycle.

Despite the fact that this book is mostly the type of pseudo science found in glossy magazines and not particularly radical, there comes a point in everyone's life when it is time to remove obstacles to live as your authentic self and this book will serve as a useful catalyst for those in search of inspiration to take the first step towards this.

Dr Shefali speaks and writes from the heart, with knowledge and experience. This book may well change the World and I do not say that lightly. I wish I was reading this as a teenage girl, but what a gift to women of all ages and subsequently to men too!

Life changing

I’ve been on a deep healing journey for many years, looking for answers, trying to understand, searching for ways to fix my issues.
I’ve had therapy and I’m studying to be a therapist.
Many of the topics Dr Shefali discusses in this book are ones I have come to an understanding of naturally on my journey but hearing her affirm and confirm my realisations, my aha moments, has been profoundly liberating. Plus I have learned heaps more!
This is the kind of book that we need to gift to women in our lives because it is truly transformational. I will save a copy for when my daughter is older but I also want my sons to read it.
I would recommend you read this while journaling each chapter, each of the realisations you will have, the triggers, the discomfort, the reflections because through this process you will come to a place of not only rediscovering who you were before life/society/culture conditioned you, but of a rebirth into the fresh new you who has shed the old skin that was too small, too tight, too suffocating and by the end of the book, have grown a new stronger, shiny one.
I listened to this on Audible and found Dr. Shefali’s voice soothing, gentle, clear, warm. I’m glad I listened to it now.

A must read for every female

This is a real thought provoker! As the author says, you will probably feel triggered at several points and not want to read on and I definitely found this to be the case. But I am so glad I stuck with it! This is a must read for every female about stepping out of the shadows and into our power. 10 out of 10
