Free Author Reading Women and Girls Empowerment Fable #MeToo Dec 12 at 7 pm Writers and Books, 740 University Ave, 14607
I see the story as a key “handle” to self-healing, recovery, empowerment, and transformation. It is a simple metaphor that offers centering inner “links” to children and adults who feel they have lost their sense of self to be able to develop truly greater selves, and the wherewithal to successfully meet and transcend life’s challenges.
Bullying has finally become a key topic and recovery focus for our times. Merinda is fundamentally a story about understanding that bullying only continues to occur when we believe ourselves to be victims, which directly creates an inner “giveaway” of ourselves along with a covered-up “inner bully.” Like Merinda, we “please to survive.” Dysfunction creates and perpetuates unending power struggles in relationships endlessly ricocheting between dominance and submission. I am excited to tell Merinda’s story in all settings that commit to teambuilding, interdependence, new leadership skills, and healing partnerships.

Please come and bring your friends and family to this unique community event and holiday food drive to launch the empowerment fable for women and girls by Marjorie Baker Price, MErind and the Magic Mirror: A tiny Tale of Transformation just published through Productivity Publications. The book includes Your Magic Mirror by Marjorie and Kay Whipple, the special journaling and guided meditation section which follows the book. The book is available online at Amazon.com and other online bookstores as well as to order at any bookstore across the country. Merinda and the Magic Mirror presents a little girl who is so caught up in “pleasing to survive” that she is unaware that she is cut off from being able to listen and be her own authentic self. It presents her journey of transformation, looking within to find herself, knowing she really can freely, creatively respond in empowered ways. It breaks repeated cycles of dependence and abuse, supporting self-healing and inner trust.
