The transformation that has occurred in women's lives during the past three decades has brought new opportunities and challenges. Many of us struggled to achieve success and recognition in the business, professional, and corporate world. We made the heroine's journey in a Man's World, and we learned and adapted to the rules of the game set by men. This progress has come with a price tag—a disconnection from our hearts and souls as women. Generally this phenomenon has been recognized as the "wounded feminine" at midlife. During this stage many of us search for deeper meaning to make sense of our past and to inspire us into the future.
The Healing Well is a personal story of Sumedha Khannas’ midlife transition from being a successful in a Man's World to becoming whole as a woman. It is a story of her wounded feminine, and how she was able to reunite her masculine and her feminine into a complete self. Her transformational journey took her through uncharted territory during which she questioned the price of the success, and how to retrieve her soul. While searching for her own healing, she created the Healing Well, a center of integral health for women in her community, dedicated to women in their midlife and beyond where they could gather to explore and share their life stories and bring healing to themselves and each other.
Women are wells of wisdom, knowledge, creativity, imagination, love, patience, and power. We have taken many different paths in our lives, yet our inner well of wisdom has always guided us toward our deeper selves. The well of wisdom within us is clamoring to spring forth with the depth of knowledge necessary to heal and sustain the world. We can heal the world's wounds through embracing our soulful, purposeful life, by sharing our stories and wisdom, and by creating nurturing sanctuaries in our homes and communities. This is the message and challenge of The Healing Well. May the book inspire you on your healing journey.
