“Born to Receive is the missing half of the equation that equals flourishing health. This book gives you the steps to becoming a healthy, happy receiver!” —Christiane Northrup, M.D., ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers: Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
“Women have finely-tuned the art of giving – now it’s time to learn how to receive with grace and gratitude. The practical tools and tips contained in Born to Receive will help you to develop the critical skills needed to transition from simply surviving to joyfully thriving.” —Lois P. Frankel, Ph.D., author of Nice Girls Don’t Get the Corner Office
“Amanda Owen takes on a big problem—women’s difficulty in asking for and receiving what they want. Women are expert at giving—at being endlessly generous, thoughtful, and self-sacrificing. Born to Receive teaches us that women need to complement these skills with those of receiving, of learning how to ask for and accept what we want. Using wit, anecdotes, exercises, and helpful insights, she turns this task into one that is manageable and promises to be very helpful. Owen makes the convincing case that wholeness comes from the joint activity of giving and receiving. Women are experts at giving, but can surely use the help she offers to become equally expert at receiving.”—Rosalind C. Barnett, Ph.D., co-author of The New Soft War on Women: How the Myth of Female Ascendance is Hurting Women, Men—and the Economy, and senior scientist at Women’s Studies Research Center, Brandeis University
“When you want to take on the life of your dreams, you will want to know how to ‘receive’ help. Born to Receive is a practical guide for women to lean in to super powers that don’t involve grabbing and forcing. Through clear insights and techniques, Amanda Owen shows us how to actively engage our right to receive and specific ways to start opening the floodgates.” —Tama Kieves, best-selling author of This Time I Dance! Creating the Work You Love and Inspired & Unstoppable: Wildly Succeeding in Your Life’s Work!
“Born to Receive is a must-read for anyone who believes that receiving is taking, or selfish—and consequently feels depleted, unbalanced, or resentful. Amanda Owen has done an amazing job of exploring why we need and deserve to get more out of life, and how to do it.” —Lori Deschene, Founder of tinybuddha.com and author of Tiny Buddha’s Guide to Loving Yourself
