Get Real! takes a historical look at how the messages that women have followed for several generations have kept them from focusing on their own inner development, thus becoming mythic women and cheating themselves out of joyful and fulfilling lives. So many women come to a point in their lives where they wonder if they are only the roles they play. The next question they ask is how they got there.
Get Real! discusses the path from the doldrums of mythic living to living an authentic life from the heart using the author’s own experiences and stories of other women.
"So many women in my life worked hard to be the Mythic Woman and now wonder why they are so unhappy, suffering from multiple health problems and depression. GET REAL! is a cri de coeur to women to 'listen to your inner voice, find[ing] your Authentic Self and become[ing] the person you truly want to be.'"
"What makes the difference is that Ananya walks hand in hand with us every step of the way. Her complete acceptance of human weakness, the truthfulness and caring she displays, and above all, the utter lack of pretentiousness of her style of writing bring our defenses down, allowing us to look at, without fear, the layers of cultural and gender conditioning that obscures our real nature. In short, it is the authenticity of the author herself that provides the magic in this book."
