HARI OM
One of the joys of writing Yoni Shakti has been connecting with a whole host of truly inspiring women doing wonderful work for the upliftment and empowerment of women through yoga, tantra and other means. Each chapter ends with a full set of links for being in touch with women working around the issues of spirituality, creativity, fertility, sexuality and other radicalised areas of life such as all aspects of women's health and deep ecology.

Below you will find the full set of links form the book to create a live online resource for networking. I am working towards providing helpful commentary for each link, which will be uploaded over the next few weeks.

In the first instance, I encourage a visit to the following inspiring sites.

WOMB YOGA
www.wombyoga.org
is the site to visit for further information about my own training courses in yoga for women's health, pregnancy, postnatal recovery and yoga therapy. The site also has resources to support your practice, and a listing of teachers who have trained with me over the years who are now working across the planet. If you sign up for the newsletter, then regular updates and inspiration are sent out to you.

YOGA NIDRA
www.yoganidranetwork.org
Free downloads of YOGA NIDRA practices in seven different European languages (more coming!) are one of the delights on offer at the YOGA NIDRA NETWORK site which I established together with my husband Nirlipta Tuli. Our intention is to provide an openhearted and celebratory online space for everything related to YOGA NIDRA. There are resources, training courses, retreats, free downloads and a great listing of teachers across Europe who are sharing yoga nidra in many different ways. Well worth a visit:

WOMENS QUEST
www.womensquest.org
For a global online inspirational community of women who consciously honour menstruality, then this is your site! Established by Alexandra Pope (my menstrual guru!) and clinical hypnotherapist Sjanie Hugo, WOMEN'S QUEST is the place to visit to connect with an intelligent and thoughtful exploration of menstruality and cyclical wisdom as a spiritual practice for all women. Events, community support, retreats, workshops and trainings are all on offer

CHERISH THE CUNT
www.cherishthecunt.com
www.justcolette.wordpress.com
These inspirational sites are the work of the very wonderful Colette Nolan, otherwise known as The Lady Cuntlove. She is a gifted young poet, sexual health activist and entrepreneur who is currently carrying her cunt-cherishing campaign into the development of a range of sexual education resources for young people.

ANGELA FARMER
www.angela-victor.com
To connect with the unfolding power of the deep feminine in yoga, then there is one very special teacher whom I encourage you to encounter. Still touring the world and sharing her brilliant, nourishing and profound teachings, Angela is the business!

EMMA CANNON
www.emmacannon.co.uk
My very top London tip for acupuncture and TCM that honours and supports women's health at all stages of our lives, especially in relation to fertility and menstrual health.

WOMEN WRITERS TRUST
www.hoskinghouses.co.uk
Without the support of this wonderful trust, Yoni Shakti would never have been written. Thank you Sarah Hoskings.

To explore a little wider, here's a great list of fabulous positive work on the web to support and inspire you:
