Lucy H. Pearce, 32, lives and breathes the creative rainbow mother archetype in a little pink house on the south coast of Ireland. She is an established writer, editor, artist, women's workshop facilitator and mother of three young children (aged 8, 5, and 3).
Lucy's book is a gift of beauty that feels like a waterfall of sweet nectar flowing upon the flower of our soul. With tender warmth, the author takes our hand and invites us on the magical journey of authentic self expression. Walking beside us each step of the way, she encourages our unfolding dance of creativity with a rainbow of inspirations and ideas. Guided by Lucy's vibrant support, each woman will traverse her unique path of creative self discovery... a path that leads us to the exquisitely fulfilling experience of inner communion and outer expression. -- Mara Berendt Friedman, celebrated artist of the sacred feminine We're dedicated to our kids, but can't afford to lose ourselves in the chaos of motherhood. So how do we do it? This book is the generous answer - and the most important survival guide creative mothers will ever read. -- Ariel Gore, founding editor of Hip Mama The Rainbow Way is much more than a practical guide for mothers to stay creative, it is a spiritual and personal journey to understand the essence of one's true self. This book is big and all encompassing. Lucy has managed to cover almost every aspect of working creatively from specific exercises and tools to the psychology of fears, doubt, vulnerability, courage and sensitivity. She discusses with nuance and insightfulness the ideas of finding flow, needing a muse, intuition, using dreams, and imagination. She understands and has experience working with other mothers and values the importance of supporting each other. The testaments from other mothers about the absolute need to be creative in their lives while raising children are wonderful, inspiring and sometimes painful. But all experiences we can relate to-even if one is not a mother. In all ways, Lucy, has depicted every color of the rainbow in this book. It inspired me greatly and I know it will inspire so many others. The best gift of all from this rainbow of ideas is that our creative force as mothers will not only help us grow but it will help our children grow into creative, caring and compassionate human beings. -- Mary Trunk, filmmaker, director of Lost in Living a documentary film about creative mothers
