CHALICE: Women Leaders Rise Movie

CHALICE: Women Leaders Rise Movie

Follow the movie production behind the scenes on Instagram @thisiskaia Women are important. But you wouldn’t know that from looking at history books. Our contributions and names have been omitted and ignored for centuries. Recently the United Nations released a report that as many as 200 million women are missing in the world. I believe there’s a connection between the consciousness that devalues women’s contributions, and the global disappearance of women. Now more than ever before, we need women leaders! Join me as I share my own story and interview fascinating women about how to claim our power and create a partnership society. The film is in production. Sign up to hear about the release!

WRITTEN IN THE ASHES

WRITTEN IN THE ASHES

Kaia’s debut historical novel, Written in the Ashes, features the untold story of the events that led up to the burning of the Great Library of Alexandria, Egypt. It follows the life and death of celebrated philosopher/astronomer Hypatia of Alexandria. A novel full of powerful women working together against impossible odds, it’s one of the first books of its kind to illustrate the hero’s journey for women.

“Written in the Ashes is one of those rare novels that sets ‘history’ afire, to bathe readers in the glow of a greater, hotter truth. Fans of the Mists of Avalon will find this romantic/alchemical/feminist/spiritual epic equally captivating.” -Tom Robbins, New York Times bestselling author of Even Cowgirls Get the Blues
