Book Details

Take Back Your Brain exposes how the patriarchy hijacks our minds and wrecks our confidence-and shows how to break free once and for all. For a long time, Kara Loewentheil wasn’t sure why she, like so many ambitious women, still wrestled with insecurity and low self-esteem, despite two Ivy League degrees, a successful law career, and a thriving social life. After breaking down under her desk one day, she decided enough was enough. Kara learned the power of thought work, became a Master Certified Life Coach, rewired her brain to overcome sexist social messages, and began to coach other women to do the same. Now in Take Back Your Brain, she shows you how to undo the socialisation you never asked for, starting with reprogramming your core beliefs from patriarchy’s corrosive influence. Weaving cognitive psychology and feminist theory with practical thought work exercises, this book teaches you to: Identify the conscious and unconscious biases that infiltrate your self-talk Replace self-critical thoughts with new Self-affirming beliefs Embrace your emotions without fear of being seen as “too much” Create new, empowered thought patterns around how you relate to your body, finances, and relationships Stop relying on others for validation and start building self-confidence from within By changing your thoughts, you can transform your emotions, actions, the direction of your life, and ultimately the world. Because when women unleash their true power, they awaken new possibilities for all of us.
