Born to Receive approaches the imbalance between giving and receiving as women in our society. That makes us feel unappreciated, exhausted, resentful and depleted.

Through exercises, examples and arguments Amanda Owen explores how to balance activity and receptivity and regain our feminine power, emphasizing the importance of receiving as well as giving.


A complement of her first book The Power of Receiving. Some ideas are in both books and offer a longer explanation in one of them, and others are completely different. I have both books. So I go back and forth between them.

Topics as intuition, gratitude, reciprocity or fear of conflict aren’t new, but Amanda Owen gives her unique view of these subjects after decades dedicated to them. This book helps to internalize these issues with tools for daily practice and ideas that are food for thought.
