New York: Riverhead Books, 1998. The Bond Between Women: A Journey To Fierce Compassion.

The Bond Between Women : A Journey to Fierce Compassion. Weaving myth and travel narrative into a record of the spiritual journey, the author celebrates the fierce compassion of goddess archetypes and explores their influence and incarnation in the heroines of modern times.

In "The Bond Between Women", author China Galland embarks on yet another spiritual odyssey, this time attending . No woman should not read the bond between women, China Galland has given her readers a journey to enlightment on the page.

Whether she is learning about child prostitution in Nepal, serving salad on the streets of San Francisco, or discussing the Vietnam War with Sister Chan Khong, Galland illustrates both the horrendous difficulties, pain and trauma these women face; and their remarkable courage in rising above them.

The first way station is Nepal, where we see Galland receiving spiritual teachings from lamas and worrying about rampant child prostitution and AIDS.

If they are not possible just yet, she’s driven by pain-hers, and the world’s-to make them so. This book narrates Galland’s quest to resolve her personal pain and rage and her examination of the outrageous suffering that exists in many parts of the world. The first way station is Nepal, where we see Galland receiving spiritual teachings from lamas and worrying about rampant child prostitution and AIDS. Here, the main theme of her personal suffering is reflected in global problems of sexual cruelty and ignorance. And she’s very angry about all of it.

Her next book, The Bond Between Women, a Journey to Fierce Compassion (Riverhead) gave voice to the passionate lives of women activists struggling spiritually and physically to overcome violence and hatred in Brazil, India, Vietnam, and the . Her newest book, Love Cemetery (HarperOne) tells a quintessential American story of race, land theft, environmental destruction, and family, The story of Galland's.

Across the world in Argentina, Galland interviews women whose children ""disappeared"" during the repressive military regime of the late 1970s and early 1980s

Across the world in Argentina, Galland interviews women whose children ""disappeared"" during the repressive military regime of the late 1970s and early 1980s. These women still demonstrate weekly in the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires, committed to airing the troth of the murders of their loved ones. Other women battle injustice more quietly, but no less dramatically, as with Sister Jessie, who campaigns to increase literacy among poor women and children in India, or an American woman hwo is crusading to de-pollute the sacred Ganges River there.

Her book, The Bond Between Women: A Journey to Fierce Compassion was a finalist for the "Best Spiritual Book" award . And by bringing wholeness to her life, China has given all of us a more complete vision of God, a vision of Mary’s dark face as the feminine face of God.

Her book, The Bond Between Women: A Journey to Fierce Compassion was a finalist for the "Best Spiritual Book" award for a Better Life. Galland is one of the world's foremost authorities on the Black or Dark Madonnas. China has traveled all throughout Europe to the shrines of the Black Madonna. The Black Madonnas are dark-skinned icons of the Virgin Mary, and for China, they serve as a corrective to the omnipresent images of God as white-skinned and male.

Part travel memoir, part spiritual pilgrimage, and part call to action, The Bond Between Women takes the reader to Nepal, India, Brazil, Argentina, and back to America to meet women - both mythological and real - of fierce compassion. Their stories form the heart of this narrative, into which Galland weaves strands of her own searing, personal journey. Re-creations of ancient myths of goddesses from around the world thread through this story of the power of the bond between women.

The first-person experiential style of writing is very inspiring, and I plan to eventually finish reading and contemplating the numerous moving stories of the entire book. I purchased this book specifically for Chapter 21, “I Do Not Rehearse My Anger” - The Teaching of Sister Chân Không. Taken from page 277, 'After the bombing of Saigon, the city was littered with forty thousand bodies, decomposing in the tropical heat.' She helped the Red Cross carry away and bury many of the bodies. She could not eat for many days because of the odor.' She is quoted on page 277, “I looked deeply into these forty thousand and I saw only suffering dead bodies. I did not see that they were Communist or mercenary. I saw that they were my brothers and sisters. And it made me cry every day.”

Throughout the Viet Nam War, after repeated bombings of their houses, their farmlands, their schools, Chân Không sang songs to keep herself alive in the midst burying all of the dead and repeatedly rebuilding their homes, schools and communities. She witnessed and experienced unimaginable pain, frustration and horror, and in the midst of her anger, she was moved by a little flower blooming and making its way through all of the ruin. She asked herself, “Oh, the little flower has done her best, why not me?”

She is again quoted on page 280, "I do not rehearse my anger. I have to look deep into my anger with a serene mind, and I will see the roots of my anger and the fruit of my action."

Continuing the quote, “I walked several hours, almost all day long, to calm my anger. Sometimes in the war I was so angry that I walked for several days. But I refrained from doing anything except small things like cleaning, small work, helping people carry wood, distributing food, but not getting carried away by big action like joining that side or the other side or shouting or screaming or doing something very drastic."

The quote begins on page 279:
“We walk,” she answers. “We focus our attention on the breath
Page 280
and the step. So, on the in-breath, I take one or two steps, on the out-breath, I take one or two steps. I dwell in my breath and in my steps to dissociate myself from the anger. It doesn’t mean I surrender and suppress my anger. I will go back to my anger, but when I am quieter, when I obtain more serenity.

In "The Bond Between Women", author China Galland embarks on yet another spiritual odyssey, this time attending various festivals celebrating the Divine Feminine. Whether she is learning about child prostitution in Nepal, serving salad on the streets of San Francisco, or discussing the Vietnam War with Sister Chan Khong, Galland illustrates both the horrendous difficulties, pain and trauma these women face; and their remarkable courage in rising above them. Especially moving was the chapter on the Disappeared in Argentina.
This book highlights little-known or discussed issues facing women worldwide, and would be valued enough for that alone. It also realistically grapples with the complicated structures of forgiveness, setting boundaries, and healing. A superb spiritual work that crosses denominational lines.
MEGA FREEDY
This book remains my favorite of all time. I have read, studied, & treasured countless books about the Divine Feminine, but none compare to this woman's spiritual courage and sensitivity. It made me enraged & it broke me down to tears- Never have I been more proud to be a woman on this journey. A reviewer below criticized the author for finding enlightenment in forgiveness and resolution in righteous action. We are NOT here on this earth to deliver retribution, but to evolve and come into full SPIRITUAL POWER. Anyone can pursue revenge and remain in a self-righteous, angry abyss, but it takes a very refined soul, courageous heart, and deep spiritual intelligence to accomplish what this author has. I feel pity for those who missed the revolutionary purpose of this book. Goddess bless you, China Galland for taking me into your hell and your heaven- the journey was unforgettable and will live in my own life and actions forever.

This book is very powerful and it will enable tools for you to take charge of your life. It brought out every emotion in me imaginable. It addressed many of the issues women endure from past to present.
As an author of Embrace the Light-a womans story through poetry to touch your heart I was touched by this book.

The first time I read this book it made me cry, I never had experienced so much emotion for a author before. China Galland is open and honest, she shares her very personal experience with the reader and bridges the gap between western society and buddist cultures fabulosly. The book moved me so much I have given it to another 5 people including some men to read and only wish everybody could realise that this book is truely unique.
