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.

With passionate encouragement and heartfelt advice she dishes up a full gamut of women’s wisdom: from spirituality to vulnerability, intuition, perfectionism, libido, creating time, expressing the Crazy Woman and more.
As Lucy reminds us “the message of love or beauty or hope needs to be said by a hundred thousand different voices, written by a hundred thousand different pens, at a hundred thousand different times in history”. On each page, as she shares her own labor of love, she enthusiastically invites us all to cultivate our creative expression… in the midst of motherhood.
