The Path of the Empress explores the feminine power of transformation and how women can harness their power and sexuality.

Over a thousand years ago the concubine Wu Zhao became Chinas most powerful woman. Her intelligence and erotic aura, combined with her knowledge of the art of war, led her to become empress and the only woman who ever officially ruled ancient China. Her faithful adviser was the wise shaman and doctor Sun Simiao, guardian of age-old secrets of feminine wisdom and power.

Inspired by Wu Zhao and ancient Chinese texts, The Path of the Empress describes the ten important stages of a womans life, and focuses on exercises and magical herbal elixirs that open up the mind and soul to new insights and solutions.

A classic in Europe, the book has become a favourite gift chosen by women to give to the women in their family and to their female friends and colleagues.

Ulja Krautwald

Author

Ulja Krautwald was born in Hamburg to a family of craftspeople. Her father was a self-employed housepainter and her mother worked from home, taking telephone calls and looking after the accounts for the painting business.

Ulja studied Sociology, which she found at times somewhat dry, but which provided her with a dispassionate view of all scientific matters and of current social trends.  She understands how scientific studies can be manipulated and that so-called truths may serve financial interests.

Joyfully she observes the change in consciousness taking place in our society, and she is convinced that we are in the midst of a huge spiritual transformation process.

Early in life Ulja developed an interest in alternative healing and the wisdom of the Far East. She has meditated for many years and draws strength from silence and from nature.

Her two children are now grown up, and she takes great delight in being a grandmother.

Ulja Krautwaldcontinues to live in Hamburg, where she works as a writer and publisher, and runs her own business, providing the herbs required for the Elixirs of the Empress. She likes to walk along the River Elbe, gathering driftwood.
