This raw and relatable guide to radical self-care and self-love empowers readers to embrace the powerful Diosa within.
In this fiercely inspiring book from a fresh new voice in the women's empowerment space, psychotherapist Christine Gutierrez welcomes women to join her in healing the wounds from past hurt or trauma to reclaim their worth and come back home to their true self and soul.
Diosa is the Spanish word for Goddess. A diosa is anyone who honors the primal feminine energy in the world and within themselves. According to Gutierrez, diosas face obstacles in their lives but are always ready and willing to go to their core to reclaim their inner worth and self-esteem. They are the ones that rise from the ashes and dare to piece themselves back together bone by bone and soul piece by soul piece. From stories of resilience from both Gutierrez and members of her Diosa Tribe, to mantras, meditations, and guided journaling prompts, this book gives women the tools they need to honor their sacred feminine and become who they were always meant to be.
I Am Diosa will inspire women to give themselves permission to feel, to be seen, to be heard, and to return to their truest selves.

“I Am Diosa is the book we all need right now. Christine masterfully weaves psychology, soul, and her compelling personal story as an offering to come back home to our true, unbroken, and Diosa selves. I Am Diosa is raw and real, and though Christine is an “expert” and therapist, she speaks in the language of an hermana. She is a welcome and much-needed voice in the all-too-white world of “self-help.” Christine’s gift is that she speaks from the wholeness of her truth leaving nothing out—shadow, trauma, or addiction. She has worked hard to heal, she has earned her scars, and her journey is our initiation.” —Robyn Moreno, author & Curandera
