Sacred Lady is a term coined by Connie Omari that emphasizes the highest degree to which a woman creates her best self. Connie begins the sacred journey by inviting her readers to understand the ways in which a lack of a rite of passage for women in the United States severely hinders our emotional and psychological welfare. Recognizing the absence of such a formal ritual, Connie models the concept of a Sacred Lady by utilizing her clinical, educational, international, and spiritual experiences to create a rite of passage specififi c to the needs of women in the United States.

By utilizing these themes, Connie incorporates her knowledge of evidence-based practices and her relationship with God to educate and empower her readers. In doing so, Connie dares to challenge societal norms and expectations, uncovers avenues for embarking upon personal healing, and creates a pathway for her readers to empower themselves, their families, their communities, and the greater world.
