Louise LeBrun, author and founder of The WEL-Systems Institute invited seventeen women participants and facilitators of the WEL-Systems growth experience to contribute narratives about their personal journeys and transformations to become more authentically themselves. "Each has had to come face-to-face with herself; not just who she wanted to be but who she has already become" (p.2). The introduction aptly warns the reader: "Be well warned: these women are highly contagious!"(p. 4). Each courageous and challenging story invites the reader to awaken to their own potential testimonies and to actively choose their own meaningful life opportunities.
