In this call of awakening, thunder reminds us that healthy confidence belongs to us all. It is not a shallow indulgence, but a profound spiritual need.

Our confidence—or lack of it—impacts everything in our lives, shaping how we speak, how we interact, and what we think is possible for ourselves.



Charged with introspective questions and journaling prompts, Throwing Thunder is an immersive journey into the heart of our confidence challenges, awakening the memory that unworthiness does not exist in the matrix of the living earth. An earth-based model of confidence reminds us of our innate enoughness, which exists despite our fears, flaws, and insecurities and the ways we try to separate ourselves from the wholeness of our being.


Throwing Thunder won the 2022



"In THROWING THUNDER, Kendra Ward–a skilled acupuncturist and herbalist–has written a healing and empowering book filled with resources, exercises, journal prompts, and encouragement for self-discovery. She uses archetypes and cultural touchstones to decimate the way women have been taught to be ashamed of what makes them extraordinary. A well-written, well-crafted and well-researched book that is both challenging and relatable."

"Throwing Thunder expresses a passionate commitment and deep concern for the authentic 'feminine voice,' wherever it arises, whether in a person, an animal, a plant, even a weather system. This book takes a powerful stand for the transformational potency and healing necessity of that voice, celebrating the re-emergence of this archetypal force in all its unpredictable wildness and beauty."


- Lorie Eve Dechar, author of Five Spirits and The Alchemy of Inner Work


“Throwing Thunder puts an invigorating call out to your soul to come back into sacred relationship with yourself and all of life.”


- Renee Baribeau, Award winning Hay House Author, Winds of Spirit


"Kendra’s sure feminine confidence and wildly evocative language call to a deeply soulful part of ourselves as she deftly guides us on a journey of awakening the forces of nature within. She speaks from direct experience of what it means to live with an awareness that is intimately connected to the living world and in relationship with all of life. Both practical and valuable, Kendra shows us this is a true way to be empowered as a woman."


- Mary Saunders, author of Rhythms of Change
