Cinda Stevens Lonsway is an inspirational author, writer and speaker. As a young girl, she would write long uplifting messages of gratitude and support for her family – her father labeled them the Cinda Card. This kind of support spurred her love for writing and a deep desire to reach out and make a difference in people’s lives….. an inspirational writer was born.
Cinda writes for her blog, Cinda’s ROAR!, Wild Sister Magazine, and the global online community of BraveHeart Women. She has a published children’s book, Tommy T and continues to work on multiple novels and a memoir. Cinda is a ROAR! workshop facilitator, based on her highly publicized article ROAR! which went viral in 2010.
In May of 2010, Cinda woke up to the rhythm of a story being born. She raced to her notebook and tried to keep up as the message of ROAR! raced through her. This powerful piece of poetry, prose, and parable, represents her personal awakening to the calling of Mother Nature and women’s spiritual needs from around the globe. ROAR! is a true call to action for women to Stand Up and Give Voice to Their Truth. Since, hundreds of women (and men) have ROAR!ed with Cinda.
In January of 2008, Cinda participated with Oprah and Eckhart Tolle in their global online classroom for the highly inspirational book A New Earth. Her life changing moment came, when she asked Eckhart, “When you say, Evolve or Die, do you mean it literally?” Eckhart’s answer, “Yes.” In that moment, Cinda decided to evolve and help others to do the same.
Cinda’s biggest JOY comes from sitting with women who have recently woken up to their spiritual calling and are seeking spiritual guidance, counseling, and validation that they are not alone in their journey and experience. Her deepest desire is to use her words to make a difference in peoples’ lives, be it through her writing or speaking. She is available for one on one sessions, groups, workshops, and public speaking events.
Her next ambitious project is in partnership with artist Manon Doyle from Scottsdale, Arizona. With Manon’s illustrations of ROAR!ing women and Cinda’s words, they visualize a traveling art exhibit, visually immersing women from around the globe into ROAR!ing their truth.
Cinda lives in Portland, Oregonian with her husband, two sons, a faithful golden retriever, and two very high-maintenance cats.
