Through fluid poses, the Pinwheel Girls tell the story of going inside, unfolding, surfacing, expanding, ascending, coming back down, and sharing visions as they chronicle profound personal change with poetic Messages from the Wind. These messages are delivered during seven stages of transformation featured in the 258-page book, The Pinwheel Girl Takes Flight ~ Every Woman s Journey through Seven Stages of Transformation. The Pinwheel Girls encourage women to explore their depths and heights and embrace authenticity by listening to instinct found in the Wind, a metaphor for the Inner Voice. Encouraging liberation, the Pinwheel Girls resonate with women who don t want to be pinned down and stuck anymore. They tell the story of Every Woman.

One day she decided not to listen
She got off the stick
And stopped spinning
She followed the wind
And found something she had lost
Answers come when you listen
To the sound of your own voice
Whispering on the wind
Keys to your dreams
Unlocking all of your potential
For love, for life, for freedom...
--The Pinwheel Girl Takes Flight
Kendra Kett lives outside Chicago with her young son, where they both spend time drawing, writing, singing, dancing and creating. She earned degrees in Psychology and Education and is an award-winning school administrator for young children. She has used symbolic sight and poetic metaphor since early childhood when her love for the mystical truly began. At the age of four, she recalls harnessing the strength of empowerment when she was hospitalized for, and survived, a life-threatening illness that had killed a prior generation of women in her family. She considers herself a survivor of not just serious illness but also the numbing routinization of life, the dull ache of abandoned dreams, the sorrowful errors of youth, the blind following of rules and scripts, and the regrets that come with not knowing. Kendra was first inspired to create the Pinwheel Girls by a line in one of her poems. They were also inspired by actual pinwheels and by the Wind. In a poem Kett described herself as a pinwheel girl twirling in the wind on her way to nowhere. Like a pinwheel she was stuck to the Earth by a long, unyielding stick. Her four limbs, like the parts of the pinwheel, were pinned to that stick, unexpressive most of her waking life. Spinning like a pinwheel, she felt out of control in a dizzying state of lifelessness. But a mid-life transition and a series of magical coincidences allowed Kett to become, literally, unstuck and an unfolding began. She wanted to draw what she was experiencing and the first Pinwheel Girl was born. Naturally, she was twirling... She created the Pinwheel Girls for every woman who knows how it feels to pretend to be less than you are.
