Isabel Allende's message to women: Be passionate and change the world!

Isabel Allende

I have loved Isabel Allende's books over the years.  Blending that special Latin magical realism with history, both real and imagined, her stories capture the passion possible through characters that mirror our world.

She was a guest speaker for a TED conference.  These 18 minutes will make you laugh and will inspire you towards the change that most of us are wishing for our world:  justice, freedom and kindness.  This was filmed in 2007 but is more than relevant for today.

See her books and learn more about Isabel Allende on her website.



  1. thank you for sharing this. i will share it with others. a most powerful message.

  2. That was great, Rachel. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. Glad you both liked it! Someone else sent it to me and I put off watching it because of the time commitment. Ha! Worth every minute!


“Sing like no one's listening, love like you've never been hurt, dance like nobody's watching, and live like it's heaven on earth.”

“Whatever you say, say it with conviction.”

(Both by the master, Mark Twain)
