As a young child in the Soviet satellite of Czechoslovakia, Julia Indichova — a reproductive healthcare advocate and peace activist — grew up in the shadow of a shameful chapter in human history. Her older brother, grandmothers, and aunt had been murdered in the Shoah and her parents were both concentration camp survivors. Attempting to come to terms with this tragic legacy became a central driving force in her life as did her struggles with a diagnosis of infertility. The One-Heart Revolution documents a peace-birthing practice that emerged after 9/11 through the two strains of Indichova’s interests: fertility and the desire to understand the underlying causes of violence. Shining a light of hope into the gathering darkness of our time, the book is a clarion call to anyone compelled to tilt the scale toward a kinder human ecology.
