In Her Sacred Name available very shortly

I am absolutely delighted to announce that my second book, In Her Sacred Name: Writings on the Divine Feminine will be available for purchase as of Monday, 27 October 2014 from Createspace and shortly after that, from all Amazon affilitated stores before being released on Kindle. 

The first evidence of the worship of the Goddess, or at least the female principle, dated back to around 35,000 BCE with the discovery of "Venus figurines", and throughout time, has been honoured in various cultures all around the world.


In Her Sacred Name: Writings on the Divine Feminine contains a collection of essays that I have written during my time as a columnist for the now defunct Insight magazine, most of which have been updated and expanded upon.
 
Divided into four main sections, In Her Sacred Name: Writings on the Divine Feminine brings together historial as well as personal perceptions of the Goddess, the Divine Feminine, as well as focusing on 13 specific aspect as She appeared within various cultures including Egyptian, Greek and Roman, Celtic, African and ancient Mesopotamian.  The third section offers insight into many differing combinations of the Sacred She, including discussion about the seven Goddesses who appear in the ever popular "Goddess Chant" (originally penned by Deena Metzger and Caitlin Mullen) and the favoured Triple Goddess.  The fourth and final section contains a selection of ideas of how to establish a deeper connection with the Divine Feminine in the modern age, from the construction of shrines and altars, to attuning with the various energies and performing rituals.

For all those wonderful people who have already pre-ordered, I am expecting a delivery early November (unfortunately not in time for the Australia Goddess Conference that is taking place on 24 to 26 October 2014).  I will still be taking pre-orders from anyone wishing to take advantage of the special introductory price of $25.00 (including postage) for a personally autographed copy through Paypal.  This offer will only be available until the first order of books have been sold.
