Pre-Orders of Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms

I am delighted to announce that from 1 June 2020 I will be taking pre-orders for my forthcoming book, Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms, due for actual release by Moon Books in March 2021.

Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms
The Dark Goddess is often associated with the Underworld where she leads the uninitiated through a transformative journey of self-discovery, change and soul renewal.  She is connected with the unwanted, the forgotten, the ignored or even ashamed parts of our psyche.  However there is more to her than that.

Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms guides you through what this challenging facet of the Divine Feminine, the Dark Goddess, is truly about, and encourages you to step through the veils into her hidden realm to explore 13 aspects of herself.

Whether you seek healing from past trauma, release from fears or acceptance of the “unacceptable” aspects of your self, Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms offers ways for you to transform and heal your life through the power of meditation, ritual and inner journeying with the Dark Goddess into her shadowy realms.  Use the 13 goddess myths as a guide to discover how to remove the stagnant and unwanted and embrace the ever changing aspects of life that can drag us into the pits of despair.

When we connect the Dark Goddess, we are able to find the light within the darkness and our lives are enriched through the integration of all aspects of our soul as a perfect whole.

"We will all encounter the Dark Goddess, whether we want to or not. She will challenge us, butt us up against those aspects of ourselves we do not wish to see, maybe in the most painful way, but she will transform us. I found this book a moving and insightful guide to working with the Dark Goddess in her many aspects, with inspired rituals, meditations, invocations and other tools for the undertaking. Highly recommended." (Anna Franklin, author of The Hearth Witch’s Compendium as well as the Sacred Circle and Pagan Ways tarot decks, and much more)

"This book provides cathartic measures as a self-help guide towards restoration of the psyche in a world that has largely overcomplicated the divine feminine, and to some extent, overplayed Her role as a ‘Dark’ entity. Described by the author as She who “shakes and destroys in order to transform and recreate, pushing us to our limits,” the Dark Goddess is related through 13 specific forms that “could be used to chart a year’s journey of deep discovery.” (Shani Oates, author of many books including Tubelo's Green Fire, The Arcane Veil, and Star-Crossed Serpent Volumes I-IV).

Encountering the Dark Goddess is recommended without reservation to anyone seeking a greater understanding of not only the concept of Deity, but more importantly, a sincere desire to see their own reflection in the divine mirror. But, be forewarned, the journey is not to be taken lightly. And what you will see in the mirror may be far removed from what you imagine." (Jimahl di Fiosa, author of A Voice in the Forest, All the King's Children and A Coin for the Ferryman).
