  • Good Pussy Bad Pussy
    A. Aimee
    Society has ideas about how a pussy can be good or bad / 5 Stars

    Society has ideas about how a pussy can be good or bad, but those ideas don't match what's in Rachel's secret heart. She feels compelled to seek her own experiences with sex and what that means to her. This brings her close to a number of men, from the half-crazed Howard whose life is totally off track, to the powerful Albert who has it all and then finds out he has everything to lose. Other men too, mean that Rachel runs the gamut of emotions. By immersing herself in sex with each of these men, she learns how different they truly are, and learns more and more about who she really is.

    Check out this book about expanding boundaries through sex, danger, and vulnerability. ~ Tim Spencer , Amazon

  • Your Simple Path
    Ian Tucker
    There are so many things in this world that bog us down and keep us from living authentically and happily. For Ian Tucker he was experiencing success but realized that there was so much more to life and why he was here. In the book YOUR SIMPLE PATH he shares some of those lessons and allows us to see how we can begin to use it along our own quest.

    One of the big points that Ian makes is this: "What happens when you realise that there’s so much more to life than the job title, or the house that you live in, or the car that you drive, or the clothes that you wear, or even what other people think of you (especially what other people think of you)." This reminds us that it's not how others see us. It's all about how we see ourselves and who we are.

    This means we have to be willing to let down our ego and really be honest with ourselves: who we are and where we want to go. Then there is this question that Ian poses: "Does your happiness depend on something that may or may not happen in the future?" If it does, he makes this jolting declaration: "If so, you are basing your peace of mind on absolute uncertainty, not a great platform or foundation for inner peace. It begins to sound like a lottery and we all know the odds on a lottery win!" This shows us that we have to be so careful where we put our trust and how we choose to live each day. It does no good to worry, because as Ian reminds us "worrying is like praying for something you don’t want."

    We have to walk by faith and realize the possibilities ahead of us. If we are ready to bring peace and happiness into our worlds then we can truly find the simple path and follow it towards our destiny. ~ Cyrus Webb, Amazon US

  • Transforming Pandora
    Carolyn Mathews
    When you read the blurb for Transforming Pandora, you can be forgiven for thinking that it is going to be a spiritual ‘New Age’ story of someone ‘finding themselves’, but that is not really what it is. Yes there is a spiritual element to this book, but it is just the icing on the cake, so to speak, of a wonderful tale of love lost and found.

    The story begins with the middle aged Pandora, newly widowed, trying with great difficulty to come to terms with the loss of her husband, Mike. However, she finds help in the form of Enoch, a sort of angel, who appears to her and sets her off on her spiritual journey. The author very cleverly incorporates a number of views on the subject of spirituality by making not just Pandora, but also other characters, sceptical and almost mocking at times. Pandora herself is such a likeable character, grounded, but so unsure of herself at the same time. Through the book, she reminisces about her life as she tries to work out what Enoch is ‘saying to her’ so we are transported back to the 70’s and the young Pandora tells us the tale of the two great loves of her life, her late husband Mike and her first husband, the rock star Jay.

    Transforming Pandora is full of colourful, lively, interesting characters and Pandora’s mother is probably the most eclectic of all of them. She is a wonderful mixture of flower child/New Age Spiritualist who changes her men like she changes her clothes and gives a richness and vibrancy to the whole book.
    This is beautiful love story with a good mix of sadness, fun, laughter and deep-rooted love with the words flowing effortlessly off the page in the author’s easy writing style.

    Well worth reading. ~ Sarah Houldcroft, Authors Uncovered

  • Cause, The
    Roderick Vincent
    Vincent is especially adept at blending his ambitious seriousness with a fast-paced action-adventure tale that is often vicious and graphic, especially in the Abattoir chapters. He paints extremely vivid settings, whether in the primitive jungles or the high-tech underground headquarters of the Minutemen. He presents a very believable cast of characters, many of whom we see evolve into cunning and merciless warriors.

    Perhaps the best thing about The Cause is that it's clear it's only the first book in a series. Certainly, we'll get to see how the new revolution progresses, but hopefully we'll also see some of the characters return and develop relationships suggested in The Cause. Hopefully, the second volume will come out before any of the circumstances in The Cause move from speculative fiction into fulfilled prophecy. Reading the first chapters alone should chillingly suggest Vincent's dystopia isn't that far-fetched. ~ Dr. Wesley Britton, Bookpleasures :

  • What A Blip
    Alicia Garey
    Alicia Garey's What a Blip: A Breast Cancer Journal of Survival and Finding the Wisdom, is an amazing journey of a courageous women facing cancer, told in a way to educate, inspire, and even find some light humor in her bleak situation. I love the way she connects with her reader, telling first hand how her experience affected her from a physical, mental, and spiritual standpoint. She discusses the little things that aren't so little that cancer survivors have to think about, giving the reader better insight and perspective on how to empathize and connect with those they love who may be facing the same situation.

    This book is a straightforward account of Alicia's experience and her raw and honest words that she shares is a gift to those who are newly diagnosed and currently fighting the battle, or the support systems whose loved ones are having a similar experience. Through her journey of healing, she is able to heal and positively impact others, and this book is a beautiful example of how an individual's challenges can inspire and empower others. ~ Melissa Escaro, Author, In10Tions: A Mindset Reset Guide to Happiness

  • What A Blip
    Alicia Garey
    Brilliant, gutsy and vivid, this book pulls you into every moment of Alicia Garey’s breast cancer experience and makes it your own. It’s mesmerizing reading, but it ain’t pretty. Whether you’ve got breasts or not, you’re going to feel that biopsy, and it hurts. Cancer is vicious. As Garey puts it: “This is treacherous… This is bend on your knees please God don’t do this to me surrender.” Garey’s writing is so raw and in your face that it makes the chemo, the hair loss and everything that follows come brutally alive. Readers should be prepared with tissues, because just hearing how she shared her diagnosis with her friends at her synagogue brought tears to my eyes. “What a Blip!” is based on the journal she wrote before, during and after her surgery, and it’s filled with numerous short entries of all kinds: painful descriptions of needles, nausea and anxious nights; emails she sent to various people, such as the one telling her mother to please not be so damn rude about her wig; positive affirmations she tried, and the despairing thoughts that stubbornly and predictably surfaced anyway. “My stupid little breasts. I hate them.” We feel for those poor wounded breasts, and their owner, too -- and for her kids and her wonderful husband. And we soak up every moment of her dread.

    What a relief when she learns that the chemo has cleared away her tumors! Her fear that they may return, and the guilt for being one of the lucky ones to survive – these we recognize as shadowy guests in the hotel of our own mind. Despite the success of the chemo she needs lumpectomies anyway, and I must tell you that I DIDN’T WANT TO READ ABOUT THE SURGERY because just the pre-surgery procedure was enough to make me want to faint. But I got through it all, and finally enjoyed her story like a rollercoaster that goes so fast the wind distorts your face. But I’m so glad I took the ride, for it left me uplifted, more deeply human, and better emotionally prepared – I can hope – for any calamities that life may put on my plate.

    “One or two people said that I would look back on all of this and it would be a ‘blip’. This is one hell of a blip.” And this is one hell of a wonderful book.

    I’m thankful that due to her courageous guts, the grace of God and advances in medical science she came through a survivor, and was able to give us all this precious message of hope and messy human triumph in a bottle.

    God bless you, Alicia Garey. May you live to be 110. You deserve that. ~ Ram Das Batchelder, Author, Rising in Love: My Wild and Crazy Ride to Here and Now, With Amma, The Hugging Saint

  • What A Blip
    Alicia Garey
    Alicia Garey has written a very touching, intimate book about her courageous battle with breast cancer. I, like she once did, have always considered the "c" word something that happens to other people. Garey's book is a reminder it can happen to anyone, regardless of history and healthy lifestyle.

    From the anxiety-ridden self-talk she experiences during diagnosis to the snowballing awakening to her new reality throughout her prognosis and treatment, we realize through Garey's eyes all we take for granted when we are healthy. We realize how the desperation of uncontrollable crisis demands controlled positive thoughts and compassion toward self when we "lose it". We realize just how eternal a challenge can feel and seem until suddenly, things change again.

    Until you go through this experience yourself or with someone very close to you, the reality of it is simply impossible to imagine and easy to dismiss...a blip. Garey's book eradicates this common ignorance by showing just how life-altering and pivotal a blip! She places the reader right there with her creating an empathic connection that is bound to carry forward the next time one hears of someone diagnosed. Then perhaps, we will be better prepared to offer our support. ~ Dielle Ciesco, Author, Your True Voice: Tools to Embrace a Fully Expressed Life

  • Naming the Goddess
    Trevor Greenfield
    Thanks to Moon Books for sending this book to Goddess Association in Australia for review. ‘Naming the Goddess’ is an eclectic collection of articles by over 70 contributors. It contains a wealth of information and viewpoints and is perfect for dipping into from time to time at random to see what unexpected gem you might discover – a Goddess famous or obscure, Irish or Mesoamerican, Egyptian or Mesopotamian, Norse or Hindu.

    Moon Books is a UK publishing house that specialises in paganism and shamanism. The flavour of this collection is accordingly more neo-pagan than Goddessian but there’s plenty of diversity within it. There are two parts to the work, the first being what the editor Trevor Greenfield describes as ‘a series of critical essays reflecting upon contemporary issues’ and the second (and much much longer) part being a ‘gazetteer’ of Goddesses – 72 short appreciations of individual Goddesses from around the world, arranged in alphabetical order.

    In the first part, the stand-out for me was Kathy Jones’s article on the Lady of Avalon. Jones recounts succinctly and inspiringly the reclaiming of the Goddess of Avalon. She acknowledges the influence of Marion Zimmer Bradley’s marvellous The Mists of Avalon and then narrates the ‘magical journey of transformation’ that has seen the (re-)establishment of a Goddess community in Glastonbury. She evokes beautifully the worship of the Goddess in ancient times, when ‘our communities celebrated the seasonal cycles of Goddess’ and ‘recognised Her in the shapes of the land, as Her paps (breasts) and womb hills, as Her body fleshed out in rounded hills, Her face carved out by wind and weather in rocks and mountains’. She also posits a key consideration for the reclaiming of Goddess in these times: there is ‘no-one to tell us’ how to be a priestess of the Goddess, because the ‘threads of Her memory in this land were cut'; accordingly, ‘we have to begin again to learn about Goddess in the same way as our ancestors, from experiencing Her many faces as they are revealed to us in the cycles of the seasons of Her nature’.

    There are other goodies in this first part of the book, too. Selena Fox’s Introduction usefully distinguishes six different pathways of Goddess spirituality – the paths of universality, particularity, dyadicy, triplicity, multiplicity and inclusivity. The nomenclature is a bit clunky (dyadicy?) but I found it a handy guide for all that. Morgan Daimler addresses the issue of ancient Goddesses in a modern world, arguing that ‘human culture is a fluid thing that changes and the Goddesses change along with us, keeping the core of who they are as they move with us into the future we are shaping’. She points to offerings and visualisations as specific areas in which change has been experienced.

    Hearth Moon Rising’s essay is a passionate defence of the existence and significance of the female body against what she terms ‘the new patriarchy’ which seeks to ‘reject feminine creative power – in word and concept – in favour of gender neutral constructs which divorce our creator from her capacity to give birth’. Susan Harper’s exposition of monism was a welcome addition to Selena Fox’s categories. I also appreciated her acknowledgement that ‘calling upon Goddesses from cultures and heritages not my own … brings up complex issues about cultural appropriation and privilege’. She puts forward that resonance with such Goddesses must lead to an identification with the people of the cultures which gave birth to these Goddesses, to a recognition that an injustice done to them is an injustice done to the worshipper, and to the undertaking of work for shared liberation and against injustice.

    In the second part, I particularly appreciated Rufus Brock Maychild’s reclaiming of Pandora as the Earth Mother, ‘the all-giving’, and his castigation of Hesiod for transforming her into a ‘foolish, disobedient girl’ and her gifts into ‘things of fear and contempt’. It was also lovely, for me, to read of the COLLECTIVE revivals of so many Goddesses: the building of temples, the formation of organisations and traditions, the holding of rituals. Oh, and some individual revelations too: Barbara Meiklejohn-Free recounts how the Brythonic Goddess Arnemetia appeared to her while she was walking in the woods; Rhianna Nodens how the tutelary Goddess of the Islands of Britain came to her under the name of Prydeinia during meditation; Caroline Wise how she sensed the spirit of a genius loci at a group of springs, close to which was later found a Roman temple treasure, consisting of a small silver statue of a Goddess and votive plaques naming her as Senuna.

    A possibly unintended delight of the book is coming to know a bit about the 70+ authors, their other publications and the traditions within they work. We learn of solitary practitioners; pagan group leaders; the Sisterhood of Avalon; the Covenant of Hekate; the Avalonian Thealogical Seminary; the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids; the Mesa Moon School of the Divine Feminine; and many many more groups and organisations which had me googling madly to find out more. Most contributors are from the UK or the USA – though GAIA’s own Frances Billinghurst has an article (Ereshkigal). And while most contributors are women, there are quite a few men amongst them, especially in Part I.

    One of the blurbs on the back cover of the book claims that within its pages ‘Goddess Spirituality comes of age’. I must say I think this is an overstatement. To be a mature representation of the Goddess revival, I would expect a more thorough history of its origins, and a more extended analysis of key issues such as gendered deity, immanence, darkness and patriarchy. I would also expect greater overall consistency of quality: with some of the articles in Part II, I wasn’t sure I was getting anything more than I would have got from wikipedia. And there were various articles which could and should have given at least some acknowledgment of, for example, the possibility of patriarchal iconotrophy of Goddess story (particularly the uncritical use of terms like ‘vengeful’ for a Goddess in defender/protector mode), or the cultural appropriation issues touched on by Susan Harper in Part I. There is only one entry in the book that draws on Australian mythology: Yingarna, the Rainbow Serpent. I was uneasy about Rebecca Taylor’s instructions for ritual invocation of Yingarna, without any discussion of whether it is OK for people from other cultures/heritages to do this. The same applies to the entries for Lakshmi, Pomba Gira and the Inuit Sea Goddess Sedna.

    I also had a bit of an issue with repetition: the story of the Descent of Inanna is told three times: first in the Ereshkigal article, then in the Inanna article and then in the one on Ishtar. Each version gives slightly different details, unco-ordinated and uncross-referenced, which left me a bit confused and annoyed at having to piece the jigsaw puzzle together myself. Something similar occurs with the Queen of the Faeries, who is the subject of three different articles (Faery Queen, Nicnevin, Queen of Elphame). Much as I love the fae, this seemed excessive. This is not the fault of the contributors; to me, it is a problem of the editing, or perhaps the format itself.

    And I would not be me if I failed to mention that the book has, to my mind, more than the usual amount of grammatical, typographical, spelling and syntax errors – even the greengrocer’s apostrophe – AARRGGHH! And I do NOT think that ‘Tlazoteotl’ is an acceptable alternative spelling of the name of the Mexican Goddess Tlazolteotl.

    Is ‘Naming the Goddess’ worth reading, is it worth buying? Yes, certainly; the introductory essays are interesting, the gazetteer packed full of information. On the whole, the contributors successfully tread the delicate line between scholarliness and popular writing, quite an achievement. And I haven’t even mentioned the haunting twist in the Epilogue. Go for it!

  • In10tions
    Melissa Escaro
    Meditation can seem daunting, and many of us put off starting, or getting beyond a certain point because the compulsive thinking of the unobserved mind makes us feel that we are unable to sit in stillness and silence. In10tions gives you a very simple and structured introduction to meditation, and the practicing of increased awareness in your daily life, using simple and short meditational spaces at the beginning and end of each day, easing you into deeper connection with your inner source of conscious awareness.

    Meditation is not something separate from your daily life. However when you begin to meditate, just like learning to play a musical instrument, paint, write or dance, you need to put aside dedicated times in which to practice. Whether you are struggling to get started or feeling stuck after months or years of practice, In10tions will be of invaluable help.

    A primary purpose of meditation is to free us from the dominance of the habitual thinking mind with its negative thought forms that cause fear, depression, and anxiety. These thought forms exist within us as individuals, and are a part of the human collective that have existed for thousands of years. As we awaken we become more sensitive to these old negative patterns, which can make us feel as if we are regressing, rather than celebrate the fact that we are noticing more through our awakening conscious presence. Practicing the daily exercises in the book will help you to break these patterns by increasing your body awareness, and through the practice of conscious breathing. Both are powerful doorways into the present moment, where all creativity and new life takes place.

    Although the book presents a structured daily practice, this is not fixed. There is freedom, and space between the words, allowing you to adapt the practice to your own needs and specific life circumstances. I found myself revisiting some of the earlier practices as I worked through the book, which occurred quite naturally and without any effort on my part.

    From a spiritual perspective we are multi-dimensional beings that live in a multi-dimensional universe where everything is an interconnected whole. At your core you are consciousness, and consciousness liberated from negative thoughts brings new - which means creative - life into the world.

    When we are caught up in the mind we miss the miracle of life that is present within us, and around us here, now. Unaware of our creative potential we miss the opportunities this miracle continually presents to us. In10tions is a way of helping you to realize your connection to that miracle, and to free up the creativity that is inseparable from who you truly are. In10tions will help you set your intention to be at-one with this wholeness. ~ Stephen Pope, Author of Patterns of Creation: Logos and the Tree of Life in the Gospel of John

  • Life Without Elgar
    Ann Merivale
    Ann Merivale’s intimate account of her love for Edgar Elgar’s work in her current life, and the passionate involvement with both man and music in a previous life, is deeply personal, insightful and touching. In spite of the factual research contained in this book and a few academic musings, Ann’s journey of musical self-discovery is clearly guided by the heart. She trusts and follows her feelings, which is the only way to access what is usually hidden from the conscious mind: true self-knowledge, wisdom and healing. Ann’s book elucidates what holistic therapists encounter with clients every day: healing is a process inseparable from the soul’s journey through various embodiments. Rather than being an outlandish theory, reincarnation actually constitutes the practical framework of healing. It lends universal meaning, purpose and value to human life as we know it while in a body.

    ~ Ayuseva, Amazon

  • Life Without Elgar
    Ann Merivale
    The central part of this book considers the relationship between Sir Edward Elgar and his friend Helen Weaver, to whom he was engaged in the 1870s. The investigation takes the form of a series of imaginary letters between Edward and Helen. Although the letters are fictional, the facts implied by them have been well researched and will increase the readers’ knowledge and understanding of England’s greatest composer.

    Merivale believes that Helen was the unnamed friend in the 13th of the Enigma Variations, and also the soul enshrined in the Violin Concerto. Other names have been mentioned in this context as Elgar was concerned to spare his wife’s feelings, but this view is supported by the evidence of Elgar’s friend Ivor Atkins who believed that Helen was the real dedicatee.

    The book also tells us of Merivale’s own response to the composer and her sympathetic feelings towards Helen Weaver.

  • Delayed Departure
    Ann Merivale
    I’ve just finished reading Delayed Departure which was fascinating. I am currently doing the practitioner course with Simon but we haven't got to that part of the training yet. I did a journey recently and was shown I had helped souls depart in a previous life and feel I may be called to do this work which is what led me to read your book.

    I wanted to introduce myself and let me know of my interest in your work. Originally I was drawn to shamanism as I was very interested in soul retrieval and ancestral healing and I can see a connection with the psychopump work which until I read your book I felt a little frightened.

    With blessings,

  • Last Observer, The
    G. Michael Vasey
    Maybe I shouldn't have read the reviews on Amazon and Goodreads after reading the Last Observer. I had to go back and read it again to make sure I had read the same book.

    After a second reading, I still can’t bring myself to agree with either the five star reviews or the one and two star reviews. And that is the beauty of the written word – just as the author provides the platform, the reader adjusts their own interpretation from their own perspective.

    The Last Observer is actually a highly entertaining read, a classic good versus evil yarn, which I enjoyed reading (twice) and would maybe merit development into a full novel in order to explore and expand some of the themes, such as the background to the characters, the origins of Zeltan etc, which in turn, would add more plausibility to some aspects of the story.

    For readers expecting the same fluent first person story telling style found in My Haunted Life then beware, the third person narration used by G. Michael Vasey in The Last Observer is very different in style and eschews some of the writing conventions often found in the thriller genre.

    It’s not a book that asks questions, it’s not another ‘The Devil Rides Out’; it’s simply a short, fun novella that can be consumed in a few hours while unwinding on the sofa on a Sunday afternoon. And for those of us who like their novels served with a dollop of kitsch, then what the author may have inadvertently done here, is create a future cult classic. ~ Paul simpson,

  • Squaring Circles
    Carolyn Mathews
    A funeral, a mysterious stranger, a docile donkey and a set of colourful characters set against the backdrop of Glastonbury - a well known New Age community in Somerset, UK - make a fantastic yarn which Carolyn Mathews weaves with an expert hand. Not having read the first book in this series, I was worried that I would not understand what was going on - but not only did I enjoy this unpretentious, lighthearted spiritual novel and read it in a couple of days, but I managed to suspend disbelief and let myself be carried by the magical and fun story without a moment of hesitation.

    Pandora, the protagonist and namesake of the first human woman created by the gods (specifically by Hephaestus and Athena on the instructions of Zeus!) is dramatic and befits her name. Our literary Pandora is a complex character, which the readers needs to warm up to, but once they do - they can follow the twists and turns in her life with much interest. As Hesiod related it, each god helped create the first Pandora by giving her unique gifts. Zeus ordered Hephaestus to mold her out of earth as part of the punishment of humanity for Prometheus' theft of the secret of fire, and all the gods joined in offering her "seductive gifts". The literary Pandora is indeed seductive, but also sensitive and strong-headed.

    A great read for the holiday period - a perfect book to enjoy with a mug of mulled wine. ~ Daniela Norris, Goodreads

  • Squaring Circles
    Carolyn Mathews
    This novel is like a delectable piece of pastry. There are so many layers in the themes, characters and the plot that it becomes compelling as you read and expose more layers.

    The book begins with a funeral. Pandora, the main character, has just lost her mother unexpectedly. A sombre start; but as the coffin is being lowered, one of the men lets the strap slip and the coffin falls sideways into hole. Comedy! Surely not....

    This is where you begin to expect the unusual and realize that this is not a predictable story. Pandora is a healer. She has been chosen and trained to heal and comfort people, and uses musical instruments to help her in her work.

    Known as “Andy”, she has many roles to play. She is partner to Jay, to whom she was previously married and then divorced. When Jay's second wife died and he and Pandora fell in love again and now live together with his five children and his mother in a large house.

    Her peace has been disturbed by an attractive and seductive woman that Jay is working with at the moment. She has also discovered that someone has tampered with her mother's grave.

    A man claiming to be her brother has appeared on the scene, causing a great shock and revelations of her mother's life that she had never known. As if this isn't enough, she has been writing a column for a newspaper and has been invited to go on a television panel.

    The flow of the story is smooth, and the spiritual occurrences wonderfully interlinked. A friend of one of her “saplings” (her name for Jay's children) can speak to animals and informs her that the rabbits would like a larger run. The donkey has sighted the person who dug up her mother's grave and names him. And the conclusion involves an elixir being placed on the tongue of members of the Isis Circle at a full moon ceremony

    The combination of romance, spirituality, drama and humour has been wonderfully written by Carolyn Mathews. ~ Grasshopper2 (Trish),

  • Good Pussy Bad Pussy
    A. Aimee
    Adventurous, steamy, funny and sad at the same time / 5 Stars

    I didn’t expect it, but this book was a really great read. When the author sent me a review copy of the book she told me: enjoy the read/ride. I really did have such a ride. I thought the book was just steamy erotica, but it is so much deeper. There are many twists and turns.

    Rachel is every woman on this planet. Her thoughts, desires, her sense of loss, and her adventurous spirit are well known to every woman. She is lost in her world with a man she doesn’t want, feeling there is no love for her. But she wakes up and finds a way to her destiny, even though the road will be rough sometimes. As the Ancient Romans said: Per aspera ad astra which means “Through hardships to the stars”. I like Rachel so much, especially the way she deals with things, though sometimes I wanted to shake her to wake her up.

    I liked the male characters Albert and Stefan. Stefan is weak as opposed to Albert, who is really strong. Oh and that H. is such a sick person.

    This is a book which will shake you, drive you, and give you a roller coaster ride. It’s adventurous, steamy, funny and sad at the same time.
