Publisher's Summary

This provocative audiobook invites you to create your own spiritual path based on often-suppressed ancient principles and contemporary practices. Using the elements (earth, water, fire, air, ether) rather than traditional patriarchal hierarchies, this "holy book" is designed to connect each individual to their universal - but often denied - powers. 

Wild woman Danielle Dulsky takes you deep as she explores and embraces sacred feminine archetypes such as the mother goddess, the crone, and the maiden. Join her as she guides you to envision and explore a world that enriches and supports your spirit, body, and mind as well as our global community and the earth.

Critic Reviews

"With conviction, defiance, and a broad, inclusive definition of womanhood, Dulsky...calls on women to reconnect with their wild, instinctual feminine power in this poetic yet practical guide of heathen rituals and observances." (Publishers Weekly)

If you dislike Christianity in a Non Obsessive Way then this is NOT the book for you!

If you dislike Christianity in a non obsessive way then this book is NOT for you!
I listened to the book half way through and stop because I was tried about hearing about all the rebel bible characters!
I’m pagan for f@&$ sakes!
Yeah I grew up in a strict Christian mother but even I’m not obsessing and looking towards rebel bible characters for inspiration in my life.
If Christian references don’t drive you nuts then you might enjoy the book.
Otherwise I just feel like the author is proclaiming straying away from her Christian faith just for the spite of it.

Too poetic to enjoy(?)

The content is good(?) -hard to tell. It’s just too poetic for my taste to actually follow? I don’t mind the narration, and I actually thought it was refreshing to hear a narrator woman without the same soft feminine voice you always hear.
She also calls the reader “my love” literally almost after every other sentence which is annoying/distracting.... almost like having someone younger then you call you “hun”....

Disappointed and left feeling confused

Poetic Archetypal Download

I really enjoyed the connection of the elements and archetypes with the storyteller feel.

I consider myself an Animist and seek spiritual meaning in things around me rather than in specific deities. I appreciated the Divine Feminine emphasis and how it relates to me as an artist and creator.

I’m looking forward to doing the rituals and seeing what unfolds from my journey.

Good and Bad, we got both here!

Overall: 3/5⭐ would recommend

Cons:
The poetic language was excessive and hard to get through at times. I feel like if the flowerly language was cut down on, the book could be half the size it is
She calls the reader "my love" so often and it's really a turn off
As a heathen/pagan, it was tiresome how often she related things to Christianity
I'd say half to 3/4 of the rituals I more or less disregarded entirely. Some however I do want to try and can see the use in

Pros:
The language was beautiful still and the voice really "made it"
A lot of the things she brought up really made me think (not all I agreed with, not all I disagreed with but all I had something to "say" about). Overall, the book always made me pause to really think about something or feel one way or another
There are a few journal prompts I'm inclined to actually do
Where a lot of the book relates back to figures in Christianity, its easy enough to substitute a different figure or archetype in and still have the same "point" (really, still more of a Con tho..)
She hit on so many issues within feminism including death which I feel too often gets overlooked completely
There are rituals included for both solitary and group practices
The appendix is seems useful. I haven't read any other books recommend, but quite a few titles peaked my interest.

Narrator issues

While I'm interested in the book content, it's impossible for me to listen any more due to the narrator. She has an incredibly monotone and nasal way of reading that made the subject matter fall flat. I think what she has to say is worthwhile, but I'll have to go ahead and read the rest this one rather than listen to the audiobook.

Loved this!!

I pre-ordered this, then cancelled it deciding I wanted a physical copy. My job, however, has a large focus in production, and I'm always busy, so I don't have a lot of chances to read. I kept coming back to this and eventually bought it. I'm so glad I did!! Danielle has a soft, warm, and powerful voice when reading this that pulled me in and instilled me with the feeling of power described throughout this book. I am so happy I got to experience this ebook alongside the physical copy!

The call to active healing we most need!

A poetic, dynamic reclamation of the devine and wild feminine as a process of personal and spiritual growth and healing - and a call to redress the devastating consequences patriarchy has had on humanity and nature. Read this and reconnect with you innate power. A gift!
