I’ve spent some in reflection. I’ve wandered and questioned, not really sure where my place was. You may have noticed that I haven’t been around. I misplaced my drive to share the stories.
Then I got an email from Dana O’Driscoll.
I had forgotten that I had contacted her with my interest to review her book Sacred Actions. I’m glad I got that email. Beyond getting the opportunity to read this fantastic book, it reignited my desire to share the stories.
Sacred Actions isn’t your typical spirituality book.
Sure, it has a focus on the Wheel of the Year and references the traditional Greek elements of magic, but it’s incredibly open. While the author gives suggestions on what to perform for rituals on any of the special days, it is truly up to the reader to go with what feels right.
At no point does it feel like the author’s spirituality is shoved down your throat. Dana O’Driscoll is definitely not a gate keeper.
My favorite part is that, as you are celebrating the year, Sacred Actions makes you think. Every special day has a task that goes along with it, each celebration brings the reader closer to the Earth Mother. If you aren’t in a place where you can take drastic steps, the book points you in the right direction for smaller steps.
Any action is better than nothing.
I have read up to the point of the Summer Equinox and I look forward to celebrating throughout the year and deepen my connection to the Earth.
Thank you to Dana O’Driscoll for writing this book and allowing me to experience it and my thanks to You for reading this post.
