Breaking the Mother Goose Code, by Jeri Studebaker

Reviewed by Nimue Brown

I did not really expect to be convinced by Jerri Studebaker’s book about finding signs of ancient Goddess worship in fairy tales. I’m just not the sort of person who is easily persuaded by much, and the sleight of hand history of Dr Anne Ross, and the chicanery of Robert Graves . . . → Read More: Breaking the Mother Goose Code, by Jeri Studebaker

Trees of the Goddess: A New Way of Working with the Ogham

Reviewed by Nicole Rain Sellers

For millennia, trees have been held sacred among indigenous cultures and great civilisations alike. Tree mythology features in all major world religions. Trees speak deeply to our human collective unconscious, as symbols of otherworld connection, longevity, nourishment, and the mysteries of transformation.

To the ancient Celts, certain trees held special . . . → Read More: Trees of the Goddess: A New Way of Working with the Ogham

Deep Magic Begins Here, by Julian Vayne

Tales and Techniques of Practical Occultism

Reviewed by Psyche

Julian Vayne has written and contributed to eight books, and writes regularly for the always excellent Blog of Baphomet.

All Acts of Love and Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca, by Yvonne Aburrow

Reviewed by Sable Aradia

This book wasn’t what I was expecting. Many reviewers out there are focusing on a handful of All Acts of Love & Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca’s qualities, either because they are personally invested in the LGBTQ aspect (as am I) or because gender and sexuality in the Craft are hot topics in . . . → Read More: All Acts of Love and Pleasure: Inclusive Wicca, by Yvonne Aburrow

Path to the Ancestors, by Swain Wodening

Reviewed by Joseph Bloch

I recently had the pleasure of ordering Swain Wodening’s book Path to the Ancestors: Exploring Ancestor Worship within Modern Germanic Heathenry from Lulu.com. At 62 pages (not counting the glossary and bibliography) it’s a quick read, but that should not be mistaken for being light on information. Rather, it is succinct . . . → Read More: Path to the Ancestors, by Swain Wodening

Voices of the Sacred Feminine, By Karen Tate

Reviewed by Molly

Karen Tate is masterful at weaving together a diverse tapestry of voices on her weekly radio show, Voices of the Sacred Feminine. I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect from her new anthology by the same name, but Voices of the Sacred Feminine, the book, is a gorgeous tapestry as well. I . . . → Read More: Voices of the Sacred Feminine, By Karen Tate

Environmental Problems of the Greeks and Romans, by J. Donald Hughes

Ecology in the Ancient Mediterranean

Reviewed by Danielle M. La Londe

Given that the environmental history of the Mediterranean basin has received much scholarly attention in the twenty years since the publication of J. Donald Hughes’ Pan’s Travail: Environmental Problems of the Ancient Greeks and Romans, a second edition of this important work is certainly . . . → Read More: Environmental Problems of the Greeks and Romans, by J.

The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power, by Sable Aradia

Reviewed by Nornoriel Lokason

This is one of the very best Pagan books I have ever read. It is the sort of thing I wish I could send back in time to myself when I started off in Paganism back in 1995 (identifying then as Wiccan).

The thing that I liked the most about the . . . → Read More: The Witch’s Eight Paths of Power, by Sable Aradia

White Light Meditation, by D. F. Bailey

Reviewed by John L. Murphy

I’m curious about meditative practices outside of a religious framework and ritual observance. I also wonder about those that, as D. F. Bailey’s encourages, expect one to empty the mind. So, the author’s invitation to review his short (e-book as a Kindle) study offered me a chance to learn more.

Devotional Polytheism, by Galina Krasskova

Reviewed by Lisa Roling

Often when picking up a book that calls itself an introduction, I expect to find pages that skim the surface and give a smattering of very basic information. In her book, Devotional Polytheism: An Introduction, Galina Krasskova does something different. She provides a deep focus and reflection on the foundations of . . . → Read More: Devotional Polytheism, by Galina Krasskova
