Awakening Your Goddess-
A Practical Guide to Discovering a Woman's Power, a Woman's Glory
Goddess archetypes have existed for thousands of years as sources of feminine power. Awakening Your Goddess helps today's women draw inspiration from goddesses of many cultures as a means to self-fulfillment. The author points out how every woman's life is influenced by various goddess archetypes, then advises on how to create a balance among them to achieve personal wholeness. There are three archetypes. First is the Maiden, as embodied in such goddesses as Artemis, Persephone, and Athena, among others. Maiden behavior patterns appear in mother-daughter, father-daughter, and sister-sister relationships. Second is the Mother, with examples including Isis and Hera. Mother behavior patterns include the drive to bear children and to become a home-maker and a significant other. Third is Wise Woman, personified by Kali, Cailleach, Hecate, and others. The Wise Woman is goddess as achiever. She is competent and equal to men. She inspires the independent woman who does not have to submerge her own personality in favor of others. An important chapter titled "Intergration and Maintenance" tells women how to use and balance the qualities of different goddess archetypes, and how each archetype tends to dominate different times in the life of most women. Integrating them in her own being is a woman's way to create herself as a fulfilled person. Each chapter contains meditation exercises, self-help questions, and other features to help each reader empower her own being. Full-color illustrations throughout.

The Inner Journey Home
(Sarah York) Hardcover
Pilgrimage is not just about leaving ordinary life," writes author Sarah York in Pilgrim Heart: The Inner Journey Home. "It is much more, a process that involves stages of moving from ordinary space in sacred space and then back into ordinary space, from structure to non-structure then back to structure." Herein lies the strength of York's book, which doesn't simply exalt the transformative highlights of a pilgrim journey. Instead, it emphasizes the importance of conscious leave-taking and integration upon return--showing how they equal, if not exceed, the significance of the insights gleaned while on the journey.
In the opening chapters, York shows readers how to recognize the stirrings for a pilgrimage, which, ironically, are often spurred by a search for a true home. She then gives examples of different kinds of pilgrimages, including stories of her own, to demonstrate the common threads. Whatever the destination, York advises pilgrims to seek the wilderness, "whether we enter the wilderness of our hearts and minds, a wilderness in the world's dark mysteries, or the majestic wilderness of nature." It is after all, "the place where we meet ourselves," according to York. "The irony is that we meet our familiar self in the unfamiliar."
Her strongest suit is guiding readers through the re-entry--a tough and sometimes shocking phase of pilgrimage. Without scooping her closure, suffice it to say that she teaches the art of spiritual self-reliance; finding the home within the self instead of lamenting the physical home one returns to. Readers may find York's whimsical writing style too tangential for their liking. This is not a pat, how-to book. Expect a woman's thought-provoking musings on a theme, within a loosely bound narrative. --Gail Hudson

Feeling at Home-
Defining Who You Are and How You Want to Live
(Alexandra Stoddard) Hardcover
Stoddard (Open Your Eyes) is a well-known interior designer, but her books mine a territory that's closer to self-help than color schemes. Her latest volume urges readers to look at themselves and their homes with a new consciousness. Through a text liberally laced with both personal anecdote and queries (from "How well are you getting along with your spouse?" to "How much time do you spend eating?"), Stoddard guides readers through a process of self-exploration, then encourages them to reshape not only their houses but the way they spend time there. What she calls emotional comforts, such as order and color, are enhanced along the way, while unrewarding chores, spaces or possessions are pared down. The result, she convincingly affirms, is a more delightful, less demanding life. Stoddard has a genuine gift for thinking creatively about interior spaces; too often, though, she returns to themes well covered in past booksAher own and others'Aor collapses into vague silliness ("If in the past you found no satisfaction in emptying the garbage, transcend the garbage pail, rise above it"). However, the book bubbles with an infectious appreciation of even the smallest domestic pleasure and an inspiring awareness of the spiritual and emotional life of a house. (Oct.)
