WARRIOR GODDESS TRAINING:
Become the Woman You Are Meant to Be
by HeatherAsh Amara (Author), don Miguel Ruiz (Foreword)
Paperback: 191 pages
Publisher: Hierophant Publishing (September 1, 2014)
List Price: $18.95

FROM THE PUBLISHER:
The Path to Your Inner Warrior Goddess--

It's no secret that women today are juggling a lot. We now make up more than half the workforce in the United States and are busier than ever with partners, children, family and friends, often putting the needs of others ahead of our own.

And if we feel overwhelmed by it all or fall short of perfection, many of us have learned to be our own worst critic rather than our own best friend.  In Warrior Goddess Training, bestselling author HeatherAsh Amara provides the antidote to the flawed idea that you are not enough.

Direct, honest, and unapologetic, Amara will show you how to release the layers of expectations to finally see yourself for the authentic, perceptive, perfect woman you really are.

If you don't love and honor yourself with every fiber of your being, if you struggle with owning your power and passion, if you could use more joyful play and simple presence in your life, then it is time for an inner revolution.

It is time to claim your Warrior Goddess energy.

Drawing on the wisdom from Buddhism, Toltec wisdom, and ancient Earth-based goddess spirituality, the Warrior Goddess path includes personal stories, rituals, and exercises that will encourage and inspire you to become the true warrior goddess you are meant to be.


Reviews
"Sisters, it's time to shed the 'shoulds,' see ourselves through our own eyes instead of others', and close the gap between wishing for and realizing once and for all who we came here to be. No one shows you how to walk this journey with courage and compassionate self-acceptance better than gifted teacher HeatherAsh Amara" --Stephanie Bennett Vogt, author of Your Spacious Self

"HeatherAsh Amara is your coach and impeccable teacher in the life-ceremony offered in this book." --Ana Forrest, bestselling author of Fierce Medicine and founder of Forrest Yoga

"In Warrior Goddess Training, HeatherAsh Amara shares her experience as a teacher, friend, and guide, helping a new generation of women enter their own journey of inner transformation." --don Miguel Ruiz, author of The Four Agreements

This is the first book written by a practitioner that presents the history, culture, and practical magic of La Santa Muerte to the English-speaking world. As the patron saint of lost causes, the LGBT community, addicts, and anyone who has been marginalized by society, La Santa Muerte has a following of millions—and she’s only becoming more popular. Join author Tomás Prower as he gives step-by-step instructions for spells, magic, and prayers for practical results and long-term goals, including money, love, sex, healing, legal issues, protection, and more. La Santa Muerte also includes detailed information on:


Her Names • Tools • Altars • Offerings • Spells • Prayers • Rituals • History • Myths • Symbols • Meditations • Ethics • Colors • Correspondences

Praise:
"Tomás Prower takes those curious to know more about the spirit of death taking shape as La Santa Muerte on a deep ride through history, tradition, folklore and first hand experience. He deftly balances the aspects of practical folk magick . . . with the deeper mystery tradition of her cult involved in facing the reality of death directly. A wonderful education in a figure that is fairly unknown and misunderstood."—Christopher Penczak, co-founder of the Temple of Witchcraft

TAROT READINGS / SPIRITUAL ADVICE



UNCOMMONSENSE TAROT

Tarot readings by Erica (Raven) Branch-Butler~

"I've been reading Tarot for more than thirty years, and reading professionally at the Edge for a decade. My belief is that Tarot is best used for putting you in touch with your own subconscious, allowing you to make healthy decisions that can change your life for the better. My readings tend to be rather commonsensical. They are often geared toward helping the client deal with the often self-imposed obstacles in their lives in a healthy, self –affirming way, so that they can achieve their goals and fully enjoy the fruits that life has to bring."

Please inquire about Tarot Parties, classes and other events.

Available every day except THURSDAYS-- 2:00-8.00PM.
Sundays 2:00-8:00 PM
