Bali, Guest Post, and Book Shares…

April 6, 2012

I haven’t posted in awhile as I’ve been on retreat and then vacation here (yes, those are my munchkins)…

…and here

…and here

…but there are a few things I wanted to share this week, and then next week I’ll do a post on Nature Energetics, incorporate more pics of my favorite places, and talk about the energy they transmit and doorways they open (and I look forward to hearing from some of you about your favorite places as well.)

First off, I am VERY excited to announce that I will be joining Cyndi Dale, Chantal Monte, and Anthony J.W. Benson in offering an amazing retreat in Bali this Fall!! As you may remember, I interviewed Chantal here about Bali this past January, in a very popular post that many of you commented on or emailed me about. The response to this post is partly what helped birth this trip. So if Bali is calling to you, check it out – this will be an amazing inner and outer journey.

I am also very happy to share that I am guest posting – or actually, was interviewed – by friend and fellow blogger Cate over at Heart on my Sleeve. Cate and I have been corresponding for awhile now through our blogs, as she has shared a lot about her own spiritual journey through midlife. Among other things, she prompted me to share how I decided to name this Blog ‘Mommy Mystic’ – a story I have often thought of sharing here, as I originally resisted that name:-) So come on over to visit Cate and I there

I have also recently reviewed a couple of books on Amazon that some of you may be interested in. The first is Elaine Pagels’ latest, Revelations: Visions, Prophecy and Politics in the Book of Revelations. Many of you may be familiar with Pagels popular books on the Gnostic Gospels. As with those books, my favorite part of this book is her sharing of excerpts from other Revelations (accounts of personal spiritual experiences and visions from early desert mystics) that were found at Nag Hammadi, famously buried in large clay pots there, and discovered in 1945.

The second book is The Way, by Kristin Wolf, interestingly enough also of a Christian bent (it is Easter week after all…). This is a radical re-imagining of the birth of Christianity from a nature-based, feminine spirituality tradition. I don’t want to give away too much more, as I think it’s best read without any knowledge of the plot (although most of the reviews, including my own, do give some away, and I don’t think this ruins it, if you want to know a little more.) Although I didn’t love everything about this book, I loved a lot, and appreciated its creative perspective.

I’ll be back next week. Whatever your religion (or lack thereof!) I hope you have a wonderful Easter – for me, this holiday, and its historical pagan roots, represents rebirth, so may you experience that for yourself the next few days:-) I am going to close comments here to encourage you to visit the Bali site, and to visit Cate and I over at her blog, where I will be commenting with her…
