Every single one of us lives our lives within a wheel, a circle, a hoop or a web and every single one of us can benefit from learning how to live our lives to the full within it. The problem though, for many of us, is that because we do not belong to the culture of a medicine wheel or wheel of direction, we find that the wheels do not really fit us or we have trouble connecting with or remembering the attributes. This book provides information, guidance and exercises to help readers find ways to connect with the web of life and weave their path within it.

Shaman, artist and author Elen Sentier writes, "I was first taught the trees of the goddess as a child. The old ones from the village would tell us about the tree, how it lives, what creatures it lives with, its whole environment. They would tell us stories then we would go to the tree and sit with it, listen to what it had to show and tell us. Later, we would ask it for a piece of its wood to make its spirit- home. These were rituals but all so natural and normal they were just a part of life and living for me as I grew up. TREES OF THE GODDESS will help you find your way of doing this."

"Once Upon ASOUL" invites everyone who recognizes that there is more to Heaven and Earth than the readily visible and who yearns to explore the deeper mysteries of life, to share the collective wisdom of science, psychology, and spirituality as it integrates mind, body, and spirit into a satisfying wholeness. "Once Upon ASOUL" speaks to an enduring, eternal core of Consciousness, a sacred essence that each of us carries deep within our being. "Once Upon ASOUL" invites each of us to participate with Consciousness Itself, in order to explore the sacred and deep mysteries beyond ordinary existence. Transpersonal self is guardian of the environment and an instrument for peace...partner and co-creator of our world. Dr. Kovelman's book attempts a synthesis of ancient spiritual traditions, transpersonal/humanistic psychologies, and quantum physics. There are several other excellent books on this topic but Dr. Kovelman's tome expresses its ideas in a more personal way than most others, thus is both Reader-friendly and easily accessible. Dr. Kovelman has stated that her goal is offering process to help the reader attain contact with the numinous and, in doing so, she espouses the multi-level, multi-faced and multi-dimensional nature of the psyche. Her book is a milestone in the effort to orient psychology toward an embrace with the sacred and spiritual aspects of life. Without this, much of what makes people human will be ignored -- to the detriment of both science and humanity.

"Ginny Anderson is a sure-footed guide, not only to natural treasures in the Bay Area, but to the richness of our inner experience. "Circling San Francisco Bay" brings the outer and inner worlds together. It is a gift to the community of life and a valuable tool for deeper connection-a book that not only informs but also enchants." -Lauren deBoer, executive editor, "EarthLight" magazine "Shamanic naturalist Ginny Anderson takes us to seven sacred sites around San Francisco Bay to gain a better understanding of their connections, and ours, in the complex web of life. This is a celebration of our glorious bioregion, and our responsibility to it-and not a moment too soon." -M. Macha NightMare, priestess, ritualist, and author "Anderson shows us how to find these pillars of our paradise, as we come into a deeper and more spiritual bond with Mother Earth. A numinous, sentient work, and a signpost on the path to true joy in life." -Sandy Miranda, KPFA FM host/producer. "In "Circling San Francisco Bay," a graceful meditation on reciprocity with the natural world, Ginny Anderson shows us that we need look no farther than our own Bay Area greenbelt for the balm that soothes the nerves and feeds the soul." -Lorraine Anderson, editor, "Sisters of the Earth: Women's Prose and Poetry About Nature" "Ginny Anderson's tour of Bay Area sacred mountains elicits the fragrance of native herbs, the sparkle of crystal rock outcroppings, and the wisdom of the natives who dwelled in this land we now call home. "Circling" offers its readers exercises to enhance their sensory awareness of specific sites - and pathways to greater methaphorical insights. At every stop, we read the voices of other Circling participants, telling how the wide vistas and meditations on nature's patterns have opened their souls to new understanding." -Debbie Mytels, Associate Director of Acterra: Action for a Sustainable Earth, and a participant in Circling the Bay 1991
