Seren is the co-author, with her husband Azra, of two previous books that did well at Cygnus: Womb Awakening and Magdalene Mysteries. If you know those titles you will definitely have a strong sense of what this book will be like. It’s a two-footed dive into an out-there, colourful, unselfconscious and brave feminine spirituality. There are full-page colour illustrations of goddesses, dryads, mandalas and trees, plus witches and even Baba Yaga. This intoxicating book will draw you into a rich initiation, with affirmations and poems. There are also stories of her childhood in the north of England, plus of her travels around the world while on her quest. It’s not academic or scholarly but if you like this style of new age magic and books that bring you into relationship with the earth beneath our feet, this is perfect.
