Michelle Skye,
Goddess Alive: Inviting Celtic & Norse Goddesses into Your Life
(Llewellyn, 2007)

Come and invite the energies of these goddesses into your life, and see what lessons they have to teach and share! Step into the legends of old and envelop yourself in a unique experience. Feel the cold winter air against your skin in one meditation; feel the ancient sun warm your face in another. I was so sorry to see this book come to an end.

Michelle Skye has authored a lovely compilation of ancient myths centering around major Celtic and Norse goddesses. Through Skye's painstaking research, you will learn the story of each goddess, but this is much, much more than a history book. You will explore each goddess through wonderful guided meditations, interesting activities, rituals and invocations. You will also explore each goddess' relationship to a holiday or moon phase, and discover what meaning she holds for you.

At the beginning of the book is a helpful section called "Starting on Your Journey," which gives a solid foundation in grounding and centering, explains pathworking and prepares you for the meditations. Skye has an easy, informal diction that brings alive each goddess and makes for a very uncomplicated, comfortable and encouraging read. The wonderful illustrations by Kris Waldherr beautifully bring to life a face for each goddess.

I believe you will love the opportunity to learn made available through this book. I especially loved the meditations on Aine, Hella and Rhiannon. Heck, I especially just loved this whole book.
