2017 release on magick, spirituality, transformation and weight loss
So, here we are, almost halfway through the year. Can you believe it? I can't. At the same time, I'm so happy that in this year of 2017, my newest book has been released to the public, Earth Mama's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss, through Green Magic Publishers. The book echoes my personal struggles with obesity and shares ways I've found useful to helping me along my journey toward becoming more fit. This journey has been hellish, hence the long time the book has taken to come to fruition. I've had ups and downs and many challenges along the journey, and its not fully realized - I still struggle with my weight.

As a visual artist, healer, shaman and hoodoo, I have brought out this book that melds the different practices in a way I hope will be useful. This is not a memoir, though it has elements of personal memoir in it. It is a guide, for you and for me. Losing weight and keeping it off, is a monumental and at times gut-wrenching endeavor. During the course of the book I lost 50 pounds but at different times in the course of the writing, I have regained weight, though now I am losing again.

The regaining of the weight gave me pause but also ideas. I realized that I am not in this journey alone and nor are you. Together, we can reach out to various gods, goddesses, and ascended spirits, by doing rituals, ceremonies, building altars and sacred objects, and we can be empowered, strengthened and lightened.
