Share the Joy Thursday: Inner Traditions
I'm super-excited and full of JOY today
because I've seen the pre-release info
on the book to which I contributed articles and photos.
My Seattle friend Cathleen Shattuck
also contributed photos and articles.
In fact, everyone on the trip
furnished articles for the book
that Inner Traditions describes as
"Sharing Transformative and inspiring pieces
written by those who've attended their Egyptian sacred tours,
the authors reveal how writing your spiritual biography
allows you to reconnect to the creativity and divine within,
face your fears, offer gratitude for what you have,
manifest new destinies, and recognize your life
as part of the sacred story of Earth."
We know which of our articles were selected for publication
but right now we're still in the dark on the images.
The book was the dream-child of
Normandi Ellis and Gloria Taylor Brown,

the co-leaders of my spiritual initiation and writing trip
to Egypt in 2009. Normandi is the author of Dreams of Isis, Awakening Osiris: The Egyptian Book of the Dead, Feasts of Light, and Fresh-Fleshed Sisters.
For Invoking the Scribes,
there's a forward by Nicki Scully of Shamanic Journeys
who participated in the writing tour,
though she often leads her company's tours
of Egypt personally.

Invoking the Scribes is due for release
in November 2011
