Format: Paperback
Leila Castle has gathered an exceptional collection of distinguished women's journeys to sacred sites. It shares the feminine aspect of well known and lesser known ancient sites in Europe, South America, and South East Asia. It is a celebration of the creative, intuitive, and sensual experiences of women of all ages and cultures. The journeys vary in duration, but there is a common experience of finding one's "ancient knowing", and remembering cultures that celebrated in harmony and co-creation with Mother Earth.

One of the best books I've ever read, definitely the one I'd take along to that lonely island where you can only have one book. Deeply profound personal journey stories, wonderful to read, great range of experiences told in such a personal way that I sometimes thought my best friend gave me her personal travelogue. The story by Chesca Potter was the one that made me buy the book, and I love hers best, but - aww, what a cornucopia of delight on all pages!

Fantastic, highly recommendable, both for "couch pilgrims" and for those of you who want to visit these wondrous places out there in the real world. A must-have for every woman thinking about pilgrimage!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
but in the end I put it down three-quarters finished. The premise is good, "Women's Pilgrimages To Sacred Places", and a few of the sections made me want to visit the sacred spaces mentioned. Where the book's strength should be but where it falls apart is it isn't written by professional authors, but everyday women on a personal journey. The chapter's gripping excitements range from 'sweet and naive native children appearing with magic mushrooms' to derogating the gifts left by other visitors...what makes one person's vision wrong and someone else's right?

Uneven and in the end, uninteresting. I bought the book for Chesca Potter's entry because I enjoy her art so much. Should have saved my money.
