More About the Author
Pamela Eakins came into this life with curiosity and words. She has never stopped writing since she submitted her first book to Random House at the age of ten (which was ever-so-kindly rejected). Her first memorable accolades came with a gold medal she won in the Colorado Bicentennial Competition for her essay on the blue spruce. As she studied for her doctorate at the University of Colorado at Boulder, she continued to write everyday. Writing became her morning practice. Her dissertation, Mothers in Transition, was published soon after she moved to California to birth her babies, to become the director of a childbirth center, and to conduct research at Stanford University and UCLA. On a high cliff over the ocean, her written expression continued to grow as did her spiritual sense of inter-being. She published The American Way of Birth and began work on Tarot of the Spirit and Priestess. Whether scholarly or mystical, whether accepted or rejected, writing, in and of itself, has never been at question for Pamela Eakins. Nor has teaching. Pamela conducts classes online and onsite: tarot, qabalah, women's circles, and writing.
