Book Description

Roadmap to a Sustainable Future

Step into the world of New Avalon, a self-sustaining eco-community in the mountains of Northern California, and a wellspring of viable solutions to the rising crises in economics, government and the culture.
This spiritually grounded initiative is further sparked by the reunion of founding member Leah Erickson, host of New Avalon’s own television program, Light on the Crisis, and Chris Kramer, the earthly head of the ‘Order of the Ruby’, the highest magicians on the planet. After a 10-year hiatus whilst completing his mission for the ‘Ruby Order’, Chris is now in residence at New Avalon, in full support of Leah and the community. Their reunion — one of cosmic love, humor and everyday magic — catapults Leah into the final preparatory, always challenging, steps to mission and spirit-filled consciousness soul (attainment of higher self).
The first book in a series, The Priestess and Magus, The Gift, speaks to the power of grassroots activism, the importance of truth-speaking no matter how controversial, and the longing coming from the depths of our souls to gift from the heart, guiding conscious creativity into manifestation. With laughter and tears of recognition, Leah and Chris, along with the entire New Avalon community, provide us with mirrors of self, a good many options to enliven relationship, and, most importantly, the path of the ego’s ascent from cultural bondage to liberation in service.
A long-awaited follow-up to Ayani’s Lineage of the Codes of Light and The Brotherhood of the Magi, this book, and those forthcoming in the series, gift us a love story on many levels - from the cosmic love of Chris and Leah to the outreaching hands of a heart-centered, consensus community growing into selfless service — to human evolution and Mother Earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars Expanding yet deep. July 12, 2012
By Felicia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read all of Jessie`s Books and been looking forward to this one. The reason: the deep but simple messages contained in the stories have a way of entering the reader's life and opening new doors... while being entertained.
I frequently feel the heroes in most New Age fiction work are so perfect they can only preach from the pages. Jessie`s heroes have magical traits to be sure, but they are not yet done with growing, they stumble, they cry, they are still on the path. I find this to be important because they set an example of how the spiritual path really looks like. Seldom are people just illuminated in a weekend workshop and go to be great masters for ever. If you are interested in learning about the soul work after "spiritual basics" you`ll love her books.
This one is specially focused on a community, living practical solutions for todas stumbling ways of society, solutions based in spiritual values, showing how personal soul work and also everyday normal work can be combined. It brings down heaven to earth.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Priestess and the Magus, Book One: The Gift September 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a wonderful and inspiring spiritual adventure about creating conscious community. The day to day experiences in the story model the creation of a new paradigm for humanity based on inner development which is as exciting as the outer results which the protagonists celebrate.

More About the Author

Over the twenty years prior to 2012, when I took up writing as the principal task in life, I devoted most of my time to the facilitation of personal growth through an inspired but grounded path to self-awareness called Awakening and Healing the Rainbow Body. The books with those titles and my shamanic journey CDs are the tools I developed to help people understand the beauty and wisdom of our multi-dimensional self. The Rainbow Body work helps us heal the past, a necessary task if one is intending to move forward into self or soul awareness. And, they are easy to use individually or in circle.

My fiction books are another way to present the spiritual work, through the lives of my characters and the extraordinary experiences they have with higher and inner worlds. Our heroine, Leah, is my vehicle to express the spiritual truths from my soul. I wholeheartedly love my characters as they continually surprise me with their imaginative solutions to life's dilemmas and the revelations of truth that hit me and my readers, viscerally, between the eyes. Leah shows women their vulnerability and their core strength. She stumbles, she falls and she succeeds -- and changes the world and herself in the process.

In response to my most frequently asked questions: I am not Leah. My characters are very real to me -- as if living out their lives in a parallel reality -- and I can't wait to get back to them when writing time comes around every November. And, I do not channel. My soul is directly in touch with these characters. There is no need to open myself to something potentially inauthentic and opportunistic. Rather, one might describe this gift as clairvoyance/clairaudience as the fiction writing experience is very much like watching and listening to a movie in my mind's eye. However, I do add personally gained structure to the spiritual mysteries, for the sake of clarity and education.

My background has always been strong in the study of the mystery school teachings, but also in alternative medicine, spiritual healing, and all things shamanic. I earned a PhD from the University of Minnesota Medical School. This training fostered my inner scientist's need to continually question, explore and research -- and a fair bit of allopathic medical knowledge, which I find especially useful in life and in writing.

To round things out, I have a great love for biodynamic gardening, the bees, and my small-town community's efforts at local sustainability ... oh, and the decidedly gorgeous snow-capped mountain under my feet and dominating the landscape out the front door - Mount Shasta.
