Here is the "Blessing Way": the indigenous ritual for making a golden invitation for those who follow us; the 8 Gates of Initiation, which open to new vistas in your inner and outer worlds; the 9 Nine Muses of the ancient Greeks, and how they mediate between the mystery of creation and your creativity; and much, much more.

monotone voice

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I like what is said


What did you like best about this story?

everything


How did the narrator detract from the book?

her voice is SO monotone it is really difficut for me to listen to more than 15 minutes at a time, I really want to listen to this because I like what she is talking about but this book should have been read by a proffessional, someone entertaining.


Any additional comments?
