Join the book club discussion for Nimue: Freeing Merlin

Use these discussion questions to guide your next meeting.


Within each of us exists a reservoir of untapped potential; some might call it the soul, others might say it is a doorway to magic. To discover what is true about ourselves, we often have to take a quest and undergo initiations that test us to the core. Today, we need tales of empowered women, and Nimue:

Freeing Merlin is the story of a heroines quest to find the Grail. The tale stays true to Nimue’s adventures in Arthurian legend but is updated for todays readers.

Nina is a seventeen-year-old girl who, at the beginning of the book, is living with her mother in modern day Manhattan. They decide to spend the summer in London, and believing she is a normal person just like any other, Nina has no idea what awaits her in Britain. In this visionary novel, a young modern-day woman named Nina realizes that she was a Mage (or Enchantress) in a previous life. She was, in myth, the one responsible for sealing Merlin up in a tree until the hour of his return. Now, she is the only one who can find him. Traveling back in time to 5th Century Ynys Witrin, she discovers more than she ever imagined possible.

Beloved Kimberly,

Today is the 8th day of the 8th month. The Lion’s Gate is open!

Eight represents our infinite soul, on our infinite journey. The eternal part of us is omniscent and knows our history since before time. This part of us in omnipresent and can bi-locate in any place, time, or state of Being. Our Master Self is omnipotent, radiant in the splendor of divine love, capable of all goodness.

As the Lion’s Gate opens, we have greater access to our wholeness of Being.

What do Goddesses have to do with that? Everything.

Goddesses spin the moon make flowers grow and spring gush forth. They are allied with both beasts and men. They have magikal powers that created whole people and brought forth light.

Do you have Goddess energy? YES!

Ayn Cates Sullivan, Ph.D. is my guest Tuesday, August 13.
