“Legends of the Grail” Book 2

Heroines of Avalon & Other Tales

About Heroines of Avalon:

Any nation or tribe that remembers and re-tells the stories of their people carry a torch of light and insight that continues to pass hope from one generation to the next. Heroines of Avalon includes a round table of inspiring women, including well-known Welsh deities and almost forgotten Arthurian female Grail Knights and landscape Goddesses. In this collection of British myths and legends, each heroine re-tells her story, often freeing herself from centuries of misunderstanding. These feisty women are inspiring role models. The book also includes practices that can help the reader journey to the deity and integrate the heroine’s life affirming qualities. This is the second volume in the “Legends of the Grail” series, which focuses on the Grail as Goddess. The series is designed to help us restore and embrace the qualities of the feminine that have been lost in most cultures and religions.  As the age of violence and domination ends, we look to the feminine archetypes to heal us both individually and collectively, so the planet can be restored. It is a book that invites wholeness and peace.

Current Interest: According to the New York Times, actress Reese Witherspoon recently said that it is important to bring “women to the front of their own stories and make them the heroes of their own stories.” (January 31, 2018, front page.) The three books in the Legends of the Grail series which can be read in any order, are written in such a way that each woman, goddess or heroine becomes the champion of her own tale.

Audience: Anyone wishing to find feminine role models, and those with British or Celtic roots, which includes half of the population of the United States.

Mission of the Book: The purpose of the book (and the entire Legends of the Grail series) is to help women and men remember their wholeness. We are at critical turning point in our planetary history. It is time we remembered to care for one another and this Earth. These are stories date back, in some cases, as far as 8,000 years, yet the wisdom is timeless. We need tales of light and hope so that our children have a future to live into!
