The Power of Chants
Date: 2004-04-12   By: Christopher Penczak

The Goddess and the Priestess: The Archetype of the Powerful Woman Realized
Date: 2014-12-22   By: Sonja Sadovsky
Since childhood, and for various reasons, The Priestess and the Pen author Sonja Sadovsky has been enamored with the image of successful women who overcame adversity to create something new, both in fiction and in reality. And, more often than not, magic played a part in these images of Goddesses and Priestesses. Here she discusses her motivation for writing her new book and the desire to see today's dreams become tomorrow's reality.
