BOOKS & SACRED ART

 

The New Divine Feminine

Experience an evolutionary journey with this profound and practical guide to embracing the archetypal truths of sacred womanhood. Bringing forward feminine mystical teachings, Meghan Don shows you how to work with the seven faces of the Divine Feminine: the light and dark aspects of the Daughter, Mother, and Crone, opening the way to one’s true enlightened nature.

 

Using reflections, prayers, meditations, and ancient chants, The New Divine Feminine helps heal your soul, find liberation, and trust your inner voice and vision. No matter your spiritual beliefs, you can access each divine face and gain empowerment from this guide’s exploration of powerful, sacred women, including Mary Magdalene, Lilith, the Black Madonna, and Teresa of Avila.

“The New Divine Feminine is a very impressive and authentic book where Meghan Don demonstrates she has truly lived her initiation into the divine feminine. This book is not only an exposition, it is an authentic transmission. The ways Meghan describes the various faces of the divine feminine in this beautiful, pioneering, and groundbreaking book are suffused with the grace, clarity, tenderness, and subtlety of the divine feminine itself. It provides a pathway to truly live into an evolutionary leap of consciousness."

Andrew Harvey, Mystic Teacher, Author and Spiritual Revolutionary

"I love The New Divine Feminine, this book has sincerely changed my life! As a student of many disciplines, I appreciate the simplicity in which Meghan shares these divine truths of the many faces of the feminine.   Each chapter is brilliantly organized in short, digestible sections packed with rich story and myth and followed by specific prayers, chants and reflection to support the teachings of the chapter. I have already shared several copies with all the beloved women in my life and they love it too! Enjoy!"


- Nikki Alstedter, CA

“This may well be the best book written on the Divine Feminine. It is not only a book ‘about’ spiritual evolution, it is immediate, inwardly felt. These alive words awaken truths already present but covered over for centuries . . . This is a book of waking up, of becoming our nature. A book every man needs to read!”


—Robert Sardello, Ph.D, author of Silence: The Mystery of Wholeness and Heartfulness

Meditations with Teresa of Avila: A Journey into the Sacred

Meditations with Teresa of Avila: A Journey into the Sacred (previously published as Falling Into the Arms of God), invites you to explore the depths of your inner being by following the pathway of the beloved mystic, Teresa of Avila. Meghan Don makes Teresa’s timeless wisdom fully contemporary through translations of Teresa’s words followed by practical interpretations and brief, inviting meditations. In this award-winning book, Teresa of Avila and Don guide you to explore the voice of the Beloved and knowledge of the self, restlessness of the mind and the care of the body, doubt, loss, intimacy, and more.

“Through her palpable love and profound understanding of Teresa of Avila, Megan Don has given us a book affirming that the contemplative path can coexist with the stress and complexity of modern life, and that each of us can touch those mystical realms that sustain meaning during the most difficult periods of life.”

Gail Straub, author of The Rhythm of Compassion and The Ashokan Way

“We all have a calling, a purpose, a vocation, and Teresa of Avila is praised as a guide for that journey as she surrendered to her destined vocation. This book successfully translates Teresa’s deep experiences and teachings for the people of our time, and illustrates how Teresa - and we - can navigate the work of life and love born of oneness.” 
Matthew Fox, author of The Christian Mystics and Order of the Sacred Earth

Sacred Companions Sacred Community

Sacred Companions Sacred Community brings to light the long hidden teachings of Clare of Assisi, the companion, and oft-times, teacher of Francis of Assisi. Clare teaches us how to live in peace with our companions on this earth; through intimacy, friendship, and in community. Following Clare we enter into a practical and sacred journey of healing and companionship, addressing the longing inside each of us as we traverse this Earth in search of love. This book is a great companion itself. It is timely, as we all seek the wisdom in bringing ourselves together as a greater community on this Earth, learning how to live and love together in the name of the sacred. Meditations throughout the book will allow you to enter your own journey of contemplation and companionship, as a single person, in relationship, or as a community.

“A book like this can-and will-move you beyond any ‘birdbath Franciscanism’ into a spirituality that is for women and men, for celibates and partnered, for extroverts and introverts, for people with souls and bodies, and even people both Christian and non Christian.” - Fr. Richard Rohr, O.F.M., author of Immortal Diamond, and Just This: Prompts and Practices for Contemplation

“Embodying the guiding wisdom of St.Clare of Assisi, this book gently illuminates our personal, sacred journeys toward the Beloved within, through the mirrors of partners and community. Saint Clare is a peerless example of the path to God and the relinquishing of the ego-self, expressed both through her personal relationship with Francis and in her role as founder and leader of the radical Poor Clares. Don's radiant prose and thoughtfully chosen quotations support each of us to enter into sacred relationship with the truth of who we are.” - Scott, ME

 
SACRED ART

About Sara Egan

I've always been a maker and an artist ... as a kid I was always drawing, painting, making mobiles with shells and sticks, building imaginary buildings with wooden blocks, playing with clay, making jewelry. Running through the background always is deep appreciation of and yearning for connection to the beauty and magic of nature, trees, the stars, the ocean, and the divine feminine.

These days my making and art practices take place in my free time outside of my work at a university in the Boston area.

I have degrees in art history and clinical mental health counseling. I have studied and have certifications in mindfulness meditation, Reiki, massage, Soul Collage, and other areas. I have studied with Aviva Gold / Painting from the Source and Michele Cassou / Point Zero Painting, who both teach art as process.
