Sophia's Return
A Guide to Creating A Goddess-Inspired Sacred Circle
by Purple Goddess

Sophia's Return is an exploration of Goddess spirituality and an instructional book. It encourages women to lead their own sacred circle using the Celtic Wheel of the Year and shows them how to run a sacred or spirituality circle. This book includes the script for eight ceremonies typically used for the Celtic Wheel of the Year, for example, Summer Solstice, Autumn Equinox, Winter Solstice and Spring Equinox. Each ceremony includes a guided meditation and information about the Goddess honoured during that ceremony. Sample Maiden, Mother and Crone ceremonies as well as a personal memoir recounting the author's own story and Goddess experience are included. This book is a beneficial tool for women of all ages who might be feeling a call for spirituality with the Feminine at its centre. One of the goals with this book is to give the reader the basic tools and foundation of knowledge to get started to run their own sacred circle in a simple and easy-to-use format.

"A valuable resource for those seeking the Goddess." —Carol P. Christ, author of Rebirth of the Goddess and leader of Goddess Pilgrimages to Crete "Sophia's Return, A Guide to Creating a Goddess-Inspired Sacred Circle is a beautifully written guide book for women returning to the Mother of us All. A unique and practical resource for creating a meaningful life and community grounded in the sacred mysteries of the earth." —Jennifer Berezan, singer/songwriter, producer of ReTurning, a crosscultural chant-based recording "Anne, The Purple Goddess, has rung the temple bell, summoning us, lovers and seekers of the sacred feminine, to enter the temple - the home of Sophia and goddesses of all forms. Luckily, we are well prepared to join or lead the sacred circle, through all the seasons of the turning year, now that we have this beautifully crafted guidebook of simple-to-use scripts, ritual tools, ancient myths and resources. Together we will celebrate Sophia's Return. May it be so!" —Erica Ross, author/artist of She Reflects: A Spiral Journey for the Feminine Soul
