Meet Lucy—twelve years old, missing her best friend, and just waiting for an adventure to come her way. When Lucy discovers a mysterious package at her front door, she’s certain it’s meant for her. Never mind to whom it’s addressed. She unties the green string and tears open the simple brown paper to reveal a loom—a golden magic loom. The magic loom leads her to a dusty bookcase and through a secret passageway, into an enchanted world. This new world is filled with fantastic creatures, castles, and vast, colorful landscapes. Lucy quickly encounters several challenges that she can only overcome with the help of her loom. She’ll need to build a bridge, distract a giant beast, fly above an entire forest, and rescue a girl trapped in a castle. Lucy will have to use her imagination and a lot of creativity to come up with solutions that will work. She must focus on her mission and never give up, even when things seem impossible. This story rewards kindness and generosity, and emphasizes the importance of friendship and helping others.

In 'The Magic Loom' the author, Heather McClelland, invites adults who survived trauma in their childhood to become more aware of their sensations. She helps them interweave the narratives and wisdom of both body and mind as they safely explore and make meaning of the past and put it behind them. This is a text for therapists primarily, teaching with metaphor and case-study. Therapists will discover why and how weaving the body and mind together in interpersonal narrative style conversations meets the needs that contemporary scientific research is uncovering. It is the author's hope that survivors themselves may find they can identify with the stories of trauma recovery as they unfold and engage with the Magic Loom's conversational style and translation of the languages of therapy and of science. Neuroscientists inform us that unresolved aspects of early trauma become hidden within a person's somatic memory (van der Kolk, 2006). Memories are not cognitively or narratively retrievable because at the time of the original trauma, the hormonal impacts on the traumatised child's brain prevented vital neural signals from reaching the brain's higher, sense-making parts (Perry, 1997; van der Kolk, 2006). The trauma is remembered, not by her rational mind but by her body. Raising a person's awareness of her body means that key threads can be woven together with the full range of narrative therapy approaches that enable her to explore what her mind presents. The body-focused narrative therapist is learning to listen to an added voice and a different suite of narratives. She is helping to make explicit and visible to the survivor what has long remained implicit and hidden. It's as if the person's body gives her back her voice and her mind. Body-focused narrative therapy owes its transformative power to the synthesis of a range of somatic and narrative approaches.

The Magical Life of Berber Women in Kabylia

Kabyle women from Algeria were believed to have been relegated to a role, subjugated by dominant males, in which they were confined to reproduction, nature, and their sensibilities. The weaknesses created by this inequality were thought to be compensated for by their living inconspicuous lives practicing magic, especially in love. Makilam rejects these preconceived ideas and demonstrates that women’s magic was expressed in every domain of their daily lives: pottery making, food provision/preparation, and weaving. In fact, the traditional Kabyle society was incapable of functioning without women, who ensured its material and spiritual unity.

This book contains poems devoted to the task of turning matter into spirit (Louise Nevelson). They explore the many avenues in which such alchemy takes place. Through art, sculpture, photography, science, nature and other modes, magical transformation can occur, and poetry itself becomes the alchemical vessel revealing these many approaches by which the mundane rises to the level of the transcendent. Her earlier books were clearly marked as inspired by Rumi and other writers from the ancient spiritual tradition, both in subject and style. These poems, though not so obviously spiritual in nature, reach out to include the many contemporary realms in which the sacred and secular fuse, divine and human merge, and the whole becomes one dazzling vision of that we call reality. Praise for Dorothy s writing: Dorothy s words are like radiant sparks emerging from the darkness, birthed by the womb of the universe Herself, and always pointing back to their Source. (Lawrence Edwards, Ph. D., author, The Soul s Journey and Awakening Kundalini. )

The earth, the moon, and the magical path to enlightenment. Written by a practicing witch who conducts classes and seminars on witchcraft—the oldest Western religion, a means of power and enlightenment, and a healing art. “Laurie Cabot has written a fascinating account of a beautiful and sadly misunderstood religion, witchcraft. She has with her life and work done a great deal to legitimize this ancient pagan form of worship. I am among the ecumenical Christians who have discovered the truth about witchcraft, that it is neither demonic nor evil. Power of the Witch is a marvelous introduction to the magical and highly ethical world of wicca.”—Whitley Strieber
