Heroines of Avalon & Other Tales is a collection of British myth and legend written to inspire and empower the contemporary reader who wishes to remember how to live harmoniously with the Earth. There are six stories of heroines, who often speak in first person. The tale of the first person to achieve the Holy Grail is found within these pages, and yes, Dindraine was a woman. Sullivan offers the cultural and religious significance of each heroine, her special gifts, and the mystical elements associated with her -- colors, trees, animals and rituals.
There are also guided meditations specifically designed to call forth that figure’s protection, essence and empowering qualities, so that the modern day woman can embody and strengthen her own spirit. Each story is unique to its Welsh, Scottish or British origins, with a dash of Arthurian magic, a glimpse of Glastonbury, and an exploration of the more ancient Avalon. These are empowering stories for women and men who seek animated and enchanted worlds.
