If you are looking for your Inner Goddess, perhaps you may find her in this goddess guidebook series. Journey with me through the intersection of spirituality & sustainability, and see how you can craft for yourself a new and simple lifestyle that honors Mother Earth.
The First Two Books in the New Hampshire Goddess Chronicles Series:
The New Hampshire Goddess Chronicles, Vol 1: Light Your Torch! is an orgasmagical spiritual safari taken with a pantheon of goddesses as guides. With torches raised high, this group of women journey with Voluntary Simplicity down the long brown path together. Around every corner something new is illuminated: an Agawam chief’s grave, a trip to inner space, a lover’s soulful kiss, the magic of herbs, the joy of Beltane. You laugh, you cry, you see yourself mirrored in the torch-time adventures.
This goddess guidebook helps you find your intuitive inner goddess.
New Hampshire Goddess Chronicles, Vol. 2: A Scorpion in the Desert finds us in Sedona, Arizona, and the Grand Canyon. We are on a vision quest of sorts, searching for energy vortexes amidst ancient ruins, fry-bread, empty nests, and climate change. We battle scorpions and buses full of tourists. Do we find what we are looking for? This book uses Dr. Steven Farmer’s EarthMagic® Oracle Cards as a transformational tool to guide you towards your own True North.

Back Cover Praise for Volume 1:
Don’t pick up this wee book unless you want more peace and bliss. Don’t read these torch-lit words unless you want to remember yourself as a green goddess. Whatever you do, don’t take its message to heart. Or you may find yourself humming a chant, walking a labyrinth, picking wild weeds for a salad, or even attending a moon lodge. And don’t peek either.”~ Susun Weed, herbalist, author of the Wise Woman herbal series, and voice of the WiseWoman Tradition
“I loved reading this book! It is an openhearted, inspiring and supportive account of one woman’s spiritual adventures. I hope her journey will inspire others to embark on their own quests for depth and joy, because our world needs more people who are so fully alive.”~Rev. Frank Clarkson, Unitarian-Universalist Minister
Back Cover Praise for Volume 2:
“Ms. Allen tells the tale of her emergence into a deeper spirituality in a very conversational style. Any woman who reads this will certainly relate to her tribulations, triumphs, and the insights that she gathered along the way. It’s as if she is speaking directly to the reader and inviting her along on her journey.” —Dr. Steven Farmer, author of Earth Magic®, Earth Magic® Oracle Cards, and Animal Spirit Guides. (www.earthmagic.net)
“Every woman should sit down with a cup of hot tea and join RM on her adventures. She takes us back to our ancestors, connects us with mother earth, and gives us a vision for the future to help us start our own journey.” —Tracey Miller, nutritionist, health coach, and co-founder of the Food and Health Forum series.

What is it all about?
In Vol.1, Marie, a 40-something woman, reinvents herself through opening up her awareness to messages from the universe. Finding herself working in a church office, she sees an opportunity to find the answer to THE big question “what is the purpose of life?” – right from the horse’s mouth. She looks high and low in that church for the answer. After thorough investigation, and a trip to the bell tower, the answer begins to reveal itself, but not in the way she had imagined. Armed with the combination of Voluntary Simplicity and Dr. Doreen Virtue’s deck of Goddess Oracle Cards, Marie goes on romping spiritual safari and is joined by a bunch of goddess friends who show up along the way. They recognize synchronicities when they happen (even if it is disguised as a big bowl of ugly), and they all shout out raucously “Boom shaka –lucka!” This fun goddess guidebook helps you find your way.
In Vol. 2, Marie travels with spiritual friends to the desert in search of vortexes and other enhanced energies. The trip starts in Phoenix, journeys through the Red Rocks of Sedona, into the Navajo Nation, and deep down into the Grand Canyon. Sometimes things just don’t go as planned! Where can she go to avoid buses of Italian tourists? When will the altitude stop playing tricks on her? Who flies the nest? What is the Universe trying to tell her? Does the fry-bread win? The desert travel tale is sprinkled with discussions of creativity classes, empty nests, astrology, farmer’s markets, community gardens, climate change, and the Occupy movement. Interspersed worksheets, that are aligned with Dr. Steven Farmer’s EarthMagic® Oracle Cards, plumb insights from the reader. This goddess guidebook helps women to find their intuitive inner goddess; at the intersection of spirituality, simplicity, and sustainability.
Note from the Author:
This goddess guidebook series was written with the hope that you may find your own intuitive inner goddess, or feminine power. There comes a certain time in a woman’s life when may know it is time to reinvent herself. She is wondering what to do now. She may wonder if all she has experienced so far is all there is. She may wonder the biggest question of all – what is the meaning of life? So many questions!
The volumes in this series can be used as a beginner’s guidebook to help you find your own way. I hold myself up as a mirror for you to see parts of yourself reflected. Each book will use a different set of oracle cards as the vehicle for the journey. The Torch-Time and EarthMagic exercises within may help you to develop your own intuition.
As the famous mythologist Joseph Campbell often said, you must “follow your bliss.” “To each their own” I say. You may find your own inner goddess through the Catholic church, a Hindu retreat, reading tea leaves, or in your own backyard herb garden.
Or you may get your own deck of cards and join me on the long brown path lit by goddess torches and the moon. The point is to be receptive to new experiences, and to let those experiences open your heart, and in there, patiently waiting, you will find your own intuitive inner goddess. Wait ‘til you hear what she has to say to you!
In no way does this constitute a new religion. This book will not cure all that ails you. This book is simply about an ordinary woman on spiritual safari. You can safely follow along through the cosmos from the comfort of your couch or beach towel. You can dig a little deeper by browsing thru some of my social media sites listed below. What fun!!
