Reviews

Highly recommended. Sacred Actions is an excellent resource for developing sacred relationship with the earth in dedicated spiritual practice and acts of daily life. Pennsylvania-based author Dana ODriscoII is steeped in Druidry and the U.S. homesteading movement. She is Grand Archdruid of the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA), and an OBOD Druid. She is a Mount Haemus scholar, lecturing on Channeling the Awen Within in 2018. In a recent blog post in Druids Garden (https://druidgarden.wordpress.com) she describes Sacred Actions as presenting a hybridization of nature spirituality, sustainability and permaculture practice. The book is built around the wheel of the year and its eight festivals. ODriscoII begins with the Winter Solstice, where her theme is the ethics of care, applied at both the private and public levels. New life practices are supported by specific exercises and rituals. She continues the same approach with the other festivals: Imbolc -- wisdom through oak knowledge and re-skilling; Spring Equinox -- spring cleaning and disposing of the disposable mindset; Beltane -- sacred action in our homes; Summer Solstice -- food and nourishment; Lughnasadh -- landscapes, gardens and lawn liberation; Fall Equinox -- earth ambassadorship, community and broader work in the world; Samhain -- sustainable ritual tools, items and objects. To prospective readers I suggest an initial reading, followed by more intensive engagement with the individual chapters, season by season. Use this textto identify what inspires and moves you and has the power to bring a richer sense of 'sacred actions into your own life. Sacred Actions is a powerful source of ecological and ethical inspiration, and a fine addition to Druid literature.-- James Nichol, Touchstone: the journal of The Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids
