Where to buy Be a Goddess!

I am rabidly devoted to helping people and BE A GODDESS! is no exception; it leads the reader, woman or man, step by step, deeper and deeper into a shamanic journey that can help one find love, prosperity, great sex, inner peace and spiritual power. For instance, with this book you can learn rituals to remove the inner obstacles that keep you from being your happiest and of maximum service to the community.

What folks have kindly said about my book:

Lynn Andrews, author of MEDICINE WOMAN and LOVE AND POWER: "Francesca De Grandis has given us an inspirational bridge between ancient wisdom and our current life. Her guide to self-healing is profound."

Margot Adler, author of Drawing Down the Moon, and Heretic's Heart: " A well written and superb step-by-step introduction to Celtic Shamanism....lovely rituals.... a smart and cogent introduction to the old religion, by some one who has learned wisdom the hard way: by putting in her time. I loved it. It is an important book."

Annie Sprinkle: porn star; prostitute turned multi-media sex artist; sex magic workshop facilitator: "Do let Francesca weave her spell on you. The wisdom she so generously shares can help us all become even more of the magnificent (sex) goddesses we already are. She turned me on to some beautiful rituals. I was inspired."

Goddessing Regenerated: ''...refreshingly new...of value to both beginners and advanced practitioners...great opportunities for growth, healing, and spiritual development...[De Grandis is] a true Shamanic teacher...eventually take its place among other Pagan and Goddess Spirituality works of note, such as Starhawk's The Spiral Dance, Margot Adler's Drawing Down the Moon, Z. Budapest's Grandmother of Time... It'll bless you''

The Witch's Web, Brad Miller: " important offering; belongs on the shelf next to "The Spiral Dance" and "Drawing Down the Moon"...fresh and insightful, with an eye for the sensitive needs of her readers...a mystical, transforming experience...offers much to the student both new and advanced.. it is destined (or should be) to achieve the acclaim of the aforementioned titles ["The Spiral Dance" and "Drawing Down the Moon"]"

Covenant of the Goddess Newsletter, Rowena K.: "astounded me no end...subtle and profound...The exercises are well planned and effective.The amount of hidden deep level knowledge in this book is staggering. I recommend this book very highly, not only to beginners but advanced practitioners as was a learning experience,..."

What folks have kindly said about me:

Starhawk: "A witch who knows her stuff"

Z. Budapest, founder of The Women's Mysteries in the U.S. and author of Summoning the Fates: "Francesca De Grandis is a long time, charismatic, passionate teacher of the Goddess. This book is her offering to the new generation."

Students & Clients:
"I gained incredible insight and valuable tools for making necessary changes...a testing, tugging feeling of adventure... the realization of birth, of being mother to yourself. Francesca, midwife and godmother in my rebirth...she changes lives like no-one else...I felt welcome and safe...Francesca offers authentic teachings...her program integrates the rigor of non-academic scholarship with a depth of emotional, psychic and physical experience that's rare...a truly comprehensive and complete training that leaves you an experienced witch...kindness and fun...My life has opened like a rose."

Harper has been wonderful to me. I would like you to see the Be a Goddess! bookcover. For once, a book cover that is actual art!

Here's excerpts from the earlier page I put up about the book in, maybe, March, 1997, (the page had revisions later.) Excerpts include: how my background working in old-fashioned cozy dusty weird and mysterious occult shops influenced my book; praise for those front line priest(esse)s whom I call metaphysical merchants; and an offer to metaphysical merchants.

This page will be regularly updated with news about the book and my author appearances.

Sincerely Yours, Francesca De Grandis
