We are delighted to announce a stunning new book of women's writing, photography and art titled SACRED STONE, SACRED WATER: Women Writers and Artists Encounter Ireland.

Sacred Stone, Sacred Water will be published on April 2, 2019 by the excellent independent publishers White Cloud Press, which has specialized in World Religions, Spirituality, Ecology, Yoga, Politics and Memoir since 1993. 

This fundraiser is for book publicity, marketing, printing and outreach.  Book publishing is an expensive proposition, especially a high-quality art book such as Sacred Stone, Sacred Water.  

In this time of widespread heartbreak for the earth and the future of all communities, Sacred Stone, Sacred Water will be an offering of hope and beauty.  It's themes are healing, reconciliation, connection with the ancestors, and intimate love of the land, spirit and nature.

“Beautifully woven in image and word, this cornucopia is surely a jewel in the crown of Tír Ghrá  (an ancient Irish phrase which means “love of land”) literature.  Booklover, read aloud to taste and hear the fulsomeness, the music and richness of these deep, passionate experiences! I fully endorse this book, and every seeker of holiness, love and wholesomeness will delight in it.”
                  - Nóirín Ní Riain, Irish musician, spiritual teacher & author of Listen with the Ear of the Heart

“Sacred Stone, Sacred Water is a blessing, offering undeniable beauty and magic. The earth, sky, light, river and stones speak their holy language through the words and images of these wise and gifted women who made a pilgrimage to Ireland to know the Old Ones in this life.”
           -Deena Metzger, author of A Rain of Night Birds and Writing For Your Life
“This delicious and thoughtful book is almost as good as going to Ireland yourself.  Through the eyes of insightful women traveling together, you’ll feel as if you are with them in a stone chamber as the autumn equinox light enters it, or visiting the sacred well of Brigid, or tramping along the green, rain-soaked hills.   A must-read.
                  - Mary Dingee Filmore, author of An Address in Amsterdam
