We often marvel at the wonders of art, architecture, and mythology created by the great ancient civilizations. Where did they get the knowledge to leave a legacy that still awes us today-and can we tap that same source of wisdom?

I loved this Audible experience! It is more of an experience or presentation than a typical Audible story or narrative but that worked for me! I'm currently taking a class from Nicki Scully called Egyptian Shamanic Alchemy and I found this a soothing accompaniment to that material, she is a master teacher and seems to have been called to teach and guide from this specific lense.

I can see that if you're not prepared for the music and lacking in a sort of curious intellectual capacity, it might be a bit off-putting. I have recently traveled to Egypt, what an adventure - and, to me, it felt appropriate and respectful of that ancient and wise African culture. Add this one to your collection and enjoy!

I love Tosha's work.
I find it restorative, soothing and entertaining, it has accompanied me on many road trips, inspiring me to find beauty everywhere I look. As we are all seeking to learn, expand, become better than we are, this is a necessary companion on that trip.

Dr. Clarissa Pinkola Estes, published in 34 languages and one of the most far-reaching artist-psychoanalyists of our time, teaches that in archetypal imagination, "Mother Night is the quintessential medial woman, the woman who can walk in two worlds... 'the one who knows' and who can reveal solid ways of living and unleashing creative life in both worlds."

This book is like nothing else you've heard. I adore Clarissa's work so I supposed I am a bit biased. Her voice is like none other, I am so glad she reads her own work, no one else could do it justice.

This book will caress you, soothe you like a balm, hold you, steady you, support you, expand you, surround you. It tells tales that are poignant - but never defeated. You walk taller after listening to it, begin to imagine you are a poet, seeing beauty everywhere you look.

This book "mothered" me in a way I have not truly experienced in this life. I could not be more grateful for the experience, it will be a treasured book I will listen to over and over.

I found this to be remarkably boring, I hate to say it! I really wanted to like it, what a fascinating man and story. This is a painstaking review of mundane cases - most that did not align successfully with the readings, meaning they did not actualize the potential Edgar spoke of. There were a few that were so detailed in random enough ways that one could not deny the relationship to Cayce's readings but they were still boring. Perhaps if it had been less about cases and more about general views and spirituality, I would have found it more interesting. That piece was not touched upon until Chapter 10 - that being that one will continually draw a "lesson" to them until they have learned it (over multiple lifetimes.) I have no doubt that he was accessing information from source, I suppose I failed to see how these past lives were truly meaningful or necessary information to live this current life. My go-to for applicable day to day strategies to improve one's life remains Esther Hicks and the Abrahams crew, that may just be that it is a more modern take on the same information.

A long time fan, it comes as no surprise to experience the robust and satisfying performance of Walter Mosley’s writing. I tried to make it last but gave in to the greed for more and manage to organize the hell out of my closet as I did - at times even laughing out loud or cringing at descriptions all too apt. Thank you, this did not disappoint.

Robert and Olivia Temple's new book, The Sphinx Mystery, is a work of profound significance for Egyptology. Not only do the Temples completely re-analyze what the Sphinx is and represents; they re-trace its epic origins and re-examine its original purpose. In a remarkable investigation, they uncover what was before our very eyes, a startling discovery that even the world's most learned Egyptologists have failed to see.

I don't know how I missed the reviews stating that this is not a book but I did. Not too happy I purchased it and think I should get a refund - were the interviews interesting, yes, mildly. None were in-depth enough to hold my interest and I'm not sure why Audible would allow this to be marketed as a book.

I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this book, I've been hearing about it for years but found the title a turn off. Instead, I found it entertaining with pragmatic steps to discipline your mind and align with abundance. I also liked the historical perspective (written after the Depression) so many of the things he highlights have come true per our professional lives.

"All the women of my family had gone to war... Now my turn had come... So, it is the custom that a free woman leave her mother's house to bind herself and those of her blood to a neighboring clan, either by the sword or by the cradle." So begins the story of young Tamras, as she embarks on her journey to become a warrior's apprentice. This epic story is not about battles and armor, but rather about relationships, coming of age and wisdom, and deep insights into the human experience.

Raised by her aunt and uncle amidst the rolling hills of the Tuscan countryside, young orphan Virginia Tacci has always harbored a deep love for horses - though she knows she may never have the chance to ride. As a shepherdess in sixteenth-century Italy, Virginia's possibilities are doubly limited by her peasant class and her gender.
