Inspired by the consciousness-shifting traditions that have moved seekers for generations, Material Girl, Mystical World is a fabulous adventure in the "Now Age": a sophisticated upgrade on cosmic thinking for women who know that a closetful of designer shoes can happily coexist with a deeply meaningful life.

Set against the backdrop of Ruby Warrington's own transformative path from her dream job as an influential fashion journalist to creating The Numinous, the high-style online magazine about spirituality for modern women, Material Girl, Mystical World invites listeners on a colorful journey to discover their own path to personal enlightenment in every area of life, from love, sex, and relationships, to fashion, beauty, health, and wellness.

From how to survive and thrive at Burning Man to creating rituals that celebrate the Divine Feminine to exploring the shaman in you, Material Girl, Mystical World brings together the best of the Now Age. Merging style and soul, beauty and bliss, and karma and cool, Warrington shows us that it is within our power, right now, to create a life that is both meaningful and fabulous - while also contributing to a major shift in global consciousness.

Not What I was Expecting!!

If you could sum up Material Girl, Mystical World in three words, what would they be?

INCITEFUL. INSPIRING. NECESSARY. As someone who follows Ruby on Instagram and checks her website regularly, I was super excited to get my hands -- in this case, ears -- on this book. This was my first time getting an audio book, and so far, I like the content, but I don't think it was what I was expecting. It is definitely a "guide" and goes into depth about everything, so for that reason, it's a little hard to take in via audio because there's so much information. Probably best in book form so you can really read over and process what she's saying. I look forward to finishing this book, but in the meantime, I'll definitely need to have my notepad ready because there is so much to take in, which is a good thing! Oh! And her narration is excellent!

Advertisement Book

What disappointed you about Material Girl, Mystical World?

The book appears to be as an advertisement for various spiritual gurus.

What could Ruby Warrington have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less talking about her gurus and more about her REAL perception. Lots of material is paraphrased from other books.

What about Ruby Warrington’s performance did you like?

Her narration is fabulous, thus is 5-stars!

What character would you cut from Material Girl, Mystical World?

Half of it.

Very Basic, kinda irritating

A very basic intro to Spirituality. It is a pastiche of a little bit of everything with no direction. In fact the whole book felt like an intro to the aestethic of spirituality rather than real and honest paths to experiences.

Ruby is not a necessarily inspiring teacher. I don't doubt that her techniques work for her and that she is dedicated to her path. However, it all came off as her trying hard to be contrarian even within the spiritualist community. Not to mention it was not inspiring at all to hear about how afraid she is of new experiences.

If you want an intro to the basics of stereotypical spirituality including very surface level touches onto crystals, yoga, plant medicine, pilgrimages, etc then you may find this book to be useful. However, Ruby did not connect with me one iota and if you consider yourself to have any experience on the subject, i would say move on to Gabrielle Bernstein, Eckart Tolle, Mel Wells, Kyle Gray, etc

Loved it!

This my first time listening to an audio book and I really enjoyed it! If you're interested in this book at all, go for it. I almost want to buy a hard copy just to have!

A Must For Newbies

What did you love best about Material Girl, Mystical World?

The author was open and honest about her journey

What did you like best about this story?

My favorite topic was about tarot

Have you listened to any of Ruby Warrington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

n/a

Any additional comments?

I kinda see and agree what the other comments meant regarding her name dropping a lot. Imagine being in a lecture and the professor continuously takes time from the lecture to tell a story about a famous person they've worked with. Other than this great Gems are being dropped. I would definitely recommend to anyone who's started their spiritual journey.
