Praise for Feasts of Light includes:
"One of the finest writers of our time...using words as wands, she evokes the myths and their magic, bringing us festivals that recharge our minds as they renew our hearts. The goddesses of Egypt, whoever and wherever they may be, are rejoicing in this potent book." -Jean Houston, Ph.D.
"With the same wonder that all of nature stirred in her as a child, Normandi Ellis unlocks the mysteries of the Egyptian calendar and its festivals and leading characters, and brings them fully to life." -Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D.
"At last, Normandi Ellis gives those of us who love the magic and mystery of Egypt a cohesive context and direction for our magical work..." -Nicki Scully, author of The Golden Cauldron, Shamanic Journeys on the Path of Wisdom
"Normandi Ellis always seems as native to ancient Egypt as a fish seems at home in the sea or as a bird appears as one with the sky. In this new book she offers a feast of those God-and-Goddess-intoxicated festivals serving to empower a marvelous civilization whose powers still reach out enriching and enchanting our world." -Robert Masters, author of The Goddess Sekhmet
"Normandi Ellis applies her unique blend of inspired (yet meticulous) scholarship, refined (but passionate) poetic insight and personal experience to the goddess mysteries of ancient Egypt..." -John Anthony West, author of Serpent in the Sky and The Traveler's Key to Ancient Egypt
