Book Review: Sacred Actions-Living the Year through Earth-Centered Sustainable Practices

Book by Dana O’Driscoll

Dana O’Driscoll’s latest publication, “Sacred Actions-Living the Wheel of the Year through Earth-Centered Sustainable Practices”  is a kindred companion for all who desire to step lightly on this beautiful planet. Her many years of experience in permaculture and love for Nature shine a bright light into the heart of those seeking ways to draw balance, healing, simplicity, and creativity into their life. She offers practical advice, such as ways to recycle compost, and store food to name a few, as well as thoughtful considerations on how our lifestyle choices impact the world around us. Her inspirational, sacred ritual ideas invite the reader to synch with Earth’s natural rhythms, whether we’re living in a busy city, the suburbs, or homesteading in the country. “Care as a Spiritual and Lifestyle ethic” is the theme, heart and soul of every chapter in this book.”

About the author, Dana O’Driscoll, in her own words:
“I enjoy learning and consider myself a lifelong student of nature spirituality and druidry. I’ve been practicing druidry for almost 15 years–Revival Druidry is my home and path. I am a Druid/Bardic Adept and the Grand Archdruid in the Ancient Order of Druids in America (AODA) and a Druid-grade graduate of the Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids (OBOD).  In 2018, I was made the OBOD’s Mount Haemus Scholar for my research on cultivating the bardic arts. For a story of how I came to druidry, please see my post “The Mystery of the Stumps and the Spiral Path: How I came to Druidry.”  For more about my role(s) in AODA, see here.”

  1. I enjoyed reading her blog and how she became interested in Duidry. https://druidgarden.wordpress.com/2012/11/07/the-mystery-of-the-stumps-and-the-spiral-path-a-story-of-how-i-became-a-druid/

    So sad of her experience of having to seeing her tree friends no longer there in the Forest one day and of the beautiful forest she had once enjoyed so much and then she met Alfred a dear friend whom was meant to cross path with and then a new beginning for Dana💖

    1. Yes, Dana was a real comfort to speak with when we lost all our trees in one snowy night (as you recall). She taught me the value of “witnessing” the loss and preparing the space for its next landscape evolution. 🌲❤️
