Parry, Danaan: The Essene Book of Days

Sunstone Publications, Cooperstown, NY. Published annually.

This daybook offers meditations for morning and evening based on the teachings of the Essenes, a mystic spiritual community who lived in the deserts of the middle east before the coming of Christ. They lived in harmony with the earth, following their inner voices. The meditations are based on the energies of the Earth as she travels the Wheel of the Year, and all the Sabbats are honoured. Each day's page offers space for journalling goals and feelings. The sun sign, moon phase, and moon transits are noted for each day. Printed on creamy, recycled paper, with lovely illustrations following an apple tree through the seasons, it is a delight for the eyes as well as the heart and soul. ~WS
