One such person is Judika Illes, consummate independent scholar and wise woman. Judika was instrumental in the publication of my first book, Back in Time Tarot. I treasure her friendship, value her research and admire her contribution to both esoterica and practical spirituality.
Judika's latest book--Encyclopedia of Mystics, Saints & Sages--is yet another gift to the metaphysical community. HarperOne, her publisher, sent me an extra copy by mistake...so I thought it would be a wonderful way to celebrate the season of giving by offering you a chance to win it!
All you need to do to be entered into the random drawing is to include TWO elements in your one comment: 1. What you are MOST thankful for this Thanksgiving (stories more than welcome!) and 2. The mystic, saint, sage or wise person that MOST inspires you right now. That's it!
Comments are open right now, and will close for the drawing Monday, November 28, 2011 at 10 AM EST. Because of shipping costs, only commenters living in the contiguous United States are eligible for this particular giveaway (this book is heavy!). I trust you understand. However, if you live elsewhere and want to share (I hope you will!), just mention that you live outside the allowed area but wanted to chime in on the gratitude fest.
Let the thankfulness begin (and good luck)! (P.S. I may even put your entries in one big gratitude post. The world NEEDS more good news and uplifting stories, don't you think?)
