Micro-meditations and celebratory reflections on actively living as a wild woman. Everyday Enchantments is a love letter to the magic of everyday life, the sweet moments and the profound that we often overlook in our hurry to get from one place to the next. This collection of essays reminds us to escape into the ordinary, find beauty in a simple cup of tea or rereading a beloved novel, and joyfully let our world turn upside down when synchronicity strikes in the form of wrong turns down forgotten lanes and unexpected midnight conversations with the moon. Everyday Enchantments is a study in what it means to live deliciously, joyfully, and magically. And it’s an invitation to conjure your own bliss, because, let’s face it, we could all use a little more magic in our lives. 'An insightful collection of short writings that make you look at the everyday in a whole new light.' Erin Elliot, The Sword of Lumina

This is a lovely book of almost a hundred short stories. Each one has its own theme but the message is still the same. She reminds us to be mindful and find joy in anything you do. I love how readers are immersed into the stories as if we are experiencing it ourselves.

In one story, the author describes eating cherry tomatoes so vividly you feel the same sensations. The same is true in the sunbathing story. You can feel the sun moving along your body as you read her words. In the bookshelf story, I had to laugh at how many times she organized her books. I have done the same things to mine as many times.

The author’s writing style flows so easily and is very descriptive. She write with such passion it is easy to fall into a story and lose yourself. If you enjoy reading books by Clarrisa Pinkola Estes, Ph.D, then you would appreciate the stories in this book.
