What readers have to say about The Dancing Animal Woman

Mark Levy, Professor of Art: It is a wonderful effort, beautiful with splendid images which are reverberating in my psyche. I found the insistence on the body and its extension into nature as the necessary vehicle for spirituality particularly meaningful. . .

Margaret Siberry, England:

Anne Hillman’s personal and honest account of the movements within her reached me in so many ways. Although my life situation is different from hers, she speaks to what is universal in us all. What has astounded me is how helpful and memorable her images have been to the number of friends I’ve related them to, to see the smile appear on their faces, that slow-dawning ‘Ah, yes!’ experience. . . Since reading the book six weeks ago, I”ve not had it! It’s been passed on to others whilst waiting for extra copies to arrive.

Wayne McCusick, Physicist:
I helped to start a college for retired folk at The Rochester Institute of Technology and suggested The Dancing Animal Woman to my class there as a fine example of sharing a spiritual journey, beautifully written. We discussed each of the four parts in class, and I could write pages about the power and richness it holds for me.

Charlene Spretnak, Author and Professor:
I’ve recommended it to the women’s monthly book discussion group here . . .
.
Rosemary O’Hara, Marriage and Family therapist (one of several therapists who have recommended the book to their clients): I am in my second reading of The Dancing Animal Woman. How very much I appreciate both Anne Hillman’s writing and the sharing of her spiritual quest! She expresses herself so beautifully.

Barbara Turner-Vesselago, PhD, Freefall Writing Workshops:
I am loving this book. A student of mine piped up at a workshop, “Have you read The Dancing Animal Woman? It’s the best book I think I have ever read. I’ve become its advocate! I’ve never read a book that so exactly describes where I am. The writing is warm and embracing, rich and full. And passionate! I revel in it and it speaks to me on every page.

Barry Gill, Emeritus Professor of Writing:
I am on the second reading of The Dancing Animal Woman and even more intrigued than I was on the first. There is so much going on at different levels, and I keep experiencing so many points of reference that I am drawn deeper and deeper. . . There is a such sense of arrival throughout the book, and of a new consciousness.
.
Rosamonde Miller, Bishop:
It all came out of this author’s body, out of her guts. I have ordered 12 copies for my students and the priests I am training. . .
.
Elizabeth Reveley, England:
Having read The Dancing Animal Woman, reread parts of it, and then meditated upon it, I can say it is one of the most amazing books I have ever read. It spoke to me in so many ways and I could identify with so much of it. It helped to clarify and put into beautiful language many things I have been thinking about, and I will always treasure it.

Rita Marsh, Board Chair, Davi Nikent, A Center for Human Flourishing, www.davinikent.org Our local book group has started reading The Dancing Animal Woman. Wow! It is a book for this time for sure. Am in awe that you created the book in 1995. You are an amazing pioneer in the realm of consciousness shifting!

Sister Susannah, Director, Retreat Center:
We will order your fine book for our book store. I shared some of your content with a class I am teaching at the college on Spirit of the Earth, and I wouldn’t be surprised if some of them order it as well. . .

Bea Ledyard, Psychotherapist:
A wonderful book! The author’s stories from her life and the wisdom of her insights are very healing. I’ve shared passages with some of my groups and am impressed with the clarity and intimacy of the writing itself.
