The Great Work: Self-Knowledge and Healing Through the Wheel of the Year


by Tiffany Lazic

Fusing ancient Western spirituality, energy work, and psychology, The Great Work is a practical guide to personal transformation season by season. Learn to be truly holistic by incorporating key physical, emotional, and energetic practices into your life at times when the natural tides are in harmony with your process.

The Great Work captures the core essence of each festival with eight key themes that span the annual cycle?a cycle that reflects human development and experience. Discover how Yule can alleviate a painful childhood, how Beltane can facilitate conscious relationships, and how Mabon can assist with determining your life’s purpose. Find guidance through daily journal questions, elemental meditations, and the author’s unique energy-healing technique of Hynni. With this invaluable resource for your journey of inner alchemy, you’ll develop an intimate connection with the earth’s impulse to create balance and harmony.

“Tiffany Lazic weaves together psychology, myth, meditation and keen observation of the natural world, creating an invaluable and original resource for healing work of all kinds. Inviting and accessible to all readers.”?Elizabeth Cunningham, author of The Maeve Chronicles

The Great Work presents inspiring insights and practical exercises that help unlock the alchemical mysteries at the heart of the Eightfold Path, and which facilitate a deep connection with the cycles of nature as they reveal their transformational powers in all of us.”?Jhenah Telyndru, author of Avalon Within
