Helping people create meaningful ceremonies for personal and family transitions, celebrations, and healings.

Linda Neale
is amazed and grateful for the presence of the Unexpected in her life.  Through a series of surprising events, she was led to become a writer, teacher, dreamworker, and ceremonial facilitator.   She is also a businesswoman, a community leader, a family therapist, and mentor to many. Her work overlaps the circles of deep ecology, systems thinking, depth psychology, Native American spiritual traditions, and women's spirituality. 

Linda's latest book, The Power of Ceremony: Restoring the Sacred in Our Selves, Our Families, Our Communities is a story about spirituality, ceremony, and relationships.  It describes seven fundamental principles that are essential to renewing spiritual community and restoring ceremony to our modern culture.  Click Here  to see what Story Circle Book Reviews and other reviewers are saying about Linda's book.
