Beautiful Friends

I have just returned from the Denver, Colorado to be an exhibitor at the International New Age Trade Show, and then visit some friends. It was a rather amazing event.

As I was finalizing my table set-up at the Trade Show the first morning, one of the organizers of the event came over to my table to specifically tell me that she had been learning about my work already and was quite impressed about it. She was certain that by the end of the weekend, everyone in the whole event would know of my books. She even encouraged me to make sure I spoke with one woman who buys for Books-A-Million, because she was confident that woman would want to seek out my books for their 250 stores.

I was blown away.

Then the next day I spoke with one of the board members for the Coalition of Visionary Resources (COVR) that is partnered with INATS and it turns out he coordinates their awards program. He told me he had already been hearing of my work and said point blank: “Please, please submit your book to our COVR awards for next year.”

I was blown away even more....

All of this writing and seclusion over the past few years as I focused on my healing and tuned in closely with Earth Mother to write, and lived off my savings for the most part, was finally starting to shift. I was practically euphoric by the end of the trade show as person after person came up to offer to review the book for a magazine or look into ordering it for their store. Or even have me on their radio show. It was all so humbling and reassuring, finally.

The trip to Denver for this big trade show came just two days after returning from the Netherlands to lead some workshops and participate in the Wisdom Gathering in Dalfsen again (my third year).

I'm collecting serious mileage on some airlines these days as I continue to travel to promote The Great Mother Bible and Mother's wisdom. (Don't ask me about the adventures traveling to the wrong airport to fly to Holland in mid-June since the airline wrote the airport wrong. Oy!)

Part of me would love to stay home and swim a lot and putter around some garden but this is what is being called for right now with the book just out.

I'll be in Maryland in July and early August doing some workshops and book signings - including a panel discussion on the Divine Feminine on July 14th, and the Baltimore Book Launch for The Great Mother Bible on July 17th. This was postponed since I decided to just go on retreat in late March for two months. It was a much needed and very restful retreat. Putting this last book out really exhausted me.

Then in August I'm off to the Pacific NW for three weeks for a retreat with a gifted Native teacher and then two weeks of events in Washington State and Oregon. Please share the word if you might know anyone out in those parts who might be interested in my books and connecting in more sacred ways with Earth Mother.

Then home for several days in late August and off to New York State for an Eco-Spirit Conference and some mini-workshops in Ontario and south of Buffalo.

Then I'm scheduled to go to California in mid-September to speak at a big Goddess Spirit Rising Conference, and do more events there in that region of the country.

Whoosh ... sure hope my plants can forgive me for being away so much. And now I can truly understand why I was guided to not get a cat again several years ago. Putting on some miles for Mother...

It's all good... Hope to connect with some of you along the way.

Hugs, bigLove,
Mare

P.S. Some have been asking me whether I've gotten a grant to do this promotional work. While the Indiegogo campaign in the spring helped somewhat, this travel is largely being funded out of my small savings. It's rather scary to go through the funds like this, but the book needs to get out there. Mother keeps on telling me to trust, and trusting I am... most days. Just to put it out there, I'm open to creative ways to support this promotion work to serve Mother, or any sponsors.

Come join myself and Peter Wilkes, author of A Woman Called God, for a panel discussion hosted by the Baltimore IONs group. (IONS is the acronym for the Institute of Noetic Sciences - Baltimore friends of IONS.)

At the: Center for Spiritual Living - Central MD
362 Main St, Reisterstown, Maryland 21136

Join IONS Baltimore for an exciting, thought provoking panel discussion with 2 like minded authors on the feminine nature of God.

Authors Peter Wilkes and Mare Cromwell will be joining IONS Baltimore for a discussion of the Divine Feminine, or the Female God(dess). Both authors have written new books on the Feminine side of God, and will be talking about their books, with time for group discussion, so bring your questions and thoughts. It is time to honor the feminine in our world and spirituality. Welcome these intelligent, out-of-the-box authors! Books will be available for purchase and signing.

Referred to as ‚"The Voice of Earth Mother" by a gifted Shoshone elder, Mare Cromwell is a multi-award-winning author, nature mystic and international speaker. Her books include: The Great Mother Bible; Messages from Mother.... Earth Mother; and If I gave you God's Phone Number.... Searching for Spirituality in America. She has studied with Native American teachers for nineteen years and currently sits on the World Council for Wisdom Gatherings. www.marecromwell.com

Mare Cromwell was awakened at 5 AM in November of 2013, and given specific instructions from the Great Mother to set aside that winter to listen and write The Great Mother Bible. Out of that spiritual call has come this revolutionary and humorous book of spiritual wisdom that speaks to the wondrous sacred realms in which we live. With teachings ranging from the role of aliens on Earth, the Christ Consciousness, and the need for balance between the Sacred Feminine and Divine Masculine, the Great Mother offers essential guidance to help bring our beleaguered world back into divine harmony.

Peter Wilkes, 'A Woman Called God'

As the son of an Episcopal minister, Peter Wilkes had a first-hand look at the inner workings of organized religion throughout his upbringing. Now seventy years of age he has come to the conclusion that organized religion has continually done more harm than good. In A Woman Called God, the first in his series of Little books for Big people, he goes back to the source and examines how it’s possible to leave Religion – with a capital “R” – behind and reclaim your soul.

And why couldn’t God be a woman? Really, why not? In this adorably playful, yet poignant and timely book, A Woman Called God asks all of us – women and men alike – to consider how the world would and could look if our universal perception of The Creator were not male but female: a mother-figure of unconditional love.

The result of a seventy-year personal journey by the author, and inspired initially by his mother and first wife, A Woman Called God revolutionizes the traditional thinking of organized religion and makes possible a new and inviting path for every woman and man on the planet.

In its short 545 words you may discover a new way of thinking. In its simple 27 hand-drawn stick-figures you could find a new dialogue. And in its compact 45 pages you might even uncover answers that will take you in a new and welcome direction… both for yourself and the world.

"The Great Mother Bible" is considered the Sacred Feminine version of "Conversations with God".

With teachings ranging from the role of aliens on Earth, the Christ Consciousness, and the need for balance between the Sacred Feminine and Divine Masculine, the Great Mother offers essential guidance to help bring our beleaguered world back into divine harmony.

Join us to learn about some of Earth Mother’s wisdom. The event will start with ceremony and include a more elaborate water ceremony with sacred waters from around the world at the pond outside the center. Mare will also lead a meditation activation for a more powerful spiritual connection with Earth Mother. Attendees have been experiencing remarkable spiritual awakenings and connections with Earth Mother with this meditation. Books will be available to purchase after the event.

Some recent reviews about "The Great Mother Bible" from Amazon... most humbling... People have no idea how these reviews keep me buoyed as I wend through the significant work needed to promote the book, and help readers connect to the Love of the Great Mother. Thank you, all of you reviewers...

“I purchased this book as a Mothers Day gift for myself... It was one of the best gifts I could have ever been Blessed with!!! Reading this book has helped me to find my way home on some really personal levels. It was as though Mother was speaking directly to me through the writer Mare. I found aspects of my life written in this bible, correlations that only Mother could have known... She drew me in and led me through with Divine Love and great compassion... If you are reading this because you are wondering if this book is right for you... Then it must be. Because "Mother has led you right here at this time simply because you my dear are ready. One of the best books I have read in a very long time. Easy going, filled with Great Love. You will see your story and you too will find your way Home! Goddess Bless.” ~ Aziza

“(my message to Mare upon reading her beautifully informative Great Mother Bible) ... In between everything else i am doing, i finally just finished The Great Mother Bible the other day! so beautiful mare...truly truly beautiful. thank you so much for sharing much of yourself in there too. that was very courageous and made it personal. i realized why i felt so connected to you right away. we have so much in common. one thing i am curious about is...do you hear her speaking to you as if another person was talking, does her words come through your fingertips while you are writing, or do you sense her words within you? it is amazing how unique our gifts can be even though we are all here serving the same mission. so many things mother said in your book i had always "just known". i never knew where any of it was coming from but i knew they were true. (while others just assumed i was getting stranger and stranger) i realized while reading your book that great mother has been working through me my entire life...from how i was raised, to hard ships i needed to endure, to my angels watching over me, to my connection to free animals and nature...everything! everything just adds up, like it always does. so yeah...thank you so much for being you, for the work you do, and for the love you share. i thank our mother for her divine timing, for bringing soul families and tribes together during this sacred time <3 much love and many blessings to you ((hugs)).
... and many blessing to all of you as well! may you all find peace within this book and recognize the truth of its words.” ~Shiloh27

“Are you ready for a great adventure? This is not a book of stories or aimed at any religion. If ever a novel (sic) could be filled with love and emotion that can sweep you up and fill you full..this is the book. The truly magical experience about reading this book is how the whole world changed before my eyes. The way I now look at plants and animals is not as a passerby. I am connected to these living things and to the earth. I had never considered the possibility that I could communicate with the Earth, and that she in turn would find ways to communicate back. This big old rock with water we are standing on..is so much more complicated and yet accessible to all those who listen. In many ways this teaches balance. How to walk in beauty and stay present. It has helped me with depression and also to find and trust in receiving. How often do we say no..we don't accept help because it makes us appear weaker. But what if one day all of a sudden you started saying yes? Life can take you on a Roller-coaster if you are brave enough to sit in the seat. Mare Cromwell built this whole track and it leads straight back to our roots. We are young of flesh but ancient in our instincts, divine beings in an animal body, emotion and logic, yin and yang. The creator has a feminine side and she has much to say and teach us.” ~ Dana

“The voice of our Mother in Mare Cromwell's Great Mother Bible is a compassionate voice we know to be true. Still, it is helpful to hear that voice delivered in such a revealing and encompassing way, for so many different situations, some mundane and others profound. This is the Mother I can trust, and who's voice I want to hear. I want to have the same sort of conversation Ms. Cromwell has been able to have.

After I read Ms. Cromwell's earlier book If I Gave You God's Phone Number, she asked what I would do if such a thing could happen. I replied "I'd call and ask Him how I could help". With this new book, Ms. Cromwell is giving us a clue, guiding us to how that can happen. This book is a balm.” ~RCW

“The Great Mother Bible by Mare Cromwell is the book I was searching for in this time of great transitions. In The Great Mother Bible I found words of wisdom and solace. The voice of our benevolent Earth Mother, patiently answering questions and giving teachings that are at times simple and yet profound. What comes through Mare's writing is the Love that Earth Mother bestows on us. Mare brings to life a Being whose messages will inspire readers to awaken to this great big earthly adventure, we call life.” ~AM

I have recommended this book to family and friends, and would not think about lending out my copy for fear of losing it. I am attached to this book because it has helped me grow as a human being. The messages from Earth Mother have opened me up to giving and recieving more love and joy in life. Do yourself a favor and buy this book The Great Mother Bible by Mare Cromwell, it may change your life too. ~AL

A great book on listening to the Earth. ~E

I will be leading a three day retreat in late October in Buckeystown, MD at the Bishop Claggett Center, focusing on bringing forth our Sacred Feminine center.

We will be doing ceremony, collect sacred waters from a pilgrimage site in the Catoctins dedicated to the Virgin Mary, walk the labyrinth, and go deep into touching our most sacred center.

More details TBA shortly. Save the Date!

The Great Mother Bible is touching people in very deep and powerful ways. Some have shared that it has helped them heal from depression. Others are feeling the Love of the Great Mother though it in ways they've never known before.

I'm willing to Skype in to join any groups working with the book on a donation basis. If this might be something your goddess circle, Red Tent group, book club or any other group might be interested in, please contact me and we can arrange something. I can't travel everywhere, but I can be there via Skype. xoxox
