  From one of the leading spiritual practitioners writing and working today, a landmark book that celebrates a new mythic model for the middle years of a woman's life -- the Queen!

Millions of women are now entering or in the midst of midlife. With unprecedented freedom, education, longevity, and wealth, they hold positions of unheard of responsibility and stature. No longer Maidens, nor Mothers, and not yet old Crones, the question arises: Where do these dynamic, accomplished middle-aged women fit into the traditional description of the three stages of womanhood?

In The Queen of My Self, Donna Henes proposes a completely original paradigm — that of the midlife Queen, a woman in her prime who has achieved wisdom, mastery, and self-esteem — that reflects more accurately the realities and needs of women today. Henes draws on history, mythology, and literature, her own life experience, as well as stories from women in many different societies, situations and stations to provide upbeat, practical, and ceremonial inspiration for all women who want to enjoy the fruits of an influential, passionate, and powerful maturity.

"Finally, an archetype of midlife power and maturity that I can relate to — The Queen. Thank you Donna for providing this much-needed missing piece of women's wisdom."
—Christiane Northrup, M.D.
Author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

  The moon, that celestial silver shape-shifter, has always provided humankind with a mysterious and fascinating nocturnal sky show. From the very earliest time, people have watched its endlessly interesting cyclical changes and wondered. What is it made of? How was it formed? Why does it behave as it does? What does it look like up close? Who lives there? A fascinating compendium of lunar science, myth, folklore, poetry, curious facts and old wives' wisdom culled from cultures throughout the ages and across the globe.

"The Moon: as goddess, as science, as inspiration for poetry — almost everything you could want to know about the moon in a beautifully crafted book. Donna Henes' lovely work will have an honored place near the altar and near the telescope."
—Margot Adler, author

Seasons, Cycles & Celebrations
By Donna Henes
Illustrations by Joonhee Lee

Seasonal rituals from around the world and the natural phenomena that inspire them.

(Perigee:Putnam/Penguin 1996)

From ancient times to the present there have been special days that mark the passage of time, announce the arrival or retreat of the sun, moon and stars, and signify holy days and holidays alike. CELESTIALLY AUSPICIOUS OCCASIONS presents a fascinating cross-cultural exploration of the seasonal rites and rituals inspired by these heavenly events.

"This delightful compilation . . . provides a lively narrative combining folklore, customs and poetry (which) covers many different cultures in this well written, readable book."

Ward's Island Energy Trance Mission
By Donna Henes
Photos by Sarah Jenkins
Text with black & white and color montages.

(Astro Artz. 1982)


In 1980, Urban Shaman Donna Henes conducted a three-week ritual healing residency with the patients and staff at the Manhattan Psychiatric Center at the invitation of the medical director. Her diary documents the process of this extraordinary project. Her notes and musings explore the realms of sanity, insanity, creativity, and spirituality as they are perceived and handled in many cultures.

"It was not until I came across Dressing Our Wounds in Warm Clothes, which captures the texture of the poem-houses of my dreams, that I met another journal-keeper who built houses from visions of minuscule, ordinary beauty. My houses are poems and journal entries for me now, and I thank Donna Henes for that."

Part One: Mythology, the Matriarchy, & Me
By Donna Henes

Goddess-inspired writings and original ceremonial chants. (Monarch Press 1998)



Contents: Terra Mater. Valentines and Vulvas. Mother's Milk.

A spoken word celebration of the stellar and earthly goddess in all of us. The recording is a three-part exploration of the feminine in myth, religion and archetypal psychology; a remarkable survey of beliefs, stories and ritual practices that have been passed down to the present time by millennia of wise women around the world.

"Listen up! Nourish your ears. Here's the first and last word on goddess energy, breast power, and dirty girls. You gotta hear it. You'll be amazed."
