The Great Mother Bible

"I love the wisdom and the message of love within this book!" ~ New Age Books Review
Gaia Mystic 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.
Messages from Mother.... Earth Mother
"Mare Cromwell's lively instructions offer enchantment and ageless wisdom packaged in novel and humorous ways." (Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., Co-Author, Personal Mythology)
"A unique blend of prophecy, hope and inspiration meant to enlighten." (Keith A. Wheeler, Chair - IUCN Commission on Education and Communications)
"If anyone can hear what the earth is saying, it is Mare Cromwell. Her book promises to be a rich and consciousness-raising read." (C.M. Mayo, author, Miraculous Air; Journey of a Thousand Miles through Baja California, the Other Mexico)
Messages from Mother.... Earth Mother was born out of a series of intense spiritual experiences Mare Cromwell had in the early summer of 2012. The book was written in only five weeks guided by Earth Mother. In a magical blend of humor and spiritual wisdom, Mare illuminates the overwhelming love Mother has for us. Chatty, opinionated and profoundly compassionate, Earth Mother discusses the environment (her body!), love, war and soul-woundedness, with specific messages for her sons and her daughter two-leggeds. If we could all listen to Earth Mother, perhaps these are the messages we would be hearing to help us birth the New World ahead.

If I gave you God's phone number.... Searching for Spirituality in America
To listen another’s soul into a condition of disclosure and discovery may be almost the greatest service that any human being performs for another."
~ Quaker author and philosopher Douglas Van Steere
Mare Cromwell's book offers the reader what only the best books offer--windows into the most authentic reaches of the soul. Her conscientious selection of interview subjects, and her deft questioning, which presses them to go deeper and deeper, is what lends the book its striking range. I can guarantee that reading this book will enrich your view of spiritual life--in all its radiant variety--forever. --Christopher Noel, author - In the Unlikely Event of a Water Landing - A Geography of Grief
Suppose you could call God... What would you say to Him? Her? And what do you think God might say back to you? Mare Cromwell’s spiritual memoir is framed by twenty-one interviews with people from all walks of life, all of whom give inspirational and sometimes controversial responses to the over-arching question: “If I gave you God’s phone number, what would you do with it?”
Over seven years Mare Cromwell interviewed Christians, Jews, agnostics, a Cherokee Medicine woman and others in her search for a path to bring her closer to God. Sometimes shocking and sometimes inspirational, it is an honest aperture into the diverse perceptions of God, religion and spirituality in our society. It also speaks to one woman's journey away from the Catholic Church to a spirituality that more broadly encompasses a Divine Masculine - Sacred Feminine balance.
