Written by Harrow, Judy. Published: 08 October 2006. Based on the title, I thought Devoted to You would be a kind of ‘how to’ book, and in one sense it is – but not in the manner I expected. Four deities are the focus of the four chapters: Anubis, Gaia, Brigit, and Aphrodite, beginning with a summary of mythology then going to list correspondences, ways to become attuned to that Deity’s energy, and finishing with a sampling of rituals to attract that deity’s presence.

This book is for the more advanced Wiccan. Ms. Harrow wrote the introduction (and conclusion). In which she explains that she hopes the readers will use this book as a template to focus on their own deity of choice. Divided into four chapters, one written by each of the authors, you get an in-depth overview of one of four deities. Anibus, Brigit, Aphrodite and Gaia are all focused on in the Turning of the Year. Chapters each have their own unique feel. The things they have in common are a wealth of knowledge on the God or Goddess they are devoted to exploring.

For more advanced Pagan worshippers who are ready to deeply interact with their religion, Devoted to You offers an insightful and complete exploration of four significant deities. Many witches and Pagans worship specific Goddesses and Gods, gaining insight and guidance from their presence. Wiccans can look to Aphrodite to connect them with love, beauty, and sex. Gala, Mother Earth, teaches about the living planet, helping Pagans to appreciate and care for her. Brigit, the Celtic Goddess of creativity and healing, inspires readers to develop their own talents and skills. Anubis guides the way into the deep mysteries of death and transformation. Like all the ancient Gods, these four can enlighten and inspire today just as they affected the lives of those in ancient civilizations.

Devoted to You features information on these four deities from a variety of cultures: Egyptian, Celtic, Greek, each written by an expert in his or her field. Readers will gain an understanding of the archetypes that devoted Wiccans are drawn to; the names the deities have been called in various cultures, times, and places; and the various myths associated with the Gods and Goddesses. Each deity is also connected with one of the four Earth Sabbats and they are explained with regard to suggested ritual and meditative exercises. In Devoted to You, Judy Harrow offers advice on how to apply these insights and power to daily life.

A highly readable and very informative comparison study of four different ways to devote oneself to a specific Deity. If one wishes to practice henotheism, this is an invaluable starting point.

Get four books for the price of one. That's what you have here. This book is for the more advanced Wiccan. Divided into four chapters, one written by each of the authors, you get an in-depth overview of one of four deities. Anibus, Brigit, Aphrodite and Gaia are all focused on in the Turning of the Year.

Ms. Harrow wrote the introduction (and conclusion). In which she explains that she hopes the readers will use this book as a template to focus on their own deity of choice.

Chapters each have their own unique feel. The things they have in common are a wealth of knowledge on the God or Goddess they are devoted to exploring. Correspondences, rituals, meditations and stories grace the pages of each chapter. I learned a lot about each deity that I hadn't known before.

This book is not for the faint of heart or those looking for some light reading. There were many times when I had to reread a passage to get the full meaning out of it. References to other writings are footnoted. Each chapter ends with a list of resources for additional study. There are songs, poetry and maps, as well as photography included in the book's pages.

If you are ready to bring your connection to God and Goddess to the next level, this book is for you. Expect to do some work, this book is for the serious Wiccan student.

This book is actually a collection of essays compiled by Ms Harrow that explore the myths of and ways of worshipping particular deities in order to inspire Pagans in ways in which they can worship their own Gods.

The book begins with a very strong and interesting chapter on Anubis written by Geoffrey W. Miller. I really enjoyed his retelling of the myth of Anubis and Bata. I'd never heard the story before and until then, had no mind to explore the Egyptian mythology at all. His reteling made it accessible though and I was able to see the meaning of the story as well. I wasn't as impressed by his ritual but I did think he captured Anubis's personality ad offered some useful ways of working with him and other Gods of the underworld

The chapter on Brighid that followed was far and away my favourite. Alexei Kondratiev certainly knows how to use Celtic mythology to construct ways of worship, don't he? I particularly enjoyed his prayers and a now using one of them every night before bed. His description of her personaity and the idea that those she is patron to are her fster children was very, very accurate as well. He captured her supremely well andave memany idas on working with her.

To be honest, I wasn't overly impressd with the rather dry chapter on Aphrodite by Maureen Reddington-Wilde. It may be just that I have no interest in Greek mythology whatsoever but I also had no interest in Egyptian until I read the chapter on Anubis. I think she gave too much information on history ad not enough on the actual Goddess herself. A disappointing chapter.

The final chapter was also a favourite. It explores ways in which we can care for Gaia (Mother Earth) and includes many exercises in connecting with her and assessing the amount of damage as individuals we do unknowingly. I found it quite inspiring, reassuring, helpful and filled me with a sense of determination to better care for the Land.

Oveall, this book is more than worth the read. We need more Pagan books like it, books that focus on the spiriutality of beingPagan and not just the 101s of the "this is what we believe" variety. I enjoyed this book immensely.

I really liked this book. I found it to be a very "smart" book. Its definitely not wicca 101. The personal experiences with the dieties made me want to explore my own paganism. The only problem that I have with this book is Judy Harrows' chapter. In my opinion she was a little rude when it came to her own practices. It is obvious that she does not believe that the gods are literal beings but she seems to convey it in such a way that she is practicing "real" paganism as opposed to the fake reconstructionists. Overall I would say buy this book.

which is why i bought the book for runes, incantations but it is a very poetic book dedicated to 3 deities
