Dreams of Isis:
A Woman's Spiritual Sojourn

Normandi Ellis

$16.00 paper
978-0-8356-0712-4

Drawing on her travels in modern-day Egypt and her lifelong study of Egyptian mythology and art, Normandi Ellis takes us on a moving autobiographical journey through the sacred sites and rituals of Egypt's past, revealing their restorative and transformative power for contemporary women like herself. Ellis's spell-binding prose weaves a tapestry of the personal past and the spiritual eternal in this exploration of the secret wisdom of ancient Egypt.

"Eloquent. With vivid prose and a deeply spiritual intellect, Ellis has created a work of three elements: a lively, scholarly text of Egyptian myth and tradition; a moving account of a personal struggle to transformation; and, as witness to her transformation, a collection of insights into the human experience and psyche. ..A work worth reading." --- Parabola


Normandi Ellis has won numerous awards for her fiction, essays, and translations, which have appeared in Parabola and other national magazines. She has taught writing at the University of Kentucky and English literature at the University of Colorado and elsewhere. Her passion for the psychological and esoteric truths hidden in Egyptian hieroglyphs led to her acclaimed book, Awakening Osiris, a profound translation of the Egyptian Book of the Dead. She lives in Lexington, Kentucky.
