Linda Neale is amazed and grateful for the presence of the Unexpected in her life. Through a series of surprising events, she was led to become a writer, teacher, dreamworker, and ceremonial facilitator. She is also a businesswoman, a community leader, a family therapist, and mentor to many. Her work overlaps the circles of deep ecology, systems thinking, depth psychology, Native American spiritual traditions, and women's spirituality.
Linda's latest book, The Power of Ceremony: Restoring the Sacred in Our Selves, Our Families, Our Communities is a story about spirituality, ceremony, and relationships. It describes seven fundamental principles that are essential to renewing spiritual community and restoring ceremony to our modern culture.

Matthew Fox is one of Linda's most important teachers. His unwanted exit from the Catholic Church led to his ordination as an Episcopal priest. He is author of more than thirty books, and wrote the foreword to The Power of Ceremony: Restoring the Sacred in Our Selves, Our Families, Our Communities which he described as "an important book, a timely book, a necessary book, a useful book, and a powerful book."

THE DAY OF THE DEAD
November 1, 2013
THE DAY OF THE DEAD is an old pre-Christian ceremony usually observed around the time of Halloween. Once upon a time, Halloween also involved connecting to the ancestors. Originally called Samhain, it was the Celtic New Year’s Eve, a night when the “veil between the world grows thin,” spirits of all kinds roam freely, and families would gather together to receive channeled messages from their ancestors.
