Book 1 of Baba's Secrets of the Old Ways
Author: Patricia Robin Woodruff MDIV
"Yulianka knew her grandmother was a witch, so when Baba showed up that gray and boring day, the young girl thought Baba must have read her mind."... with these words a young girl embarks on a journey of discovery to find out about her Slavic heritage. If you have never quite connected with the religion you were taught, it may be that your soul calls you back to the Old Ways. Learn the secrets that have been hidden for a thousand years; the secrets of the Earth and Stars that have persisted since before written history. Long before Christianity, the Indigenous people in the Slavic lands lived in harmony with nature. They listened to the nature spirits of water and woods, learning the healing properties of plants. They could see that life was circular, just like the seasons. Spring transformed into the lush season of summer and fruits, berries and grains were harvested. Then the Wheel of the Year turned and the winter was upon them; a time to pull inward and rest. Yet with the coming spring, the world was reborn! The God and Goddess of the Slavs were joyful providers; giving their people golden apples, grapes and ripe grain. Their God and Goddess transformed with the seasons. When the indigenous religion was forced to go underground, the teachings were kept alive in tales. This is such a tale.
