Recipes for a Sacred Life is a collection of short, true tales that illuminate the sacred in everyday life. Rivvy Neshama is a gifted storyteller, and these are stories from her life. They are magical and down-to-earth, and steeped in ancient wisdom and the wisdom of her mom. From birth to death; from dancing to forgiveness to walking at dawn; and from a rabbi from Vienna to Irish Rita from the Bronx, they feature people and experiences that taught the author how to live a sacred life. In the spirit of Anne Lamott and Rachel Naomi Remen, this book reveals how ordinary encounters with friends, nature, lovers, and strangers can suddenly connect us with the sacred, adding love, joy, and purpose to our lives.
