Author Snapshot Interview: Robin Corak
I asked a bunch, or should that perhaps be a 'bibliography' of authors...whatever the collective noun for a group of authors is...a few quick snapshot questions.
This week is...ROBIN CORAK
1. What or who inspires you the most and why? Travel has been a big inspiration for me.
Seeing how other cultures live, create art, practice their spiritual beliefs and visiting sacred sites has been an incredible gift for me. I am also greatly inspired by goddesses, other authors, and my fellow sisters in the Sisterhood of Avalon.
2. Do you have any set daily spiritual practices?
Just about every morning, I go and feed the ravens and squirrels that live on my property unsalted peanuts in the shell.I then go to a sacred space in the forest on my property, leave offerings and/or chant or meditate. I also use Caitlin Matthews' Celtic Devotional.
3. What is your favourite subject to write about and why?
I love writing about Goddesses, their myths, and the lessons that they have to share with us. I also enjoy writing about the using spiritual practices for healing and to achieve our full potential.
4. Do you have a sacred or spiritual place/area (anywhere in the world) that you feel connected to?
At home, it is the forest surrounding my property as well as my temple room. I also always feel that bodies of water or a sacred place, especially the ocean. There are many areas in Glastonbury and Scotland that hold significant sacred meaning for me as well.
5. Where do you work your magic/practice your faith? Do you have a special room or area set aside?
I have a temple room that is where I do most of my practice, although I also have multiple altars in my bedroom. When the weather is cooperative, I have a few different locations on my property that I use as sacred space including a simple three circuit labyrinth that I created out of stones.
6. What book/talk/article of yours are you most proud of and why?
I am immensely proud of my recently released book entitled "Persephone: Practicing the Art of Personal Power" because it is the first full book that I have authored by myself. I have had pieces published in anthologies but writing a full book has been a different experience. It has been such an honor to have the opportunity to share the lessons and beauty of Persephone with others and to hear from readers that the book has resonated with them.
