Briana Saussy, Author and spiritual counselor
Briana Saussy is a writer, teacher, and spiritual counselor, who is at the leading edge of a growing community of soulful seekers.
Briana's work empowers people who want a practical and creative approach to spirituality, combining the riches of the world's religions, modern psychology, and the often overlooked and forgotten regions of folk divination, magic, and storytelling.
Briana is the author of Making Magic: Weaving Together the Everyday and the Extraordinary. Her writing has been featured on Elephant Journal, Tiny Buddha, and Kind Over Matter and in Orion magazine, Amulet magazine, Plant Healer Quarterly, and various books.
One of her fundamental observations is that a great body of interrelated sacred/magical practices—which have been the global norm in human civilizations for eons—was thrust into the darkness (or "occulted") as a consequence of complex historical factors. Far from being eccentric and fringe, this body of practices offers basic ways for ordinary people around the world to find meaning and guidance through the tumultuous terrain of human life.
Popularly rejected as superstition, these practices are actually entryways into a grounded and pragmatic spirituality that leads to personal sovereignty, and to a life of wholeness, holiness, and healing.
