Denice Garrou: Teaching Paganism through Fiction

(RevKess grew a brain again and decided to try doing show notes during the show! Bear with him.)

KaliSara and RevKess were joined by Denice Garrou, a visionary author who uses the written word to share her understanding of Paganism, spirituality, and magic with her reading audience. Denice grew up with horses and uses the horse as her muse. That is evident with her Dragonhorse Saga:

“What if who you truly are is lost from your memory just to keep you alive? A love story that must endure the transcendence of time and dimensions. Young Shion’s life ripped from her, bound by a prophecy she herself had made a lifetime before, has become a seeker of the forgotten knowledge. She must fulfill her quest to relearn and regain her inherent power, before she can reclaim her life and the memory of her one true love. A thought provoking jaunt, back to a time when magic was forbidden, gypsies and witches were hunted, and dragons no longer lived, or didn’t they?.”

Sumayah, book two in the Dragonhorse Saga:

“Would you forsake your life and your love to save those you have never met?
Book 2 takes us back to how it all began; back to Shion’s lifetime as Sumayah. She is caught in a web of two loves; the mysterious one promised to her and the Fae Prince trying to save his realm. This tale of love begins in the ancient realm of Lemuria, a realm of unspeakable beauty and magic thought to be only a myth by the human race.
But, there is blood on the moon as impending invasion threatens the lives of those who live there.
Sumayah soon learns her life is not her own and is thrust into a world of uncertianties and sacrifices.”

Her target audience starts at age 14, but she has won some measure of success with readers of all ages – especially women over 50. Listening to her speak about her experience as a writer and where her ideas come from it can become clear as to why she has gained such popularity.

In her writing Denice brings in Lumeria, the Illuminati, and much more including the mythic city at the center of the Earth – Agartha.

Denice also has delved into what she calls “light romance” that turned out to be a little bit more than just a romance. Candlelight and Cobwebs: “Curses are real . . .
Rosalind never thought about ancestral curses until she inherited an estate called Wynterhaven in the mountains of Colorado, from a family she never knew she had.
Upon entering this sprawling estate, she is hit with visions, déjà vu, and plenty of bumps in the night. She soon finds her new home is inhabited by a gift-bearing raven, an extremely large black cat, and a talking skull.
Through the candlelight and cobwebs, she finds her great-grandmother’s diary, a book of shadows that takes her back to 1918 and a time of heightened interest in archaeology, spiritualism, and secret societies. Learning of her great-grandmother’s previous life as an Oracle of Delphi, Rosalind takes yet another step back in time to the ancient Greece of Alexander the Great, finding a time of misogyny, sexual freedom, and the continual political binding and dissolution of Goddess worship.
Follow along with Rosalind as she is taken through the forbidden history of her lost past and discovers curses, the occult, mystery, and a love story that transcends time and mortality.”

Denice spoke at length about fellow author Dolores Cannon, an early hypnotherapist that specialized in past life regressions. One book in particular was mentioned, The Search for Hidden Secret Knowledge. She also spoke of her own regression.
