Praise

Praise for Yin Magic

Like a long, deep, beatific exhale, this gentlest book envelops you from the opening page ? as soft as it is powerful, as accepting as it is radical ? a treatise, toolkit and treasure, for all women who seek to re-member their nature.
Eminé Kali Rushton, editor of oh magazine, poetess and holistic practitioner

Another beautiful and instructive book for these weird modern times from Sarah Robinson. A delight to read, Sarah is now a trusted resource in my empowering library.
Alice B. Grist, author of Dirty & Divine and The Book of Tarot

Sarah Robinson has a special talent for taking disparate and complex ancient systems and making them, not only accessible , but making their similarities so glaringly obvious that you wonder why you didn’t see them before.
Sarah has drawn a path that helps the reader find these delicious connections and see the rich similarities and illustrative differences between Yoga and Chinese Medical theory. I learned a lot with this book and enjoyed every minute.
Gina Martin, Classical Chinese medicine practitioner, M.S., Dipl. Ac. (NCCAOM), L.Ac., L.M.T., author of Sisters of the Solstice Moon and Walking the Threads of Time (Books I and II of the When She Wakes series)

Yin Magic is exactly what the world needs right now. An invitation to slow down; the reasons why it’s essential we do that, as well as detailed guidance on how we do it. Engaging and fascinating, Yin Magic is an antidote to the world’s default stress state. Robinson is also genius at breaking down in-depth philosophies and practices such as Tao, Yoga, Buddhism, Ayurveda, and Chinese medicine in a way that makes them relatable and applicable in our lives today.
Tamara Pitelen, author, energy healer and yoga instructor

Womancraft Publishing is proud to celebrate not just the words, but the images of talented women too.

Creator of the cover image for Yin Magic, HANNAH DANSIE’S work draws from influences derived from iconoclasm, mythology, and the natural environment. Using familiar imagery and symbolism her images try to illustrate the connections that go unseen between ourselves and the natural world, while creating a sense of nostalgia for the dreamlike world of fairytales and folklore. All works are created in acrylic, ink, and gouache. Hannah was born and raised near the redwoods and beaches of Northern California. She studied fine art at Central Saint Martin’s University in London, England, where she graduated with a BFA Honors degree in 2004. She works and resides in Madison County, NC with her loving husband and daughter. Her work has been shown in Asheville at The Satellite Gallery, The Center for Visual Artists in Greensboro NC, The Red Truck Gallery in New Orleans LA, The Convent Philly in Philadelphia PA, and The Gristle Gallery in Brooklyn NY. You can find a large collection of her prints and originals on permanent display at The Horse and Hero in Asheville, NC.
