There is no secret formula to experiencing the sacred in our lives - it just takes practice and practicality.
Signs of love abound everywhere: walking in the woods, in a sacred building, or in a dusty refugee camp. When we allow ourselves to embrace both ordinary and extraordinary experiences, we can feel the divine anywhere.
Part poetry, part rant, part rumination on her mother’s wit and wisdom, Becca weaves an invitation to create something from nothing.
Find Your Way
Through these practices, you are invited to look again at ancient insights and well-worn words with wisdom from the streets and truth from stories.
We want this book to be a gift to you, whether you are reading it from an ivory tower or under the top bunk in a cell. We want it to carry you through your everyday life, to broaden its joys, lessen its sorrows, and console you beyond grief.
Whether written from the hardships of deep wounds, grief, or longing for justice, life can overflow with hope. Love Heals contains principles that have transformed lives.

The Art of Healing & Truth Telling
Becca Stevens calls herself a "snake oil seller": She takes natural oils, mixes them with a good story, sells them in an open market and believes they help to heal the world. The book weaves together the beginnings of Thistle Farms with individual stories from Becca's own journey as well as 20 women in the community.
In Snake Oil, Becca tells how the women she began helping fifteen years ago have been the biggest source of her own healing from sexual abuse and her father's death as a child. Wise and reflective, Snake Oil offers an empowering narrative as well as a selection of recipes for healing remedies that readers can make themselves.
