  •     Did not like the writer's "bubbly" writing style.
  •     A beautiful read! I loved it! It gives you a perfect taste of the lesser known paths for spirituality. Alice writes with humor and kindness. It is marvelous how open and honest she is about her experiences. It's just enough to give you an idea of where you'd like to go on your own spiritual journey. I have read all of Alice's books and she never disappoints. I highly recommend this book!
  •     Alice Grist’s “The High Heeled Guide to Enlightenment” is a lively, humor-filled tour of several non-mainstream spiritual approaches available in the modern world, including Buddhism, Wiccan, the Kaballah, Spiritualism and Shamanism. She joyfully juggles concepts such as soul mates, soul groups, coincidences, healing and reincarnation, while keeping us giggling with her charming, up-to-date wit. She has explored her topics deeply, and intersperses her own personal experiences with quotes from numerous sources to support her points of view; yet there is nothing dry or scholarly about this book. It’s thoroughly hip and a joy to read. Grist is aiming for modern women, and being one of them, she does an excellent job of presenting the ins and outs of the spiritual smorgasbord in such a way that readers will feel totally comfortable, understood and catered to. I totally enjoyed it. Highly recommended!~ Ram Das Batchelder, author of “Rising in Love: My Wild and Crazy Ride to Here and Now, with Amma, the Hugging Saint.”
  •     "The High-heeled Guide to Enlightenment is the must have book for feisty females who are looking to connect to something other than their Internet provider!"When I first read this sentence, my curiosity stood on full alert, and I couldn't wait to find out what this book was all about. I ordered the title on Amazon, and just a few days later I had the opportunity to find out for myself.In The High Heeled Guide to Enlightenment Alice Grist takes the reader on a journey across the board of alternate spiritualities. Rather than delving into one practice alone, the reader is skillfully led to widen spiritual boundaries through the exploration of different practices, ranging from Wicca to Buddhism, Shamanism, Kabbalah and Feng-Shui.Rather than being a main course dish, The High Heeled Guide to Enlightenment is a sampler platter offering something for everybody. In fact, while I am not a follower of many of the practices discussed, I found their descriptions fascinating and informative. I particularly enjoyed one chapter on coincidences and patterns, and once I finished reading it I found that some of the concepts were expressed in such a fresh, new voice that couldn't fail to charm anyone gifted with an open mind.The dynamic writing style and the unique approach employed by the author make this book a delightful read for anyone willing to expand one's knowledge and personal boundaries. For the spiritual beginner, it is a must-read guide necessary to learn more about, and differentiate, the different paths; for those already intimately connected with some of the paths, The High heeled Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment is a great reference book aimed at shedding light on some of the roads less traveled.A wonderful door opener for anyone ready to embark on their own journey toward enlightenment.
  •     One could easily be offended by this irreverent approach to enlightenment and its squint-eyed view of the various popular esoteric practices but how can you take offence with an opening gambit to the chapter on witchcraft: “When Daddy announces that he is a witch, what is a girl to do? ... Having lived through that very experience and without wanting to sound like a halfwit in a salacious women’s ‘real life’ magazine, I can proudly say that my Dad was a witch, and prior to that he was a vicar. Let me assure you it is not half as exciting as it sounds.”It’s rare that a book of this nature makes me laugh out loud but there’s so much self-depreciating humour and sly innuendo that - taking the name of the publisher in vain – it makes the soul rock with laughter. And yet ... there’s so much serious thought within the pages that you come away with lots of points to ponder. Alice Grist makes her point forcefully yet subtly: that enlightenment is not something you can purchase or apply, but it is something you can search for.Speaking as an experienced magical practitioner and mentor for nearly thirty years within the realms of traditional British Old Craft and ritual magic, I feel that there is a great deal of ‘old’ wisdom that would be extremely valuable for young adults interested in discovering more about the different spiritual paths without being at all preachy. And as Alice herself admits: “This book is purely 21st century, matter of fact and without the clutter of fairytales to pad it out. It is researched first hand by me, an utterly modern, glamorous rock chick type. This is religious education, amped up, stilettos on and leather gloves off ...”A self-confessed spiritual tourist, Alice Grist has experienced these various paths of enlightenment for herself and shares those experiences with the reader without appearing cynical or judgemental. “My spiritual path to enlightenment is of course an extremeversion. I have literally immersed myself head to foot in spiritual pursuits and taken on board a great number of theories and faiths that I previously knew little about ... My search for enlightenment has been an education, it has opened my eyes to an array of amazing beliefs and brought me through to a place where I feel contented and focused.”I can’t wait to read ‘The High Heeled Guide to Spiritual Living’.Melusine Draco: Principal of Coven of the Scales.
