Most of us were raised not to talk at dinner about sex. Or religion. Well, what if they both got dipped in dark chocolate and landed in the same glass of wine... taboo! Why did we divorce these two essential aspects of our human experience? What happens when we free ourselves from the consensual and launch a life that is truly whole?
In Dancing With Fire: Two Women Who Fall Out of the Ordinary, we're invited to embrace being fully alive - carried into the flames and onto the sea - toward a visceral transformation. Carrie and Anne could be your next door neighbours or your office coworkers. But in this sexy, mystical novel they open a door for every woman to expand their ideas of what's possible. This is a story for our age - a voyage of healing, hope and humanity. Is this the ship you've been waiting for?
Join Carrie and Anne, two unrelated women on separate, yet mysteriously connected journeys. Anne just wants to be left alone to suffer, while Carrie seeks increasingly dangerous liaisons. Both follow sparks of intuition, encountering metaphysical and very physical connections that lead them to discover deeper truths about who they are. They learn that they play a vital role in each othersʼ lives, and expand their ideas of what is possible. This novel, full of suspense, sex, and other juicy bits, serves as a bridge between ordinary reality and a more wise, magical, and hopeful reality. Run a bath, grab some wine, and enjoy the trip. You may be inspired to seek out your own sexy metamorphosis!

Denene Derksen has been a lover of reading since preschool. She is a practicing shaman, speaker, and teacher, with a background in drama instruction and wholistic health. Writing this book was a wonderful, alchemical process for Denene, magically tying together much of what she has learned since “falling out of the ordinary” herself in 2001. Her curiosity about the true cause of disease, and her search for fulfillment and passion in life led her to study Shamanism. Traveling to Peru, practicing and teaching about reciprocity, and wine with chocolate are a few of Deneneʼs favourite passions.
