Dreamlike, meditative, and poetic, She of the Sea is a love song. To the ocean. To becoming. To magic. To freedom. A lyrical exploration of the call of the sea and the depth of our connection to it.

This is the tenth book from bestselling author of Burning Woman, Medicine Woman, Moon Time and Creatrix, Lucy H. Pearce.

She of the Sea is a lyrical exploration of the call of the sea and the depth of our connection to it, rooted in the author’s personal experience living on the coast of the Celtic Sea in Ireland.

This book spans from coastal plants to the color blue, pebbles to prayer, via shapeshifting and suicidal ideation, erosion and immersion, cold water swimming and water birth, seaweed and cyanotypes, from Japanese freedivers and Celtic sea goddesses, selkies to surfing, and mermaids to Mary.

She of the Sea is a strange and wonderful deep dive into the inner sea and the Feminine, exploring where the real and the magical, the salty and the sacred meet, within and without, and what implications this has for us as both individuals and a species in these tumultuous times.

With contributions from thirty sea-loving artists, musicians, cold water swimmers, mothers, environmental educators, witches, mermaids, priestesses, and writers from around the world who share their love for the stretch of sea they call home, from the Irish Sea to the Caribbean, via the Mediterranean and the North Sea, to the Pacific and the Atlantic.

Lucy H. Pearce is the author of life-changing nonfiction books, including Nautilus Award winners Medicine Woman, Burning Woman, and Creatrix: she who makes. Her writing focuses on women’s healing through archetypal psychology, embodiment, historical awareness, and creativity.

An award winning graduate in history of ideas with English literature from Kingston University and a PGCE from Cambridge University, Lucy lives in Cork, Ireland.

"This book will transform and reinvigorate your relationship with the sea. A delicious sea-scrap book, Pearce weaves myths and science into an enveloping net, and empowers the reader to return to the sea, informed and enchanted."
—Alice Tarbuck, author of A Spell in the Wild

"She of the Sea is a devotion to the sacred depths and breadths of the sea. If you have ever felt or heard the call to dip your toes in the salty liminal space between the ocean and earth, you'll find this book a beautiful reminder of all that you can find there. It's part personal journey of Lucy's deep connection to the sea and part guide – with a focus on the feminine – to explore the many facets of Her divinity, lore, attributes, activities and transformation. As someone who also feels the call of the sea, Lucy's book feeds my soul with the spirit of the sea through poetry, journal reflections and the words woven with the very essence of the deep, blue Divine."
—Lyn Thurman, author of The Inner Goddess Revolution

"She of the Sea is a treasure trove of watery reflection. When we write about our watery experiences, like our dreams they can disappear on waking and in stepping back into ordinary reality. She of the Sea allows you to linger, to immerse yourself fully, to wander the shoreline of your experience, knowing you have arrived home."
—Louise Tarrier, author of The Way of the Sea Priestess

"A book of magic and thought that takes the reader on a sensory journey… From its opening page this book will fill your soul with the desire to return to She of the Sea no matter how near or far She may be."
