Laurel Ann Reinhardt has been interested in alternative spirituality since her childhood. Her spiritual path has included: Christian Science, Congregational, Celtic/Druidic, the works of Seth/Jane Roberts, Parmahansa Yogananda, Jewish/Christian mysticism, and most recently the Diamond Path work of A.H. Almaas. Though some people may say that such spiritual eclecticism does not allow one to go deeply enough into any tradition, Laurel feels that a varied path is the way in which we will realize that all paths are really one.
Laurel has two goddess-daughters; one aged twenty-one and one aged four. Seasons of Magic: A Girl's Journey grew out of experiences with her oldest goddess-daughter, and her fifteen years of participation in a women's cross-quarter day celebration group, of which she is a founding member.
Laurel has a Ph.D. in psychology and is a practicing psychologist and writer. In her work as a psychologist, she uses dreamwork and ritual to help people listen deeply to themselves in order to reconnect with their soul dreams, those yearnings that give meaning and purpose to life. She also writes about the changing face of psychology and its relevance for today's world.
