Rivvy Neshama - Recipes for a Sacred Life


When Rivvy Neshama was twenty-two and about to get married, her mother gave her a book of handwritten recipes that taught her how to make a good roast -- but not much else. And no one gave her the recipe to make a good marriage or a good life. That took years of searching on a path with many turns.

Now, like a handwritten recipe book, Recipes for a Sacred Life: True Stories and a Few Miracles ($16.95) is passing on the most meaningful and inspiring stories from the author's life. From birth to death and in between; from dancing to forgiveness to sacred sex; and from a rabbi from Vienna to Irish Rita from the Bronx, they feature people and experiences that taught the author how to live a good life -- one touched with sacredness. And, as it turned out, the best recipes came from her mom. Written with heart and humor and steeped in ancient wisdom, these short, true tales reveal how ordinary encounters -- with friends, nature, lovers, and strangers -- can suddenly connect us with the sacred, adding love, joy, and purpose to our lives.

Rivvy Neshama is a writer, editor, and community organizer whose spiritual path draws from many sources. Along the way, she earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Philosophy from Bryn Mawr College and Master’s Degrees in Comparative Literature (UC Berkeley), Social Work (Hunter College), and Education (Bank Street College). A lifelong writer, Rivvy was first published in Story Magazine’s Best College Writing anthology, and has since written for many national publications, including Ms., Glamour, and the New York Times. She is the author of the children’s book Nat Turner and the Virginia Slave Revolt.
