I am the author of 12 non-fiction books for women, several of which have been Amazon #1 best sellers in multiple categories. “Life-changing” is the word that has been applied to my books again and again by my readers around the world. For that I am honoured and grateful.

I write from the first-person perspective of the traveller and from the timeless dimensions of the soul, whilst fully grounding my words in a sound foundation of the history of ideas, my undergraduate subject and life-long passion. I call this Living Philosophy.

My books are rooted in the wisdom of many voices, especially female, from across disciplines and cultures. Central to each of my books are the experiences of other women: a living, breathing circle of women who are living the material that I am writing about.

Each of my books is like a string of prayer beads, threaded with longings, pain, wisdom, poetry and stories of a hundred voices. They are written as I navigate new terrain in my life, as an offering to myself and all those who might need a companion on a path that is not well-illuminated by our culture.

Each is less a book of answers than a book of questions: a creative weaving of evidence and ideas into the articulation of a dream of how things could be better. They are unapologetically rooted in my own embodied reality and intuitions.

My writing is not for everyone.

But it may be for you.

The creative, the dreamer, the edgewalker, the highly sensitive, the neurodivergent, the magic maker, the questioner…

I write for those of us who have always felt alone, who have chosen the path less-travelled, who for whatever reason do not feel we belong to the world at large. For those who travel by the light of the moon, who have found it necessary to hide in the shadows, to mask our weirdness, to bite our tongues and swallow our truth, to make ourselves smaller, to dim our glow. Who have never quite fit…and yet longed to. Who after years of denying our strange gifts are finally, finally owning them, are daring to step out and be seen as we are, without apology… at last, at last.

You are not alone. There is a whole community of us. Growing by the hour. Thinking, writing, creating, sharing…

Welcome home!

“I know why I love you and your books: it’s because you’re really authentic. You share with us your reality and your visions honestly, without trying to embellish it. You share what you feel, what your journey is without positioning yourself as a professional who knows better. You share how sometimes you have to battle with yourself to overcome what is here. You share how you struggle at every moment of your road and that it’s okay to live that. You show us that it’s possible to give birth to our inner truth, our inner wisdom, our mission in life and that we, too, we can birth that wherever we are. You show us that our uniqueness is valuable and needed and that we can reconquer that. You show us the courage needed, the courage of vulnerability, the courage to trust, to trust enough to dare diving into the unknown. The courage to have enough faith to stop wanting controlling things and let who you are, your body to be a channel through which what needs to be said can be said… Reading Burning Woman was a really huge and deep experience for me.” Stephanie R

Crow Moon: reclaiming the wisdom of the dark woods

#1 Amazon bestseller

Publisher: Womancraft Publishing

“Suddenly the sky overhead is alive. From east and southeast, west and northwest, large black birds fly, travelling in their groups of hundreds, swirling, cawing, interweaving, dancing a greeting in the air. The sky is thick black feathered. We watch in awe as they combine and dissipate above our heads, as though we are lying on the bottom of the ocean, looking up at the surface world. Then, without signal or warning, they circle the heart of the wood and land in hidden roosts. Silence falls once more.”

After months of feeling lost and burned out, a chance encounter with crows begins an adventure in the dark woods – inner and outer – leading to a strange and powerful initiation.

Three-time Nautilus award-winning author Lucy H. Pearce’s previous best-selling book Burning Woman was an initiation of fire and She of the Sea an initiation of water, Crow Moon is an initiation of earth and air, a way back to the heart of ourselves through wild revelation.

Strikingly illustrated by the author, with contributions from over 30 women – artists, healers, authors – midlife women who have also been called by the strange magic of crows at decisive moments in their lives.

Enter the dark woods. Follow the crow, the moon and the mushroom on a journey of transformation and remembering.

Powerful, stunning, and transformative writing.

Mary Lunnen, author of six books including Your Compass Rose Speaks

Like breadcrumbs along the path, Lucy Pearce sprinkles stories, images, and insights about the crow as she leads us deeper into the dark woods of our imagination in search of our authentic selves. This is a book to meditate on and nest in, often. It is filled with the everyday magic of life.

Mary Reynolds Thompson, author of Reclaiming the Wild Soul

She of the Sea

#1 Amazon Bestseller

Publisher: Womancraft Publishing

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 colour 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.

Dreamlike, meditative, poetic, She of the Sea is a love song. To the ocean. To becoming. To magic. To freedom.

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, the Pacific and the Atlantic.

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.
Lyn Thurman, author of The Inner Goddess Revolution

Flora Bowley

As a woman artist and writing my life is devoted to the practice and study of creativity and how it works. So I love seeing the way that Lucy has uplifted creation, with both mystical and practical tools for women to access the power of creation. Every bone in our body is a creative bone, but sometimes we can forget that. Her work celebrates the access to the prowess possible for us when we create!
Shiloh Sophia McCloud,  Founder of Intentional Creativity®

Creatrix is soulful medicine that speaks empowering encouragement to women artists, writers, healers and energy workers of these specific times. Lucy weaves truth, inquiry and much needed practical guidance into the timeless and potent experience of saying YES to the creative Work that calls us… in all its mysterious, dynamic ways.

Nautilus Silver Award Winner

Medicine Woman

Publisher: Womancraft Publishing

ISBN: 978-1-910559-338 

Medicine Woman is the eagerly-awaited sister book to Nautilus Silver-Award-Winning Burning Woman from Amazon bestselling author, Lucy H. Pearce.

This audacious questioning of the current medical system’s ability to deal with the modern epidemic of chronic illness, combines a raw personal memoir of sickness and healing, woven through with voices of dozens of other long-term sick women of the world and a feminine cultural critique that digs deep into the roots of patriarchal medicine. Pearce takes us from its ancient Greek roots, through the influences of the Enlightenment and Christianity, the wholesale destruction of the wise woman tradition and Western colonial destruction of native medicines to the current technocratic, capitalist model of medicine.

Medicine Woman asks the uncomfortable questions that our culture refuses to face:

  • Why chronic illness, mental health issues, medical prescriptions and costs are rising exponentially.
  • Why women are the major sufferers of the modern epidemic of auto-immune conditions.
  • Why women are twice as likely to be medicated for depression.
  • Why women tend to be taken less seriously by medical professionals.

Medicine Woman voices a deep yearning for a broader vision of what it means to be human than our current paradigm allows for, calling on an ancient archetype of healing, Medicine Woman, to re-vision how we can navigate sickness and harness its transformational powers in order to heal.

Packed with dozens of healing arts exercises and hundreds of medicine questions to help integrate body and mind in the healing process. Like Burning Woman, this book promises initiation by transmission, reconnecting us directly with the soul of healing.

“Lucy Pearce is a luminous voice in global change – a voice that calls out for a return to balance of the feminine and masculine energies to heal the very world all beings depend upon to continue existing – preferably thriving. Medicine Woman is needed wake up words in a world gone numb.” Paula Youmell, RN, Wise Woman Nurse®, author Hands on Health and Weaving Healing Wisdom

“In Medicine Woman, Lucy H. Pearce continues her invaluable work of reawakening the Sacred Feminine and connecting women to their inherent wisdom. Pulling back the curtain on the male-dominated medical model of the current era, Pearce reveals the systematic and intentional suppression of feminine knowledge and intuition, and in doing so invites modern women to reclaim their own healing journey. The Medicine Woman archetype is needed in our culture now more than ever as women awaken to the healing power and potential that lies within each of us.” Amy Bammel Wilding, author, Wild & Wise: Sacred Feminine Meditations for Women’s Circles and Personal Awakening

Burning Woman

Nautilus Silver Award Winner

#1 Bestseller on Amazon!

Publisher: Womancraft Publishing

ISBN:  978-1910559161

Burning Woman is a breath-taking and controversial woman’s journey through history—personal and cultural—on a quest to find and free her own power. Uncompromising and all encompassing, Pearce uncovers the archetype of the Burning Women of days gone by—Joan of Arc and the witch trials, through to the way women are burned today in cyber bullying, acid attacks, shaming and burnout, fearlessly examining the roots of Feminine power—what it is, how it has been controlled, and why it needs to be unleashed on the world during our modern Burning Times.

Burning Woman explores:

  • Burning from within: a woman’s power — how to build it, engage it and not be destroyed by it.
  • Burning from without: the role of shame, and honour in the time-worn ways the dominant culture uses fire to control the Feminine.
  • The darkness: overcoming our fear of the dark, and discovering its importance in cultivating power.

This incendiary text was written for women who burn with passion, have been burned with shame, and who at another time, in another place, would have been burned at the stake.

With contributions from leading burning women of our era: Isabel Abbott, ALisa Starkweather, Shiloh Sophia McCloud, Molly Remer, Julie Daley, Bethany Webster,  . . .

Filled with burning questions to inflame the Burning Woman within—be warned—this book could change your life.

“Lucy H. Pearce’s Burning Woman carries the torch of the sacred Feminine into the dark corners of women’s unexpressed and unfulfilled desire and power. She dares us to burn down that which does not serve life, to use our fire to transform the world.” Oriah “Mountain Dreamer” House, bestselling author The Invitation; The Dance; What We Ache For

Lucy Pearce has given voice to what a generation of women are feeling and burning to express.I celebrate this book and celebrate and acknowledge Lucy Pearce as a wise, wild and courageous woman who has written a very important book of our time. A must-read for all women! A life-changing book that fills the reader with a burning passion and desire for change!” Glennie Kindred, author and illustrator of 11 books on celebrating the Earth and ourselves.

“Burning Woman is a passionate call to wake up both to our present reality and to entrance ourselves to the remembrance of our power. Lucy’s prose is poetic, raw and dances on the edge of outrageous – where outrageous means to defy what we have been taught and have accepted to our detriment. I am proud to call myself a burning woman…” Jane Meredith, author of Journey to the Dark Goddess and Circle of Eight:Creating Magic for Your Place on Earth

I would like to share with you two books and a writer who is really making a difference. One of her books changed my life and upon starting the second a few days ago I can see this one doing the same.

The first one is Burning Woman by Lucy H. Pearce
This book teaches us not only the effect the patriarchy has had on us as women but the way it effects us all. It identifies areas we have been taught to be insecure and to live to “good girl” standards through societal conditioning. It is a must read for any individual looking to open their eyes to the effects of patriarchy, capitalism and consumerism.

This book changed my life and made so much of my trauma, trauma responses and anxiety make sense. I am forever greatful to Lucy for putting herself out there and writing it.

The second is Medicine Woman, Burning woman’s twin sister. This book gives a take on how the world we live in is making us sick. If your someone who struggles with chronic illness, has struggles with Dr’s, diagnosis, changes in medication, mental health issues, fatigue, digestive issues and the list very much goes on this book is for you. This book gives an explanation on how YOU are not the problem but it is very much the world we live in and the way we are forced to live.

It’s only by educating ourselves and eachother will we be able to make any changes. These issues affect every single one of us regardless of gender and it is hugely important we work together to make the changes we need. Together, we are stronger than the systems that are making us sick.” Zara
