As we near the end of 2020, all I can say is that this has been a turbulent year. Facing North had an unanticipated hiatus in September and October as several members of the Review Circle found themselves unable to put any time into reading and writing -- they were focused, as so many of us are, on just managing life.

Yet, here we are, just before the US Thanksgiving feast with a new batch of items reviewed. This month we were all about astrology and witchcraft, and offer:

Antiscia: Secrets in the Mirror
Little Book of Fixed Stars: Expanded Second Edition
Hermetica Triptycha: Volume I: The Mercury Elemental Year with Ephemerides, 1925-2050
Orishas, Goddesses, and Voodoo Queens: The Divine Feminine in the African Religious Traditions
Gemstone Guardians Cards and Your Soul Purpose

Last update gave us:

I am deeply grateful to the Review Circle, and to you, our loyal readers, for all you do to support this site. May you have many things and people to be grateful for, as we move deeper into the dark of the year.



Welcome to Facing North!

We are one of the largest collections of reviews of alternative spirituality oriented books, music, and other items of interest to our community. My wonderful team of reviewers and I have been writing reviews for many years now, and we love it.

Opened on October 31, 2006 with just over 200 reviews, Facing North is -- first and foremost -- a community resource. We ended that year with more than double our opening number of reviews (500+). Although we slowed our growth, 2007 ended with our database at more than 600 records, 2008 saw us at 900 and we edged over 1,000 by the end of 2009. In 2020, we have more than 3000 items reviewed in our files.

We accept previously published reviews, and articles and reviews from alternative practitioners. It is our goal to make Facing North the largest repository of alternative spirituality reviews on the Internet.

We are committed to creating a practical site with honest opinions that are fair, even when critical and welcome your feedback and suggestions to improve this site, one that everyone in our diverse community can use.

Once again: Welcome to Facing North!
