BCV – Rites of Passage for Breast Cancer Victors

My mother had five daughters - four of us have had breast cancer. But we survived. And you can too. I'll show you how. My methods may be unorthodox, but when you learn to walk in your power - you'll know your power". -Raining Deer BCV is a thoughtful, sometimes humorous but candid account of my personal journey with breast cancer. It addresses what anyone who has been diagnosed with breast cancer initially thinks, which is one of three things: 1. "Oh my God" 2. "Am I going to die" 3. "How am I going to tell my loved ones" In BCV - Rites Of Passage For Breast Cancer Victors, I give you a roadmap for moving from breast cancer "victim" to victor by celebrating the divine nature of healing. My self-affirming rituals will help you learn to walk in your power, thus becoming more than a survivor but a victor over breast cancer by invoking divine healing principles that are deeply rooted in traditional spiritual practices. In BCV I take you through these steps: Finding out you have breast cancer; Exploring medical and alternative treatments; Having the treatment of your choosing; Regaining clarity and your sense of purpose through the divine healing principles of Prayer, Praise and Power. Once you walk this journey with me, you'll understand the purpose for this book. -Raining Deer "Raining Deer's rituals provide rites of passage into divinity". -Wallis Tinnie, Ph.D.

10 Tips to Avoid Breast Cancer (Unless it’s in the Genes)

According to the National Program of Cancer Registries, breast cancer is the most common form of cancer among women of “all racial and Hispanic origin populations.” As a leading cause of death among women, breast cancer is “first among Hispanic women” and “second among white, black, Asian/Pacific Islander and American Indian/Alaska Native women.” 

It is reported that upwards of 200,000 women in the United States develop breast cancer annually and 40,000 of them don’t survive. These are sobering statistics but rather than cause us to shy away from the subject altogether, it should be a wake-up call. 


T-Time: A Rites of Passage Manual for the Adolescent Female

"Punctuating your purpose" is what T-Time - A Rites of Passage Manual for the Adolescent Female is about. This initiation guide book for women who desire to give young females a powerful spiritually charged, emotionally invigorating welcome into womanhood was born from a fusion of Native American and West African customs. This marriage created a celebratory ritual which puts rites of passage initiates and participants on a spiritual journey, illuminating their souls for a lifetime. Historical references used in T-Time ("transition time") allow the reader-turned-facilitator to define the process young girls experience as they go from grade school to middle school -- from baptism to praise dance -- and from daddy's little angel to a budding princess. Generally occurring with little fanfare and no life-altering ritual, T-Time directs a series of cleansing rituals, meditations, vigorous prayer, laying on of hands, libation, charges and divination to boldly declare to their flowering girls, "You are now a woman!" The upward movement from "Girl" to "You-go-girl" to "Woman" should culminate in an intense but exhilarating T-Time ceremony not to be missed.


Rivers of My Mind (Poetry Collection)

Rivers of My Mind is Author Jeanette Stephens-El first foray into the literary world prior to her attaining her ancestral name Raining Deer. It’s esoteric and at times political poetry and prose gained the attention of an Essence Magazine editor. Her social commentary on the Iranian kidnapping of Americans during the Jimmy Carter administration was biting (although in later years Carter became one of her most admired U.S. Presidents).  Published early in the decade between 1980 and 1990, some of the “Rivers” collection makes reference to biblical figures whose relationships fascinated the ingénue author at the time, leading to some of her most insightful verses in “The Christ As Seen Through The Eyes Of Mary Magdalene,” and “The Hawk, The Owl, The Dove and the Peacock,” which was a capsulation of her views on a political activist of the day who figured prominently in quelling the violence in the aftermath of the 1980 Miami uprising following the police killing of black insurance salesman Arthur McDuffy.

Currently out of print, there have been calls from fans for a reprinting of Rivers of My Mind.
