The Mistress of Longing is…
An invitation to listen and trust the deep feminine that longs to be heard.
A love letter from, and for, devotion.
A prescription for a passionate and creative life.
A sacred reclamation.
A liberation of desire.
A hymn to kindness.
The voice of a modern mystic.
The Mistress of Longing is a mystic’s portal into a sumptuous dimension of Life we can all access. It is our sacred invitation to embrace, embody and dance with our longing.
The Mistress of Longing not only provides permission for all our longings and desires but holds them as the sacred doorway to our belonging. I found myself taking it in like manna from heaven. It’s truly a pure, potent and powerful transmission of Divine Truth. I experienced cascades of sensation in my body as my heart and soul were being awakened by the Mistress of Longing. I wanted to devour the book whole but recognized the need to slow down and pace myself to fully receive and metabolize it’s wisdom.
This book is a welcome new resource for me. I will to return to it again and again - in part or whole - for deep nourishment, guidance and support.

Mistress of Longing is a creative breath of fresh air. It inspires me to listen to my inner stirrings, and reminds me that my wildest, most beautiful visions – along with the next steps to bring them to fruition – are within me, just waiting to be discovered, if I carve out the time and space to listen.

Wendy Havlir Cherry will entice you and invite you to enter into ‘the forest of awakening’ that lies inside your heart. ‘It is lush and green and wooded with wildness.’ In The Mistress of Longing, Wendy opens a world we rarely see expressed – the world of the sensuous, creative, succulent feminine.
It can be hard to put words to the feminine principle. As mystery herself, She defies definition. Wendy, though, writes from the heart, truly from this forest of awakening. Allow yourself to be enticed into the world of She.
