Huffington Post/Colors of Gratitude “Gratitude Speaks: Recipes for a Sacred Life with Rivvy Neshama” (Dec 2015)
Miriam Ava: How do you define gratitude, and what are you grateful for?
Rivvy Neshama: Ah. Good questions. Gratitude, for me, is a path, a practice, a way to connect. But since I'm a storyteller, let me tell you a story….
REDBOOK Reads Interview with Rivvy Neshama, author of its January Book Club Pick.
Hannah Hickok: How did Recipes for a Sacred Life come to exist? Were there any little miracles, like all of those spoken about in the book?
Rivvy Neshama: Yes, there was a little miracle, and it came in the process of finding a publisher. Many editors loved it but were afraid to take a chance on an unknown author. Well, one day I was muttering about how this is taking way too long, and a friend said, “Rivvy, you said your stories came to you through divine inspiration. Well, go tell that Divine Spirit to get you a publisher!” So I did. I created a little shrine for the book where I lit a candle and asked, and two days later I had an offer from a small new press, appropriately called Divine Arts.
