Passionate Internet Voices Talk Radio, Inc.
January 10, 2009
For Immediate Release
Ann Arbor, MI
Karen Tate Joins CBS/AOL
PIVTR A league of nations among other Internet talk radio stations; Voices of the People – United We Roar! ™ Home of the Brave – The Veterans!
Karen Tate host of PIVTR’s “Voices of the Sacred Feminine” Wednesday’s 9:00 to 9:30 p.m. has been offered air time by CBS/AOL radio. “Earths Sacred Places” will discuss travels on journeys to sacred places across the globe as well as mortal attempts to discover the Divine within each of us. “Earths Sacred Places” date and time have not been announced yet, but will be coming soon.
Karen Tate’s newest book, “Walking an Ancient Path: Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth”, was a finalist in the National USA Best Books of 2008 in the general spirituality category. It has been described as an important  spiritual-socio-political look at integrating Sacred Feminine ideals within one's life.  It discusses spiritual journeys, ritual, the politics of spirituality and gives many tools to embrace Goddess as either deity, ideal or archetype.
Be sure to check out her first book “Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations”.  While the book covers sacred places the world over, readers can also use the book to plan their own pilgrimage to sacred sites of Goddess along the California coast or in the western United States.
Both books were endorsed by the Joseph Campbell Foundation.

PIVTR - is catching the attention of the world.


Gas has gotten a bit less expensive.   You won't have the hassle of airport security or airline baggage fees unless you're embarking on the sacred journey from outside California or nearby states.  You certainly won't get gauged when you exchange your hard earned dollars for euros. And you don't have to worry about speaking a different language, train schedules or getting a passport.   Sacred travel couldn't be easier!
I'll bet you didn't know with my first book, Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations, you could make your own pilgrimage to Goddess sites on both the West Coast in Caliornia, or the western United States.  Now of course I can't give away all the destinations, but if California, Nevada, New Mexico and Arizona are places you might like to visit on a sacred journey to honor Goddess, you'll want to have my book as your reference.  It tells you about the Goddesses of these sites and how to get there.  And don't forget, Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations was endorsed by the Joseph Campbell Foundation.
You can purchase the book from local bookstores, from on-line sellers like Amazon, or directly from me if you'd like a personally signed copy.  Just email me and before you know it, you'll have all the information you need for your own personal pilgrimage for yourself, your group, or your family.  Check out my website for more information about this book, or my second Walking An Ancient Path: Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth, which was a finalist in the National USA Best Books of 2008 Awards.
Walking An Ancient Path: Rebirthing Goddess on Planet Earth, the second book of author, Karen Tate, (published by O Books) was just named a finalist in the National Best Books of 2008 Awards - in the general spirituality category. This new book, as well as her first, Sacred Places of Goddess: 108 Destinations, published by CCC Publishing, have both been endorsed by the Joseph Campbell Foundation. Sacred Places of Goddess is being used across the country in college curriculums and is a must for any reference library or traveler.  For more info, go to
