Amazon UK (August 2015): "Never patronising and always self-empowering I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable, guiding and practical approach to a subject that so often can be dry and uninspiring. I thoroughly recommend it to anyone seeking to understand the deeper mysteries of life and how we can connect to them on a personal or individual level."
Facing North (July 2015): "In her book The Great Work, Tiffany Lazic epitomizes holistic by providing a really neat, integrated system for all-around healing that is based on the Wheel of the Year."
Goodreads (May 2015): "The Great Work by Tiffany Lazic is indeed a "great work." This book is a year-long magical working that has the potential to change your life."
Witch, Wine & Words (March 2015): "To have a book, now, that takes the spiritual and natural balance of the Wheel of the Year, and combines it with the Eastern traditions, plus the author’s background in Psychotherapy… at minimum, this book is a revolutionary approach using spirituality and psychotherapy to treat a myriad of psychological roadblocks for all kinds of people."
Publishers Weekly (March 2015): "Intended to help readers deeply explore the spokes of the Wheel of the Year, a sacred system based on seasonal festivals from around the world, Lazic’s guide to spiritual transformation functions more like an axle, propelling the wheel forward."
Goodreads (Feb 2015): "This was really quite the fascinating book! I love how it blended mythology, spirituality, and psychology with the Celtic year of the wheel calender, cleverly done."
