Set against the backdrop of Ruby Warrington's own transformative path from her dream job as an influential fashion journalist to creating The Numinous, the high-style online magazine about spirituality for modern women, Material Girl, Mystical World invites listeners on a colorful journey to discover their own path to personal enlightenment in every area of life, from love, sex, and relationships, to fashion, beauty, health, and wellness.

From how to survive and thrive at Burning Man to creating rituals that celebrate the Divine Feminine to exploring the shaman in you, Material Girl, Mystical World brings together the best of the Now Age. Merging style and soul, beauty and bliss, and karma and cool, Warrington shows us that it is within our power, right now, to create a life that is both meaningful and fabulous - while also contributing to a major shift in global consciousness.

So awesome!

I’m going to give this book to my niece when she turns 13 in a couple years. I think this is a very important book for young people to read, but I’m 37 and benefitted greatly and enjoyed every minute.

Advertisement Book

What disappointed you about Material Girl, Mystical World?

The book appears to be as an advertisement for various spiritual gurus.

What could Ruby Warrington have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Less talking about her gurus and more about her REAL perception. Lots of material is paraphrased from other books.

What about Ruby Warrington’s performance did you like?

Her narration is fabulous, thus is 5-stars!

What character would you cut from Material Girl, Mystical World?

Half of it.

Very Basic, kinda irritating

A very basic intro to Spirituality. It is a pastiche of a little bit of everything with no direction. In fact the whole book felt like an intro to the aestethic of spirituality rather than real and honest paths to experiences.

Ruby is not a necessarily inspiring teacher. I don't doubt that her techniques work for her and that she is dedicated to her path. However, it all came off as her trying hard to be contrarian even within the spiritualist community. Not to mention it was not inspiring at all to hear about how afraid she is of new experiences.

If you want an intro to the basics of stereotypical spirituality including very surface level touches onto crystals, yoga, plant medicine, pilgrimages, etc then you may find this book to be useful. However, Ruby did not connect with me one iota and if you consider yourself to have any experience on the subject, i would say move on to Gabrielle Bernstein, Eckart Tolle, Mel Wells, Kyle Gray, etc

Not What I was Expecting!!

If you could sum up Material Girl, Mystical World in three words, what would they be?

INCITEFUL. INSPIRING. NECESSARY. As someone who follows Ruby on Instagram and checks her website regularly, I was super excited to get my hands -- in this case, ears -- on this book. This was my first time getting an audio book, and so far, I like the content, but I don't think it was what I was expecting. It is definitely a "guide" and goes into depth about everything, so for that reason, it's a little hard to take in via audio because there's so much information. Probably best in book form so you can really read over and process what she's saying. I look forward to finishing this book, but in the meantime, I'll definitely need to have my notepad ready because there is so much to take in, which is a good thing! Oh! And her narration is excellent!

It was okay

This was okay, I did not finish and feel like I had wasted my time, but also didn't leave me feeling really wowed or like I had lots of new insights. I enjoyed and got more out of Sober Curious, Ruby's other work, but this was more reading about one person's experiences trying lots of different new age experiences and her reactions. Grazing lots of topics without going terribly deep into any one. I think because many of the topics she's covering here I already have read or experienced a great deal on there wasn't as much for me here but could be helpful or interesting to those looking for another person's perspective on a wide range of practices.

Loved it!

This my first time listening to an audio book and I really enjoyed it! If you're interested in this book at all, go for it. I almost want to buy a hard copy just to have!

GoRUBY! YOU NAILED IT!

REALTALK-- This book is awesome. It's one to keep near your journals, etiquette books, and your I Ching translations. She is balanced, funny, humble and refreshingly feisty. I adore Chelsea Handler, Cynthia Heimel and Kelly Cutrone because their command of language is so sharp and styllized and theres an NYC unapologetic tone that I crave. Too often women phrase statement with a questioning intonation, and this gets on my last nerve at times. That's why I love the above authors and now Ruby. These women tell it like it is. Why cower? They say what they mean and it's so well said , it brings a smile. This is a book full of applicable, sage advice from an edgy stylish, well informed writer. It's packed insights from some one in tune with the world around them. Her suggestions come from hard-earned experience. She shares her mistakes. She dares to put herself out there. She's like that friend you wish you had in every city. That female confidant you trust to no end, because they've been there and want only the best for you. I don't consider it easy to translate such complex & esoteric ideas into layman's terms without sounding a little loopy, preachy, or hipster-elite. Many writers don't seem at all sane when they go to write about these topics. They take new age to levels that are hard to relate to. It's rare to find enthusiasts who maintain a sane tone while still VERY in touch with a lot of what's out there in spiritual circles. (It's a thin line.) Ruby nailed it with finesse. I found this charming , funny , and easy to get into. I loved it from beginning to end. It's hard not to gush. In the end I was left with a Sisterhood -is -Global sentiment. She quoted a Yogi in one part:
" ...Travel light, live light, spread light, be the light ..."
Ruby, you are being the light.
Keep Shining!

It shouldn’t be an audible

It’s a manual more I think and it feels like there’s too much missing to be an audible. I didn’t bother finishing because I didn’t know what was being spoken about. But the actual book if interested

And so the journey begins...

This book literally changed my life. Having gone sober myself recently, I was looking for good books and memoirs by and about cool sober people. For Gaia knows what reason, this one did NOT come up!! However I was at this vegan lunch spot that I dig a couple months ago and saw this book for sale there. I liked the colour of the cover lol, and the name was intriguing. I didn’t purchase it however, or even open it up. Yet, its existence remained tucked up in my head for whatever reason.

Fast forward to the beginning of this week: I needed a new book to listen to and this title popped into my mind. I downloaded it immediately and literally could. not. stop. listening!!! Everything Ruby has to say is phenomenal. Her message is deeply meaningful whilst remaining accessible.

I’m definitely going back to that vegan spot and buying the book now, so that I can read it again (physically this time) and take notes!! A++++. This book has totally changed my life, and has reaffirmed my commitment to my sobriety. Cool sober women totally DO exist.

A Must For Newbies

What did you love best about Material Girl, Mystical World?

The author was open and honest about her journey

What did you like best about this story?

My favorite topic was about tarot

Have you listened to any of Ruby Warrington’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

no

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

n/a

Any additional comments?

I kinda see and agree what the other comments meant regarding her name dropping a lot. Imagine being in a lecture and the professor continuously takes time from the lecture to tell a story about a famous person they've worked with. Other than this great Gems are being dropped. I would definitely recommend to anyone who's started their spiritual journey.
