Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Women's spirituality, suggests educator Harris, is a "dance of the Spirit" consisting of seven steps: "Awakening, Discovering, Creating, Dwelling, Nourishing, Traditioning, and Transforming." Each correction: The publisher informs us that the ISBN for Hyam Macco by and Wolf Mankowitz's The Day God Laughed: Sayings, Fables and Entertainments of the Jewish Sages (LJ 6/1/89) is 0-86051-467-6. We regret the error. step has its own chapter here, with introductory guidance in "Centering" (being still) and concluding exercises to help readers connect with insights. Very much an interfaith book (Harris draws on Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Hinduism), this is also quite feminist in a gentle, nonmilitant way and should appeal to questing women with a slightly New Age bent.

Format: Paperback
A rich book, full of metaphor, deep meanings and affirmation of women's experience in the spiritual journey of life. This book is structured around seven steps of women's spirituality -- using a metaphor of the Dance of the Spirit. Harris describes five that are commonly attributed to spirituality: awakening, discovering, creating, dwelling and nourishing. She adds to those the steps of traditioning and transforming. It is a beautifully written book that speaks to women's real spiritual issues and experiences. It is an excellent resource to use in a small group, as each chapter begins with a centering exercise and ends with spiritual practices designed for that particular step. The book is not an "instruction book" in the spiritual life, but more like a "field guide" to the movements of the spiritual life. Definitely worth reading and would be richly rewarding when used in a class or small group experience.

The authoress moves the audience gracefully through spirituality just as one would move through a waltz. You move through the awakening, Dis-covering, Creating, Dwelling, Nourishing, Traditioning, and into Tranforming. What makes this book unique is that for each chapter one begins with a centering, texts and explanations, and then seven practices where the reader may put what the text explains into actual pratice.

This book affirmed the spirituality of women without pushing feminist thought onto the reader. I appreciated the fact that it uplifted ways to be in touch spiritually with our femininity without putting down traditions that we acquired through a mostly male view point.

Format: Paperback
This is a MUST read 1st book on women's spirituality. It takes us step by step in an ever-continuing process-a dance to discover the spirit within us as women. The role of God and the Holy Spirit are discussed in such a way that you feel the personal interconection within and outside of yourself.
Read this before reading any other women's book on spirituality.

I really like this book because it is wasy to understand and a good starting point for a person looking for a closer relationship with God and others. There are things that I don't necessarily agree with, but there is so much more that I do. It helps one to go forward by going "through" rather than "around". This is a very healthy approach to good spirituality.
