This is important for anyone interested in spirituality, religion, or history. If you lived through the 1960s it will bring back wonderful memories, if you are too young for that it will give you a glimpse of how much people can change life for the better. An exhilarating read and amazing story.

What a wonderful book about some of the first leaders of the women's spirituality movement! The essayists were requested to write about how they became involved in the women's spirituality movement, the work that they have done in the movement, and to discuss the projects they are currently working on. Some of the essays follow this pattern without a lot of personal anecdotes, and some essays delve into the writer's beliefs and philosophy (my favorite of these was by Kathy Jones, foundress of the Goddess Temple in Glastonbury--she has a beautiful vision for the future). The essays come from a wide range of women from those who have spent their lives working as scholars at major universities to dancers, writers, documentary-makers, musicians, and ritualists. It was fascinating to see how each woman discovered her path and the ways that it changed and evolved over time. The "Notes" sections alone at the end of each essay are worth the price of the book as they have already directed me to several films on women's spirituality, a series of Goddess in Art talks produced in the 80s-90s and now available on YouTube, and a list of books to read that will keep me busy for many years. You could create your own self-study course in Women's Spirituality from the works referenced in the essays and conveniently listed in the Notes!

As a younger feminist with an interest in Goddess spirituality this book is a treasure-trove and an inspiration, and I especially recommend it to younger women so that we can see where we have come from and to help us develop a vision for the future.

An important, ground-breaking collection filled with the fascinating life stories of some of the women who helped create the Women's Spirituality Movement in the late sixties and early seventies.
