Editorial Reviews

Review

Welcome the new generation of Goddess culture makers!  All that was taken away from women, our Heras, their names and deeds, the inventors of poems and prose, rituals and dances,we could still not fill the  the gaping empty  space if we published a million more books like this. But it is something. This work  will be seeding the generations after us to continue the research, the relentless reclaiming, the constant agitation, to re create sisterhood. -- Z Budapest, Spiritual Elder of the Dianic Tradition and author of 13 books about the Goddess and her lost mythology, lore, culture.

There are wise words here for those of us who have been burned, and soaring words for those who aspire to step into the title of "Priestess." This book is a balm for those of us who have held positions of power and then still had to carry out the garbage, and find a way to navigate through the deep projections of others. -- Ellen Evert Hopman, Herbalist and Druid Priestess, author of the "Priestess of the Forest" trilogy of Celtic novels and other volumes.

From the Inside Flap

What is a priestess? Is she a ritualist? A leader? A shaman? A role model? A coach? A soothsayer? A sybil? Or is she all of these, or some of these, or none of these? Stepping in to Ourselves: An Anthology of Writings on Priestesses is a vibrant tapestry of voices illuminating the roles and perspectives of priestesses in the ancient and modern worlds and weaving them together to create the beautiful fabric of women's sacred service. The personal essays, academic articles, poetry, rituals, and tools in this book will speak to your heart, inspiring you to step into your own spiritual authority.

Format: Paperback
I was an extremely religious child. I knew exactly what I wanted to be when I grew up--a priest. I would wear lacy vestments in season-matched colors and convert entire villages of pagans, whatever they were. I knew Jesus would certainly hear my prayers and change the rules of the Catholic Church in time for my ordination.

Guess what? No luck. Here we are in the 21st century and the Catholic Church, even with its populist new leader, Pope Francs, still doesn't allow women to be priests. It's not an exaggeration to say that my realization I would never get to be a priest inspired my life-long feminism.

I didn't know about being a priestess. Heck, I'd barely heard the word until I changed careers from TV production to archaeology, where I discovered the work of Lithuanian-American archaeologist Marija Gimbutas (1921-1994). Her controversial theories (The Civilization of the Goddess and others) about a woman-centric goddess culture in "Old Europe" revolutionized the study of ancient history and helped to inspire the modern Goddess movement.

Not until I moved from Los Angeles to Asheville did I meet a real-live priestess, however. Now I am happy to say that I know quite a few. In fact, Asheville is a haven for priestesses.

I just read a wonderful book that I wish had been available to me decades ago. I want to cheer about it in the hopes that all other women with a calling to priestess might also read it.

Stepping Into Ourselves is An Anthology of Writings on Priestesses ([...]. It includes 80 beautifully written poems and prose pieces, ranging from personal memoirs to academic treatises to practical tips (such as rituals and spiritual tools) on how to priestess. The scope of the book is truly astounding.
