Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Rather than codifying a religion exclusively for women, the authors address a range of contemporary issues that are informed by spirituality, our attitudes toward life on Earth. The values and perceptions presented in this essay collection constitute a holistic paradigm, a dynamic model for the postpatriarchal era.

This is a comprehensive, accessible collection of articles on a range of aspects of women's spirituality. I have had it for years, keep dipping back into it regularly for inspiration and stimulation. It is a fabulous book.

Format: Paperback
Charlene Spretnak (born 1946) is an author, activist, academic and feminist who teaches in the philosophy and religion department at the California Institute of Integral Studies. She was a co-founder of the Green Party in the United States, and is also the author of Relational Reality: New Discoveries of Interrelatedness That Are Transforming the Modern World, The Resurgence of the Real, Missing Mary: The Queen of Heaven and Her Re-Emergence in the Modern Church, etc., and primary author of GREEN POLITICS.

She wrote in the Introduction to the first (1982) edition of this book, "All of the pieces in this anthology are active rather than reactive, revolutionary rather than reformist, and express broad political awareness...

This book gives an in depth look at real women's spirituality and its very early beginnings. It gives one an understanding of where we lost our spirituality and how to gain it back. This is a must read for every woman who feels like something is missing as this book will help send you in the right direction to gain it back.
