13 of 14 people found the following review helpful By cortezhill VINE VOICE on July 11, 2006
Format: Paperback
Beginning with the myth of Inanna's descent to the underworld, rendered in breathtaking poetry, the journey of the feminine is divided into five stages with poetry, essay, and prose tying together Meador's study of feminine initiation across time and culture.

Her decription of a Blessingway Sing reveals the balance of feminine and masculine acheived in the Navajo culture. A critique of Doris Lessing's novels captures the felt sense of descent and discovery. Research on a Greek women's ritual - the Thesmophoria - and a survey of recent archeological findings from the goddess cultures add history and substance to the ideas of the feminine. A clinical study of the relationship between female therapist and female client demonstrates one contemporary mode for such exploration.

Thus we learn that there are many routes for exploring the lost initiations of women into the progress of their souls and the ways of the Goddess.
