Other Information: illustrations
Published In: United States, 15 November 1999
The influential masterwork that launched the American Goddess movement is even more popular and relevant than ever- a bestselling spiritual classic. This brilliant overview of the growth, supression, and modern-day reemergence of Wicca as a Goddess-worshipping religion has left an indelible mark on the feminist spiritual consciousness. In this beautiful 20th-anniversary edition, Starhawk now reveals the ways in which the practice of ritual and Goddess religion have, in the face of a changing world, developed over the last 20 years -- and the ways in which these changes have influenced and enhanced her original ideas. This important spiritual guidebook provides both the tools of ancient practice and the means to adapt them to our lives today -- for, according to Starhawk, 'a living tradition is not static or fixed; it changes and responds to changing needs and changing times.'

This is a seminal text in the goddess movement which I have found as relevant today as it was over 20 years ago...what a ground-breaker it must have been back then! In particular I have found this 20th anniversary edition particularly valuable as it includes both Starhawk's 10th anniversary commentary and her 20th anniversary commentary, which demonstrate the evolution of her understanding of this movement. Starhawk, honestly and with humility reviews her work, indicating where time, maturity and global consciousness has informed and modified her beliefs. In particular, her understanding of other religious beliefs and philosophies, and the male/female dichotomies. This is a must have for all you goddesses out there...especially if you are interested in the history that informs much of what you may have accepted about earth-based or goddess-based spirituality. Good stuff!

An interesting look at wicca and neopaganism, with some advice. Despite her superhero name, this is not full of crazy talk and weirdness. It is worth a read of you are interested in that movement, and want to discover what makes them tick, even if you have no interest in being a religious practictioner, or having a religion at all.

This is an excellent book for anyone at any stage of their life or spiritual journey. It would suit beginners and those far more advanced in Wiccan traditions. I found it to be like like a mini encylopedia and a valuable too in planning rituals and sabbats. The only thing that saddens me about this writer is that she has now become very commercialsed.
