Reclamation Reading Room: The Goddess Reawakening

 

This book is an anthology with an introduction by Merlin Stone author of “When God Was a Woman” which I will also be reviewing in this space. Notable passages for me included:

Reclaiming Our Goddess Heritage by Raine Eisler

Oya, Black Goddess of Africa by Judith Gleason

Rediscovering the Feminine Principle by Joan Chamberlain Englishman

Sacred and Legendary Women of Native North America by Nancy C.. Zak

Summary

“This anthology, with essays by Riane Eisler, June Singer, and others, considers Goddess myths, current psychological perspectives, and the feminine principle in spirituality today. It offers a worldview that integrates intuition, intellect, and feeling.”
