Be Initiated into a New Way of Life.
Following on from the 'Thorsons First Directions' series, this new series provides a more in-depth, sophisticated introduction.
With the growth of paganism and particularly in wicca, both women and men are moving away from male-authority god figures towards a more creative, less goal-oriented spirituality. This book is an introduction to goddess spirituality, a burgeoning area of Mind, Body, Spirit interest, showing you practical ways to discover the goddess within and bring her into your everyday life.
This practical and in-depth guide includes:
- A brief history of goddess spirituality, its relevance, and where it's at today
- What goddess spirituality actually means - the principles behind it
- How to discover your goddess within
- Goddess rituals
- Goddess magic
- Glossary of goddesses for today with correspondences, symbols and associations (e.g. invoke Hecate, Goddess of the Hearth, if you want to improve relationships at home).
The featured goddesses come from around the globe - including Celtic, Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and African. The book teaches readers about celebrating the goddess in the cycle of the year, finding their own patron goddess, the green goddess and ecospirituality.
The book is at once informative enough for a more experienced reader and accessible enough for a beginner.
