This classic exploration of the Goddess through time and throughout the world draws on religious, cultural, and archaeological sources to recreate the Goddess religion that is humanity’s heritage. Now, with a new introduction and full-color artwork, this passionate and important text shows even more clearly that the religion of the Goddess--which is tied to the cycles of women’s bodies, the seasons, the phases of the moon, and the fertility of the earth--was the original religion of all humanity.

This book is about situations we all have had, or will go through literally in life that will either transform our minds or allow us the opportunity to have other situations that will. The need to know yourself and your purpose for being here is the key point of the journey. The book shares that in life we all have stories, adventures, even tragedies that we feel are real. We have them but we are not them. The chapters describe the high roads and the low roads of love, sex, relationships, talents, servitude and gratitude. Ultimately the book pronounces the importance of the male and female balance. It reintroduces the significance of The Woman, The Mother, The Female and her presence in the world. She is the focal point of this book. Due to the patriarchal dominance for so long, this book is written to cause thoughts of what the world would be like when the balance of both male and female energy is in total harmony without, dominance, control and power for the gratification of the false ego verses the higher sense of being.

Women And Gender Issues In British Paganism 1945 1990

This book explores the ways in which changing views on gender and the place of women in society during the latter half of the twentieth century affected women’s participation and standing within British Paganism. More specifically, it examines how British Wiccans and Wiccan-derived Pagans reacted to the rise of 'second-wave' feminism and the Women's Liberation Movement in the UK – with a special emphasis on the reception of feminist theory hailing from the USA – and to the emergence of feminist branches of Witchcraft and Goddess Spirituality during the 1970s and 1980s. The book draws on primary sources never before analyzed in an academic context and makes a valuable contribution to the growing body of knowledge on gender and religion during the twentieth century, as very little research has been conducted on the relations between the history of modern Paganism and that of second-wave feminism in the UK.

This feisty and inspiring treatise blames the destructive cultural myth of female self-sacrifice for the desire for breast implants, the conservative insistence on family values, and the general cultural attitude that prevents women from supporting one another’s accomplishments. Using everything from psychological analysis to clever fairy-tale parodies—called “fairer tales”—the author promotes an ideology for women that is neither bra-burning feminism nor passive conservatism, but rather a belief in self-development.

The Great Cosmic Lesson Plan is a unique way of looking at life. It presents a perspective that combines spirituality, psychology, humor and music as pieces of the puzzle leading to a happy, peaceful, meaningful life. We are all connected to each other in the great energy source that is God. We become unhappy when things don’t go our way in the material world. This book suggests that happiness will come from a gradual shift to spiritual values. The book presents practical techniques for letting go of anger, fear, guilt, and negative beliefs. Additionally, humor and music are very helpful in aiding the process of letting go. Part One explores changes which need to be made to find happiness and the means to accomplish those changes. Ultimately to reach this goal, there needs be a connection to the source of all being, often called God. Part Two presents this message in the form of a comic novel. Dr. Hans Off, a chiropractor meets tragedy when he is bitten by an aardvark and can no longer practice his profession. Instead of sinking into depression, he goes on a spiritual search to find new meaning in his life. He visits a variety of therapists including an analyst, an existentialist and a spiritual therapist. Dr. Off discovers that enlightenment requires lightening up.

The Great Shift is a progress report from the field and the messages are positive. ''You don't have to logically do anything but 'show up' with spiritual intent, and the DNA quantum field is activated in your body, '' Kryon says. He tells us to expect changes and peace we may have never thought to see in our lifetimes, even in the Middle East. He says, ''God is not a controlling force. Look for the love.'' Tom Kenyon channeling the Hathors, a group consciousness entity, reminds us, ''It is your attention to an event that makes it conscious.'' Kenyon also explains what channeled material is, which is important in understanding how we co-create our own world: ''From the standpoint of neuropsychology, channeled information is just another expression of our brain/mind potential . . . a movement into the unknown territory of one's own psyche to see what emerges in terms of contact (with other intelligences) and information.'' The Hathors message for what is now and what is to come: ''It is so simple, it is forgotten. . . . Find a way to live your life in joy and happiness.'' Mary Magdalen, through Tom Kenyon, makes it clear that restoring the balance between male and female energies will mean good things for men as well as women and will reignite our creative potency. Patricia Cori channeling the High Council of Sirius reminds us that the future is never predetermined and the past is an illusion - different for each of us. Lee Carroll has been channeling Kryon for many years and is the author of Kryon books, most recently Lifting the Veil: The New Energy Apocalypse. As Lee Carroll he is the co-author of The Indigo Children. He and his partner, Jan Tober, began Kryon light groups in 1991 and now host groups around the world. Carroll lives in San Diego, California

'Thealogy and Embodiment' both analyses and contributes to spiritural feminism's postmodern construction of the female body as a metaphor and medium of divine generativity. Addressing religious studies and women's studies students and all those interested in contemporary spirituality, Raphael counters reformist feminism's recurrent criticism of goddess feminism as naively essentialist and sub-political. She presents spiritual feminism as a set of religio-political manoeuvres that powerfully resist such patriarchal degradations of female/natural generativity as environmental destruction, weight-reducing diets, and menstrual taboos.

Pagan Theology

In Pagan Theology, Michael York situates Paganism—one of the fastest-growing spiritual orientations in the West—as a world religion. He provides an introduction to, and expansion of, the concept of Paganism and provides an overview of Paganism's theological perspective and practice. He demonstrates it to be a viable and distinguishable spiritual perspective found around the world today in such forms as Chinese folk religion, Shinto, tribal religions, and neo-Paganism in the West. While adherents to many of these traditions do not use the word “pagan” to describe their beliefs or practices, York contends that there is an identifiable position possessing characteristics and understandings in common for which the label “pagan” is appropriate. After outlining these characteristics, he examines many of the world's major religions to explore religious behaviors in other religions which are not themselves pagan, but which have pagan elements. In the course of examining such behavior, York provides rich and lively descriptions of religions in action, including Buddhism and Hinduism. Pagan Theology claims Paganism’s place as a world religion, situating it as a religion, a behavior, and a theology.

J.R.R. Tolkien claimed that he based the land of Middle Earth on a real place. The Real Middle Earth brings alive, for the first time, the very real civilization in which those who lived had a vision of life animated by beings beyond the material world. Magic was real to these people and they believed their universe was held together by an interlaced web of golden threads visible only to wizards. At its center was Middle Earth, a place peopled by humans, but imbued with spiritual power. It was a real realm that stretched from Old England to Scandinavia and across to western Europe, encompassing Celts, Anglo Saxons and Vikings. Looking first at the rich and varied tribes who made up the populace of this mystical land, Bates looks at how the people lived their daily lives in a world of magic and mystery. Using archaeological, historical, and psychological research, Brian Bates breathes life into this civilization of two thousand years ago in a book that every Tolkien fan will want.

A fresh look at the perennial reality of the gods and how they help humanity-through the planet's sacred sites The "gods" live! Though seemingly relegated to the archives of myth, the "gods" of antiquity are still with us in the form of the Great White Brotherhood. In fact, what the ancients described as their pantheon are members of this is an august assembly of spiritually advanced beings, based on the constellation of the Great Bear. The Gods in Their Cities, based on original clairvoyant research, reveals that the Great White Brotherhood has numerous meeting places for humans throughout the planet's array of holy sites. Seven different Great White Brotherhood types of geomantic locales are documented, and all of them exist in multiple copies on Earth. The Gods in Their Cities shows how myths of many cultures, from the Irish to Sumerians, are actually psychic maps to the planet's secret visionary terrain, to the geomantic locales of the Brotherhood, and how to successfully interact with them. And it probes behind the mythic guises of the Ray Masters, 14 select great Adepts involved with many aspects of Earth life and geomancy since the beginning-including the true identity of Jesus, Mary Magdalene, the Virgin Mary, and Merlin. Merely our knowing that this esoteric Brotherhood and their interactive locales across the Earth exist can inspire confidence, even certainty, that reality, and thus our planet, culture, and individual human lives, have meaning and are purposeful.
