22. September 1999

The twentieth anniversary edition of The Spiral Dance celebrates the pivotal role the book has had in bringing Goddess worship to the religious forefront. This bestselling classic is both an unparalleled reference on the practices and philosophies of Witchcraft and a guide to the life-affirming ways in which readers can turn to the Goddess to deepen their sense of personal pride, develop their inner power, and integrate mind, body, and spirit. Starhawk's brilliant, comprehensive overview of the growth, suppression, and modern-day re-emergence of Wicca as a Goddess-worshipping religion has left an indelible mark on the feminist spiritual consciousness.

In a new introduction, Starhawk reveals the ways in which Goddess religion and the practice of ritual have adapted and developed over the last twenty years, and she reflects on the ways in which these changes have influenced and enhanced her original ideas. In the face of an ever-changing world, this invaluable spiritual guidebook is more relevant than ever.

The original book that brought Goddess worship to the public eye has marked its 10th anniversary, yet it still remains an integral part of the Wiccan canon. The Spiral Dance leans heavily toward the feminist aspects of Wicca, but Starhawk's comments on the new edition make it clear that she is aware of the growing male presence in witchcraft. However, this edition is not some watered down, politically correct revision of the original. Very little is changed aside from the addition of Starhawk's observations on how the book has weathered its first decade, and what few changes she would make if she were writing it today. Readers interested in learning more about contemporary witchcraft, whether considering Wicca as a way of life or simply desiring to understand this earth-based religion, will find a wealth of information in The Spiral Dance, and will notice that it becomes one of the most frequently consulted books in their Wicca libraries. --Brian Patterson -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.


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.'

4.0 von 5 Sternen Gelungener Einstieg in die Praxis eines Coven 24. Oktober 2004
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
"Der Hexenkult als Ur-Religion der grossen Göttin.." übt auf Hexeneinsteiger eine faszinierende Wirkung aus.
Es werden ausführlich alle wichtigen Details des Hexenlebens, vorwiegend im Hexenzirkel, aber auch als Solitaire, angesprochen.
Im großen und ganzen ist das Buch leicht zu verstehen, bis auf einige Schachtelsätze.Insgesamt ein gelungenes Werk, für Neulinge.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Brilliant, beautiful and opinionated 26. Juli 2000
As with so many other reviewers, this is the book that started me out in the Craft. The rituals and exercises presented gave me a solid basis for developing my own practice, and five years later much of the basic meditation and ritual material I use comes from Starhawk.
Still, I must agree with many of the more negative reviews that characterize this book as opinionated, sexist and completely political. Starhawk had an agenda in writing it, and the agenda was not to simply present Wicca to the world. Her feminist philosophy is founded in a version of history that was weak in 1979, and is just plain wrong in 2000. She ties religion to politics which is something that I am firmly against, but I can say this- she's honest about it.
This book is an essential text of Wicca, any way you cut it. You will undoubtedly (and hopefully) disagree with some of it, but the author's views are clearly stated, and the exercises and ritual material is not "tainted" by political sentiment. Read the book as the record of an era, and pick and choose what parts to incorporate into your own practice.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Up for some exercises? 29. Juni 2000
Von Matt
With the exception of chapter two, this book is actually pretty good. The only problem I had with chapter two (The World View of Witchcraft) and some other parts of the book was the psychological references. Start talking about my different "Selfs" and I start to blank out. I got over the feminist perspective fairly quickly and found the book to be rather entertaining.
Spiral Dance is a very positive, peaceful, calming look at Witchcraft. I don't think it would have killed Starhawk to include some more information on the God in chapter 6, but something is better than nothing.
I could see this book being very empowering for a woman, but for the male it could do either of two things. The book could make men get upset about the excessive feminism, or feel closer and more in touch with the Goddess aspect of Divinity. I'm glad to say I fit into the latter category.
I really like the 20th anniversary edition for the fact that I can read her comments from ten and twenty years after she wrote the book. It's interesting to see the different ideas between 70's Starhawk, 80's Starhawk, and 90's Starhawk.
The book has a lot of good exercises for the beginner and those who really like to do exercises.
Not a good starting point for the absolute beginner, but defiantly something for someone fairly comfortable with the basics of the Craft. A great book.

I encountered this book when I was fourteen years old, back in the days when this was possibly the most individual-oriented, approachable book about modern Paganism you could find. Since then, I've worn out the covers and dog-eared every page.
Starhawk's approach to magick is the most rational, socially responsible one I've seen. Reading Spiral Dance, I never forgot that what's being described isn't just a self-help system, a political movement, or a system of ritual magick, but a religion.
But about ten years ago, I stopped recommending this book. The historical sources Starhawk used in 1979 were accepted then, but they've since been thoroughly discredited, and I didn't feel comfortable with the idea that all the beautiful poetic discussion of Faith rested on a flimsy (even false) interpretation of Fact.
Now that the twentieth anniversary edition (with explanatory notes and updates to the history) is out, I can recommend this book with a clear conscience and a glad heart.

5.0 von 5 Sternen every witch should read it 24. Dezember 1999
I was stunned when I read some of these reviews that were critical of Starhawk's celebration of the female (feminism, the earth (ecology), and political action. The backlash against women's liberation is upon us surely....and as someone who runs a battered women's shelter, I know what the backlash looks like..
No, you cannot separate Starhawk's feminism or devotion to preservation of the earth, the rivers, the ocean, and other species from her witchcraft. Nor should you. This is part of her dynamic, fascinating, compelling message that has drawn countless people into becoming a witch.
The first book I read was Margot Adler's Drawing Down the Moon. The second was Z Budapest's the Holy Book of Women's Mysteries (which IS female centered and exclusively female). The third was the Spiral Dance.
The Spiral Dance is very specific about spells, rituals, and how to practice. It's a basic book about witchcraft. I keep returning to it, when I need to dedicate an athame, or practice grounding. Every witch should read it.
Thank the Goddess for Starhawk. Otherwise, I would have been stuck with having to have male/female polarity in my rituals. I would have been told (as I have been by others) that if I don't circle with men I can't be a witch. Etc. etc. etc. Ironic, isn't it, that Starhawk is in a mixed gender coven, now practices with her husband, etc. etc. But to the anti-feminists, all focus on the female must be anti-male. It does get tiring.
I also highly recommend Truth or Dare to all witches.
Blessed be!
