Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
One of the leaders of the contemporary earth spirituality movement, Patricia Monaghan (1946 - 2012) had spent more than 20 years researching and writing about alternative visions of the earth. Raised in Alaska, where much of her family still lives, she considered herself blessed to have learned the ecology of the taiga, the subarctic forest, in her youth. She was a writer and reporter on science and energy-related issues before turning her attention to the impact of mythic structures on our everyday lives. The worldwide vision of the earth as feminine--as a goddess, called Gaia by the Greeks--led her to recognize the connection between ecological damage and the oppression of the feminine in Western society. Much of her work since that time had explored the question of the role of feminine power in our world, in an inclusive and multicultural way. An avid traveler, Patricia had researched earth spirituality and goddess worship on three continents, and traveled widely in Europe, especially in Ireland. She held dual US/Irish citizenship and edited two anthologies of contemporary Irish-American writing. Patricia was member of the resident faculty at DePaul University's School for New Learning in Chicago, where she taught science and literature. She passed from this world in November 2012 and is survived by her husband, Dr Michael McDermott.
The Goddess Path is a welcome addition to the literature, and a wonderful introduction for women (and men!) who are just entering the universe of feminist Goddess Spirituality. The book's introductory chapters are inclusive of male lovers and sons who might find themselves seeking this path along with their beloved women. The Goddess is central; this is not a book about the God. The Goddess is a deity all people can love and honor.
The opening chapters, "The Goddess Defined," give clear descriptions of the basics of the Goddess' spirituality: Who is the Goddess? What are Her images? What are Her rituals like? What are the beliefs and worldview in a religion of the Goddess? The remainder of the text, indeed the bulk of the volume, is "The Goddess Revealed." These twenty chapters delve deeply into twenty goddesses, from Gaia's abundance to Pomona's joy.
Patricia Monaghan's very special gift, revealed in all her writings, is her ability to present wonderfully detailed scholarship, not in a dry way, but in writing that is poetic and gorgeous. Perhaps the most special thing about this book is the invocations to the Goddesses that begin each chapter. These invocations are Patricia's poetic translations and recreations of invocations to these Goddesses, invocations used by Her people in each culture, from ancient times.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
