Wildpfade - eine faszinierende Auswahl lebendiger Quellen und Wege, die Frauen in jüngerer Zeit bei ihrer Suche nach einem erfüllenden spirituellen Leben für sich entdeckt, wiederentdeckt oder auch gänzlich neu kreiert haben. Das Buch richtet sich an alle, die heute eine Spiritualität zu entwickeln und zu leben suchen, die nicht auf den Vorstellungen von Männern längst vergangener Zeiten und Kulturen basiert, sondern die mit ihrer eigenen menschlichen Erfahrung, ihrem eigenen Wissen, Fühlen und Erkennen hier und heute in Einklang steht. Es führt auf eine Reise der Inspiration, die mit so unterschiedlichen Bereichen bekannt macht wie der Naturreligion der Hexen und der transpersonalen Psychologie; eine Reise, die zurückführt bis in die Vorgeschichte und die in Form einer Einführung in die neue Frauen- oder auch Göttinspiritualität nach vorne blickt. Wildpfade stellt holistische, lebensbejahende, lebenfeiernde Visionen dieser Welt dar, lädt dazu ein, uns selbst und diese Existenz tiefer zu verstehen, intensiver und freudiger zu leben, mehr und mehr in uns selbst und in dieser ganzen Welt zu Hause zu sein und uns gleichzeitig unverbrüchlich im Zeitlosen verwurzelt zu wissen.

A collection of original essays examining the Goddess Movement in its many facets, Daughters of the Goddess explores the ways women have abandoned Western patriarchal religions and have embraced a spirituality based in a celebration of the Goddess and the female body as sacred text. Among the first scholars to publish in this area, editor Wendy Griffin brings together a group of academics and practitioners who offer a wide-ranging study of this movement, from a critique of the patriarchal cult of Princess Diana to a celebration of bellydance as a form of spiritual expression. Other essays not only trace women's myriad spiritual journeys but also examine the creation of personal rituals that have led to healing and a new sense of identity for many women. An innovative volume, Daughters of the Goddess serves as an invaluable guide for anyone wishing to gain a thorough introduction to this rapidly growing religious and cultural movement.

Paradise is not the state of being in harmony, but the process of harmonizing. It is not a garden of bliss, but the bliss of gardening. Paradise is about mending the self, restoring the balance, getting back into tune, bringing all our discarded and forgotten parts into the whole. That means paying attention to and honoring synchronicities, precognitive dreams, telepathic communications, visions--and all manner of experiences of psychic sensitivity. Philosophy professor Joe Felser realized that what he calls the "decrepit, decaying cultural ideologies," in exclusively favoring reason and logic, were excluding the equally real world of magic and psychic activities. He began to investigate, and the closer he looked, the more he found. But he wasn't ready to abandon the world of reason and logic. Instead, he wanted to see if he could find a way to blend the two. He did. The result is this book. In The Way Back to Paradise, Felser takes you through his day, showing what everyday life looks like when you live that blend. His stories, both magical and reasonable, point the way toward a new kind of paradise, one suited to the 21st century.
