Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Monaghan, popular author of The Goddess Companion and The Goddess Path, turns her attention to goddesses-in-waiting in this Wiccan manual designed especially for young women. She draws upon 12 myths and legends of young goddesses who can provide life examples for young women today. Thus the story of a Finnish creator goddess becomes an object lesson in unleashing creativity, and the Arctic goddess Sedna, who refused to marry, offers the chance to examine rites of passage into womanhood. The best part of Monaghan's manual is her storytelling; she has effectively reshaped the stories of goddesses such as Austrina, Artemis, Sabulana and Kuan-Yin (who, as she points out, is not technically a goddess but a bodhisattva) into relevant messages for young women. Monaghan clearly desires to speak directly and informally with that audience, resulting in some fine moments but also a few examples of trying too hard ("It may seem hard to believe, in today's society, that there was a time when a girl's first blood was celebrated with parades and parties. Wouldn't that be embarrassing, having everyone know?"). Young women and girls will probably enjoy the book's practical focus, however; the 12 chapters are arranged so that small groups can learn about one goddess a month and try the hands-on learning techniques suggested here, such as forming healing circles, constructing a personal altar or making special teas. Monaghan also offers interesting tips on multicultural awareness, highlighting goddess traditions from around the world. (Apr.) Forecast: Llewellyn found itself with a surprising hit in 2000 with its Witches' Chillers fiction series, which has been snapped up by a growing audience of teenage girls who are interested in witchcraft. This title, which blends storytelling with practical magic, will appeal to the same demographic. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

Meet the Author

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.

    ITS A VERY GREAT BOOK FOR YOUR YOUNGEST!

    When I started learning, and getting intrested in the craft, which it was about 3 years back, this was the first book I've ever own, but I really wouldent recomend it for teens, but then again it's good for JUST beginners, because it really was boring, but then I realized that its very perfecto for the youngest member of the family, or if your family is teached by the realigion, its great for the amaganation for your child to get him/her intested into the craft! so I give it a Five! it teaches you lessions just like any other, and when they get older they'll look back on that lession and learn from it!
