written by women of power incarnate. To Linda Falario an essence of Babalon
is the warrior. To Soror Chen, a self invoked Babalon can lead women to "a world
which reflects the gifts of woman's genius". To Mishlen Linden, Babalon is the
Priestess, The Woman of Power. The Babalon of Raven Greywalker is the Sacred
Prostitute. Nema voices both appreciation of Babalon as an image of the female
principal and articulates a problematic one dimensional aspect of this sacred figure which keeps Her essence in the realm of duality.
In these essays, past Babalons are addressed in Chen and Nema's articles and
present Babalons are attended to in the articles by Falorio, Raven, and Mishlen.
