From the Publisher:
America's most renowned witch and eco–feminist offers a sequel to her bestselling classic The Spiral Dance, weaving together the latest findings in environmental science with magical spells, chants, meditations and group exercises to create the ultimate primer on our relationship to the earth.
From the earliest times, respecting our interdependent relationship with nature has been the first step toward spirituality. Earth, air, fire and water are the four elements worshiped in many indigenous cultures and celebrated in earth–based spiritualities such as Wicca. In The Earth Path, America's best–known witch offers readers a primer on how to open our eyes to the world around us, respect nature's delicate balance, and draw upon its tremendous powers.
Filled with inspiring meditations, chants, and blessings, it offers healing for the spirit in a stressed world and helps readers find their own sources of strength and renewal.
Will appeal to Starhawk's traditional Pagan, New Age, and feminist readership.
Young women newly interested in magic and witchcraft.
A new and growing generation of those involved in ecology
Nature is sacred for Wiccans and other Pagans, and like the sacred books of later believers, it holds many truths for those who can "read" it. In THE EARTH PATH, Starhawk helps us (re)learn how to "read" and experience nature--to see it, hear it, breathe it, feel it, and gradually discern its life-giving patterns and pulse. As an ecoactivist, Starhawk has participated in many demonstrations and education programs; this book, in a somewhat different way, grounds her work at its most basic rationale. Through her journal-like reports on her direct contact with nature, Starhawk conveys a sense of detail and a sense of the variety of nature, as well as a connectedness to something larger.
"[Starhawk] engages readers' spirits and minds through her illustrative , offering ways to communicate more fully with the world and suggesting ways to act." 08/30/2004
