Author Info
Starhawk was born Miriam Simos. She was a child of the '60s, when, while attending UCLA she hitchhiked, took courses in anthropology, and became interested in witchcraft. She founded a coven in the mid-'70s in San Francisco, and wrote about it in her breakthrough book THE SPIRAL DANCE. She is a prominent figure in goddess-worship, and has helped write films on that topic (THE GODDESS REMEMBERED and THE BURNING TIMES). Starhawk has taught witchcraft, ecofeminism, and goddess spirituality at a collective in San Francisco called Reclaiming. TRUTH OR DARE, a collection of writings on spirituality and politics, shows how she merges a feminist/Wicca theoretical base with a practice of activism and community.

From the Publisher
Editors Note From time immemorial, artists and poets, prophets, and shamans have drawn strength and inspiration from walking the earth. In The Earth Path, bestselling author Starhawk takes the reader on a journey into the heart of the natural world, showing how we can have a more intimate connection with the world that surrounds us.Institutionalized religions have sacred texts -- messages written in holy books that are the inspiration for their beliefs and rituals. But the sacred texts for Wicca, like other ancient native or indigenous traditions, are written in nature -- in the magic circle of the elements: air, fire, water, and earth. With The Earth Path, Starhawk, an activist, ecofeminist, and leader in the women’s spirituality movement, places you in the center of that magical circle. As you become attuned to the rhythms of the earth, your thinking will shift from focusing on isolated objects to marveling at the multitude of interconnecting patterns and relationships in nature. These patterns and connections can hold the key to your own spiritual renewal and restore your sense of responsibility for preserving this world that nurtures and sustains us.Filled with awareness exercises, inspiring meditations, and magical rituals, The Earth Path not only teaches the reader to respect the ecology of our natural world, but shows how to spiritually connect with and channel the powers inherent in nature.
Annotation 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.
