Product Overview

In Western cultures, the central image of the spiritual quest forselfhood is that of the mythic, male, hero. A male hero, however, represents thequest for selfhood incompletely and awkwardly for women. In this provocative work, Kathryn Rabuzzi focuses on a different image -- that of the mother. For womenseeking spiritual fulfillment of self, Rabuzzi points out the way of the mother, replacing the androcentric myths of the West with gynocentric myths based on thearchetypal model of the Goddess.

In contrast to the selfhood forwhich the hero quests, "motherself" is the name for what women achieve when theyfollow the way of the mother. Rabuzzi defines that way with imagination andlucidity; her work provides an invaluable guide to all women struggling toarticulate their religious experience in new terms.
