A collection of original essays examining the Goddess Movement in its many facets, Daughters of the Goddess explores the ways women have abandoned Western patriarchal religions and have embraced a spirituality based in a celebration of the Goddess and the female body as sacred text. Among the first scholars to publish in this area, editor Wendy Griffin brings together a group of academics and practitioners who offer a wide-ranging study of this movement, from a critique of the patriarchal cult of Princess Diana to a celebration of bellydance as a form of spiritual expression. Other essays not only trace women's myriad spiritual journeys but also examine the creation of personal rituals that have led to healing and a new sense of identity for many women. An innovative volume, Daughters of the Goddess serves as an invaluable guide for anyone wishing to gain a thorough introduction to this rapidly growing religious and cultural movement.
