Blessings for this new year ahead. The summer season in the Southern Hemisphere brings celebrations of the Solstice and the turning towards the dark, even as the celebrations in the Northern hemisphere honor the turning towards the light. Ever turning. Ever changing. She changes everything she touches; everything She touches changes.
Using as a springboard She Rises Volume 1, the collective writing project of She Rises Volume 2 aspires to interweave new patterns in the tapestry of Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality. While the first volume was evolved around stating/proclaiming the rational or cause of our Goddessian/Magoist commitment by answering the question, “Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?,” the second volume takes a step further to ask the “How?” question, “How… Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?”
We are asking you to tell us about HOW you ‘do’ Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality. HOW is Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality present in your life? HOW do you engage Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality? HOW do you live Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality?
You may like to engineer the question on your behalf and answer it for us all. Here are some examples of the question: “How (do I practice) Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?” or “How (do I engage myself in) Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?”
It is our hope that the question “How?” potentially produces a record of ways we engage Goddess Feminism, Activism and Spirituality. We foresee a possibility that She Rises Volume 2 may become a guidebook of some sorts.
She Rises, volume one, asked WHY? and 92 contributors answered the question with depth, honesty, insight, creativity, imagination, and inspiration.
Now we are asking HOW? Your answers will offer:
- a guidebook for those beginning their journey with Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality,
- a confirmation for those already engaged with Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality,
- another thread in the tapestry of Goddess feminism, activism, and spirituality that is being woven by women and men all over the World.
Let’s weave a tapestry of answers! To be part of this weaving, please send your contribution to all three of us (include all three emails in your one email):

Nicole Shaw – email@example.com
Mary Ann Beavis – firstname.lastname@example.org

My life purpose is creating deeper awareness. This is what motivates me and is the thread that weaves through my artwork, writing, activism, organic farming, advocating for local food production, founding groups and organizations (such as the Bowen Road Farmers’ Market and Nanaimo WomanShare), and living as lightly and as sustainably as I can on the earth. http://nicoleshaw.weebly.com/
