Description: This book may be seen as a guidebook to the consciousness of the Great Goddess, the primordial consciousness of WE in S/HE, by contemporary Goddessians. The question, “Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?” taken as the warp, is interwoven with the weft of the answers provided by 92 contributors from around the world. She Rises puts forth ever-unfolding patterns of Goddessian thoughts, experiences, and visions expressed through a variety of works including short writings, poems, essays, artworks, and research papers. Our authors take us far and near, from the cosmic horizon to the very political site of one’s inner feeling. Probing the very foundation of one’s thinking/feeling/sensing, She Rises collectively re-members and re-stores what has been forgotten or rather erased in the mind of people under the advancement of patriarchal times. The acoustic/semantic/visual chorus of this book sometimes whispers and other times trumpets the premise that knowing the Goddess is a beginning of one’s action to re-create the self and the world. More to the structure, She Rises taps into the gynocentric power of the numeric symbolism of three and nine by (1) calling Parts as Mothers and Chapters as Sisters and (2) inventing the Nine Sisters under the Three Mothers.
