Description: She Rises: How Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality? is a proud sister book to She Rises: Why Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality? Inheriting the legacy of Volume 1, this book continues to interweave the warp (the theme of the book) and the weft (our stories). What we present in this book is a tapestry collectively interwoven by the twenty-first century Goddessians/Magoists. As many as ninety-six contributors from around the world have provided captivating motifs in prose, poetry, research, and/or art. This tapestry is no ordinary one; it stands as the genome map of the primordial consciousness of WE in S/HE to those who encounter it. It charts out ways to undo patriarchal programs at personal, cultural, and cosmic levels and to enter the Way of the Primordial Mother, or the Creatrix. She Rises Volume 2 distinguishes herself from her predecessor in several ways. Most apparently, the warp, the “how” question, that is, “How one is committed to Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?” summons us, our authors and readers, to put in action our answers provided to the “why” question, “Why one is committed to Goddess Feminism, Activism, and Spirituality?” in the previous volume. And the weft, our stories, consolidates our roots in the inseparable one ground of feminism, activism, and spirituality of the Primordial Mother. The horizon is widened with new markings. Voices are emboldened, exposing the hidden patriarchal ruses. And our images whisper deep awakenings. This book works at multi-levels. Structured as Nine Sisters (Chapters) under Three Mothers (Parts), like her predecessor, this book takes on another layer of meaning that it restores the Nine Goddess/Mago Movement in our time. Experience our book that awakens minds, provides sanctuaries, heals wounds, cures diseases, crosses borders, and connects the isolated. Fully charged with fresh insights, e-motions, and aspirations, it sends out the metamorphic power of Goddessians/Magoists.

My life purpose is creating deeper awareness.

Typos corrected in a new edition of printed books:
In “The Black Goddess” by Elizabeth Chloe Erderman, “gilt” should be “guilt” in the line “turn the guilt into gold”.

- (Book Review) Helen Hwang’s The Mago Way by Elizabeth Hall Magill
Dr. Helen Hwang’s The Mago Way makes a significant contribution to our understanding of thealogy (the theological study of the divine feminine) and to the transnational feminism that must be the basis of global change. The Mago Way weaves together several stories—Dr. Hwang’s own journey away from Christianity and toward Mago (the gynocentric principle, rooted in pre-patriarchal East Asian/Korean culture, that encompasses all of existence), the story of Mago as told through the text of the Budoji (made available in […]
- She Rises Book Review by Dr. Moses Seenarine
Order it in Mago Bookstore! [Originally posted in Cyborgs Vs Earth Goddess.] During the last two decades, the feminist literature has expanded to become more diverse and inclusive. Yet, relatively few books have emerged which focus on Goddesses and their significance to feminism and women’s liberation. This is due in part to a complete lack of interest by academics and feminists alike in exploring either historical or contemporary Goddess cultures. This disparaging view of gynocentric tradition is unfortunate, since it […]
