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. 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/
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”.
