"I was amazed to find that I had no idea how to unfold my spiritual life in a feminine way. I was surprised, and, in fact, a little terrified, when I found myself in the middle of a feminist spiritual reawakening." ––Sue Monk Kidd

For years, Sue Monk Kidd was a conventionally religious woman. Then, in the late 1980s, Kidd experienced an unexpected awakening, and began a journey toward a feminine spirituality. With the exceptional storytelling skills that have helped make her name, author of When the Heart Waits tells her very personal story of the fear, anger, healing, and freedom she experienced on the path toward the wholeness that many women have lost in the church. From a jarring encounter with sexism in a suburban drugstore, to monastery retreats and to rituals in the caves of Crete, she reveals a new level of feminine spiritual consciousness for all women– one that retains a meaningful connection with the "deep song of Christianity," embraces the sacredness of ordinary women's experience, and has the power to transform in the most positive ways every fundamental relationship in a woman's life– her marriage, her career, and her religion.

This Plus edition paperback includes a recent interview with the author conducted by the book's editor Michael Maudlin.

From the Inside Flap:

For years, award-winning author Sue Monk Kidd recounted the joys and sorrows of her life as a Christian in books and essays that touched the hearts of readers everywhere. Then, in the late 1980s, Kidd experienced an unexpected awakening, one that brought her into conflict with every aspect of her former life. She began a journey toward a feminine spirituality.

"I was amazed to find that I had no idea how to unfold my spiritual life in a feminine way," says Kidd. "I was surprised, and, in fact, a little terrified, when I found myself in the middle of a feminist spiritual awakening."

With the exceptional storytelling skills that have helped make her name, Kidd tells her very personal tale of the fear, anger, healing, and freedom she experienced on the path toward the wholeness that women have lost within the patriarchal faith traditions.

From a jarring encounter with sexism in a suburban drugstore, to monastery retreats and to rituals in the caves of Crete, she reveals a new level of eminine spiritual consciousness for all women -- one that retains a meaningful connection with "the deep song of Christianity," embraces the sacredness of ordinary women's experience, and has the power to transform in the most positive ways every fundamental relationship in a woman's life -- her marriage, her career, and her religion.

"Out of reflections and words like these in The Dance of the Dissident Daughter the new forms of Christianity will be born. This work is packed with experience and insight, and it is bound to add to the gigantic shift in consciousness taking place as the millenium turns and a transformation of spiritual consciousness takes hold of the human population of a global level."--Murray Stein, Ph.D., author of Jung's Treatment of Christianity

"The pshyco-spiritual redefinition that takes place when we expand our understanding of the Christian tradition to embrace the gracious challenge of the Sacred Feminine is an invisible process. Sue Monk Kidd courageously articulates this unseen path so all who read this book will understand this painful and rewarding journey."--Lauren Artress, author of Walking a Sacred Path

From the Back Cover:

From The Dance of the Dissident Daughter:

It was autumn, and everything was turning loose....For the previous couple of years I had been in the midst of a tumultuous awakening. I had been struggling to come to terms with my life as a woman -- in my culture, my marriage, my faith, my church, and deep inside myself. It was a process not unlike the experience of conception and labor....It had been extraordinary and surprising to find myself -- a conventionally religious woman in my late thirties -- suddenly struck pregnant with a new consciousness, with an unfolding new awareness of what it means to be a woman and what it means to be spiritual as a woman....Still, the initial idea of telling my story in this book gave me pause. The hardest thing about writing is telling the truth. Maybe it's the hardest thing about being a woman, too. I think of Nisa, the old African woman who was telling story....She said, "I will tell my talkd...But don't let the people I live with hear what I have to say...." I know that feeling. But in the end, Nisa and I, we told our truth anyway.
