9780892819645: The Path of the Priestess: A Guidebook for Awakening the Divine Feminine

A guide for personal exploration of the path to the divine feminine and the spiritual power of women.

· Reveals the essential role of women in creating and maintaining the psychic/energetic/emotional landscape of society.

· Explores feminine roles and the archetypal model of the Great Goddess from both Eastern and Western spiritual traditions.

· Includes exercises, meditations, and visualizations drawn from ancient techniques to assist women with their spiritual awakening and self-realization.

The Path of the Priestess takes readers on a journey deep into the heart of the feminine experience. It describes the author's years of first-hand experience in the ancient arts of Tantra, Dzogchen, and Indian and Egyptian temple dance and healing, as well as her research into the feminine principle in the mystic teachings of the Alchemists, Hebrew Kabbalists, and Christian Gnostics.

Beginning with an analysis of the basic issues and frustrations inherent in contemporary society's conditioning of and expectations for women, readers travel back in time to the age of the great temples, schools, and sacred societies in which women still held and transmitted the spiritual light that nourished all of civilization. Through its mythic and historic tales, descriptions of sacred ritual practices, and teachings on the Goddess traditions, The Path of the Priestess provides contemporary women with the means to enter this time-honored path. In keeping with the experientially based teaching methods of these traditions, it also offers exercises and visualizations designed to align women with the powerful, sensuous, and loving energies of the most profound feminine role model that shaped and preserved culture and society--the Great Goddess.

From the Back Cover:

SPIRITUALITY / WOMEN’S STUDIES

“In this beautifully written book Sharron Rose shares her challenging journey between two diametrically opposed cultures--the ancient, spiritually dominated world of the East and the modern, technologically dominated world of the West. An intriguing tale of an American seeker on the spiritual path.”
--Ellen Burstyn, actor and writer

“In this rich and fascinating book Sharron Rose evokes the connection between the Goddess and the luminous energy body in a way that is meaningful to modern readers. Through this process she reveals an ancient and sacred path toward healing ourselves and the world around us. A must-read for anyone in the healing and performing arts.”
--Alberto Villoldo, Ph.D., author of Shaman, Healer, Sage

“An inspiring read. Sharron Rose takes us on her spiritual journey, unveiling at every turn the presence of the Divine Feminine that has been hidden in this age of spiritual materialism, an age from which we are beginning to awaken.”
--Belinda Gore, Ph.D., president of The Cuyamungue Institute and author of Ecstatic Body Postures: An Alternate Reality Workbook

“Dancer, artist, philosopher, and spiritual adept, Sharron Rose is of the lineage of those bold and luminous women who take the journey to the Goddess wherever and to whomever it may lead. In this potent work Shakti power dances off each page. Here is the Goddess in her many forms, and in her masterful teachings. Here is living witness to the emergence of the light of the Divine Feminine after the long dark night of the patriarchy. Here, in vibrant words, is the transmission of the sacred current that would illumine our reality.”
--Jean Houston, Ph.D, author of A Mythic Life and Jump Time

The Path of the Priestess provides both eloquent insights into the nature of Goddess energy and ways for the reader to realize it for themselves. Goddess consciousness is the evolutionary path of choice for the planet. I give The Path of the Priestess my highest endorsement.”
--Penny Slinger Hills, author of Sexual Secrets

The Path of the Priestess takes readers on a compelling journey deep into the heart of the feminine experience, presenting a rare glimpse of the essential and significant role of women as caretakers of the psychic, energetic, and emotional landscape of society.
