"This is a unique publication," says Rosalie Muschal-Reinhardt. "Although there are many resources for women with breast cancer, there are no rituals to help with the complex issues that arise when a woman has breast cancer."
Co-author Barbara Mitrano adds, "A woman can read the book by herself and be inspired. She can also celebrate the rituals with a small group of family and friends or a support group.""
"It is essential that women celebrate their own experiences," offers Jeanne Brinkman Grinnan. "We have taken symbols from everyday life and used them to empower women to see their strength and vulnerability, their courage and fear. We are constantly amazed at the difference doing so makes in women's lives."
Despite the seriousness of its topic, the book's dominant theme is belief in oneself and in the goodness of life. "We use the story of Pandora's Box as a theme to guide us on this arduous and tumultuous journey," Mary Rose McCarthy adds. "When Pandora opened the box, all sorts of suffering spilled out upon the world. What we fail to remember is that one treasure remained in the box. That treasure is Hope."About the Author:
The Prism Collective is a group of feminist educators and writers who create resources to make the world a safer and saner place for women.
Because we are committed to social change through educational and spiritual development, we generate materials that we believe make feminist scholarship more accessible to women. We create ways for all women to develop their spiritualities that begin with their own experiences.
We work in a collaborative model which grows out of mutuality and respect for the gifts each of us brings to the community.
We offer the prism as a symbol to remind us that we must look at what is familiar through a different perspective. By refocusing the lens through which we view the world, we see social change as possible.
