Synopsis: Listen to the Voices of Goddesses
With poetry and prose, litany and song, Seasons of the Witch measures the turning of a year, the cycles of the natural world, and the seasons of a woman's life.
Lyrical and literate, much- loved and sought-after, the award-winning Seasons of the Witch is back in print. Written by Patricia Monaghan, one of the founding mothers of the women's spirituality movement, the original version of this classic book received the Friends of Literature award for poetry. Its poems and music are frequently used in both private and public rituals, and the poem "Burials" was selected as the invocation for the Worldwide Goddess 2000 Project.
This edition features twenty-eight pieces of prose and poetry for each of the four seasons. While the original drew heavily from Greek mythology, this revised and expanded edition includes many new pieces from Celtic mythology.
Each section features a song for the goddess of light, a litany for the associated elemental creature, poems inspired by tarot cards, and love spells in the ancient poetic form of the charm. A four-part Goddess Instruction Manual is woven throughout the book, with lessons drawn from each season. Twenty-five of the poems have been set to music in an evocative and powerful CD that accompanies this book.
About the Author:
One of the leaders of the contemporary earth spirituality movement, Patricia Monaghan (1946 - 2012) had spent more than 20 years researching and writing about alternative visions of the earth. Raised in Alaska, where much of her family still lives, she considered herself blessed to have learned the ecology of the taiga, the subarctic forest, in her youth. She was a writer and reporter on science and energy-related issues before turning her attention to the impact of mythic structures on our everyday lives.
The worldwide vision of the earth as feminine--as a goddess, called Gaia by the Greeks--led her to recognize the connection between ecological damage and the oppression of the feminine in Western society. Much of her work since that time had explored the question of the role of feminine power in our world, in an inclusive and multicultural way.
An avid traveler, Patricia had researched earth spirituality and goddess worship on three continents, and traveled widely in Europe, especially in Ireland. She held dual US/Irish citizenship and edited two anthologies of contemporary Irish-American writing.
Patricia was member of the resident faculty at DePaul University's School for New Learning in Chicago, where she taught science and literature. She passed from this world in November 2012 and is survived by her husband, Dr Michael McDermott.
