Feminist Spirituality - The Goddess

Circle Network Book Review - Jailbreaking the Goddess - A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality by Lasara Firefox Allen, Published by Llewellyn Books, $22.99 US

This is a fascinating and new 5 fold model to replace the traditional 'maiden, mother and crone' 3 fold aspects of the goddess.

The five new aspects introduced in this book are:

Femella - The Child
Potens - Woman of Power
Creatrix - She Who Creates
Sapientia - Woman of Art and Wisdom
Antiqua - The Ancient One

Questing and questioning as part of the goddess path and this book questions us so that we think for ourselves and work closely with the goddess on an intimate level. The rituals provided in the book are excellent, showing the author's expertise in this field, from dedication, guided visualisation, rites of passage, journaling with the goddess, and advancing as a practitioner. The author, Lasara Firefox Allen is a family traditions witch and a second generation ordained pagan priestess and this book is suitable for both beginners and experienced practitioners.

I liked the subject matter and the newly introduced 5 eras of a women's life. The author, a highly experienced and competent goddess practitioner gives us of her vast knowledge so that it feels like we have had a personal workshop. If you would like to work with the goddess either alone or in a group setting, this is the book for you! Review Wendy Stokes
