Description

Many today feel the need to restore a magical, spiritual ground to human existence. One of the most visible responses to this need has been the rise of contemporary pagan Witchcraft, and one of its most interesting voices, Reclaiming. This community was formed over twenty years ago, by feminist Witch Starhawk and friends, to teach others about goddess spirituality and reinvented pagan rituals. It has since succeeded in developing an independent spiritual tradition, fostered partly by the success of Starhawk's The Spiral Dance and other books, and now has sister communities throughout North America and Europe. Enchanted Feminism presents the first in-depth study of this important community and spiritual tradition from a consistent gender perspective. In a unique interdisciplinary approach, Dr Salomonsen adopts the perspectives of both social anthropology and theology to analyse the beliefs and practices of Reclaiming witches. Among many issues, she considers their spiritual search for the 'Real', their renunciation of patriarchal religions and attempts to build a new religious identity, their use of ritual and feminine symbols for the divine, and their involvement with feminist-anarchist politics. The results of her research provide challenging and insightful reading.
