The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries|
The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries
Author: Zsuzsanna E. Budapest
Publisher: Weiser/Red Wheel
Category: Women's Studies Level: All
The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries is essential for pagans, feminists, and women seeking to learn more about the spiritual path as it relates to the feminine and the Goddess aspects of witchcraft and Wicca. This book is not about reinstating a matriarchy or tearing down patriarchy; it is about women's spirituality and its relationship with politics and lifestyle.
Z Budapest is one of the founding mothers of modern women's witchcraft, beginning with the establishment of Susan B. Anthony Coven in Los Angeles in 1971. She catapulted herself into the media spotlight when she was tried as a witch and found guilty in 1975 after being arrested on Venice Beach for reading tarot cards. She fought the charges and after a nine year battle, won the right for every tarot reader to do so legally.

The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries is a seminal text that contains invaluable information on Dianic witchcraft and spells, including everyday magick, sabbat rituals, and divination methods; a section on how vegetarian theories and politics relate to witchcraft and the feminine aspect; and a good deal of information on goddesses and how the patriarchal religions distorted old myths to serve their own needs. There are several unique and beautiful Rites of Passage for women and men that you don't often find, and Budapest's personal life stories are an equally valuable read, from her escape across the mountains from Communist Hungary to her fight for women's religious freedom upon moving to America.
Women's rights and rites combine in a celebration of the Goddess: divination, spells, rituals, and herstory. The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries is a feminist survival guide teaching individual and group witchcraft, women's health and nutrition for strength and power, and the valuable lessons our foemothers have handed down to us. Read and enjoy! The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries has something something for every mother's daughter.
* This reprint features a new introduction by Z. Budapest, in addition to essays by luminaries such as Starhawk and Merlin Stone.
* Author is an internationally acclaimed Priestess with a vibrant workshop schedule in the U.S. and Europe, including California Institute for Integral Studies.
Author's Notes: This book turned out to blow my mind with its effectiveness, straddling the historical winds and becoming an engine of the rebirth of women's spirituality. This belongs in the mind of every woman, feminist or not. I love the poetry in this book, the shamanic translations I have done from obscure Siberian languages. I love the way Holy Book of Women's Mysteries has a life of its own, and currently is available in my online store.
