Z Budapest - Dianic Tradition
Crafted From: Santa Cruz County, California
Vox Acct.: 290286
Link ID: 39709
Website Profile: Z Budapest recognized a need for a spiritual dimension lacking in the feminist movement and started the Women's Spirituality Movement. She founded the Susan B. Anthony Coven Number One and the Dianic Tradition, the first feminist witches' coven which became the role model for thousands of other spiritual groups being born and spreading across the nation.
She wrote The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries (Weiser Publishers, 1989) which was originally published in 1975 as The Feminist Book of Lights and Shadows. This book served as the first hands-on book to lead women into their own spiritual/Goddess heritage.
Z was arrested in 1975 for reading Tarot cards to an undercover policewoman. She lost the trial but won the issue, and the law against psychics was struck down nine years later. (See WitchTrial.net) We have Z and her Dianics to thank for all forms of legalized divination and psychic work.
Z has led rituals, lectured, taught classes, given workshops, written articles tirelessly, and published in hundreds of women's newspapers across the country. She has powerfully influenced many of the future teachers and writers about the Goddess.
Today Z lives in the San Francisco Bay Area, traveling a lot, giving workshops and lectures, but always making time to smell the roses. She was the star of her own cable TV show called 13th Heaven (see GoddessKits.com) and acts as the director of the Women's Spirituality Forum, a nonprofit organization sponsoring a monthly lecture series in the Bay Area about the Goddess, spirituality retreats, a Goddess Festival and annual spiral dances on Halloween. Z founded and sponsors the Dianic University Online Goddess College, a vagina-friendly online school for Dianic Wicca and Goddess studies for women. (see GoddessCollege.com)
California Institute for Integral Studies recognized recently Z's contribution to Women's Spirituality Movement.
