It was wonderful to revisit this book and remember how essential it is that women (and men) find their own spiritual path, regardless of how it looks to others. As women, we have a specific wall to scale - our patriarchal culture, even though it has evolved quite a bit in both Kidd's and my lifetime, still has an oppression that is centuries old. We can't ignore the deepest ingrained sexism and misogyny that lurks everywhere. We don't have to make it the focus of our lives, but it is essential to remember that it exists and that it affects us.Kidd has some great stories of how she handles this oppression, from making impromptu rituals, to traveling to sacred sites of the Ancient Goddess. This is a wonderful book for any woman who is leaving her religious upbringing and finding her own path.
