Featuring narrative, chants, songs, and rituals, Dreaming the Dark has helped many thousands of women use magic, spirituality, and community to bring about political and social change. This anniversary edition of the best-selling classic includes a new preface reflecting on the fifteen years since the book's original publication.
Dreaming the Dark is [Starhawk's] best book; it offers myths of fulfillment, rituals of healing, an unusual but perhaps ultimately pragmatic cultural perspective, and a vision for survival and growth. --The Bloomsbury Review
"This book is the story of a journey, its author's movement from a place of despair to one of action. . . . It is ultimately a message of hope and optimism, for Starhawk shares not only a vision but tools for personal empowerment, the building of community, and the transformation of culture. . . . A thought-provoking book that is a pleasure to read." --Carol Haber, New Directions for Women
"Reading this book is in itself transformational. . . . You're sure to come away from [Starhawk's] work richer, deeper, and more truly informed." --Pam Pacelli, New Age
"These are recipes for real change, filled with humor and good sense, protected with safeguards against the reassertion of our old habits of using power and against the temptations to overload and burnout." --Judith S. Harrow, Association for Humanistic Psychology Newsletter
"A marvelously empowering and energizing book." --Aunt Edna's Reading List
