"The Reflowering of the Goddess is a revelation and a plea. I think it will eventually be regarded as one of the most important and prophetic books of our time. Rich with impressive insights, it documents and explains the emergence of ways of perceiving and interacting with the world that may well affect the very survival of the earth and all life on it..."--Merlin Stone from the foreward
"In this important book, Gloria Orenstein forges a powerful link between ancient history and modern art, showing how our Goddess heritage is today reemerging not only through archeological discoveries and feminist scholarship, but in the stories and images of creative women all over the world."--Riane Eisler, author of THE CHALICE AND THE BLADE
I am available to give slide lectures on topics ranging from The Women of Surrealism to Ecofeminism, Ecofeminist Art, Salons and Salon Women, The Re-Emergence of the Goddess in Women's Art and Lit. of the Seventies and Eighties, Shamanism and Bridget Tichenor.
