in California, April talks and workshops
"Starhawk is an author, activist, and leading voice in earth-based
and feminist spirituality movements. She is an experienced permaculture
design teacher and cofounder of Earth Activist Trainings..."
See her website
for more information.
On her newest book:
Earth Path -- Grounding Your Spirit in the Rhythms of Nature.
(Harper San Francisco, 2004)
" Dear friends, I'm pleased to tell you that my tenth book,
The Earth Path, was released in October '04. The book was inspired
by the realization that even many people who call themselves Pagan
and proclaim nature as sacred are unclear on the processes by which
nature actually works. The Earth Path addresses the profound spiritual
and conceptual disconnect at the root of our environmental destructiveness,
and shows how we can reroot our spirits, our politics, and our day-to-day
life in deep relationship with the Earth. It also includes much
of the synthesis of Earth-based spirituality and practical permaculture
that I've been working with in our Earth Activist Trainings.
If you don't have the money to buy it, request that your local library
order it. If they don't have the money to buy it--well, isn't that
exactly the condition we're all struggling against!
Thanks so much for your support, -- Starhawk

March 19-20 marks the two-year anniversary

within the global antiwar movement to bring the troops home now.
