Provides us with well-tested tools for trying to change our reality. Starhawk's example serves to show us that we are NOT powerless. ( )

I don't believe the magic stuff, of course, but I like her sincerity with her politics, and I found her religious faith touching rather than repulsive (except for the magic parts). ( )

A very interesting book, and relevant to our times. A discussion of how magic and spirituality can come together with activism and politics. ( )
