About this product
- DescriptionIdentifying the four key points at which the paths of spirituality and feminism seem to divide - vowing silence or finding voice, relinquishing ego or establishing self , resisting desire or reclaiming the body, and enclosure or freedom - the author sets out to discover t only the sources of these conflicts, but how they can be reconciled. Flinders deals with the alienation that women have experienced t only from themselves and each other, but from the sacred. She finds inspiration in the story of 14th-century mystic Julian of Norwich and her direct experience of God, in India's legendary Draupadi, who would t allow a brutal physical assault to damage her sense of personal power, as well as in Flinders's own experiences as a meditation teacher and practitioner. Flinders reveals that spirituality and feminism are t mutually exclusive at all.
