Elizabeth Cunningham

Always an imaginative writer, as The Return of the Goddess (1992) and The Wild Mother (1993) attest, in Daughter of the Shining Isles, Cunningham now mixes Celtic mythology with the emergent feminist tradition of the Magdalen to create a powerful, spiritually charged visionary novel. Daughter of the Shining Isles gives us a Mary Magdalen for our times: Maeve, a feisty Celt, raised by warrior witches to a life of heroism. When she arrives on a magical Druid island, she meets her cosmic twin (J)Esus of Nazareth. Together they become embroiled in an adventure of passion, betrayal, and human sacrifice. Sure to stir controversy, it brings fresh insight into the lost years of the young man called Esus, and the vital young woman who was his equal. Profoundly moving and often outrageously funny, Cunningham’s new novel is storytelling of the highest caliber. Maeve is sure to claim her place among the great literary heroines of our age.

Gisela Gamper and
Rachel Pollack

Fabrications is a series of photographs composed by Gisela Gamper accompanied by text of Rachel Pollock. In the opening, Pollock states, “Like many women artists, Gamper uses her body as a (literal) ground of being, the necessary source from which all experience must emerge. But she also absorbs experience back into her own form. Instead of exploring how the body inhabits and moves in an alien world, these photos graft the world itself directly onto the artist’s torso, at first through photomontage, and later through computer manipulation of images.”

Pollock continues, “Though the pictures veer toward abstraction they all begin in the artist’s life.”

The book ends with a quote from Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche which points to a message this collection deeply invokes—“The essence of mind is in the heart.”

In this highly readable and practical book, Stephanie Mines shows how persons traumatized by sexual abuse can be healed through the sensitive application of “Expressive Therapy” (the therapeutic use of art-making in all its forms) and by treating trauma as a “sacred wound” on the model of the shaman?s initiatic wounding. The book includes five engaging case-histories of women and men who have worked in this way with the debilitating experiences of substance abuse, overwhelming shame and extraordinary emotional repression and have reclaimed their individuality and force in the world. There is also an insightful account of sexual abuse in an ashram and a chapter on treating sexual abuse in the family. This book offers vital and useful self-help tools for survivors and their families. It also gives clinicians creative new strategies for their clients who have been traumatized.
