Goddess Calling Review
Karen Tate puts forward some very interesting ideas of how an eco-feminist spiritual ecology might come about. She begins by giving us a perspective on “where we are now” taking the American model of politics. I think many people who do not live in America may find it illuminating as although there is that mentality in places, here in Britain, it’s nothing like all-pervading as it seems to be in the US. Tate talks of this attitude as a patriarchal one and that seems appropriate. She wants us to get to a feminine approach and way of doing life and the book is about making the move from the patriarchal to the feminine. It’s illuminating, amusing and worrying when Tate shows us the similarities between matriarchal and patriarchal traditions and American politics today.

She reminds us that Isis bestowed right to rule on pharaohs and their rule was under the laws of the Goddess Ma’at. For me, coming from the British tradition this rings true. We call the goddess Sovereignty and she has always granted kingship to her mate – not he to her! – but only after she had tested him to see if he was up for the job. The idea of doing that with politicians and presidents makes you think! It would require a great deal of the people who do the testing and electing. What do you do if there are no candidates that are fit for the job, none who succeed in the tests? That’s certainly something the goddess has to face up to and we would need to take lots of advice and leaves from her book in how to do it. Tate is right when she says we are standing at a crossroads with the goddess Hecate (Morgan to us of the British tradition) and it’s well worth remembering Hecate’s attributes and how she deals with folk who do not work with her.

Eco-spiritual-feminism. Not a term I’d heard before but one we most definitely need if we are to face the crisis threatening our planet. In a series of powerful essays, Karen Tate explores the relationships between politics, gender issues, spirituality and activism. Reclaiming Goddess in our lives is very much about reclaiming healthy, balanced, sustainable relationship with everything else on this planet. For the weary activist courting burnout (and I fear that’s the majority of us) this book is a real lift and contains a lot of much needed hope and inspiration.
There is a section of meditation working with Goddess imagery – meditation is a rather personal thing so whether the exact content will work for you is impossible to predict, but if you know how to take and adapt things to suit, there’s a wealth of raw material here and inspiration for approaches to meditation.
One of the things I especially liked is that the author does not talk about patriarchy versus feminism as a gender war issue. She’s very clear that patriarchy is frequently supported and enabled by women, and that feminism is frequently supported by men. I’m starting to feel like we need a new language to emerge from this, to identify these systems in ways that do not divide genders, but allows us to find allies and recognise that old-style patriarchy is harmful to most of the men caught in it as well as being hugely damaging to women. It takes away from the majority of us, for the benefit of a few power hungry people with sexually oppressive attitudes.
There’s a lot in this book that connects with New Age ideas I’ve seen floating about, only here the ideas are presented with depth and nuance, and that makes a world of difference.

Format: Kindle Edition
I have read a number of books about the Sacred Feminine – and this is definitely the most thorough and inspirational book I’ve read. The author describes a number of Goddess archetypes and mythology, adding knowledge to the history and understanding of Goddess. The first section of the book is compiled of chapters with important messages for the benefit of our planet and showing compassion to all peoples; one could contemplate each of these rich, in-depth chapters for weeks! The second section of the book contains actual meditations, working with various Goddesses– to be used individually or with a group.
One sentence from the introduction summarizes this book well: “Nothing less than peace, partnership, justice, equality and care for the planet and each other are at the heart of this Sacred Feminine wisdom.” The author explains how patriarchal societies have worked to extinguish, or at least diminish, these ideals. But, even more important, she challenges each reader to take action, to bring these values back to earthly life. And, that is the ultimate message of this book!

Format: Paperback
Goddess Calling may be one of the most startlingly political spiritual books you will ever read. All aspects of life, from the base to the beautiful, are boldly and bravely unearthed as the author calls on humanity to embrace tolerance and compassion, achieve balance, and become ONE.

A 'Recovering Catholic' devoted to the Feminine; Karen Tate shares through her 'Sacred Roar' how to discover your inner power, reinforce your connection with the Divine and allow faith to make you fearless!

As Karen questions: “Is Deity beyond gender altogether?” my inner voice speaks “Ultimately, we are all light or dust!”
