From the Back Cover
The approach to the twenty-first century has seen an upheaval in human consciousness. Money and power are no longer enough to safety out deepest needs. Our growing thirst for wholeness has led us to reclaim the spirituality of the past, the Elder Faiths of our Pagan ancestors.
While rooted in ancient tradition, Paganism is a living religious movement. It is a way of life which teaches reverence for all creation. Paganism reflects a concern for our planet which is unparalleled among other modern belief systems.
In 'Phoenix From the Flame', Vivianne Crowley introduces Paganism today, its history and its many modern forms. A wealth of practical and insightful advice sheds new light on what it means to be a Pagan in today’s changing world.
Author of the best-selling 'Wicca: The Old Religion in the New Age', Vivianne Crowley is a priestess, a teacher of the Pagan way and a leading figure in the revival of Western Paganism. She has a doctorate in psychology and has trained in transpersonal therapy.
