Exploring the meeting places of feminism and spirituality
on 18 May 2012
This book is vital reading if you are interested in how the life of the spirit and life in the everyday world co-exist. In particular, Carol Lee Flinders writes eloquently and in detail about the mystic tradition, exploring how contemplation and activism are profoundly linked despite appearances to the contrary. First published in 1998, this book is a really useful 'background read' for women interested in the years leading up to the current upsurge of what is sometimes called 'eco-feminism', the active linking of the state and fate of women, how they perceive themselves and are perceived, and the fate of the planet. It is a real delight to read how Carol Lee Flinders came to her own discovery that feminism and spirituality together are necessary companions for women today.
