Availability: Ready to download

An exploration of the connections between feminine consciousness and altered states from ancient times to present day • Explores the feminine qualities of the psychedelic self, ancient female roots of shamanism, and how altered states naturally tap into the female archetype • Discusses feminist psychedelic activism, female ecstatics, goddess consciousness, the dark feminin An exploration of the connections between feminine consciousness and altered states from ancient times to present day • Explores the feminine qualities of the psychedelic self, ancient female roots of shamanism, and how altered states naturally tap into the female archetype • Discusses feminist psychedelic activism, female ecstatics, goddess consciousness, the dark feminine, and embodied paths to ecstasy • Includes contributions by Martina Hoffmann, Amanda Sage, Carl Ruck, and others Women have been shamans since time immemorial, not only because women have innate intuitive gifts, but also because the female body is wired to more easily experience altered states, such as during the process of birth. Whether female or male, the altered states produced by psychedelics and ecstatic trance expand our minds to tap into and enhance our feminine states of consciousness as well as reconnect us to the web of life. In this book, we discover the transformative powers of feminine consciousness and altered states as revealed by contributors both female and male, including revered scholars, visionary artists, anthropologists, modern shamans, witches, psychotherapists, and policy makers. The book begins with a deep look at the archetypal dimensions of the feminine principle and how entheogens give us open access to these ancient archetypes, including goddess consciousness and the dark feminine. The contributors examine the female roots of shamanism, including the role of women in the ancient rites of Dionysus, the Eleusinian Sacrament, and Norse witchcraft. They explore psychedelic and embodied paths to ecstasy, such as trance dance, holotropic breathwork, and the similarities of giving birth and taking mind-altering drugs. Looking at the healing potential of the feminine and altered states, they discuss the power of plant medicines, including ayahuasca, and the recasting of the medicine-woman archetype for the modern world. They explore the feminine in the creative process and discuss feminist psychedelic activism, sounding the call for more female voices in the psychedelic research community. Sharing the power of “femtheogenic” wisdom to help us move beyond a patriarchal society, this book reveals how feminine consciousness, when intermingled with psychedelic knowledge, carries and imparts the essence of inclusivity, interconnectedness, and balance our world needs to heal and consciously evolve.

    The book is well researched and wonderfully written. It flows nicely even though it takes on the challenge of weaving a wide expanse of multi-cultural information into coherency. Ancient cultures have historically left indications that disclosed the use of mind altering substances and techniques as a means by which to understand the human experience, encapsulated as it is, in greater worlds, and to transcend it for brief periods of time.

It flows nicely even though it takes on the challenge of weaving a wide expanse of multi-cultural information into coherency. Ancient cultures have historically left indications that disclosed the use of mind altering substances and techniques as a means by which to understand the human experience, encapsulated as it is, in greater worlds, and to transcend it for brief periods of time. These worlds of our ancestors were not beleaguered by the restrictions and protocols of our contemporary societies. Rather, they were open to the Mystery, and self-empowered, unlike today, when we are still strapped to particular paradigms and indoctrinations installed in our psyches by patriarchal, monotheistic religions, masked as governments. This is an observation, not a judgment. In the telling of these stories, we get a glimpse of a more inquisitive, egalitarian way of life as it was, and a potential of how much more it can be as we begin once again to allow ourselves to build landscapes that embrace these modalities.

Can we please stop linking different ways of seeking the Infinite to what is politically in vogue?! Will Not Waste My Hard-Earned Dollars On This!!! The artwork is beautiful. That is the only bright spot of this publication. Update: I choked through three more essays. I still did not like it. Why are we obsessed with identification with ourselves and the body, either with attachment to it or adversion to it? Gender politics is the focus of this book, fancied up with ingredients to expand consciousness. Sigh...

    Oh Goddess! Where do I start with this book. It was the best book I read last year, and I used quotes to share at events I cofacilitated. This is a must read if you want to work with Goddess energy, the divine feminine, and use herbs of any kind really. Each chapter is written by a different woman, so it feels like a collective ted talk, and I believe it adds comprehensive variety to the topic of using psychedelics and feminine energy.

Each chapter is written by a different woman, so it feels like a collective ted talk, and I believe it adds comprehensive variety to the topic of using psychedelics and feminine energy. The chapters cover archeological and cultural history, examinations of the effects in the western world, and awakening that is currently happening, the western worlds effects on indegeneous communities (which needs to be addressed), where and how people are gathering for these plants, and philosophical and artistic uses and views. A world awaits for you with this book.

    I read this book selectively. Reading an essay, then skipping another. They are significantly diverse and many resonated with me while others didn't catch my interest. I'd recommend the same for other readers. I read this book selectively. Reading an essay, then skipping another.

    This was a satisfying collection of essays ranging from the academic to the mystic, and a good contemporary companion to other anthologies of women's roles in visionary art and writing about psychedelics. I particularly enjoyed the essay by Kathleen Harrison.

    A beautiful collection of essays. So important when the psychedelic field is dominated by men, yet the psychedelic mysteries are seen as feminine. It made me question some beliefs and had many points of view. There is also a delightful panel of visionary art in the centre.
