The Second Enlarged Edition of Judith Laura’s Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century: from Kabbalah to Quantum Physics has just been published. The book, released in January 2008, includes all the material in the original 1997 edition with additional material in some sections, plus several entirely new features, including a Foreword by Rachel Pollack, author of more than a dozen books on spiritual topics.
Widely praised for its innovation and clarity, Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century by Judith Laura explores concepts guiding contemporary Goddess spirituality. It also examines the history of Jewish Kabbalah and Western Esoteric Qabalah, exposing their biases and proposing a more gender-balanced version that links back to the Goddess Tree of Life. The book also explores the similarities between Goddess concepts and quantum physics and cosmology, and has meditations and rituals to help put theory into practice.
In her Foreword to the Second Enlarged Edition, Rachel Pollack writes:
“This remarkable book manages to say more than many works on these subjects four or five times its size. What’s more, what it says is not just clear and lucid, and stocked with information, it also is valuable for women and men living their lives today....Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century is a rare book, a kind of sacred quest of ideas. We can all give thanks that Judith Laura has undertaken it, and fulfilled it with such dedication.”
Here’s a sampling of original edition reviews:
