Women & Spirituality
Title: Women & Spirituality
Author: SPIRIT DVD WOM / NOT RATED
Exploration of the history, repression and resurgence of the women’s spirituality movement.
Goddess Remembered – Part One – is a salute to 35,000 years of pre history, to the values of ancestors only recently remembered and to the goddess-worshipping religious of the ancient past. The Burning Times – Part Two – is a beautifully crafted film and an in-depth look at the witch hunts that swept through Europe just a few hundred years ago. False accusations and trials led to massive torture and burnings at the stake, and ultimately to the destruction of an organic way of life. This film advances the theory that widespread violence against women and the neglect of our environment today can be traced back to those times. Full Circle – Part Three – is a stirring documentary in which authors, teachers, social activists and feminist explore manifestation of contemporary women’s spirituality in the Western world. Drawing on the customs, rites and knowledge of the past, Full Circle envisions a sustainable future where domination is replaced with respect. At the center of these discussions is a reverence for the Earth – a sacred circle which we must protect.
