Mysteries Of The Dark Moon

I was and am very pleased with this book.. It is well written with thouhtful insights. The history of the rise and fall of the Goddess with it reference to the Lunar Cycles really gives insight to where our world is heading today into this next century... Demtra George did a greyt job compacting a lot of information into an easy to read and understand book... It has been very helpful to me and given me much to meditate on... Anyone interested in learning about or Following the path of the Dark Goddess will love this book.. PegM

A shift in thinking

Every once in a while I come across a book that causes a shift in my views, and this book stands out as one of those books. Don't let the word "dark" turn you away. In this case, the dark refers to the hidden, to the retreat into the self for purposes of healing, and the time between death and rebirth. Not to the evil that "dark" later became and that I too associated it with. Demetra George makes an excellent case for the dark goddesses: how they were once revered as powerful and benevolent keepers of natural laws and as the patriarchy and Christianity become more prominent, misunderstanding caused them to morph - in the minds of the people - into something they were not. According to George, repressing and ignoring what they used to represent to us causes humanity to express the resulting lack and imbalance in a harmful way, and she provides relevant examples of particular types of dark Goddess energy as well. eg - do you feel as though you cannot change anything and that everything is out of your control? Maybe you need to explore a relationship with the Fates...the sections on Hekate and Demeter and Persephone are excellent. She's also done her homework in a way that most authors of esoteric books do not, and she uses an engaging writing style. Thanks for writing this book, Ms. George. It's a valuable part of my collection, one of my favorites on that particular bookshelf in fact, and your ideas have helped me spiritually quite a bit.

Revealing the Mystery

Demetra George has done it for me in this book.I couldn't put it down.I was absolutely intrigued with her theory on why the godess disappeared,and what impact it had on our lives and the changes we needed to face.She talks about the skills we needed to develop ,in order to cope without her presence in our lives.After each chapter she gives the reader challenging questions to consider and I felt myself reconsider the myth I was holding about patriarchy and the essence of what it was meant to be.A great book for your women and men friends for christmas,who always have had in interest in the moon,astrology,anthropology,history and godesses.

I can almost recite this book from memory

Once in a while, you come across a truly transformational book--for me, it was this book. George postulates an intriguing theory (that I won't spoil by discussing) about the rise of patriarchy and the present return of the Goddess into current consciousness. She explores the meaning of the "dark times" in every woman's life, when the past is dying and the future not yet emerged, that we confront in things as simple as a birthday anniversary. Her section about the significance of various Dark Goddess aspects --particularly her comprehensive study about the much-misunderstood Goddess Hekate--is worth the price of the book alone. Her third section deals with the mysteries that every mother and daughter are called on to face in one form or another, as symbolized by the Demeter-Persephone story. The central message of the book, that the Dark Moon times of any woman's life are a treasure-trove of untapped inner wealth and spiritual growth, is clearly and compellingly argued. An immensely rewarding and thought-provoking book that I treasure and re-read on a regular basis.
