Goddess-Revivalist Closes Fall Fisher Center Lectures

Starhawk presents ways to combine the powers of earth-based spirituality with political action

(Oct. 29, 2004) GENEVA, N.Y.—Starhawk, a respected voice in modern Goddess religion and earth-based spirituality, travels internationally teaching magic, the tools of ritual, and the skills of activism. She will give a talk titled “Earth Spirit, Earth Action” at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 17, in the Geneva Room of the Warren Hunting Smith Library at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. Her talk will culminate in a ritual for the Earth on William Smith Green. Part of the Fisher Center lecture series, the event is free and open to the public.

Starhawk draws on nature to explore how the Earth is our greatest teacher and healer, whether we want to heal personal hurts, or heal the wounds society inflicts on Earth and human beings. Seeing connections to Earth as our deepest source of hope, renewal and strength, Starhawk presents ways to combine the powers of earth-based spirituality with political action. Starhawk draws on her experiences as an organizer with Code Pink: Unreasonable Women for Peace, her work with Jewish and Palestinian women in the West Bank and Gaza and her many years as an innovator in the Goddess revival and eco-feminist movements. She is the author or co-author of 10 books.

Founded with a $1 million gift from Emily and Richard Fisher, the Fisher Center for the Study of Women and Men seeks to foster mutual understanding and social justice in contemporary gender issues.
