TNP73 Charlene Spretnak on Reclaiming PrePatriarchal Goddesses

60 minutes

I'm absolutely thrilled to have Charlene Spretnak on the show today.

Charlene is a prolific author in the fields of feminist women's spirituality, environmentalism, and the interrelatedness of social change movements.

A summary of each of her books can be found here.

The book initially that inspired her to write research into the lost goddess myths of pre-patriarchal Greece is called The First Sex by Elizabeth Gould Davis.

The philosopher Charlene mentioned is Luce Irigaray.

Charlene has provided me with so much material to research and study. If you'd like to hear the speech I gave inspired by her book, Lost Goddesses of Early Greece, check out TNP64.
