#Nasty Women Writers—Zora Neale Hurston: The Real Deal, by Maria Dintino

#Nasty Women Writers—Zora Neale Hurston: The Real Deal 1891-1960 by Maria Dintino On learning that Zora Neale Hurston died in a county home alone and broke, I felt angry and sad. But after reading Alice Walker’s article In Search of Zora Neale Hurston that appeared in Ms magazine in 1975, I agree with Alice. Zora left no room in her life for pity and “was not a teary sort herself.” Zora was a force and through her writing, we get that.

Meeting the Goddess Lilith

Many years ago I had an encounter with an owl that led me to the Goddess Lilith, catapulting me on the journey that has been my life these past 25 years. In that time, Lilith has been one of my main guides and allies. Can I tell you in one sentence what that means? No. It is too complex and revealing and anyway, the power would be lost in the telling. But I can tell you some things. And in that telling I can understand it better myself. Because that is the way story always works. And that is why we tell stories. Recently I began a class with a group of women around regaining our pure female...

The Importance of Orienting Ourselves

Since the following information has come up recently in multiple divinations both given and received, and seems to be very important for humans at this time on the planet, I decided to share it here for those of you who may want to incorporate it into your practice if you do not already. What we are told over and over again is that we must orient ourselves in space and time. The first thing to do is to orient yourself by finding out where the cardinal directions are in the place where you live, work and do medicine. North, East, South and West. If home, work and where you practice medicine...

        Rachel Carson: A Woman’s Voice for the Planet 1907-1964 by Theresa C. Dintino   Learn more about the #NastyWomenWriters project here When most people think of Rachel Carson, they think of her groundbreaking work Silent Spring which is largely credited for helping to launch the environmental movement and through which she is often said to have “saved the birds.” This “battle cry” book urging us to take a closer look at the use of chemical pesticides led to regulations and restrictions still in place today and the eventual establishment of the Environmental...

#NastyWomenWriters–A Voice that Echoes in My Body: The Prose and Poetry of Adrienne Rich, by Theresa C. Dintino

A Voice that Echoes in My Body The Prose and Poetry of Adrienne Rich American, 1929-2012 by Theresa C. Dintino   Of all the lines written in the English language, the ones that have inspired, moved and meant the most to me are the ones penned by Adrienne Rich. My worn and tattered copy of The Dream of a Common Language, read, loved and turned to so many times, continues to be my favorite book to take off the shelf and revisit. Occasionally, when I remember (or hear as a whisper in my ear) one of the lines from a poem printed in it, my body fills with excitement and deep memory or what...
