    "History and Insight"

    The knowledge transfer in history and comcepts of wicca is invaluable as it helps to understand the foundation and the purpose of the craft. Starhawk provides detailed information on reuniting with nature and learning inner harmony. This reading could have rated five stars if Starhawk hadn't awkwardly ad-libbed so many times.

    "Great!"

    The only negative thing I can say is that it had to end.

    "wiccan history?"

    this is great for wiccan/pagan inspiration. however the history at the beginning is just plain bad. everyone knows now that there was no universal, organized witch cult in Europe that survived to the modern age. we really have to start getting our facts straight if we want to be taken seriously.

    "Earth Magic: Sacred Rituals ...."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Absolutely not. In fact it almost turns a person off of it. Told from a very feminist perspective, spirituality is left out while the emphasis is placed on religion. Though it has 'rituals' in its name the ones presented are nothing more than glorified meditations. Very uninspiring. But, to be fair, I may not have been the target audience and some may find this book to be very good...


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I found the format interesting. It wasn't a book as much as it was a lecture done in a conversational style. Least interesting..was the stance the author took. It is very much a 60's sort of feel with an us against them mentality.


    What aspect of Starhawk’s performance would you have changed?

    Good question. The performance itself is ok


    Was Earth Magic worth the listening time?

    Not in my opinion.


    Any additional comments?

    Scott Cunningham may be a better choice if looking into this area.

    "Too much history"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Would be interesting for people curious about history (herstory).


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Boredom


    Any additional comments?

    Way too much history - turned it off after about what seemed like two hours. Never finished the book. Easy to listen to voice but ultimately of now value if you are already aware of the history and quite frankly I personally dont see the relevance of dredging through the past to 'better understand' where we're at now - why not start with where we are? Here - now - today! Not sure if I can be bothered listening to the rest of it or not....

    "Woo Woo Book"

    This would have been better with a little background music and more of a coffee break discussion atmosphere. I was really interested in what the lady had to say but after a while it was just to much ‘woo woo” mumbo jumbo for me and I lost interest…

    "Making Sense"

    I loved this audio, dispite being put off by what I thought might be Starhawk's over-emotional American style presentation. However, I was delighted to find this a very down to earth (!) and practical 'lecture' of her own pagan world view. This is a talk which makes so much sense when you consider what she has to say: we are of the Earth, and from her we take, and to her we must return, as part of the universal cycle of life. As creatures of the Earth, we are potentially wholly immersed in the magic of the world around us, and Starhawk shows us why and how we can tap into that magic for our own and for the planet's benefit. I gained so much from this Audible purchase, that I just know I will listen again, many times.

    "Too Political"

    I was disappointed to find that although this audiobook has many potentially interesting facets, the author cites too many references to gender politics and at one point uses the word history, then corrects it to 'herstory'. This is the type of silliness that peaked in the 70's/80's and has now matured and become mainstream. It has little relevance to the seeker of spirital truths in the here and now. I want to know how to further my spiritual development using pagan principles. I know it was very very wrong to burn witches who were mainly women, I know men have unfairly dominated many institutions through history. Whilst I'm broadly sympathetic to her grievances, I purchased the audiobook to learn about Earth Magic and should I wish to learn more about the history of gender politics, I will look elsewhere. I suspect that dominion rather than equality is what she really covets. There is also mention of green politics. This is also fine, but the book doesn't seem to credit it's readers/listeners with the intelligence to connect love of Mother Earth with behaving in a respectful manner towards her and voting for/participating in the parties who most reflect these views. The author makes the decision for the reader. This book should be renamed to reflect the political threads running through it. I now need a book on pure wiccan/pagan beliefs/traditions to fill the void left in my collection by this volume. Any recommendations?

    "A bit too gender obsessed"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I liked the part of this book which focused on the connection with the earth - I found this to be quite powerful. However the basis was a bit of a fantasy. The her-story notion was loaded with speculation that the once 'Matri-focal' (NOT matriarchal) society was some sort of feminine bliss (when women had all the power before nasty men corrupted us all) which I just couldn't buy into.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    I liked her voice and pace.


    Was Earth Magic worth the listening time?

    Mostly. Not sure I want to worship the vulva.


    Any additional comments?

    There was too much open to logical questioning from the Alice in Wonderland gender-bias - which sort of defeats the point.

    "Awful"

    She just drones on and on and on.....Its hard to concentrate on what she is saying as you find your mind wondering off to anywhere else.
