A remarkable collection of essays, poems, and art by scholars who have researched Her, artists who have envisioned Her, women who have known Her in their personal story--and combinations of all those capacities. All have spoken with Her and share something of their communion in this anthology.
"The Gorgon Medusa presents herself to us here and now, requiring us to be fully present, to listen deeply-past the noise of accumulated judgments-to the Ancient Wisdom that is our true inheritance. She reminds us of our mortality as the Great Awakener, and encourages us to reclaim whatever has been silenced or diminished within us. We are admonished to have the courage to speak what is true, to trust ourselves to hold her gaze and know we will not be turned to stone." -Joan Marler, excerpt from the Preface
