Reviews

A perfectly imperfect read for a moment of existential reckoning with masculine conceptions of spirituality, this book gleefully reminds us how much feminine energy lies bubbling underneath patriarchal systems, barely concealed, and nearly ready to burst free. -- Library Journal

"Any book that can take us on a gloriously illustrated magic carpet ride through history, mythology, religion, patriarchy, feminism, climate change, rape culture, #MeToo, and even sex between Mary Magdalene and Jesus, and leave us laughing, crying, raising our fists, and devoting the rest of our lives to love and the shevolution, deserves a place in the great libraries of the world. All hail Marisa Acocella!" -- Elizabeth Lesser, cofounder of Omega Institute and author of Broken Open and Cassandra Speaks
