  • Dianic Print Resources

    This List is going to get looooooooooooong. I'm going to just give it a start

    The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries: Feminist Witchcraft, Goddess Rituals
    by Zsuzanna Budapest -- The primary resource.

    Women's Rites, Women's Mysteries: Creating Ritual In The Dianic Wiccan Tradition by Ruth Barrett -- I haven't read this one but it's generally regarded as on almost equal footing with Z's book.

    The Grandmother of Time: A Woman's Book of Celebrations, Spells, and Sacred Objects for Every Month of the Year by Zsuzanna Budapest -- I got this from a lady here at MW. Thanks hon! I loved it

    Diane Stein's Guide to Goddess Craft by Diane Stein -- I have an earlier version of this book. It wasn't one of my favorites, but if you are starting, it's a good place.

    Casting the Circle: A Women's Book of Ritual by Diane Stein -- This is probably one of the best books on this list.

    All Women Are Healers: A Comprehensive Guide to Natural Healing -- A great resource.

    A Wisewoman's Guide to Spells, Rituals and Goddess Lore by Elisabeth Brooke -- This is my favorite book on the list. The guided meditations in it are amazing.

    Women Healers : Portraits of Herbalists, Physicians, and Midwives by Elisabeth Brooke -- Another great one.

    Medicine Women : A Pictorial History of Women Healers by Elisabeth Brooke -- Interesting, but I like Women Healers a little better

    A Woman's Book of Shadows: Witchcraft: a Celebration by Elisabeth Brooke -- This is okay, but the Wisewoman's guide was better for me.

    Goddess Spirituality Book by Ffiona Morgan

    Mysteries of the Goddess: Astrology, Tarot and the Magical Arts by Ffiona Morgan

    Grandmother Moon: Lunar Magic in Our Lives--Spells, Rituals, Goddesses, Legends, and Emotions under the Moon By Z Budapest

    Healing Wise by Susun Weed (and any other book in her series is great too!)

    Wild Girls: The Path of the Young Goddess by Patricia Monaghan

    Goddess Path and Goddess Companion (2 books) by Patricia Monaghan

    All books by Barbara G. Walker
    All books by Carol P. Christ
    All books by Marija Gimbutas -- note that while some of these authors have been "discredited" for one reason or another, real or imagined, there is still value in them to the Dianic and anyone who finds values in the stories we tell ourselves.
    All books by Merlin Stone
    All books by Barbara Ardinger


    Will write more later! Feel free to add your links.

    "The Triple Goddess as Maiden, Mother and Crone, is a relatively new concept which was made popular during the 20th century. Hekate is today most often equated to the Crone aspect of this triplicate archetypal image, but this idea of Hekate as Crone Goddess is one which would have been completely alien to the people of ancient Greece. The only possible explanation for the continued association today is that somehow the darker, scarier aspects of Hekate has been equated to wisdom in old age, which is, when you think about it rather ludicrous." -- Sorita D'Este.

      It is a good one, but it would go in the Womanpath reading thead that I haven't made yet. Technically, according to Shekhinah herself, she is not Dianic and Ariadne's Thread wasn't meant to be a Dianic text.

          Don't be sorry hon. To be honest, I got nervous when I saw this thread had any replies. Your response was quite welcome!

            Thanks! I think you're doing a wonderful job on providing these resources. Some of these books I've never heard of and, as a Dianic, I find it wonderful and informative. Thank you!

                  The closest thing I can think of Clan of the Goddess by C.C. Brondwin. It's not exactly what you are looking for, I don't think, but it was the first thing that popped to mind.

                          I so wish I had the money to buy more books. There is quite a few here that I am pretty sure are on my Amazon wishlist. I've said it before and I'll say it again...having no money sucks!!

                            I added these to the original post, along with a few more. I hope you don't mind.

                              I've just gotten "Women's Rites, Women's Mysteries" and so far have enjoyed it in terms of designing ritual whether Dianic or no.
                              Om Namah Shivaya.
