Dancing After the Whirlwind: Feminist Reflections on Sex, Denial, and Spiritual Transformationby L J Tessier
Synopses & Reviews
Book News Annotation:
Tessier (philosophy and religion, Youngstown U.) explores the links between a woman's spiritual and sexual identities. Drawing on the experience of three groups of women whose sexuality is routinely denied by society--lesbians, HIV-positive women, and women sexually abused as children--as well as on studies in religion, psychology, and her own life experience, she shows how women can overcome denial by reclaiming the whirlwind of erotic power and seeing it as a sacred force.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
A groundbreaking, healing exploration of women's sexual and spiritual identities. Drawing on the words and experiences of lesbians, HIV-positive women, and women sexually abused as children, as well as on her own life experience, author L.J. Tessier shows how women can claim the wildness within to learn to live with integrity, and to be true to their sexual and spiritual selves.
Includes bibliographical references (p. -245) and index.
