The first time that I experienced circle being cast was in a college
class - yes, it was in California. The textbook that we used was
this book; the Once and Future Goddess. It's a fabulous introduction
to the past; mixing theory, mythology, art history, anthropology,
feminism, and archeology. It is a wonderful book for those of us
who are artists - it contains the missing beginning years of the
human creative and spiritual process - something which is usually
relegated to a mere 8 pages in most art history books. No really,
take a look next time you're at a bookstore.
It is relatively easy to get through, especially if you're interested
in art history or anthropology, and is a good overview of numerous
cultures and beliefs. If you want to know where we are now you have
to try to understand where we have been.
