3 Atalla, Dorothy

conversations with the Goddess : Encounter at Petra, place of Power

First Edition
Soft Cover

First edition, stated. Minor edgewear and several neatly underlined passages of text, otherwise a very nice copy. From the publisher:" On a January day in the depths of mid-western winter Dorothy Atalla expected more of the same: snow , ice and gray skies. But when she lay down on her living room carpet to relax with music, she had an experience which changed her life. Inexplicably, a vision of a radiant and beneficent female presence appeared to her. This astonishing event was only the beginning of a journey she could never have imagined in her wildest dreams. That vision foreshadowed the dialogue with a deity which is the essence of this book. Conversations with the Goddess swiftly evolves from a personal story into a universal story in which a feminine Presence speaks about the role of the sacred Feminine in the future. She also speaks of the past, revealing a panoramic view of a time in which the Goddess was revered not only at Petra but also throughout the ancient world. Her story is a multiplicity of strands which she deftly weaves together, creating a tapestry that spans immense time frames in earth s evolution. As her tale progresses, people from the deep past step forward to tell about their lives and their relationship with the Goddess. And a fascinating group of characters they are from Zillah, slave woman, to Hayyan al-Shubri, high priest who serves the chief goddess of Petra. Woven into the dialogues are lively commentaries about Petra as a cosmic power point, women as agents for planetary evolution, and restoration of ancient Goddess knowledge and women s mysteries. Other threads in this weaving are also relevant to modern women: woman s innate spiritual power, earth s powers and the powers of woman, symbolism in female artifacts and the consciousness which created them, what the dark Feminine really is, correction of misperceptions about the nature of the Great Goddess, and a path toward balance of the divine Feminine and the divine Masculine."

The Obsession: Reflections on the Tyranny of Slenderness
USA
HarperTrade
1982

Soft Cover
Good





Some edgewear, spine crease and age toning of pages, otherwise still a good reading copy. From the back cover:"The Obsession is a deeply committed and beautifully written analysis of our society's increasing demand that women be thin. It offers a careful, thought provoking discussion of the reasons men have encouraged this obsession and women have embraced it. It is a book about women's efforts to become thin rather than to accept the natural dimensions of their bodies--a book about the meaning of food and its rejection."
