Book Description

July 5 2004 Circle of Stones
Long ago before the patriarchal period, in many places on Earth, the Goddess was worshipped. Circle of Stones draws us into a meditative experience of the lost Feminine and creates a space for us to consider our present lives from the eyes of women's ancient culture and ritual. Incorporating the most ancient symbol of spirituality-the circle of stones-Duerk weaves stories, dreams, and visions of women to lead each reader into a personal yet archetypal journey, posing the reflective question, "How might your life have been different if . . ."

Complete with reading group guide.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for every woman! Sept. 11 2002
This book reads like poetry. It is deeply lyrical and has a flow to it like a dreamy, winding stream of music. It draws you in then goes inside of you, affecting your heart and ultimately your soul. There are moments of tears, moments of smiles and moments when you will say, "Ah, I understand that." You simply can't read this book and leave without being changed by it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A touchstone for women on a journey Dec 15 2001
My process for ingesting this book was much like a holiday with the family: I gourged myself on everything I could get to, then grazed the rest of the day until I had consumed too much at once. I started out being frustrated by Ms. Duerk's writing style; but as I settled in, I became engulfed by the rhythm of the words, leading me to their wisdom. I realized that the writing style was necessary to slow me down enough to become immersed. "Circle of Stones" is the touchstone I've needed to start standing on my own in my own journey. I'm making a gift of this to several of my women friends.

5.0 out of 5 stars For every woman who has ever had the blues Oct. 27 2001
This book really put many of my feelings and ideas into perspective. It is a must for any woman who has ever suffered from depression. The first chapter was a little difficult as Judith Duerk builds the foundation for her Jungian philosophy of the lost archetype of the Great Mother. The following chapters flowed like honey through some pretty difficult concepts.
The philosophy of accepting "down time" and the lost art of slowing down to smell the flowers, is desribed and re- illuminated. A beacon of hope and understanding to any woman who wonders why they can't perform at 100% every day.
The supportive image of the woman's lodge where the Great Mother in all of us expresses herself, is comforting. The process where we individuate ourselves from the Great Mother really helped me accept both my masculine and feminine traits.
If you have ever put a career on hold, or struggled with the decision to choose betwenn a family and a career this book is for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Circle of Stones March 24 2004
This book is an excellant one to use for women's indepth retreats.
It aids in healing our negative memories. The group would focus on how to expand their horizons, challenge their mind, inspire their spirit while nourishing the soul. It is a good book for a multi-generational women's group. This book helps us to find the path to healing.

By A Customer
With a combination of dreams and real life experiences, the author takes you down a path that many of us have walked before but never could give a name to. I have read this book many times, and many times, I am still moved by an empathy to the imagery given that can only come from the feminine. To find someone else give a name and a place to the 'void', and in turn, show you the way out exists without a 12-step program and a help-group, is an amazing feeling. Though the book is geared for a woman's group, it is not necessary in the least to have one to enjoy it 100%.
