Carol Christ Goddess Pilgrimage Crete

"Nurture life.

Walk in love and beauty.

Trust the knowledge that comes through the body.

Speak the truth about conflict, pain, and suffering.

Take only what you need.

Think about the consequences your actions for seven generations.

Approach the taking of life with great restraint.

Practice great generosity.

Repair the web."

"This book is an experiment in embodied theology that seeks both to demonstrate the connection of theology to experience and to show the complexity of the relationship between them."
