women have had to channel their strength and power into the role of
muse, priestess, or earth mother—and always in the shadow of male
magicians. This groundbreaking book shatters outdated notions of the
Western magical tradition and presents a new paradigm that celebrates
and empowers the woman magician.
Drawing on thirty years of study and personal experience, Brandy
Williams boldly revisions metaphysics from a female perspective. She
introduces a new Magia Femina—a female-centered exploration of
tradition, history, philosophy, science, culture, theology, and
magic—and shares unique wisdom on how to live authentically as a woman
and as a dedicated practitioner of her craft.
Williams discusses women’s roles in magic and philosophy throughout
history as well as issues of gender, sexuality, feminism, cultural
identity, God as divine feminine, the Qabbalah, and the evolution of
such magical systems as the Golden Dawn and modern Witchcraft.
Offering a complete and workable ritual system based on Egyptian
cosmology, The Woman Magician
invites you to become a
practicing member of the Sisters of Seshat, the first all-female
initiatory magical order since the French Revolution. Experience
powerful hands-on individual and group initiatory rituals, and help
launch this new order into the greater world.
