Of Women and Wolves, and the evolving democratic spirituality of now:
As Caroline sets forth to Malta for the Equinox and Turkey for the Eclipse, she welcomes Guneli Gun, Turkish author of Scheherazadian novel "On the Road to Bagdad." who has said, "In pre-Islamic Ottoman Empire, the predominant deity was She-Wolf." Time to invite her back. And with the return of She-Wolf let’s stir up some pertinent fun trouble – Might "goddess," be too male, modern and limited a concept? Let’s release the entire anthropomorphic view of the Divine.. either no image "Allah," or many, the phatasmagoria of constantly shape-shifting syncretic animism… She-Wolf offers a good place from which to spiral out, re-claim collaborative woof, and spiral back home.
