She’s definitely my favourite pagan author. I ID as Reclaiming-esque so this shouldn’t be a huge surprise. I love Dreaming the Dark and The Fifth Sacred Thing, and I’m working on reading through a number of her other books currently.
When I read the Reclaiming Principles of Unity, it was like someone had reached into my mind and found my beliefs and then written them down and formed a Witchcraft Tradition around them. Witchcamp had much the same effect.
I started reading Starhawk shortly thereafter, and her words have changed my life. She is a huge inspiration to me. I know a lot of people have a problem with her grasp of history, but it’s something I can overlook because of how inspirational she’s been, and because in her later editions of The Spiral Dance she admits to mistakes made in previous editions.
Currently I’m reading The Twelve Wild Swans, and I can’t wait to see what kinds of changes it inspires in me.
