New York: HarperCollins Publishers. Many feminists have been skeptical about traditional spirituality, and their mistrust has not been entirely unfounded. The forms of self-sacrifice often required by the spiritual life--including silence and suppression of desire--are conditions that have been imposed on women for centuries. But, as Carol Lee Flinders makes clear, spirituality and feminism do not have to be diametrically opposed. Drawing on Western and Eastern spiritual traditions, Flinders traces her own developing awareness of the "mutual necessity" of the two disciplines and makes provocative suggestions about the potential of a feminist movement guided by spiritual principles.
Ford-Grabowsky, Mary. San Francisco: HarperSanFrancisco. The idea for assembling this outstanding anthology of Sacred Voices came to editor Mary Ford-Grabowsky while she was packing up her possessions for a move to a new household. Sorting through her stack of spiritually inspirational quotes written on Post-It notes, it suddenly occurred to her that almost all of the quotes were by men.
The answer, of course, is that it was an easy oversight considering the historical credence given to the masculine perspective of the divine over the earthier, fleshy, relationship-centered perspective of the feminine. Thus began Ford-Grabowsky's quest to assemble an anthology of women's spiritual writing. Fox, Matthew. Meditations with Meister Eckhart. New Mexico: Bear and Company, Inc.

Boston: Butterworth-Heinemann. Written by a business entrepreneur and long-time student of Jungian psychology, this book describes in lay persons' language the essence of the archetypal feminine and its potential for business.
This book is not another treatise on how to get more women into positions of power; neither is it one more critique of what is wrong with masculine perceptions and behavior. Instead, it offers a new respect for the feminine side of everyone's nature, and it explores what it could mean for business if we gave the feminine principle the same kind of attention and support in the workplace that we give to masculine consciousness.

Then every Sunday I send the best of what I find to around 25, subscribers. Courtship really is a harsh petri dish of evolutionary psychology. My observations In general, men pursue beauty while women pursue capability.
And as such, women largely focus on how to appear attractive, while men largely focus on how to appear powerful. Feminists hate this. Roofers hate gravity. Unfortunately this requires some significant changes to humanity, namely: People not having the evolutionary drive to compete for reproduction opportunities. People not having vastly different capabilities. People not having vastly different beauty.
