Women of the Golden Dawn: Rebels and Priestesses.
Here is the story of four magical women who acted outside the boundaries of accepted codes of behavior and heralded the birth of a new age and a new kind of woman. In the heart of the repressive Victorian era, aristocratic revolutionary Maud Gonne, psychic channel Moina Bergson Mathers, patron of the arts Annie Horniman, and actress Florence Farr formed the heart of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, a secret society whose members included noble laureates George Bernard Shaw and William Butler Yeats.
Through in-depth study of the practice of magic, they worked to purify their spiritual natures and to perfect their own creative powers. Today’s woman can draw from the knowledge, struggles, and triumphs of these uncompromising spiritual foremothers to help achieve her own self-esteem, power, and wisdom.
