Join us at Wicked Grounds for the first Jailbreaking the Goddess event in San Francisco! Lasara will be offering an hour long introductory workshop on the fivefold goddess (a central element of Jailbreaking), an author’s q and a – you can ask her questions about the material, about her writing process, start a discussion about smashing patriarchy, or ask her what her favorite Wicked Grounds drink is. After the Q and A, Lasara will stick around to sign your books.
The fun goes down on July 25, 2016! Join us in welcoming Jailbreaking to San Francisco!

Jailbreaking the Goddess is a revolutionary revisioning of the feminine divine. Where the Maiden, Mother, and Crone archetypal system is tied to female biology and physical stages of life, the fivefold model presented here welcomes all women and liberates the female experience from the shackles of the reproductive model.
In a woman’s lifetime, she will go through several different cycles of beginnings, potential, creation, mastery, and wisdom. Join Lasara Firefox Allen as she explores the nature of these five archetypes, gives examples of what areas of life each presides over, and explores which goddesses fit within each archetype. Jailbreaking the Goddess shows how to begin building relationships with the different archetypes and provides simple rituals for recognition, transition, and invocation. This fivefold model is a new system that embraces the powerful, diverse, and fluid nature of the lived experience of women today.
Jailbreaking the Goddess: A Radical Revisioning of Feminist Spirituality is an important contribution to the writings on Goddess tradition and feminist spirituality. Allen, a second-generation Witch, brings the tradition firmly into the twenty-first century. I love her political savvy, her sensitivity around issues of diversity and cultural awareness and appropriation, and her unabashed celebration of pleasure, sensuality, and life!

Jailbreaking the Goddess
– an introductory workshop –
Get to know the fivefold goddess, a flexible, multivalent model for the feminal divine. Femella, the child; Potens, the powerful; Creatrix, the maker; Sapientia, the wise one; and Antiqua – the old one offer opportunities to know and understand the divine feminal current, to understand our own complexity. We will also discuss collective liberation, the perils of the law of attraction, and the kind of magick that is, at heart, a women’s mystery.
The workshop will be followed by a Q and A and book signing.
