Sacramento, CA, June 03, 2016 –(PR.com)– Jailbreaking the Goddess has been released by Llewellyn early in response to high demand. A formal book launch is planned for July and review copies and interview opportunities are available beginning June 1.
Using a model that promises to turn traditional feminist scholarship on its head, Lasara Firefox Allen rejects the archetypal divinity systems that are tied to female biology and physical stages of life. The fivefold model presented by Allen welcomes all women, regardless of biology and liberates the female experience from the shackles of the reproductive model. 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 is a delicious tool for dismantling (and reimagining) the way we think about women’s spirituality and power. [The] fivefold goddess model honors the divine nature in all women, regardless of age, ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, race, and economic status. This is an exciting, smart, and practical approach to liberating the mind, body, and spirit.”–Laurie Lovekraft, Reclaiming Witch, Huffington Post columnist
“A fantastic and sorely needed contribution to feminist spirituality discourse.“–Niki Whiting, MA, co-founder of Many Gods West
“Lasara Firefox Allen delves deep into the ways in which colonialist language has shaped our experience of the Divine Feminine for centuries and she meets a need that has risen in the feminist spiritual movement for years.”–Suzanne Sterling, founder of Voice of Change, co-founder of Off the Mat, Into the World

“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!”
