About the Book
Qadesha D’vora K’lilah bat Shachar, daughter of the Morning Star, travels prehistoric pathways as an archaeologist of woman’s wisdom. She honors her ancestors with offerings and praise, meditates deep in the earth, listens to trees, sleeps with the ocean, watches the moon, responds to the whales’ call. Born into both Jewish and Norse lineages, currently grounded in San Francisco and deeply rooted in California, D’vora K’lilah is ordained as a psychic healer (1984), initiated as a tantrika (2005), and has received smicha as Kohenet (2009). She is the founder of Shuv Tamid, a temple for Asherah (2006), Kohenet with Mishkan Shekhina (2007); and served as part-time clergy for One Shul and Aleph Tikshoret. She has written two books revisioning Jewish text and practice, and is passionate about reclaiming the mythic origins of contemporary narratives as a way to create post-patriarchal paradigms.
