I recently revisited this book--I think almost 20 years after the first time I read it!--and I still found it incredibly profound. I'm a much different person now, really--I first read it as an angsting teenager desperately searching for non-religious spiritual guidance... preferably mixed in with a dose of feminism and Goddess-affirmation, of course--and I found that in Motherpeace.

On first reading, I read only the Tarot sections and references. That reading took me a long way toward healing and awareness. I'm not sure when the first reading was. I guess around 1988.

I've been using some of the Nobel/Vogel Tarot card meanings and really starting to appreciate the beautiful, clear passages specifically dealing with the Tarot Major Arcana. This is a book that I'd like to add to my bookshelf eventually.
A good friend of mine, introduced me to this book. I also have the tarot cards that go along with this book. Profound, empowering, enlightening and well worth being in my collection.
