The Ancient Modern Witch:

TWPT Talks with Marion Weinstein TWPT-1999

Marion Weinstein  Twenty years ago Marion Weinstein was a pioneer in bringing the discussion of Witchcraft back out of the closet and into the public forum. Along with the voices of her fellow pioneers such as Margot Adler, Merlin Stone, Starhawk and Selena Fox the message of the Goddess once again went forth into a world that was dying to hear the words of the Goddess. Marion and her fellow travelers reawakened the desire to seek out the knowledge of the Divine Feminine and to explore the magickal dimensions of life long left to gather dust on the shelves of many lives.
