I am primarily an author, and have written thirteen books, both fiction and non-fiction, including the classic book on Goddess spirituality,The Spiral Dance, and my ecotopian novel The Fifth Sacred Thing. My latest nonfiction is The Empowerment Manual: A Guide for Collaborative Groups, and forthcoming in February, 2016 is City of Refuge, the long-awaited sequel to The Fifth Sacred Thing. I have also consulted on and written commentary for three major documentaries produced by the National Film Board of Canada: Goddess Remembered, Burning Times, and Full Circle. Director Donna Read Cooper and I formed Belili Productions in 1993 and made two documentaries together: Signs Out of Time: The Story of Archaeologist Marija Gimbutas, and Permaculture, The Growing Edge. I am currently working with Yerba Buena Films to bring my novels to the screen, and have written a screenplay and pilot as well as other spec scripts. Along with writing, I also teach permaculture design—an ecological approach to designing broadacre, urban and social systems, and am developing a model of carbon-sequestering ranching on 40 acres in Sonoma County.
