One of America’s foremost feminist thinkers, has spiritual awakening after experiencing a “mystical encounter” with Jesus
Naomi Wolf: I had a vision of Jesus




Exclusive: By Torcuil Crichton



Naomi Wolf, one of America’s foremost feminist thinkers, has found a spiritual awakening in God after experiencing a “mystical encounter” with Jesus.
Wolf, best known as the author of the Beauty Myth, a groundbreaking 1991 polemic against the cosmetics industry that radicalised a generation of young women, revealed the cause of a hitherto unexplained mid-life crisis that set her on a “spiritual path”.

In an interview with the Sunday Herald, Wolf spoke publicly for the first time about her vision. Her comments will spark a theological skirmish in the United States and leave her open to further attacks from other feminist critics.

Wolf admitted that, during a therapy session to treat writer’s block, she encountered what she described as a holographic image of Jesus.

“I actually had this vision of Jesus, and I’m sure it was Jesus,” said Wolf. “But it wasn’t this crazy theological thing; it was just this figure who was the most perfected human being that there could be – full of light and full of love.”

More bizarrely, she experienced this as a teenage boy. “I was a 13-year-old boy sitting next to him and feeling feelings I’d never felt in my lifetime,” said Wolf. “[Feelings] of a boy being with an older male who he really loves and admires and loves to be in the presence of. It was probably the most profound experience of my life. I haven’t talked about it publicly.”

Wolf emphasised that her spiritual renewal strengthened her commitment to feminism as her life mission. “I believe that each of us is here to help repair the world,” she said. “My particular mission seems to be about helping women remember what’s sacred about them or what’s sacred about femininity .”

She also expressed apprehension that her faith would be hijacked by religious groups. “I don’t want to be co-opted as the poster child for any religion or any agenda,” said Wolf, who was brought up in a liberal Jewish household. “There are a lot of people out there just waiting for some little Jewish feminist to cross over. I don’t claim to get where this being fits into the scheme of things but I absolutely believe in divine providence now, absolutely believe God totally cares about every single one of us intimately.”

Despite pleas to distance her faith from any religion, her admission to seeing the “child of God” will trigger a theological battle between the American Christian right and the Jewish lobby over the ownership of her soul.

Wolf, a one-time adviser to President Clinton, has been attacked before by the Republican right in 2000 when it was revealed she advised Al Gore to start behaving like an “alpha” male in his presidential campaign.

In America’s fractured feminist movement, Wolf’s pronouncement will be leapt on as further evidence that she has strayed from the mainstream. Wolf has often been verbally mauled by other feminist writers for her embracing thesis of feminism. In a series of successful books, Wolf has projected her own experiences into a universal ideology for women.

Her critics, led by Camille Paglia, accuse her of being a lightweight .

However, among British feminists Wolf’s confession is likely to be met with mild bemusement.

“I can’t say I am too surprised,” said Joan Smith, commentator and author of several feminist studies. “I do recall in one of her earlier books she talked about the universe calling her name. But I have always thought of her as an emotional writer, not an intellectual one.”

In America, finding God is an acceptable resolution to mid-life crisis and, Smith said, there is room within feminism for spiritualism in much the same way as other movements accommodate their own spiritual wings.

Hummmm, is there a pattern emerging here?

The gospel according to Anne Rice
January 22, 2006
Page 1 of 4 | Single page

Author Anne Rice at her $A10.7million mansion in La Jolla, California. Rice has left vampires behind, and turned to Jesus.


Anne Rice has turned her creative attention to the man she refers to as a supernatural hero, Jesus Christ, she tells John Marshall.

Anne Rice could have been dead, maybe should have been dead, not once but twice. First came the diabetic coma in 1998, that sudden descent to death's door after the most basic sort of flu-like symptoms. The coma left her paralysed for a time, unable to think or speak with much coherence, a terrifying and frustrating condition that did disappear over time but led to great despair.

"I should be dead," Rice kept thinking to herself. "A mistake has been made."

Then came the ruptured appendix a couple of years later, another brush with death for the best-selling vampire chronicler, followed by yet another reprieve. And that prompted her to reflect later that this was no mistake, that she had been spared for a purpose, a higher purpose involving her newfound faith in God and a new novel on a far different subject.

"If I had died earlier, I would have left something behind of value," Rice says. "But I trust there is a reason that this has happened instead. I trust that this was the journey I had to make. Sometimes I would receive flashes that this is what I was meant to do. Because I am alive, when the expectation was that I should be dead."

Rice's new novel sits high on the US bestseller lists again, but that is all that seems the same in her life these days. At 64, one of America's most popular authors radiates calmness, happiness and even humility in the aftermath of one of the most startling about-faces in the annals of bestsellerdom. It's adieu to vampires forever, Lestat & friends RIP; hello to the new 21st-century gospel, the life of Jesus as interpreted by Rice.

Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt is the first of a projected three or four novels that Rice hopes will illuminate Jesus and his world in fresh ways drawn from her exhaustive historical research and her voluminous readings, including the 200 different translations of the Bible that she keeps in her $US8 million ($A10.7 million) mansion in La Jolla, California.

When it comes to religion, women are "weaker in spirit" than men and are for religion the backbone, thighbone, anklebone, and most every other body part you can think of other than the strong arm with the whip and the brain.

That is a horrible thing to say! I can't believe anyone thinks like this!!!

I've always wondered how much better off this world would be if women were in charge.

According to Camille Paglia (a feminist), if woman were in charge, we'd still be living short lives in grass huts.

The Plejadians eg look like the most beautiful humans one can imagine tho Jesus could be well from one of the other benevolent human ET races also.

That's how he see's her, as a 13 yr old boy. At least she was brave enough to face that.

I've heard that there is power in just mentioning the name of Jesus...maybe that's why they keep trying to shut out his name from world.
