הנה פסקה שמסכמת את כל מה שמעצבן בנאו-פגאניות המערבית הממוצעת:
Sekhmet. An ancient Egyptian lioness goddess of war, healing, and menstruation, Sekhmet is actively worshipped today among neopagans in Europe and the USA. A temple to her has been built in Nevada. Sekhmet's breath was said to have formed the desert, and she embodies a raw fierceness, a kind of primeval force of survival, growth, and self-realization. At a rebirthing ceremony in which I participated last year, I found myself channeling Sekhmet's power and felt
myself filled with a transformative courage I didn't know I had.
