Widely covered in the international media, Time recently published her challenge to the world’s faiths to lead the way in the fight for the human rights and dignity of women as one of America’s leading voices. Curott was the Vice Chair of the 2015 Parliament of the World?s Religions and creator of the historic 2015 Inaugural Women’s Assembly. She is founder of the Temple of Ara, the world’s oldest shamanic Wiccan congregation. Curott received her degree in philosophy from Brown University and her Juris Doctor from New York University. Her next book, WICCA, Awaken the Divine Magic Within, was released on November 2018 for Hay House.
