“People heal by being able to tell the story, the whole story.”
~Clarissa Pinkola Estes~
“Today we are witnessing an immense longing for relational, mutually empowering feminine qualities at every level of our society—from our politics, to our economics, in our psyche, our cultures, our patterns of leadership, and our theologies, all of which have become far too warlike, competitive, individualistic, mechanistic, and non-contemplative. We are terribly imbalanced.
Unfortunately, the feminine has often had to work in secret, behind the scenes, indirectly. It’s to the church and culture’s own detriment that women haven’t been recognized as leaders.”
~Richard Rohr OFM~
JOURNEYS WITH THE DIVINE FEMININE (See more) is a collection of 24 personal stories of women’s experiences in discovering the Divine Feminine and journeying within to experience it, understand it, and grow from it. You will see yourself reflected here. You will see paths you didn’t know existed, and you may even feel freer to walk some you’ve perhaps been afraid to venture down.
The writers are from Irish, Dutch, German, Scottish, North American, Trinidadian, English, Indian, French, Australian, New Zealand and New Zealand Maori backgrounds, with combinations of Jewish, Christian, Buddhist, Hindu, Pagan, Wiccan, Baha’i and other religious and spiritual practices and traditions. They are writers and artists, therapists and coaches, mothers and grandmothers, academics, yoga teachers, psychics and healers, nurses and salespeople, sisters and daughters.
The re-emergence of the Divine Feminine from oppression, suppression, repression
and ultimately depression, is vital to restoring the balance of this world and all who
live on this planet. Too long, we have been living a lopsided life as the forgiveness,
love and compassion so sorely needed have been lost and are now being resurrected.
~Patricia Iris Kerins (Foreword)
Their journeys are often physical – to sacred places around the world, genealogical – exploring the gifts and wisdom of their ancestors near and far, intellectual, and always emotional. Their experience of the Divine Feminine is necessarily spiritual – encompassing a myriad of different meanings of that term – revealing that the Sacred is rooted in the soil as much as the heavens.
