 The Feminine Spirit.

This month, we're "Celebrating the Feminine Spirit." Our contributing authors have provided us with a wonderful and diverse compilation of thought and insights on the subject of the Divine Feminine and Goddess Spirituality. Our Feature Articles include such themes as understanding and calling upon the help and guidance of the many Feminine Faces of God; honoring, nurturing and connecting with our own innate Goddess wisdom and power; and celebrating the Divine nature of feminine friendships and sisterhood.

May peace and joy be yours this December as you celebrate the Feminine Spirit!
