Feminine Wisdom.

This month, we're exploring "Feminine Wisdom and Spirituality." We're learning about the "Goddess," the feminine face of God, and discovering Her energies--love, nurturing, healing, wisdom, and guidance. Her Divine energy offers the perfect balance to the Masculine energy of our planet. A balance desperately needed during this time of deeply disturbing world events.

As Reverend Laurie Sue Brockway, one of this month's contributing authors, so eloquently explains: Celebrating "The Mother" along with "The Father" is the path to wholeness for each individual woman and man and the path to healing the imbalances of our planet.

We can come to know and understand the Goddess in Her myriad forms and expressions, in various cultural and religious traditions, throughout history and time. She is the Divine Mother, the Sacred Feminine, Mother of God, All There Is, Divine Love, Mother Earth, Divine Wisdom. Her name is Mary, Aphrodite, Venus, Kwan Yin, Tara, Gaia, Isis, Lakshmi, Athena, and Patchamama, to name a few...

This month's contributors offer us a rich collection of thought on the Divine Feminine, exploring such themes as: searching for the Goddess, praying to Her, worshiping Her, hearing Her wisdom, and practicing and invoking Her presence.

May peace and joy be yours as you honor your feminine wisdom!
