Journeys with the Divine Feminine


Journeys with the Divine Feminine By Detta Darnell, Doreen Devoy Hulgan, Sarah McCrum, Mary Louise Malloy, Elizabeth Russell, C. Ara Campbell, Andrea Pollard
2019 | 267 Pages | ISBN: 1693212226 | PDF | 8 MB
JOURNEYS WITH THE DIVINE FEMININE 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. You even may feel freer to walk some paths you may have 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) The women’s 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. Collated and edited by author Sue Fitzmaurice, here are two dozen souls laid bare, with all the courage and generosity of spirit that it takes to share one’s deepest self with the world. Authors: Lynne Meyer, Andrea Pollard, Maggie Pinsent, Rema Kumar, C. Ara Campbell, Judi Hobbes, Marian Hamel-Smith, Stella St Clare, Sarah McCrum, Detta Darnell, Sue Fitzmaurice, Stacey Phillips, Swati Nigam, Deb Steele, Martrice Endres, Dianne Graham, Alison Smith, Maddison Bee, Tia Christiansen, Allison Gentle, Melanie C. Toppin, Mary Louise Malloy, Elizabeth Russell, Doreen Devoy-Hulgan.

English | ISBN: 168571062X | 2022 | 164 pages | PDF | 20 MB
We are all perpetually holding ourselves together. Our breath, our blood, our food, our spit, our shit, our thoughts, our attention-all tightly held, all the time. Then at death we let it all out, oozing at once into the earth and gasping at last into the ether.
