Explorations and research have revealed societies that worshiped the goddess and were apparently free of warfare until the end of the Paleolithic era.

Today, many indigenous populations exemplify wisdom, justice, beauty, harmony, and compassion—qualities that have traditionally been identified with the Divine Feminine. 

The Divine Feminine is initiating a crucial new phase in our evolution: urging us to discover a new ethic of responsibility toward the planet, bringing us a new vision of the sacredness and unity of life.
— From “The Divine Feminine: Exploring the Feminine Face of God around the World” by Andrew Harvey and Anne Baring

As new pathways are created through education, collaboration, and activism, monthly women’s groups meet to study, enact rituals, and create community surrounding the sacred feminine. Group rituals are created organically to enable understanding of what she’s all about and how to bring more of her into the world. A few sources for study and discussion are listed below.

Please contact Linda for more information to help you create a women’s group.
