“Goddess Calling: Inspirational Messages & Meditations of Sacred Feminine Liberation Thealogy”, by Rev. Dr. Karen Tate

I can see that this is going to be a very helpful book for many people – it is well organised and contains readings which are both inspirational and clear in showing values of goddess spirituality. There are also meditations, which fit well with the readings and would do much to further those values in our lives and in society.

The Waters of Life

From the waters of Nu, the primeval ocean of Egyptian myth, to the river Styx, which deceased souls cross on their final journey, from the world-encircling oceanic serpent known as Oceanus or Jormungand, to the celestial river of The Milky Way which flows to the land of the soul, water has always denoted the confines of earthly existence, both at its beginning and at its end, and in both a physical and spiritual sense.

Serket, the Goddess who understands Poisons

We are accustomed to lovely and inspiring creatures associated with the Goddess; from the elegant ferocity of the lioness of Sekhmet to the gentler cat of Bastet, or even the endlessly hypnotic snakes of the Cobra Goddesses. Given the variety of animals that the Ancient Egyptians encountered it is surprising that they should associate a scorpion with a Goddess, particularly a largely benevolent one.

The Scandinavian Cailleach – The”Kælling/Kärring”(1)

Death … then suddenly – a blood-curdling shriekcuts through the air.

The Princess Who Would Not Laugh: The Ancient Goddess as Revealed Through Fairy Tales

Spellbound, almost hypnotized, you float through magic lands of enchantment with fairy princesses, talking frogs, magic cats and candy houses, with Snow White, Hansel and Gretel, Cinderella and a whole host of others. Was it like this for you when you read fairy tales as a child? It was for me – I was as enchanted as Sleeping Beauty when she dropped off into her 100-year sleep.

Dancing in the Footsteps of the Muses: Traditional Ritual Dances of Mount Olympus

For thirty years I have been researching and teaching women’s traditional circle dances of the Balkans and Near East, which have been danced for hundreds, perhaps thousands of years, and are still danced today at weddings and village celebrations. The method I’ve developed is to compare common motifs in archaeological finds, embroidered textiles, dance patterns, and song words. I see these four forms of women’s artistic expression as modes of unwritten communication, transmitting ‘hidden information’ which, in the words of Marguerite Rigoglioso, ‘may have been deposited for safekeeping in those great repositories of the forbidden – myth and folklore – where they have remained veiled in plain sight for two millennia.’
