If I am honest, I didn’t even know how relevant this work would become in the years that accompanied, and have now followed, my doctoral research.
What I did know was that the feminine principle had become a distant concept in my own life. One that felt either satirical or imaginary in a culture that had rallied under a banner of masculine power for so long. Then I became a mother. The dragon was awakened. Not with hatred, or even anger…but with curiosity. What was I missing?
When I began writing in 2014. I could never have predicted that, 2 years later, the U.S. would inaugurate a leader whose despicable treatment of women has been called his “first abuse of power.” Exactly two weeks before the publication date of my doctoral dissertation, the #MeToo movement was born. Two years later a global pandemic sent our human civilization into a urgent reckoning with “Mother Nature.” And this year, the Supreme Court dismantled the landmark legislation of Roe v. Wade.
The reclamation of the Divine Feminine is not simply a political cry for women’s rights and safety. It is a psychological and spiritual imperative to heed the cries of our planet, honor the wisdom of our bodies and remember the sacredness of the human experience. “Godd-ess” stands for the ess-ence of divinity that animates all things.
I couldn’t have know how much the world would need Her now, but it has been five years since I completed my doctorate and I am finally ready to share this work with you.
