Goodreads Synopsis: The acclaimed spiritual memoir from the author of "The Secret Life of Bees" "I was amazed to find that I had no idea how to unfold my spiritual life in a feminine way.

From a jarring encounter with sexism in a suburban drugstore to monastery retreats and rituals in the caves of Crete, Kidd takes readers through the fear, anger, healing, and transformation of her awakening. Retaining a meaningful connection "with the deep song of Christianity," she opens the door for traditional Christian women to discover a spirituality that speaks directly to them and provides inspiring wisdom for all who struggle to embrace their full humanity.

Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century: From Kabbalah to Quantum Physics - Judith Laura 2008

Amazon Synopsis: Goddess Spirituality for the 21st Century presents new ways of deepening the mystical connection with the divine embodied as female. Judith Laura begins by reviewing concepts common to various forms of Goddess spirituality. She then moves into uncharted territory by re-envisioning the metaphysical basis underlying much of Western mysticism.

This is the first book to look at both Jewish Kabbalah and Western Esoteric Qabalah from the point of view of Goddess concepts, and to offer a more gender-balanced, female-affirming re-visioning of the central kabbalistic symbol, the Tree of Life. The book also encourages the incorporation of contemporary science, such as quantum physics, into the symbolism and practice of Goddess spirituality. Though tackling complex subjects, the author offers her explanations in an approach that is easy to understand without being simplistic.

The book also includes rituals and guided meditations to help put these ground-breaking theories into spiritual practice.

The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries - Zsuzsanna Emese Budapest 2007

Amazon Synopsis: A women's spirituality classic now back in print! The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries is essential for Pagans, feminists, and women seeking to learn more about the spiritual path as it relates to the feminine and the Goddess aspects of witchcraft and Wicca. This book is not about reinstating a matriarchy or tearing down patriarchy; it is about women's spirituality and its relationship with politics and lifestyle. Z. Budapest is one of the founding mothers of modern women's witchcraft, beginning with the establishment of Susan B. Anthony Coven in Los Angeles in 1971. She catapulted herself into the media spotlight when she was tried as a witch and found guilty in 1975 after being arrested on Venice Beach for reading tarot cards. She fought the charges and, after a nine year battle, won the right for every tarot reader to do so legally.

The Holy Book of Women's Mysteries is a seminal text that contains invaluable information on Dianic witchcraft and spells, including everyday magick, sabbat rituals, and divination methods; a section on how vegetarian theories and politics relate to witchcraft and the feminine aspect; and a good deal of information on goddesses and how the patriarchal religions distorted old myths to serve their own needs. There are several unique and beautiful Rites of Passage for women and men that you don't often find, and Budapest's personal life stories are an equally valuable read, from her escape across the mountains from Communist Hungary to her fight for women's religious freedom upon moving to America. * This reprint features a new introduction by Z. Budapest, in addition to essays by luminaries such as Starhawk and Merlin Stone.

Is It Okay to Call God "Mother"?: Considering the Feminine Face of God - Paul R. Smith 1993

Amazon Synopsis: "This book is a tour de force. It is simply magnificent--witty, scholarly, profoundly persuasive, blunt, prophetic, and convicting this slow-to-believe disciple all over the place."--Brennan Manning, author of The Ragamuffin Gospel

"I'm not sure what to make of it all, but Paul Smith gives the best arguments I have ever come across for calling God Mother. For anyone struggling with how far we should go in using inclusive language, this is 'must' reading."--Tony Campolo, Eastern College

"With tender power and wit, Paul Smith challenges the church to biblical fidelity and justice in its worship language. How encouraging it is to hear an evangelical male voice affirm the necessity of feminine images of God! This outstanding book so clearly and convincingly demonstrates the biblical imperative for inclusive God-language that the Christian community can no longer ignore it."--Jann Aldredge-Clanton, PhD, chaplain, Baylor University Medical Center; author of God and Gender and God: A Word for Girls and Boys

"In the often difficult debate over language and God, this is a thoughtful and productive contribution to this important and complex subject."--Roberta Hestenes, president, Eastern College, St. Davids, Pennsylvania

Mother God – Sylvia Browne 2004

Book Jacket: Sylvia Browne, in her own indomitable style, again defies convention in this uniquely informative compilation of diligently researched facts and personal accounts about the premise of a female divinity-namely, the Mother God (also known as the feminine principle).

Spanning time from the earliest beginnings of humankind, when the time of the 'Goddess' was at its peak, to the current era, with its myriad beliefs and religions, Sylvia takes us on a journey of discovery, where she discusses the suppression of the 'Mother Goddess' by the male-dominated politics of modern-day religious dogma.

Using a combination of historical data and poignant and heartwarming stories revealing the power and miracles attributed to the Mother God, Sylvia leads us from the question of 'Does She exist?' to the logical, fact-based conclusion that She does . . . and then shows us how to call upon Her to help us in our everyday lives.

Vicki Noble challenges us to celebrate our ancient peaceful heritage and to reclaim our right as a people to a life without war. The book is a vision of hope and transformation, made even more powerful by the vibrant pictorial images of the seventy-eight Motherpeace tarot cards.

Motherpeace shows how traditional myths and symbols can provide ideas and images for understanding the meaning and power of the Goddess for women and men today.


Mysteries of the Dark Moon: The Healing Power of the Dark Goddess - Demetra George 1992

Amazon Synopsis: Exploring the mystery, wisdom, and power of the dark phase of the moon's cycle--a lunar-based model for moving through the dark times in our lives with understanding, consciousness, and faith in renewal.

The moon's dark phase has traditionally been a time of fear and superstition, a time associated with death and isolation. The mythical embodiment of these fears is the Dark Goddess. Known around the world by many names--Lilith, Kali, Hecate, and Morgana--the archetypal Dark Goddess represents death, sexuality, and the unconscious--the little understood, often feared aspects of life.

Demetra George combines psychological, mythical, and spiritual perspective on the shadowy, feminine symbolism of the dark moon to reclaim the darkness from oppressive, fear-based images. George offers rites for rebirth and transformation that teach us to tap into the power of our dark times, maximizing the potential for renewal inherent in our inevitable periods of loss, depression, and anger.

The Path of the Priestess takes readers on a journey deep into the heart of the feminine experience. It describes the author's years of first-hand experience in the ancient arts of Tantra, Dzogchen, and Indian and Egyptian temple dance and healing, as well as her research into the feminine principle in the mystic teachings of the Alchemists, Hebrew Kabbalists, and Christian Gnostics.

Beginning with an analysis of the basic issues and frustrations inherent in contemporary society's conditioning of and expectations for women, readers travel back in time to the age of the great temples, schools, and sacred societies in which women still held and transmitted the spiritual light that nourished all of civilization.

Through its mythic and historic tales, descriptions of sacred ritual practices, and teachings on the Goddess traditions, The Path of the Priestess provides contemporary women with the means to enter this time-honored path. In keeping with the experientially based teaching methods of these traditions, it also offers exercises and visualizations designed to align women with the powerful, sensuous, and loving energies of the most profound feminine role model that shaped and preserved culture and society--the Great Goddess.

 

The Return of the Feminine and the World Soul - Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee 2009

Amazon Synopsis: The feminine holds the mystery of creation. This simple and primordial truth is often overlooked, but at this time of global crisis, which also carries the seeds of a global transformation, we need to reawaken to the spiritual power and potential of the feminine. Feminine qualities belong to both men and women, and they draw us into the depths within us, into the mysteries of the soul whose wisdom is called Sophia. Without the feminine nothing new can be born, nothing new can come into existence—we will remain caught in the materialistic images of life that are polluting our planet and desecrating our souls. We need to return to the core of our being, to where the sacred comes into existence. And the mystical feminine holds the key to this work of redemption and transformation.

Over the past two decades Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee has given different teachings on the feminine and the anima mundi, the World Soul. They are compiled here for the first time.


 

Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked - Meggan Watterson 2013

Amazon Synopsis: Harvard-trained theologian Meggan Watterson marched out of her church at age ten. With little-girl clarity, she knew something tremendously crucial was missing…the voices of women.

Watterson became a theologian and a pilgrim to the divine feminine to find the missing stories and images of women’s spiritual voices. She knew women’s voices had never been silenced, just buried. But what she truly sought was her own spiritual voice inside her—the one veiled beneath years of self-doubt.

At a sacred site of the Black Madonna in Europe, Watterson had a revelation that changed her. Rather than transcending the body, denying or ignoring it, being spiritual for her meant accepting her body as sacred. Only then, Watterson realized could she hear the voice of unfaltering love inside her- the voice of her soul. 

With passion, humor, and brutal honesty, Watterson draws on ancient stories and lesser-known texts of the divine feminine, like The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, making them modern and accessible to reveal the spiritual process she went through. She suggests that being spiritual is simply about stripping down to the truth of who we really are.

Through her extensive work with women, Watterson found that she was not alone. There are countless women who long for a spirituality that encourages embodiment rather than denies it, that inspires them to abandon their fears but never themselves, and to be led by the audacious and fiercely loving voice of truth inside them.

No matter where you rest on the spectrum of spirituality; religious or secular, devout believer or chronic doubter, freelance mystic or borderline agnostic, this story is about the desire in all of us to want to shed everything that holds us back. Reveal provides what religions have left out—the spiritual voice of a woman who has claimed her body as sacred—a woman who has found the divine insider her. In essence, this is a manual for revealing your soul.

 

The Sophia Teachings: The Emergence of the Divine Feminine in Our Time - Robert Powell 2007

Amazon Synopsis: Robert Powell-cofounder of the Sophia Foundation of North American in Nicasio, California-uncovers a secret stream of wisdom flowing through the heart of Christianity: the feminine principle known in Greek as "Sophia," or the being of Holy Wisdom herself. This sacred embodiment, named in the Old Testament as the first living being made by God, has comforted and guided seekers of truth in every age and in every human culture. Powell surveys the wonders and teachings associated with this unacknowledged treasure of Christianity's mystical past-a stream running from the Greek philosophers and King Solomon through the cosmic visions of Hildegard von Bingen, Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the relation of Sophia to Mary the mother of Christ. THE SOPHIA TEACHINGS provides accessible and informative insights into the being of Sophia-generally overlooked by modern, patriarchal Christianity and misinterpreted by new age and and other movements that often trivialize the meaning and purpose of this significant cosmic entity.


When God was a Woman – Merlin Stone 2001

Amazon Synopsis: Here, archaeologically documented, is the story of the religion of the Goddess. Under her, women’s roles were far more prominent than in patriarchal Judeo-Christian cultures. Stone describes this ancient system and, with its disintegration, the decline in women’s status. Index; maps and illustrations.


Wild Feminine: Finding Power, Spirit & Joy in the Female Body - Tami Lynn Kent 2011

Amazon Synopsis: Wild Feminine: Finding Power, Spirit, & Joy in the Female Body offers a unique, holistic approach to reclaiming the power, spirit, and joy of the female body and to understanding its connection to creative energy flow. By restoring physical and energetic balance in the pelvic bowl, women can learn to care for themselves in a nourishing and respectful manner, heal spiritual fractures, and renew their relationship with the sacred feminine.

Although the feminine body is an access point to the greater realm of the spirit, many women have lost their connection to this source. Author Tami Kent, MSPT, has an answer. Drawing from her experiences as a woman's health physical therapist who works with the physical body and female energy system, Kent provides a framework for healing the body and navigating the realms of feminine spirit. Through pelvic bodywork, healing stories, visualizations, rituals, and creative exercises, women can explore the deep and natural wisdom inherent in the female body.

Wild Feminine reveals the amazing potential of the female body: the potential to create, to heal, and to transform the energy of a woman’s everyday life. Journey deep into the heart of your body. Travel the terrain of feminine wounds. Go to your root place, the center of all womanhood and radically shift your relationship with your body and spirit. Wild Feminine gives you the tools to awaken and retrieve your ancient wild self, restore your creative energy, and reconnect to your sacred center.


Wisdom: The Feminine Face of God by Daniel Berrigan 2002

Amazon Synopsis: Continuing his highly acclaimed series of spiritual and social commentaries on the books of the Bible, Daniel Berrigan offers an original and timely reading of the Wisdom of Solomon. Navigating through its complex style--which intermixes poetry characteristic of the Old Testament and elaborate sentences found in Greek Oratory--Berrigan's Wisdom: The Feminine Face of God reveals the philosophical, ethical, theological, historical, psychological, and scientific issues raised by the text and wrestles with their contemporary relevance.

Berrigan beautifully draws out the image of Sophia, or Woman Wisdom. As one of the most powerful and mystical figures in the Bible, Woman Wisdom is the timeless personification of intelligence, holiness, purity, loyalty, justice, courage, and love. Emanating from God, she seeks to transform the world and invites all people of goodwill to be her lovers. Our challenge, as Berrigan's book makes clear, is to open our hearts and say, Yes.
