As one who is addicted to books, especially used books, I thought it might be interesting to talk about books (or other works) that have given us food for thought about the feminine divine.  I was…Continue

I discovered the Divine Feminine via taking the Cakes for the Queen of Heaven course through the Unitarian Church in 1991.  I was raised fundamentalist and became an agnostic at age 16; however, I discovered Goddess within me at age 31.  Blessings to all!

Growing up Catholic- I had never really heard about pre-Christian Goddesses. Then later in life, I went to a Unitarian Church and was exposed to their "Rise up and call her Blessed" Curriculum. Wow- this was it. It all made sense. I wanted to know more. I really became interested in the Celtic Goddesses. On a trip to Ireland, I wanted to locate everything "Bridget". Went to the Bridget's Well, Bridget's Kitchen, a tower, etc. It is upsetting how the female and her ways of knowing and understanding have been squelched by the Church and by some aspects of society in general. So glad we can celebrate it now!

I just uploaded a video that I stitched together from Mary PLaster's icon, Sophia, Divine Wisdom, and a song titled Sophia. Artwork is better than the music ;)

While my day did not end as expected (No Passover Seder) I am embracing the full moon's energy. I will spend the evening with the Divine Feminine and a cup of hot tea. Perhaps I may write something...

I was exited to find this group. I have begun to experience the Feminine Divine and am exploring her many faces and forms. I have been feeling quite drawn to Brigid and appreciated Aine's sharing so very much. I am also quite drawn to the Black Madonna and have begun reading more about her. I look forward to learning and growing in this group. M

Hello, I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm Christina (or Vestalilla - little Vesta). I don't know a lot about her - there isn't much info out there - but I seem to have an affinity for Vesta, the Roman goddess of the hearth. What I know of Vesta is that she was the goddess of hearth, home and family, and one of her important symbols is the hearth fire. A lot of us are familiar with the Vestal Virgins, who tended Vesta's fires and represented the honor of Rome - and were not allowed to marry during their term of "office". But I prefer to think of Vesta in a more ancient sense - as a legacy of some great mother goddess concept that stretched back to Roman pre-history, and that stayed with the Romans in this more "organized"/mythologized construct. I see many parallels between Roman civilization and our own, fortunately or unfortunately - a drive towards empire, a strong patriarchy, militarism, etc. I like to think of myself, in my own little way, as reflecting ancient traditions and reverence towards a feminine divine that was reflected in Roman culture by the idea of Vesta. Although I am trying to develop myself as an artist, my main "occupation" is stay at home mom, so tending the hearth fires, strengthening my family, and being a reflection of the goddess as the foundation of *home* (and all the positive connotations that hopefully evokes) is something that is always very much on my mind. I tend to think of Vesta when I need to be more assertive in my role as mother or wife. She has been very helpful to me in this regard. I look forward to getting to know you all more -
Regards - Vestalilla/Christina

Ahh - thank you all for your warm welcome and your reminders of the warmth that is coming. At 8000 feet in the mountains spring comes slowly, yet, indeed, the aspens have buds in the snow.

Born on the first day of spring, I am especially connected to the season - and to the story of Persephone returning from the dark underground - the via creativa, the via negativa.
