For the past 10 years the “sacred feminine,” “divine feminine,” “motherline” and other terms are being used more frequently in books and articles, but I’ve yet to hear clear descriptions of what exactly we’re talking about.
I look at Bhakti, the Way of the Feminine Divine, an ancient wisdom tradition for the insights I share.
Is the Feminine Divine a personification of Earth, a mother goddess representing fertility, or Sophia, the personification of wisdom? Is the Feminine Divine an umbrella term referring to goddesses in all traditions and cultures? Does the “Feminine Divine” and “Goddess” refer to the same thing? Is the Feminine Divine a metaphor? Does the term refer to a process? An energy? An identity? Is the Feminine Divine a female version of God?
In an ongoing series I examine the Feminine Divine. Today, in this video, I look at the nature and characteristics of the Feminine Divine. View a transcript of the talk here.
When you think of the Feminine Divine, What do you think about?
Do you have any questions about this videocast? I’d love to hear from you.
From my heart to yours,
