Embark on a literal and spiritual journey of discovery and rediscovery as you explore the ancient world of women-centered culture and the reemergence of goddess consciousness in modern women's lives. Part celebration, part travelogue, and part historical research, this compelling work takes you on a tour of places of historical significance, offering explanations and discussions of artifacts and drawings and their relationship to the goddess of earth and cosmos. Visit Greek temples, prehistoric caves, stone circles, giant passage mounds, and other monuments. At each site, the author draws upon her own experiences and adeptly combines them with ancient traditions, archaeology, and mythology to beautifully conjure landscapes imprinted with the symbolic form of women.
