Goddess

For my daughter: A Roadmap to the Passionate Universe

#1 Assume there is no such thing as control. Then it will be less surprising when cars swerve off the road or planes fall from the sky. Instead, cultivate awe for the fact that cars stay on the road at all, that drivers agree to keep to their side of the yellow line and stop at red lights. We are on a planet that is spinning within a solar system, which is spiraling through space at 180 miles per second, every minute of every day. In the midst of all this wild movement, isn’t it a miracle that we can stand up? #2 Don’t argue over whether life is meaningful or random. It is most elegantly...

Meeting the Goddess Lilith

Many years ago I had an encounter with an owl that led me to the Goddess Lilith, catapulting me on the journey that has been my life these past 25 years. In that time, Lilith has been one of my main guides and allies. Can I tell you in one sentence what that means? No. It is too complex and revealing and anyway, the power would be lost in the telling. But I can tell you some things. And in that telling I can understand it better myself. Because that is the way story always works. And that is why we tell stories. Recently I began a class with a group of women around regaining our pure female...

#NastyWomanWriters: Trotula of Salerno, 11th century, Salerno, Italia by Theresa C. Dintino Because there are many women who have numerous diverse illnesses—some of them almost fatal—and because they are also ashamed to reveal and tell their distress to any man… to assist women, I intend to write of how to help their secret maladies so that one woman may aid another in her illness and not divulge her secrets. ~Trotula of Salerno, 11th century Italy.

The One-Breasted Woman

  There is a shrine in the Dagara tradition that falls under the category of the Saazumwin. She is called The One-Breasted Woman. The Saazumwin are the ones who stretch between the Earth and the stars. They are the beings from the space above, the light beings, the star beings. They are cosmic and benevolent and can often be seen as what many call angels. (To learn more about the Saazumwin, see chapter 10 of my book, Notes from a Diviner in the Postmodern World: A Handbook for Spirit Workers) I was told very little about this shrine when I was first told to make it. I was told to make a...
