Banyen's Description: 

This newly expanded second edition is a collection of more than 30 stories from 20 cultures that celebrate the goddess. They are organized around seven healing goddess principles and are inspired by traditional goddess lore and ancient artifacts. Each one is introduced by placing it in its cultural and historical context, telling the story’s origins, and describing props that can be used to invoke that story’s goddess—from Kali and Hecate to Shekina, Kuan Yin, Athena, Mary, and Lilith.

Providing new myths for a new age of Goddess retellings, Edwards’ stories of the Goddess revere and deify that which we call female. In her voice, woman is volcano, ocean, and snake. Woman sleeps at the center of the human heart. These stories call up feelings of the sacred; they grow from the Earth.

“A wonderful reading experience. The language is clear, respectful, inviting. These stories are not born to simply lie on the page—they call for masks and music. They are born to be told, to be performed with vigor and tenderness.”—Luisah Teish
