Whoever the particular goddess may be--Athena, Demeter, Isis, Ianna, Diana--and whatever her manifestation, they're all mysterious and paradoxical. Yet, Price notes, they have one source--the Divine Feminine, the great Mother--which is always rooted in the power of love and supreme truth.
Price believes the #MeToo movement--focusing upon the pervasive denigration of the feminine through misogyny, abuse, and rape--must be understood through Goddess wisdom...which currently is birthing global consciousness as the archetypal "set-Father" called "God" is recognized for what it is: A tool for ignoring, distorting, and oppressing the wisdom of the Goddess/Sacred Feminine and its ability to heal all that ails the world.
Once folks explore the Mother Goddesses, Price argues, they will discover their inner divinity and harness their own goddess power in work, life, and love.
Price--a certified "SQ21 Spiritual Intelligence" coach--wants people to know the strong, loving presence, and guidance of the Sacred Feminine. She argues that a brighter future is possible by journeying into the heart of the Goddess traditions and learning about the archetypes, mythic narratives, and qualities of Goddesses that are alive within people as well as how they can serve as empowering guides in their personal and professional lives.
Lots of folks will find in this herstory much to contemplate and answers for those patriarchal ideologues who seek to deny the Mother of the Universe who alone holds the key for a new vision of a brighter future for humanity.
Herstory and heresy that Price's discussion is, noteworthy for Catholics is her discussion about black Goddesses/dark-skinned Mothers who, Price maintains, provide a powerful symbol and catalyst for positive change in these troubled times.
Holy Mother of Czestochowa, Thou art full of grace, goodness and mercy. I consecrate to Thee all my thoughts, words and actions, my soul and body. I beseech Thy blessings and especially prayers for my salvation. Today, I consecrate myself to Thee, Good Mother, totally, with body and soul amid joy and sufferings to obtain for myself and others Thy blessings on this earth and eternal life in Heaven.
...truly the Mother of God and of the redeemer...."clearly the mother of the members of Christ"....since she has by her charity joined in bringing about the birth of believers in the Church, who are members of its head. Mary, Mother of Christ, Mother of the Church.
