The Heart of the Goddess with Hallie Iglehart Austen
From the Ice Age to the present, from Nigeria to Hawaii, images of the Goddess principles are reemerging, bringing renewed attention and expression to mythical and spiritual inner and outer guides. The Heart of the Goddess presents a worldwide selection of the art, values, and living lessons of Goddess culture. To author Hallie Iglehart Austen, respect for the Earth, restoration of community, and regaining the long lost power of Woman are inseparable.
Through the presence of the Goddess in daily life, the reader finds wisdom, serenity, and guidance. The Heart of the Goddess is an invaluable addition to the literature of feminist spirituality. Someone called it “returning to the Mother of us all.”
Hallie believes we need the wisdom of the Goddesses now more than ever. We have reached a crossroads that appears to be either the end times or an opportunity for rebirth, and she suggests it’s up to us to determine which it will be. “We humans have created this situation and we humans can heal it.” She created The Heart of the Goddess to help midwife the rebirth—in the hope, it will be a source of inspiration in our personal, collective and planetary healing.
