Goddess Wisdom for Modern Women
At forty years old, I found myself recently divorced and recovering from a doomed love affair, which left me feeling anxious, depressed, and confused. My energy was off — way off. I thought to myself, “I don’t feel like a goddess.” Interestingly, those words came to mind because I hadn’t spent much time considering what it felt like to be a goddess until then. I now believe the goddess came back to me when I needed her the most. It was then that I decided I would start to act like a goddess.
I began to research goddesses from across history and cultures. I was thrilled to find that ancient wisdom still applies to modern-day scenarios like sex, divorce, money, parenting, and more. Goddess myths provided a framework for how to live our best lives. These essays are a collection of my writing and have led to my new book, The Goddess Solution.
