Bible Ecology vs. Goddess Ecology

Goddess ecology stands in stark contrast to male dominated patriarchal religions and beliefs in entitlement to rule over women and Mother Nature. Synonymous with Nature, Goddess Spirituality offers a better way to live in harmony with each other and the planet for a sustainable future based on balanced development rather than continued unsustainable growth. Q&A

Politics of Eco-Feminist Goddess Spirituality; A Thealogy for a Sustainable Future

Talk explores how the mythology of the Sacred Feminine, deity, archetype and ideal, might re-establish the foundations on our planet necessary for a sustainable future for all life and Mother Earth. How a paradigm shift into a post-kyriarchal world might be achieved using secular law alongside thealogical thinking. As such, this talk compares the values of Republicans, conservatives and male-dominated Abrahamic traditions with liberals and Goddess ideals, establishing how progressive ideologies of Democratic principles are more in sync with the spirituality of the Divine Feminine. If Goddess had a political affiliation, given our two political parties, She would be a Democrat.  Q & A .

Finding Your Sacred Roar

(Participatory/Interactive) When Patriarchy allows us to glimpse the Sacred Feminine, it wants us to see a very narrow and limiting picture of Goddess to emulate in order to serve man or patriarchyís authoritarian god. Weíre allowed to have the Great Mother if sheís docile and tame. But would Patriarchy have us reclaim the full meaning of Goddess if it meant embodying her might bring our world into balance and emulating her caused women to no longer serve the status quo? If we saw beyond the dew of compassion and the rosary and evaluated what else is hidden in plain sight? Associated with life and death, social justice, balance, boundaries, equality, peace, and sacred rage, the Sacred Feminine is calling us to action to right the imbalances of our patriarchal world. How do we know? Are you activated? Motivated? Can you hear Her Sacred Roar?

The Sacred Feminine: Deity, Archetype and Ideal

Who is not ashamed to read the paper and see what passes for the norm these days? Are there others out there tired of our leaders failing us and being part of the problem as they are immersed in scandals, lies, and corruption?
