Overview

Even as a little girl, Harvard-trained theologian Meggan Watterson knew something was missing from traditional religion – the voices of women. She knew these voices had never been silenced, just buried, so she began a pilgrimage to uncover the presence of the Divine Feminine.

What she discovered along the way were not only the many stories, images, and voices of the Divine Feminine in world religions – Christianity’s Mary Magdalene, Hinduism’s Kali Ma, Buddhism’s Green Tara – but also her own spiritual voice, the one veiled beneath years of fear and self-doubt.

After a revelation at a sacred site of the Black Madonna in Europe, Meggan realized that being spiritual for her was intricately tied to her view of her body. Rather than transcending the body, denying or ignoring it, she found that she must accept her body as sacred. Only then could she truly hear the voice of unfaltering love inside her – the voice of her soul.

Watterson soon found that she was not alone, that there are countless women who long for a spirituality that encourages embodiment, that inspires them to abandon their fears but never themselves, and that shows them how to be led by the audacious and fiercely loving voice of truth inside them.

No matter where you rest on the spectrum of spirituality – religious or secular, devout believer or chronic doubter, freelance mystic or borderline agnostic – this story is about the desire to shed what’s holding you back. With passion, humor, poetry, and raw honesty, Meggan provides what religion has left out – a way to lift the veils of your own fear and self-doubt to reveal your soul and find the Divine within.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Reveal is one of the most uplifting, honest, exhilarating books I have ever read. I devoured every page of this beautifully written life-changing work. It speaks to the Divine embodied soul of every woman and leaves you as refreshed as a spring rain in the desert.”
Christiane Northrup, M.D., OB/GYN physician and New York Times best-selling author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause

 “The Divine Feminine has found a beautiful voice in Meggan Watterson's new book, Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked. Written with a vulnerable heart and a fierce commitment to truth, Meggan's spiritual journey will inspire you to find and follow your own true soul-voice. I loved every single page!”
Cheryl Richardson, author of The Art of Extreme Self-Care

“Reveal is a healing, a retelling, a remembering. The words fly like ignited prayer from the heart of Meggan Watterson. This book is a passionate calling to mend the desecrating separation between body and soul and make the world whole.”
Eve Ensler, founder of V-Day and New York Times best-selling author of The Vagina Monologues and I Am an Emotional Creature

“Meggan Watterson is a poet and a scholar and a real-life 21st century seeker. She’s your best girlfriend . . . and a trusted spiritual guide suggesting shortcuts toward wisdom and happiness. This is a lovely book.”
Elizabeth Lesser, co-founder of the Omega Institute and author of Broken Open: How Difficult Times Can Help Us Grow

"The world is hungry for the awakening consciousness of the feminine spirit. Meggan's journey is riveting, magnificently told, and will help you to unlock your own."
Regena Thomashauer, author of Mama Gena's School of Womanly Arts

“Meggan Watterson brings alive the concept of spirituality as something that is not separate from us, or something we have to go out and pursue or attain. I just love the way she weaves everything, from her sexuality, her body, her emotions—in fact, her life—into a seamless tapestry that teaches us the spiritual importance of being who we are, and that our life is our prayer to the universe. This is a book after my own heart!”
Anita Moorjani, best-selling author of Dying to Be Me

“Reveal cracked me open, reawakened my spirit and reminded me that I'm not alone on my spiritual journey. Meggan Watterson addresses so much of what we're afraid to say. This book opened my heart and fed my soul. Reveal is a blessing to the world.”
Gabrielle Bernstein, New York Times best-selling author of May Cause Miracles 

“Watterson’s voice is so powerful that when you open this book you will feel like she is sitting next to you, staring into your eyes over a cup of tea, and talking directly to you about all that matters in life. Even skeptics can’t help but respond to such a brilliant, clear vision about waking up the voice you are meant to have. This spiritual memoir will reach straight into your soul and stay there.”
Donna Freitas, Ph.D., author of The End of Sex and Sex and the Soul: Juggling Sexuality, Spirituality, Romance, and Religion on America's College Campuses

 “Meggan Watterson reveals for us all the deep journey of self-love through the arms of the feminine. Reveal takes you on a soulful and sacred journey that will make you laugh, cry, and awaken the inner divine rebel living and breathing inside of you.” 
— Christine Arylo, self-love author and founder of Madly in Love with ME   

“Meggan Watterson writes of the body, 'it is your chance to be here.’ The same could be said of this book—it is a chance, a wish, a vision of a world where women's bodies and their spirits are united, where their pasts don't lock them in shame, where their futures are wide open and self-created. Meggan's fiercely original, unapologetically intense writing sucks you in from page one and doesn't let you go until you spin out from the end, changed.”
Courtney E. Martin, author of Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: How the Quest for Perfection Is Harming Young Women

“Meggan Watterson writes from the white-hot place where two passionate inquiries intersect. She is a seeker, in the fullest sense, and her feminism runs just as deep. Revealis a fireball of a book . . . Meggan is so adept at limning out a story that you come away feeling as if you’d read an engaging novella even as you were absorbing her remarkable seven-point program for claiming and reclaiming just about everything that matters!”
Carol Lee Flinders, Ph.D., author of At the Root of This Longing: Reconciling a Spiritual Hunger and a Feminist Thirst and Enduring Lives: Portraits of Women and Faith in Action

"Intimate, vulnerable, and courageous, Meggan Watterson's Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked, is a gift to liberate your spirit and set you free!”
China Galland, author of Longing for Darkness: Tara and the Black Madonna, The Bond Between Women, and Love Cemetery

“This book is an invitation back to who you really are. Read it and be reminded. Reveal is a call to return to the essence of you, beautifully interwoven with stories that will make your soul sizzle in recognition.”
Kate Northrup, author of Money: A Love Story

“Reveal reminds us that we are sacred, that we must worship at our own inner altar, and that everyone has access to a mystical experience of life. Finally, spirituality from the embodied feminine perspective—this book is a touchstone for the next generation of women and their spiritual lives.”
Alisa Vitti, founder of FLOliving.com and author of WomanCode
