This empowering, poetic and magically potent book will entice women of all ages to explore and activate their relationship with the divine, feminine and most sacred part of themselvesâ€”their goddess within. In this book, Back to the Goddess founder RenÃ©e Starr takes women on an enchanting, inspiring journey, offering ancient wisdom in a fresh, modern way to help woman reclaim their beauty, grace, and strength.
In Part 1, she leads readers back through history to revisit the reverence for women that every ancient culture possessed. From the dawn of pre-history, women were perceived as holy, sacred, and divine incarnations of the Great Mother Goddess. Powerful figures full of strength, wisdom, and leadership, women were the keepers of the human race, from which all life flowed.
In Part 2, Starr retells in mesmerizing narrative 7 goddess myths from ancient cultures around the world: Ancient Egypt, Africa, India, Tibet, Ancient Greece, Lakota, and the Judeo-Christian Bible. Each myth presents a quality that modern women can restore into their lives: Lilith (Power), Yemaya (Creativity), Tara (Stillness), Radha (Passion), Kassandra (Voice), White Buffalo Calf Woman (Wisdom), and Eve (Awakening). Accompanying each myth are anointing, bathing and lunar rituals, instructions for altars, invocations, meditations, and more.
In Part 3, Starr shows women how to integrate the teachings of The Divine Feminine into everyday life, honoring the sacredness of their body and how to be in energetic, feminine balance. The book offers fresh, new ways for women to embrace their ancient and sacred traditions. It uplifts the spirit of any womanâ€”from young womanhood to her elder, wise-woman years. It honors the Feminine spirit that all women can celebrate in themselves to rebalance the world. Readers will live more fulfilled lives and feel more confident, free and feminineâ€¦becoming the goddesses they were meant to be.
Beautifully designed & illustrated; includes a foreword by Raquel Allegra, noted fashion designer.

About the Author
Read an Excerpt
The modern world has little space dedicated to The Goddess or The Divine Feminine. Gone are Her temples, Her priestesses, and the daily devotion that we once had for Her. It is time now to remember Her long lost ways, and like the mighty Isis, lovingly re-member ourselves, piece by piece back into wholeness--inner goddess and all.
What has not disappeared from the world today are the phases of the moon calling forth our blood, the rise and fall of the tides, and the wind blowing through a grove of trees. What remains here now are our beautiful and assorted bodies, our soft womanly forms that wish only to be loved and the deeply hidden space of our wombs
