What if much of the pain experienced by humanity and the ongoing marginalization of women is a consequence of a near-total eclipse in the heavens of the Female Divine? What if the strange disappearance of God the Mother from history and from religion is not a cold case but can be cracked wide open? And what if we now acknowledge the missing half of God and invite the Mother--the essential Feminine Principle--back into the family? What if this is not just a cosmetic nicety but a cosmic necessity?
This remarkable and radical book is more than poetry. It is an urgent invitation for all--women and men, people of all religions and of no religion--to heal the Motherless House of our grieving world. The poems are touching, sometimes funny, and deeply thought-provoking.
