Dark Goddess by Maia Mires | 23 Jul, 2021 | Inspirations | 1 comment Share now 1 Comment Maia Mires on August 1, 2021 at 6:31 pm The return to the goddess, for renewal in a feminine source-ground and spirit, is a vitally important aspect of modern woman’s quest for wholeness. We women who have succeeded in the world are usually “daughters of the father” — that is, well adapted to a masculine-oriented society — and have repudiated our own full feminine instincts and energy patterns, just as the culture has maimed its derogated most of them. We need to return to and redeem what the patriarchy has often seen only as a dangerous threat and called terrible mother, dragon, or witch…. This inner connection is an initiation essential for most women in the western world; without it we are not whole. This process requires both a sacrifice of our identity as spiritual daughters of the patriarchy and a descent into the spirit of the goddess, because so much of the power and passion of the feminine has been dormant in the underworld— in exile for five thousand years.
