Future myths take place when women remember their ancient roots and use the power inherent in that knowledge to restore a sacred balance to the Earth. As guides, we demonstrate how to live in harmony with Nature and all beings. The ancient myths have come full circle.



As a new day dawns, the Earth and all beings are once again regarded as sacred. All creatures are seen as fellow beings - the unique qualities of each are recognized and respected. As we nurture these other species, they in turn nurture our spirits; we recognize our connection with each other. Our spiritual link with Mother Earth and all of her creatures has been re-awakened. As human beings realize that they too are part of the natural world, rather than separate from or above it, the planet and all beings survive and flourish. The Goddess figure in stone is from an unguent box found at Minet-el-Beida, Canaan, 14th-13th century BCE.

Women, migrating from patriarchal values and toward the Goddess, discover their wings and that they really can fly. Inspired by an old song sung by Libana:

            "There's a river of birds in migration
            a nation of women with wings".

The shamans of one culture make the same journey as the shamans of another. Bridges between cultures are crossed as we recognize the similarities between all of our myths, our artifacts, and our ultimate spiritual goals. As we transform ourselves and our environment, our sacred link with the Earth is re-established.

Turning away from the belief in power over inherent in all patriarchal religions, women turn toward the Goddess and find the inner power that comes with the recognition that we are all part of the universal creative flow. One by one we wake up and begin to heal the Earth, our fellow creatures, and each other. The values by which we live center around our spiritual identification with the natural world. The bird-headed snake Goddess is from pre-dynastic Egypt, 4000 BCE.

As the Earth shifts, so the paradigm shifts. Our fellow creatures are our teachers. As we learn the language of the animals, communication between all species opens up. We recognize the sacredness of all beings as the Goddess inspires compassion and we begin to mend the sacred web of life. Nile River Goddess, mid 4th millennium BCE.

The moon, in many cultures throughout the ages, has been associated with the feminine: intuition, emotion, nurturance, cycles. As the moon moves closer to the Earth, the tides change; that which had been kept hidden re-emerges and lunar values prevail. The creative wisdom of the feminine is once again the center of the universe.
