The Eternal Feminine Series
Seen as an original dynamic and cosmic force, the Eternal Feminine may also be understood as a spiritual being or essence that gives hope and light in dark times. Whether the Eternal Feminine is conceived as the ancient fertility goddess, as Mary or as Sophia, the Wisdom of the Divine, or under a hundred other names, these are embodiments of a universal energy that is often associated with the earth, but also with radiant spirit. She is both dark, the place where the seed germinates, and light, the force that generates life.
