The Call of The Dark Goddess

The sacred feminine embodies the ways of the Dark Goddess held in the dance of life light in our cells.

Our bodies and souls know the Dark Goddess — from our first yowl of breath as our hunger instinctively reaches for the softness of breast and nourishment of milk — to the last emptying of our lungs when we surrender to Her gaping maw of death —She holds, witnesses and loves us. For we are Her sacred children.

In our ancient past, we knew these things and held the Dark Goddess and Her life giving ways as holy and central to our ways of living and dreaming.

After the harshness of winter, the blossom of chartreuse bud and wild flower return. The gentle dawn light follows the ebony velvet of darkest night. These things we know, can count on. Life cycles continually, miraculously from life to death to rebirth. Out of the vast potential of energy comes form, form inevitably decays and dissolves, only to be born again in new shapes and functions. These are the primal ways of the Dark Goddess held in the dance of energy and matter.

The sacred feminine, powers of creation, held in flesh, breath, beauty and love, as well as decay, destruction, loss and suffering. Life — delicious, sensual, terrifying, raw, fully experienced and embraced — precious, delicate, impermanent, holy — these are the embodied ways of the Dark Goddess held in the dance of life light in our cells.

In our ancient past, we knew these things and held the Dark Goddess and Her life giving ways as holy and central to our ways of living and dreaming. Though we have stepped off of her Path and onto another, always She calls us to return to our true nature and beauty, and our best, life-serving instincts.

On the Path of She, we turn our hearts and knowing back to the Dark Goddess. We rediscover and reclaim Her presence and powers that lie in wait for us — within the most secret, silent places of our inner landscape — amongst the wild, wide wonders of the natural world — and in the mystery teachings preserved in pagan and Wiccan traditions. As we open to our hunger for our own hidden beauty and power, we naturally unleash our more primal hunger to be one with the powers of life and the ways of the Dark Goddess. We heed Her call, and begin to live and dream our life anew.
