About the Author

One of the leaders of the contemporary earth spirituality movement, Patricia Monaghan (1946 - 2012) had spent more than 20 years researching and writing about alternative visions of the earth. Raised in Alaska, where much of her family still lives, she considered herself blessed to have learned the ecology of the taiga, the subarctic forest, in her youth. She was a writer and reporter on science and energy-related issues before turning her attention to the impact of mythic structures on our everyday lives.

The worldwide vision of the earth as feminine--as a goddess, called Gaia by the Greeks--led her to recognize the connection between ecological damage and the oppression of the feminine in Western society. Much of her work since that time had explored the question of the role of feminine power in our world, in an inclusive and multicultural way.

An avid traveler, Patricia had researched earth spirituality and goddess worship on three continents, and traveled widely in Europe, especially in Ireland. She held dual US/Irish citizenship and edited two anthologies of contemporary Irish-American writing.

Patricia was member of the resident faculty at DePaul University's School for New Learning in Chicago, where she taught science and literature. She passed from this world in November 2012 and is survived by her husband, Dr Michael McDermott.

Reviews

I'm sure you remember the story of the three blind men and the elephant. They each touch a part of the elephant and think that their description is complete. However, the only way to truly know what the elephant looks like is to take all of their descriptions together.

Similarly, to know the goddess, it helps to see a wide variety of her many different faces. The Goddess Companion by Patricia Monaghan will help you explore a different facet of her glorious diversity every day. Each daily prayer, from ancient and traditional sources, and the accompanying reading, will allow you to meditate upon the divine lessons within our most powerful human experiences: creation, celebration, birth, beauty, abundance, loss, love, worship, and all the cycles of the seasons and our lives. The Goddess Companion fosters the connection between self and spirit, clearing a sacred space in your thoughts for new insights to take root and grow. When you take time each day to read these lyrical ancient prayers, you will recognize daily opportunities for spiritual change--and you will honor and nurture the divine feminine that dwells within. You must get The Goddess Companion
