The Queen of Heaven is a blog about the Divine Feminine in her many forms, from the ancient Mother of the Universe to the Christian Mary venerated by so many today. Whether she is beheld in the face of the sun, in the green garment of life on earth, or in the cloak of the starlit night sky, she is a memory of the great goddess our ancestors knew as the mother of all things. Barely remembered, she has long been demoted to lesser wife of male gods or veiled in the guise of semi-divine sainthood. Still, meditation on her images and remembrance of her ancient names can be a profound practice and catalyst for healing and change. Unlike her male counterparts and replacements, she is identified not only as the source of the universe but also its substance. Dwelling within all things, she nurtures us like a mother and suggests to us a different way of being in the world. My hope is to further understanding of her tremendous presence, learning a bit more about her each day and sharing that journey with you, should you choose to join me.
