Now you can turn every day into a day dedicated to the goddess and your own personal spiritual evolution, when you get "The Goddess Companion" by Patricia Monaghan. Turn to "The Goddess Companion" each day for a clearer insight into how the divine flows through your life. This spirit-nourishing collection of 366 authentic goddess prayers, invocations, chants, and songs was culled from dozens of diverse eras and cultures. Each ancient prayer rings out in clear language that maintains the sacred spirit of the originals. -A different traditional prayer, invocation, or chant to the goddess for each day of the year -Each is illuminated by readings about the ancient quote that offer rich material for reflection, inspiration, and bliss -Multiple indices allow you to find information by goddess name, subject, or cultural origin -Explore the goddess as envisioned by 68 different cultures throughout the ages--including the Americas, classical Greece and Rome, Asia, ancient Sumeria and Babylonia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa -Find prayers that encompass nearly 130 aspects of the goddess, from Aida Weydo and Amaterasu to White Buffalo Calf Woman and Zemyna -Use the perpetual calendar to meditate upon one goddess prayer each day "The Goddess Companion" does far more than simply give you meditations and prayers. The readings associated with each will give you incredible insights into a wide variety of cultures and, just as importantly, into your very nature. Written by one of the leaders of the contemporary goddess movement, "The Goddess Companion "will help you on your spiritual path to self-understanding.

Product Description

From Amazon

Prayers, poems, and songs to the Goddess from around the world and across the ages have been collected and adapted for the modern devotee in The Goddess Companion: Daily Meditations on the Feminine Spirit. Author Patricia Monaghan offers a disparate meditation for each day of the year, including February 29--April 5 is a Lithuanian folksong; August 6 a quotation from Proverbs; October 17 a Korean shaman's chant. After each prayer there is a two-paragraph "thought for the day" in which Monaghan offers the reader philosophical observations or helpful advice designed to assist living and growing in the spirit of the feminine. The very pretty purple and gold-embossed cover makes it an excellent nightstand adornment, and the gentle meditations are a stress-reducing way to begin or end your day by honoring Her and Her spirit in yourself. --P. Randall Cohan

5.0 out of 5 stars Start your day the Goddess way... Oct. 6 2002
Format:Paperback
This book provides a perfect way to give yourself a nice morning ritual or meditation. It provides a daily poem or song on a variety of female dieties, along with a short reflection on how it is applied to daily life. I like that Monaghan includes Goddesses from a variety of cultures from all over the world. Her love of the feminine spirit definitely shines through. Another special feature is that you can use the index in a variety of ways. It has listings sorted by diety, or by subject matter, also by country, that way, you can find what you need when you have a specific purpose in mind. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Don't be without this lovely book. May 30 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have gone almost a full year (the complete book) with this book providing me with comfort, inspiration, and food for thought each day. I have another book which claims to offer Goddess inspirations in the same day by day format, but it doesn't touch this one, which obviously comes from a learned, thoughtful, spiritual, experienced writer. I read quotes from each book each day, but I save this one for last, because it is by far the best. The quote from a folk song or classical work followed by an insightful elaboration on the theme is always just enough - not too long, not too short. Thank you, Ms. Monaghan, for enriching my life each day.

Now here is a goddess meditation book with some depth! The daily poems and songs from ancient texts are rich in beauty, pointedly as diverse as the goddess herself. They are a wonderful source for personal and communal ritual. What I love the most is Monaghan's own reflections. It is so rare to have a poet scholar with the emotional depth, wisdom and incisive mind that strips away illusion to find both the succulent fruit and the flesh stripped bone. Life is beautiful and hard. For me, a meditation book needs to touch where my life touches. This one does. I cheat. I prowl around this book, not being obedient to the prescribed day. February 26 is one of my favorites. "I have eaten from her drum./ I have drunk from her cymbal./ I have carried her sacred objects./ I have prayed in her secret chamber." ( Greek initiate prayer). Monaghan writes, " The silence of the centuries tells us as much as a written script might about the mystery of life and death. The goddess reigns over them both. She is both our speech and our silence." Many have written using Monaghan's works as their source. In this book we have the real voice. I recommend The Goddess Companion very highly.
