A Woman's Journey from Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine.
For years, award-winning author Sue Monk Kidd recounted the joys and sorrows of her life as a Christian in books and essays that touched the hearts of readers everywhere. Then, in the late 1980s, Kidd experienced an unexpected awakening, one that brought her life into conflict with every aspect of her former life. She began a journey toward a feminine spirituality.
With the exceptional storytelling skills that have helped make her name, Kidd tells her very personal tales of fear, anger healing, and freedom she experienced on the path toward to wholeness that women have lost within the patriarchal faith traditions.
From a jarring encounter with sexism in a suburban drugstore, to monastery retreats and to rituals in the caves of Crete, she reveals a new level of feminine spiritual consciousness for all women - one that retains a meaningful connection with "the deep song of Christianity", embraces the sacredness of ordinary women's experience, and has the power to transform in the most positive ways every fundamental relationship in a woman's life - her marriage, her career, and her religion.
