Women in Greek Mythography

What they didn’t teach us about women in Greek myth and iconography: a richly illustrated  ethnohistorical sourcebook. Women’s dance, ceremony, and spiritual culture from 1600 BCE to 300 CE: bee and snake shapeshifters, priestesses, prophecy, goddess temples. But also sexual politics of war and captivity, conquest and slaving, and the origins of “rape culture” in Western Civ. Ariadne of the Labyrinth, Herophile the Sibyl, the diviner Manto, Iō the once-priestess of Hera; the Libyan Danaides, Helen of Sparta, Kassandra of Troy, and the prophetic but persecuted daughter, Melanippe the Wise.

Judy Grahn is an internationally-recognized poet, writer, and social theorist. She is the author of fourteen books including the groundbreaking Another Mother Tongue, Blood, Bread, and Roses: How Menstruation Created the World, and most recently, A Simple Revolution. Eruptions of Inanna, and Hanging on Our Own Bones. Her website is

Revised and updated edition of Judy Grahn’s groundbreaking book on the lesbian poetic tradition.

“Poetry was important to the women’s movement and especially so to Lesbians. More than one Lesbian has been kept from floundering on the rocks of alienation from her own culture, her own center, by having access, at least, to Lesbian poetry… Through the centuries, our poetry has held that position in the branches of its lines, in fragments, and in the code of imagery. It is time, now, to begin to reveal that tradition.”

—From Judy Grahn’s Introduction to The Highest Apple

Lesbian Poetic Traditions: Judy Grahn, Julie R. Enszer, JP Howard & Alicia Mountain | LIVE from NYPL
The iconic feminist poet Judy Grahn re-explores the traditions of lesbian poetry from Sappho to Pat Parker and beyond.

Eruptions of Inanna 

2022 Sarasvati Award Winner from ASWM

“Path-breaking lesbian poet and scholar Judy Grahn returns to the stories of Inanna, the Mesopotamian goddess of erotic love and justice, to reimagine the contemporary world” –Nightboat Books

Touching Creatures, Touching Spirit 

Touching Creatures, Touching Spirit illustrates with true stories that we live in an interactive, aware world in which the creatures around us in our neighborhoods know us and sometimes reach across to us, empathically and helpfully. Implications are that all beings live in a possible “common mind” from which our mass culture has disconnected, but which is only a heartbeat and some concentrated attention away. This mind encompasses microbial life and insects as well as creatures and extends to nonmaterial intelligence as well—that is to say, spirit.” –Red Hen Press

Descent to the Roses

Descent to the Roses of a Family: A Poet’s Journey into Anti-Racism and Personal Social Healing is for those courageous enough to explore how family dynamics create and imprint the structures of white supremacy in each of us. Judy Grahn has used her masterful poem to expose and closely examine her own family’s roses (and thorns) of toxic racism and white supremacy. Grahn uses rich back-stories and mythology to guide us in the process of understanding and healing the split psyche that white supremacy causes and requires.” –Commonality Press

Amidah in the Pandemic: Received Blessings

by Leiah Bowden

A soul’s response to the COVID 19 pandemic, a waterfall of channeled messages assuring us of our divine strengths.

This book is a revelation. Or perhaps more like 72 revelations. Each one is unique; each one is a poem, a prayer, and a prophecy. Mystical and visceral. Divine and human. They lift the soul and crack the heart open. My prescription would be to start each morning with one of Leiah’s Amidah Gifts, and let it reverberate through the day. I can’t imagine a richer practice or better medicine. ~Rabbi Irwin Keller, Spiritual Leader, Ner Shalom

In the midst of our collective despair, Leiah Bowden opened the channels to the inflowing of Divine Wisdom from the highest realms. Her words are not only a balm that heals the deepest recesses of our troubled souls, but also invites us to experience ourselves and our world as overflowing with love and possibility beyond our imagining. What a gift! ~Shoshana Fershtman, JD, PhD, Jungian analyst and psychologist, and author of The Mystical Exodus in Jungian Perspective: Transforming Trauma and the Wellsprings of Renewal.

Witches and Pagans: Women in European Folk Religion, 700-1100 by Max Dashu

Swa wiccan taeca∂ ::: “as the witches teach.”

So, explained an Old English translator, witches counseled the people to “bring their offerings to earth-fast stone, and also to trees and to wellsprings—as the witches teach.”

These women were carrying out ceremonies of reverence for Nature—something very different than what we have been taught about witches…

Original Resistance: Reclaiming Lilith,
Reclaiming Ourselves

“There is, perhaps, no more powerful archetype of female resistance than Lilith. As women across the globe rise up against the patriarchy, Lilith stands beside them, misogyny’s original challenger. This anthology—a chorus of voices hitting chords of defiance, liberation, anger and joy—reclaims the goodness of women bold enough to hold tight to their essence. Through poetry, prose, incantation, prayer and imagery, women from all walks of life invite you to join them in the revolutionary act of claiming their place—of reclaiming themselves.” –Girl God Books

“Women (and the people who love us) must dig deep into our souls to liberate the questions that have been locked away in our time capsules. We must traverse the annals of history to unearth the sacred sites that have been violently gentrified by white patriarchy. We must find the Divine Truth that cannot be claimed, contained or tamed. What better place to start than at the beginning with Lilith, the world’s first woman.” –Christena Cleveland, Ph.D., in her Preface

Re-membering with Goddess

“Understanding trauma is liberating. Healing trauma is revolutionary. Speaking about trauma is political. Women and their bodies are no longer willing to be silent to or be the secret store of patriarchal abuse, control, and power. Goddess is showing the way, cell-by-cell, emotion-by-emotion, sensation-by-sensation. Healing trauma is a portal for freedom and a gateway to societal and collective change.

Re-Membering with Goddess is an anthology of women’s experiences of trauma—trauma as a result of patriarchy; trauma perpetuated by patriarchy; and how through personal healing of trauma the Goddess is re-membered, re-embodied and resurrected.” –Girl God Books

My Name is Medusa by Glenys Livingstone Illustrated by Arna Baartz

A new children’s book , the story of the greatly misunderstood Goddess, including why she likes snakes.

‘My name is Medusa’ explores the “scary” dark side, the potency of nature and the importance of dreams.

Arna Baartz gorgeously illustrates this tale by Glenys Livingstone, teaching children (big and small) that our power often lies in what we have been taught to fear and revile.

Jesus, Muhammad and the Goddess

35 International contributors reflect on finding Goddess within (and without) Christianity and Islam.

“Can You Kill the Spirit? What Happened to Female Imagery for God in Christian Worship?” ~Carol P. Christ, Ph.D

“By altering tradition – and amending the translation from the (now) traditional “He” to “She” – does the collective consciousness of the Ummah shift? Do we authentically reclaim The Divine Feminine inside Allah that was acknowledged 1400 years ago? Do we eliminate the neo-patriarchal paradigm that infects the Islam of our “modern” era?” ~Shahla Khan Salter

“How did we go from a place where women were honored and respected and rape was inconceivable, to a place where women are treated as little more than intelligent animals to be used and tossed away?” ~Liona Rowan

Clear Quartz Twin

At first glance she appears to be a Twin Quartz as she exhibits two terminations at the top. But wait, there might be three! Gaze within her and you will find three rainbows. She also features an Isis face that brings in a beautifully strong and healing Goddess energy.

Rose Quartz and Rhodochrosite Meditation Amulet

Inspired by malas and rosaries, this beauty features a raw Rose Quartz cabochon suspended from a strand of faceted Rose Quartz and Rhodochrosite beads. Approximately 30 inches in length she can be worn as a necklace as well as used in your meditations. Where a traditional Mala has 108 beads, this beauty has 54 beads. Two rounds of the strand of beads will give you a count of 108 if you do a traditional mantra meditation.
