Friday staff pick: Goddess Remembered

My name is Audrey-Rose and I’m a member of the web team working on the site. In my off-time, I’m a writer and am always on the prowl for the next interesting story to add to the massive lexicon that drives my interests and provokes my imagination.

Donna Read, in 1989, provided a snapshot of history; a glimpse into the 35,000 year-old story of goddess religions and wove a story that drew me in. The Goddess Remembered is the first of 3 films; followed by The Burning Times and Full Circle. Thought provoking and inspired, I remember seeking out more to the story and discovering the urge to create a story of my own.

If you love history as much as I do…enjoy!

  1. These three films form a great basis for a broader understanding of female spirituality and metaphor. May I also suggest a great book on creativity called Centering by an American potter M.C. Richards? There’s a great DVD made of her life theories by Kane-Lewis Productions called M.C. Richards: The Fire Within.
