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.

From the Publisher
I'm sure you remember the story of the three blind men and the elephant. They each touch a part of the elephant and think that their description is complete. However, the only way to truly know what the elephant looks like is to take all of their descriptions together.
Similarly, to know the goddess, it helps to see a wide variety of her many different faces. The Goddess Companion
by Patricia Monaghan will help you explore a different facet of her glorious diversity every day. Each daily prayer, from ancient and traditional sources, and the accompanying reading, will allow you to meditate upon the divine lessons within our most powerful human experiences: creation, celebration, birth, beauty, abundance, loss, love, worship, and all the cycles of the seasons and our lives. The Goddess Companion
fosters the connection between self and spirit, clearing a sacred space in your thoughts for new insights to take root and grow. When you take time each day to read these lyrical ancient prayers, you will recognize daily opportunities for spiritual changeand you will honor and nurture the divine feminine that dwells within.
