From the Inside Flap
The Greek goddesses have inspired the female imagination for more then three thousand years. Representing aspects of the female psyche, these goddesses have touched the lives of countless women over time. The profound emotional experiences of womanhood - being a daughter, being a sister, becoming a wife, bearing a child, experiencing sexual passion, love, and jealousy - are as timeless as the myths themselves. "Conversations with the Goddesses" explores these ancient myths, revealing the personalities of seven female divinities - Aphrodite, Artemis, Athena, Demeter, Hera, Hestia, and Persephone - to help women grow and understand their own emotional patterns, and to learn to balance and navigate the challenges of life.
As a bridge between the ancient and modern worlds, knowledge of the goddesses and their individual essences will help you:
- Awaken and restore the natural power within you
- Understand the principles of female expression
- Enrich your personal relationships
- Bring out your hidden qualities, and help you use them to your best advantage
By embracing the unique characteristics of these immortal beings, you will blaze a path to freedom and wholeness. In the pages of this book, you will find literary reflections by Colette, Shakespeare, Amy Tan, and others that give each goddess her own voice and shed light on her distinctive qualities, as well as paintings, drawings, and sculpture that explore such emblematic icons as Aphrodite's scallop shell, symbolic of femininity. More than just a beautiful paean to the goddesses this powerful guide will help you grow to understand your inner beauty, strength, and wisdom.

I now work for the City of West Hollywood and continue to find seemingly infinite applications for goddess wisdom. In March of this year I based a well-received Women's History Month presentation upon Ms. Stassinopoulos' book. I adapted this talk for the American Biographical Institute/International Biographical Centre's 27th Millennium Congress on Arts and Communications in Washington, DC which was attended by delegates from 44 nations. The Women of Achievement panel was held on Independence Day (how apropos!) and the illuminating discussions of Artemis, Athena, and Hestia found in CONVERSATIONS WITH THE GODDESSES served to ground my scholastic and civic accomplishments. Women (and men) from all over the world responded with almost overwhelming enthusiasm to these timeless insights and Ms. Stassinopoulos can be assured that Hestia's torch is being carried into the new millennium by these global citizens. This was one of the peak experiences of my professional life and I am sure that CONVERSATIONS will be of similar benefit to many other readers.
As an activist I especially appreciated Ms. Stassinopoulis' many references to 19th- and 20th-century feminists. I found the illustrations and literary reflections to be an especially valuable feature of this wondrous book, which I cannot recommend highly enough and will give as a gift to all the important women in my own life.
