In Minerva’s Owls, Mary Petiet weaves a fascinating and colorful web of yoga, healing and Western wisdom traditions. Filled with the infinite knowing of the feminine divine, this slim volume is packed with enduring wisdom. You will recover your deepest self in these pages.(Trista Hendren, author of The Girl God series)
Minerva’s Owls reads like downloaded sacred wisdom. Petiet has woven a luxurious tapestry, weaving the elements of wisdom, psychology, herstory, yoga and sacred art to tell the tale of human evolution, ultimately leading us full circle, back to Source, our Great Mother. I loved her refresher explaining how we got to this place in time, as well as her wisdom to help us reconnect, even in our busy and material world. Truly comprehensive and inspiring!(Rev. Dr. Karen Tate, Author, Speaker, Radio Show Host)

“Minerva’s Owls” tells the story of where we came from and how we got to where we are now; of how we came from the Goddess, the world-wide worship of the Mother and matriarchal, women-affirming societies to a war-like God and technology driven societies.
It tells the story of how the balance of the world, and our own individual balance was disrupted, while the Feminine was buried within, and by the Masculine. It is why the balance is disrupted still.
Using her personal experience with yoga and what it has taught her, along with individual chapters on each chakra, Ms. Petiet explains the early matriarchal cultures and how they were taken over and destroyed, changing the world, as the masculine supplanted the feminine, which is where we are, still, to this day.
As she describes both feminine and masculine archetypes, she touches on Native American Spirituality and Eastern thought to explain that not only do we all need, and seek, connection, but why it is necessary.
Ms. Petiet has given us a guide on what we must be done to return our planet and ourselves to a balance of both energies, something that is needed for our survival.
We must return to the Wisdom, return to the Feminine, return to the Source.
If you have an interest in how we have gotten from there to here; if you have a desire to find a way back to personal balance and a deeper consciousness; if you have a wish to help the planet move forward in an evolved, more connected way, then by all means pick up “Minerva’s Owls”.
Against an analysis of civilizational milestones, mythology and spiritual iconography, Petiet outlines a perspective of the masculine/feminine source balance and how a variety of “technical” advances throughout history have impacted this (im)balance.
Petiet may not offer a definitive way forward, or a “how do we fix this,” however she does guide us to our next step: connection to our inner wisdom, connection to each other and connection to the Source. We must trust ourselves in the knowledge we have but may fear to access. And with this inner wisdom come to fore, we must choose wisely in our connectedness with the modern-day material world.
In re-establishing this inner and outer balance, we have the power to advance the march towards the next step (hopefully forward) in the evolution of our collective consciousness and of our material world. I found myself rereading, underlining (in pen!) and nodding like a bobble head doll through almost every page.
have lost touch with the divine feminine within, and how, individually and culturally, we can still reclaim our connections with source energy and all of life in its radiant abundance and beauty. I will read this book again and again. So much great, inspiring information for all of us "on the path".
