** TWO PROPOSED GODDESS BOOKS FOR RELEASE IN 2014**

It is with much delight to announce that The Goddess House's own Priestess in Residence is in the process of finalising a manuscript for her book on the Divine Feminine, the Great Goddess.  This book will focus on various aspects of the Goddess, and will include detailed background information into the associated myths and folklore, sacred devotional poetry, as well as suggestions as to how to honour and forge a deeper and more personal connection with these aspects of the Goddess.

This book, yet to be titled, is envisaged to be available mid 2014 once a suitable cover design has been finalised.

A further book that is based on working with the Goddess throughout the sacred year, will be available later in 2014/early 2015.  This book will draw inspiration from the numerous rituals, activities as well as other events hosted by The Goddess House sicne 2007, placing them into a yearly guide that will enable the reader to again a deeper personal connection with the Great Goddess through her sacred festivals and seasonal rites. 

While the year will be based around the seasons as how they appear in the Southern Hemisphere, with a small adjustment, readers from the Northern Hemisphere will also be able to participate and experience working with the Goddess on a yearly basis.

Details as how to order these publications will be made available in due course.

Sacred Goddess Circles

Exhortation of Isis

You are She in the dust of whose feet is the hosts of Heaven,
Whose body encircles the Universe,
Who turns the Earth in its orb,
Who gives light to the Sun,
Who rules the World.

You tread death underfoot.
To Thee, the stars are responsive,
To Thee the seasons turn and the Gods rejoice
And the elements are in subjugation.


You are She that is the natural Mother of all things,
Mistress and governor of all elements,
The initial progeny of worlds,
Chief of Divine powers,
Queen of Heaven,
Principle of all the Gods celestial and the light of Goddesses.

At Your will are disposed the planets of the air,
The wholesome winds of the seas
And the silences of the unseen world.
