Goddess Centered Practice

In the woods behind my house rest a collection of nine large flat rocks. Daily, I walk down to these “priestess rocks” for some sacred time alone to pray, meditate, consider, and be. Often, while in this space, I open my mouth and poetry comes out. I’ve come to see this experience as "theapoetics"—experiencing the Goddess through direct “revelation,” framed in language. As Stanley Hopper originally described in the 1970’s, it is possible to “…replace theology, the rationalistic interpretation of belief, with theopoetics, finding God[dess] through poetry and fiction, which neither wither before modern science nor conflict with the complexity of what we know now to be the self.” Theapoetics might also be described, “as a means of engaging language and perception in such a way that one enters into a radical relation with the divine, the other, and the creation in which all occurs.”

Poem: Finding Feathers

Posted by on in SageWoman Blogs

They say that every time

you find a feather

it is a sign you 

are in the right place,

and on right path. 

Let us quiet our minds 

and soften our shoulders. 

Let us reach out 

until we feel the touch 

of the holy. 

Let us drop into presence, 

the soft, open 

space of awareness.

    Molly,

    Love the graphic.

    I kid you not. Many years ago, I was outside reading a book during a break at work. A crow feather fell out of the sky and landed in front of me.

    I still have it. Thanks for sharing!
