The Divine Feminine Fire tells the stories of five women and two saints, Christian and Hindu – and how the divine feminine fire, awakening within them, ignited an extraordinary creative outpouring. Woven around these stories is an exploration of the surprising parallels found in Shakti, Sophia, and Shekinah – and the way the divine feminine can light your own creative fire. Exercises included
