Sacred Feminine: 20 Great Books

IMG_4038

I have promised many of you to put together a reading list for books I recommend related to the Sacred Feminine and what it means to be an educated, conscious, loving and empowered woman in her female body today.

Now this list is quite wide reaching. It includes some easy reads for those touching the subject, and some more intense reads for those of you really committing to the Sacred Feminine path.

There are some Yogic, some Tantric and some Shamanic reads, reflecting mythology, energy and consciousness. There are some that reflect history and science, and some focusing on the physical body, hormones, menstrual cycle and menopause, sexuality and wellbeing.

They are in no specific order really and I’ll admit that I have not managed to read all of these books yet. There are many other books than influence and inspire me as a woman but I don’t categorise as Sacred Feminine. I also don’t have any books focused on sacred pregnancy or mothering in here (reflection of my own interests!)

This is a start. Based on your inputs I’ll be happy to add and improve the list.

So here goes:

  1. Wonderful!!! Thank you for compiling this fantastic resource. I love that Diana Richardson is here. I would add Cunt (Inga Muscio) and When God Was A Woman (Merlin Stone). Can’t wait to see what others add.
