The Goddess is coming back, but the one we're least familiar with lies under our feet. In her many faces she's been buried in dry and awkward translations. Written in the first person, these provocative and surprising renderings of Celtic tales take us on a challenging journey in which the twelve most ancient and extraordinary goddesses of the land reveal their light and dark faces. In bringing their symbolism to life for today they restore our earlier understanding of war, sex and death. Encounters the endurance of Branwen, the wit of Rhiannon, the daring of Medbh, the magic of Ceridwen, the testing of Arhianrhod, the betrayal of Deirdre and the power of the Morrigan. Share her spiritual journey. Learn from her loves, her challenges, and how she triumphs through her pain. Travel with her and be ready to receive the gifts she has to offer
