Goddess Spirituality & Priestess Practice Resources

Goddess Spirituality and Priestess Practice Resources

Goddess Spirituality is a movement … a practice … a belief system made up of women and men from all walks of life and all types of religious backgrounds and experiences.  A belief in Goddess as the primary divinity, the Creatrix, is one of the common factors of those who identify with Goddess Spirituality.  Ways of worship, ceremonial practices and expression of Goddess Spirituality is fluid and reflects a “being-ness” rather than dogma and there are no set rules.  Goddess Spirituality can exist within traditional religious frameworks and can also exist without any framework at all.  In the end, it comes down to your personal relationship with Goddess or divinity and a female-centric approach to the world.
