Review: Encountering the Dark Goddess by Frances Billinghurst


The Dark Goddess is often associated with the Underworld where she leads the uninitiated through a transformative journey of self-discovery, change and soul renewal. She is connected with the unwanted, the forgotten, the ignored or even ashamed parts of our psyche. However there is more to her than that.

Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms guides you through what this challenging facet of the Divine Feminine, the Dark Goddess, is truly about, and encourages you to step through the veils into her hidden realm to explore 13 aspects of herself.

Whether you seek healing from past trauma, release from fears or acceptance of the “unacceptable” aspects of your self, Encountering the Dark Goddess: A Journey into the Shadow Realms offers ways for you to transform and heal your life through the power of meditation, ritual and inner journeying with the Dark Goddess into her shadowy realms. Use the 13 goddess myths as a guide to discover how to remove the stagnant and unwanted and embrace the ever changing aspects of life that can drag us into the pits of despair.

When we connect to the Dark Goddess, we are able to find the light within the darkness and our lives are enriched through the integration of all aspects of our soul as a perfect whole.

If you have any interest in Hekate, just beginning or further in, this book will provide you with a huge insight into working with her. The book includes casting circles, the elements of Hekate, calling upon her, bone oracles, offerings, spells and more.

The book takes you on a journey to meet, discover and uncover the Dark Goddess within. It can be a truly enlightening pathway. The author uses stories and myths that take the reader down into the Underworld and the shadows with the intention of self discovery and healing. The book also introduces us to many of the dark goddesses such as Lilith, Kali and Hel, each one with their own pathway for us to follow.
