The Goddess is the symbol of our highest responsibility to one another
“Goddess "worship," it must be stressed, is an ancient technology meant to trigger the empathic drives of our collective right hemispheres.
This is not about joining a religion or passing new laws.
This does not cost any money or even require anybody to change worldviews or political affiliations.
This is about recognizing that life is precious and sacred and that by increasing the dignity and freedom of all living things, we increase our own.
The Goddess is the symbol of our highest responsibility to one another.
Through understanding eyes, she is that purest image of our own potential to evolve from Homo sapien (the knowing creature) to Homo empathicus (the empathic creature). She allows us to see ourselves in the Other and, thus, to embrace it.”
