Reveal: A Sacred Manual for Getting Spiritually Naked by Meggan Watterson
In the interest of full disclosure: I'm a guy, but I did get a lot out of this book. I've heard many male authors and guru types speak of the Divine Feminine, but always as something that's making a comeback or soon to be re-ushered in. Never many details offered other than, religious history has treated women horribly, but that's changing. What I particularly enjoyed were the feminine goddess stories like Ishtar and Isis and several others. The author's pilgrimages to holy sites, also make the book worth reading. They can best be described as adventures. Her authenticity and frankness in speaking about her diagnosis with General Anxiety Disorder is something I found brave, and inspiring. Too often our spiritual teachers are expected to be perfect, it's nice to see an author admit they're human for a change. There's a lot to study here, fascinating on many levels. I had no idea there was an entire language created, and only spoken among certain women in our past. I don't want to give too much away, it's a cool story. Meggan Watterson has written a great book. I received a copy of this book for free, for review purposes from Hay House. I was not paid for my opinion, and it's my honest assessment.
