A Jig By the Dissident Female

Sue Monk Kidd was introduced to me by my sister a few years ago and I stumbled upon this quote from The Dance of the Dissident Daughter: A Woman’s Journey From Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine while looking at the art exhibiting in Mars Hill’s (the grad school) common area…

The symbol of Goddess gives us permission. She teaches us to embrace the holiness of every natural, ordinary, sensual dying moment. Patriarchy may try to negate body and flee earth with its constant heartbeat of death, but Goddess forces us back to embrace them, to take our human life in our arms and clasp it for the divine life it is – the nice, sanitary, harmonious moment as well as the painful, dark, splintered ones.
