The Great Mother is humanity’s most primordial, pervasive, and fruitful image of reality. Either secreatly or openly she appears with extra-ordinary power wisdom and tenderness at the core of every noble culture. She illuminates the entire universe because she is not some local or limited goddess but our Universal Mother. She expresses herself fluently through and within every sacred tradition, without needing to call attention to her feminine nature.
