"The Goddess Path" Book Review

"The Goddess Path: Myths, Invocations & Rituals" by Patricia Monaghan

 


This book is about various Goddesses from different cultures across the world. It also explains the Goddess in all of her aspects, the Maiden, Mother, and Crone.

 

Each chapter is dedicated to a Goddess. It starts off with an invocation and then goes into the myth and legend of the different Goddesses and their rituals, symbols, and celebrations.

 

At the end of each chapter the reader is encouraged to ask themselves a series of questions meant to deepen your connection to the Goddesses and reflect on their meaning in your own life.

 

"The goddess path is within you…

that is where she lives, even when you forget to look for her.

Look for her there, and you will always find her."

The Goddess Path, Patricia Monoghan

 

Something I appreciate about this book is that it doesn't just skim the surface. Even though the sections on the Goddesses are brief, it is still able to dive deep into their myth and meaning.

 

This book has inspired me to strengthen my relationship with the Goddess. To actively go to sacred sites devoted to the Goddess. To visit wells, stone circles, and ancient temples. But also to honour her more in my daily life.

 

This book would be a wonderful addition to any witchcraft practitioners' library. I found the rituals and insights on each Goddess to be extremely useful. I know I will be referring back to this book time and time again.
