"Why She & Why a Dark Goddess" by Chandra Alexandre, Ph.D.
Humanity is now experiencing a shift in evolutionary consciousness especially catalyzed and facilitated by the Divine Female. Goddess, as She is often called, can be represented through a variety of guises, forms, and names; but it is because we tend to think of “God” as strictly male (and usually transcendent) that I avoid this term when speaking about Her, although she is nonetheless that. In this brief introduction to the Dark Goddess, I will alternatively represent Her using capitalization or lower case (e.g., “Her” and “her,” or “Goddess” and “goddess”) and will universalize or particularize my articulations in order to shatter limiting notions of the Great Mystery. But first, why focus on Her?. January 2016
