“The woman who is virgin, one-in-herself, does what she does – not because of any desire to please, not to be liked, or to be approved, even by herself; not because of any desire to gain power over another… but because what she does is true.” (Esther Harding, Woman’s Mysteries)

This book is about the struggle to become conscious.  It is about overcoming addictions – to food, drugs, work, etc.  It is about the wisdom of the body, initiation rituals, and dreams.  It is about relationship and the search for personal identity.  It is a celebration of the feminine, both in men and in women.  It is about becoming free.

The Pregnant Virgin explores a process of change akin to the metamorphosis of caterpillar to chrysalis to butterfly.  It describes periods in the chrysalis when life as we have known it is over and we are effectively alone.  No longer who we were, we know not who we may become.

At such times a thinking heart can bring us closer to our inner virgin, “one-in-herself”, forever open to new life, new possibilities – our own unique truth.
