"When God Was a Woman"
Author and scholar
Today I did a spiritual direction session via Skype with another amazing, highly intelligent, spiritually-sensitive young woman. I find it fascinating to see that although I've spent decades honing my skills regarding male issues and masculine spirituality, very few men contact me to discuss their spiritual journey. It is mostly women of the Millennial Generation who end up coming to me for spiritual counsel. I am utterly amazed at the number of highly intelligent, powerful, motivated, spiritually sensitive young women I have the pleasure of serving. I suppose the Creator knew what She was doing when I was given two beautiful, smart, articulate and creative daughters, both now in their thirties. We've had so many wonderful conversations about life and spirituality over the years - while going out for coffee, sitting around the campfire, or sharing family dinners - that I feel amazingly blessed. In addition, I know so many amazingly spiritual women - locally, via social media, and through other internet connections. And then of course I've lived for the past 36 years with the most wise, generous, spiritually-sensitive and warm woman I could possibly imagine. For me there is no question: WOMEN are some of the Great Mystery's most amazing incarnations!
