The first step in calling the Great Mother home is the visioning step. Just as seeing is believing, believing is also seeing. When I first saw these tender and triumphant images by Tammy Trejo, my heart lit up like a lantern. I felt it was possible to resurrect Her, to bring Her to life again. Tammy haired eight Goddesses and fleshed out each of their archetypes with images of contemporary women. She has captured the hearth goddess, the hunter, the lover, the visionary, the protector, the healer, the birther, the transformer.
She has given us images to spark our imagination, reignite our sacred feminine fire, explode our hope for a more balanced world within and without. These photographs are holy icons pointing to a new world. Take heart. The Great Mother is returning.
