The Sacred Feminine Through The Ages

Voices of visionary women on power and belief

A fascinating history of women’s belief, faith and spirituality, as told through the art and writing of over 30 women of wisdom.



This is an exploration of feminine spirituality from the beginning of time to the present day.

These extraordinary women have expressed their experiences of the agony and ecstasy of pursuing spiritual enlightenment through their poetry and prose, which is beautiful, inspirational and very moving.

Paula Marvelly has selected powerful and evocative words of wisdom from women of widely differing ages and faiths, including but not limited to Jewish, Christian, Sufi, Hindu, Buddhist or Taoist. The author reveals the common and overriding theme between them, which can be expressed as “non-duality” – not two but one. This is the experience of losing one’s individuality and of becoming one with the universe.

Whether you are interested in reviving lost and misunderstood women of history, or you are looking to find new ways to understand the many ancient questions that generations before us have been asking, you will discover a wealth of wisdom and inspiration from these women of wisdom:
