Women and Spirituality Part 1 of 3: Goddess Remembered

Goddess Remembered is the first in a series of three films about Women and Spirituality made by Donna Reed . Part 1 focuses on the existence of pre-Christian Goddess-worshiping religions, which fostered an egalitarian society based on human cooperation. This civilization thrived for a long time without the intrusion of war. Visits to Paleolithic caves in France and temples in Crete give a glimpse of artifacts from this gynocentric world.

Scholars Merlin Stone, Jean Bolen and Charlene Spretnak draw connections between these ancient cultures, and women's contemporary interest in a spirituality based on harmony with nature. (Edited from spiritualityandpractice.com)
