Abstract

In this thesis I use organic inquiry as a method to understand the transformative process when studying the collective history of the Great Goddess. The study shines a light on the history of the ancient Great Goddess, the impact of the invention of the alphabet, and how the written word influenced women’s roles and the role of the Divine Feminine as seen through the lens of Leonard Shlain, and additionally, the artistic work of contemporary mystic Meinrad Craighead. The transformative impact of the study is explored through the use of stories as a tool for reclaiming connection to a grounding, creative source. Conclusions are that a sense of wholeness can be lost when a woman loses the tethering balance of both right and left-brained integration and this disconnect can be overcome by seeking connection through telling of personal stories.
