Revisiting the Feminine Face of God

August 27, 2009 By: Nora Nickerson Category: Sacred Spirit Book Club

I first read The Feminine Face of God by Sherry Anderson and Patricia Hopkins in the mid 1990s and it deeply resonated with me then.  At the time I was working as a nurse practitioner with homeless teens and feeling a dearth of the sacred feminine in our society.  My work was really dark and in order to stay centered I felt I needed a connection with a feminine deity and so at that time Kuan Yin became my guide.

The Feminine Face of God

For me she embodied the quintessence of the sacred feminine that I had always felt at a cellular and cosmic level since I was a little girl.  She was kind, compassionate, receptive, tender, powerful and open-hearted all qualities that I wanted to find and  nurture within myself.

And now it is fifteen years later and I have gladly reread The Feminine Face of God.  What I love about this book is how Sherry Anderson and Patricia Hopkins encompass so many stories of a variety of forms and idealogies that can help women everywhere see the possibility of bringing their own idea of the essence of the sacred into their daily lives.  This wonderful little book invites us, gives us permission to delve deeper and deeper into ourselves, into the mystery for all of our answers.
