The Sacred Feminine – Christine Valters Paintner 

May 3, 2016

“Stories of Mary have been used in various ways to reinforce a certain image of womanhood. In the Christian tradition which can lean so heavily on images of male sanctity and masculine divinity, Mary offers us another perspective. She is the embodiment of the sacred feminine, a window into another understanding of the divine presence.”
 — Christine Valters Paintner, PhD Illuminating the Way: Embracing the Wisdom of Monks and Mystics
