This book reveals that the divine feminine dwells, at one level or another, in all of us. Filled with empowering first-hand experiences of the divine feminine from spiritual teachers and students from around the world, this book serves as a stepping-off point for your spiritual journey.
Everyone holds the divine within them, but sometimes it can be hard to find within ourselves. You Are Divine shares dozens of journal prompts with supportive narratives and inspiring advice so you can explore your own process for taking back power, calling for justice and balance, following your heart, recognizing and celebrating the divine, connecting with your creativity, exploring eco-feminism, and much more.
"As a Baha'i, I understand God to be 'an Unknowable Essence.' How could a sculpture, after all, understand its sculptor? God is neither male nor female but is the Source of all the attributes we recognize as belonging to each. Were it not so, women would possess qualities of which God is bereft. In her beautifully written book, Langley defines and examines those qualities we think of as feminine, encouraging us to embrace and nurture them, even as we embrace and nurture the other half of our inheritance, the 'masculine' qualities. We were created to be noble beings and have treasured within us all the attributes of God; we need only discover and exercise them. You Are Divine offers help in doing that."—Gail Radley, author of more than 20 books and several Baha'i texts
"Brava to Dawn Reno Langley on You Are Divine—an elegant guide for nurturing the goddess spirit within. Brave, inspiring, and ever so wise."—Char Jones, literary reviewer
"You Are Divine comes at a pivotal point in today's society, as laws are being changed and restructured to take away a woman's power over her own body and women again are being subjugated in so many ways. In this book, Dr. Langley explains the history of the empowered female and the cultures that acknowledge a woman's rightful place at whatever stage she is in: Maiden, Mother, Crone or Warrior, and calls on all women to find the Divine Goddess that resides within them. It is an enlightening, encouraging, and illuminating book for all women of all ages."—Nancy Christie, award-winning author of The Gifts of Change and podcast host
"As I read, I felt women throughout the ages, both mythical and real, embrace me and whisper, 'It's true, cherished one. You really are divine.'"—Barbara Younger, author of 20 books and multi-gallery represented artist
"You'll find the 'divine woman' in yourself after reading Dawn Reno Langley's inspiring work. Having read You Are Divine, I now look at all women as truly Divine."—Marcia King Gamble, author of dozens of novels
"It is time for us to embrace and celebrate the femininity in us, regain our power, and redefine ourselves for the goddesses we are, in our own right. This book, to me, is a call to action, to reclaim that lost history and our true feminine powers without apology, but with pride."—Tikiri Herath, award winning author of the Rebel Diva series
