A Woman’s Descent to the Sacred

Burning through ancient patterns in myth and culture that depict what a woman must be and what she can never be, the film tells a story through art and music of a woman’s spiritual journey into the essence of the feminine. I made this film from art and music that came as Pat Hopkins and I were traveling and speaking about “The Feminine Face of God.” The film itself grew out of a wish to inspire and support women to take time for themselves, to turn away from the pull of filling other people’s needs, and to discover the joy and resources of their true selves.
