I Can’t Wait to Read This Book on Sheela na gig!

Sheela na gig, The Dark Goddess of Sacred Power by Starr Goode is now available!  I’m sure this is going to be great. Starr writes, “This is a life work for me. Over a quarter of a century in the making with over 150 illustrations, the book has three parts: History, Journeys, Image. Nothing represents the necessity of re-imagining the female in Western culture more than the startling stone carving of the Sheela na gig displaying her vulva.”

It is available at and at Amazon
