She was seen as the SACRED made imminent in the natural world, expressed in the diversity of all forms of life and death, in alignment with the cycles and seasons of the earth – she is Mother Nature. Women (the physical embodiment of the divine feminine) are able to perform acts of creation in the form of birth. This creation is mirrored in animals and crops through out mother earth (Gaia). The ancient ones recognized this and viewed women’s bodies as vehicles of life and women as sacred.

The most sacred of which was the Hieros Gamos ritual (which symbolizes the sacred sexual union of mother & father of creation and provides a way by which to truly realize ones spiritual potential.
