View all copies of this ISBN edition:

In The Luminous Heartbeat, Wendy Victor sets out to discover why ancient, positive feminine influences have been eclipsed by a strictly patriarchal spiritual world. She proposes that the transition from oral tales to written history was the catalyst. Her message is about new beginnings, empowerment, awareness, voice, and fertility. Ultimately, Victor reconstructs the ancient equilibrium between spiritual and terrestrial forces and reconfirms the original covenant between women and God.
