About the Book

In all religions, the goddess or the feminine aspect of God has been hidden under doctrine and dogma. The root of equality is left trampled in the ruins of the ancient temples that scatter the globe; Gracie created this book to bring her back to her original glory. This book is intended to help women love their flesh, their original beauty, to do away with the plastic and the pornographic. Real women are organic, their bodies unique; their bodies are their own. Gracie’s dreams led her down this path; because of her vivid spiritual and mystical dreams, she began to study Jungian dream analogy; Jung led her to Albert Einstein. These two brilliant minds could connect the mysteries for her. She understands it is the mysteries that lead us. It is Gracie’s intention to bring into awareness, sacred sexuality through the God and Goddess archetypical wisdom of healthy, mature sexuality for the sake of love, lust, and spirituality.

About the Author

Gracie grew up in a fundamentalist Christian household; she was taught that women didn’t really like sex and that men liked it way too much. As a girl maturing into a woman, this was very confusing. She thought about boys all the time; she daydreamed about a man holding her in his arms and what the actual act of lovemaking would be like. But she was taught these thoughts were sinful and that touching her own body was gross and dirty. It seemed to her that everything natural was a sin. Gracie found that the Christian Bible was full of contradictions. The Song of Solomon was supposed to be about the Church being the Bride of Christ. She read it many times because it was so erotic; to her, it was about a man and a woman longing for each other above others, finding each other after they had a fight, and then having great makeup sex! But it seemed to her, somehow, when the books of the Bible were put together, this became a disinfected, metaphorical look at the Church being married to God.
