For psychotherapist, artist, and author Lianne Escher, women coping with significant—and often troublesome—life transitions need to consider embracing their inner goddesses. Seven of them, to be exact.
The North Guilford resident recently authored and illustrated her first book, A Mythic Sisterhood: The Goddess Way to Courage, Clarity and Grace.
Lianne, who earned her MSW from Smith College School for Social Work, has conducted workshops at retreat centers around New England on women and addiction, female spirituality, and the psychology of Carl Jung. Now, with a little help from the Greek goddesses Persephone, Demeter, Aphrodite, Hera, Athena, Artemis, and Hestia, Lianne’s book shares how women can put transitions into perspective and embrace energies they encounter, from plunging into a creative period to taking on a new responsibility, commitment, or purpose to finding introspection, sensuality, or the power take action.
