“Our inner wisdom is always available if we choose to listen, and increasing numbers of people are beginning to hear. Wisdom is Minerva’s insight, and it is part of the feminine side of our duality which is returning to our conscious.” ~ Mary Petiet, Minerva’s Owls
Welcome to the Wisdom Journal for Minerva’s Owls!
This is a free mini course that releases prompts over five days.
The Wisdom Journal may be used as a companion to the book, Minerva’s Owls, or as a source for mindful living, journal writing, and personal meditation.
There are five prompts covering the mystical, finding feathers, yoga, source, and the divine feminine.
The goddess Minerva embodies wisdom in the Roman Pantheon and owls, called the handmaids of Minerva, are symbolic of her link to wisdom. The elements we associate with civilization and the divine feminine fall under Minerva’s bailiwick: the arts, inspiration, legal justice, music, poetry, crafts, weaving, the power to heal, and magic. Minerva finds her own duality as another of her aspects is patroness of just warfare. She is a battle strategist.
About the book, Minerva’s Owls:
“Our deepest wisdom lies within, we have everything we need within.” ~ Mary Petiet, Minerva’s Owls
As you read Minerva’s Owls you will find my journey was largely to a place deep within, a place I found accessible through the quiet of yoga and meditation. That quiet space exists within each of us and you can find it the same way I did, or through your own quieting practices. Once you access the space which allows insight and spiritual growth, writing it down is crucial to understanding and sharing it.
In the book Minerva’s Owls I have called in three eternal archetypes as Minerva’s owls to lead us in the search for wisdom. They are the great mother, the solar deity, and the sacrificial god. These three represent the stages we have gone through as species to find wisdom.
I hope that through reading about the individual quest for inner wisdom described in Minerva’s Owls through yoga, history, art, philosophy, time and space, you can find your own inner shores following the journal prompts in the next pages and use them as a guide for your own journey.
