When women awaken The Goddess Within they awaken to their full potential by healing their sexuality
When women awaken to The Goddess Within, she intern awakens The God within him
The Goddess Movement isn’t about taking power away from men, it is about women walking into their own power through the integration of all her feminine aspects.. including; nurturing, mothering, creating, fertility, healing, protecting and wisdom.. in the awakening of her Divine Feminine she is like a catalyst that causes The Divine Masculine to awaken within him.. The God, The Good King, the Peaceful Warrior, The Lover, The Father, The Sage.. yet a man that is in his Divine Masculine can awaken The Goddess within her ..by his wisdom.
When he becomes wise to the ways of The Goddess he can also be the catalyst that creates her awakening..
The Goddess Movement or the understanding of sacred sexuality brings about peace between the sexes..by learning to love and accept our differences we can create equality through nurturing each other instead of breaking each other down.. we build each other up.. this will create a paradigm shift within all of our social structures that will bring about sexual healing.. as we protect and uphold each other through the wisdom of seeing sex and sexuality as sacred and natural instead of sinful.
About Me & My Book
I am a single mother; artist and writer. I think the Goddess has always been present in my life;from an early age I had the wisdom to see and understand that the Goddess has been missing in worldwide culture for thousands of years. She has been my passion; the expression of the divine feminine in every woman and in every part of creation my passion. To raise her from the ashes through every woman becoming free to express the fullness of themselves through the acceptance of their intricate, original sexuality.
The images of me in the book as the model, expressing 7 Goddesses are steeped in ancient symbolism. They are meant to speak to the soul.
by Gracie Ackerman
The author speaks intimately and directly from her personal experience as a warm, sensitive, intellectual, sensual woman. As a daughter, a wife, a mother and a friend, she takes us through a journey of appreciating ancient sacred mythologies in a way that no academic (or man) could ever make accessible. This is because this is her first-hand account of her life through a sacred lens.
Gracie Ackerman delicately interweaves the highly practical and sometimes brutally pragmatic real world experiences of abuse, betrayal and liberation, with the poetic and divine knowledge of ancient wisdom. She weaves the ancient wisdom and her practical wisdom with such ease that it is impossible at times to separate the two. Through her storytelling, evocative poetry and sublime photographs, the ancient and modern are one.
The combination of the deeply personal and the most sacred roots of mythology wash away the plastic, commercialised, over-sensationalised, under-felt world of pornography and commercialisms and puts us directly back in touch with what it means to be a woman.
Not since I read the “The Female Eunuch” and “The Whole Woman” by Germain Greer, “The Secret Garden” by Frances Hodgson Burnett, “The Second Sex” by Simone de Beauvoir or “Revolution from Within” by Gloria Steinem have I been so deeply touched by such an authentic resonance and inspiration as Gracie Ackerman’s journey into the true liberation of female sexuality.
In a time of increasing polarities, with both the Christian right and the Islam fundamentalists taking control of media, this book could not have been better timed because it rises above the noise of religious politics and dogma to an open space where both men and women can rediscover their deepest sacred power. A space where men can learn to love what is missing most in their lives. Gracie creates a trusted space where young girls growing into womanhood can avoid the lies that will prevent them from knowing their sacred sexuality and the divine goddess within.
The benefits are three fold: 1. To women who have been repressed but want to be free. 2. To men who want to relate to women at a deeper more authentic level. 3. To young girls who are coming of age in a world of social media suffocating with false gods of pornography and commercialisation of sex.”"

The controversy surrounding the book; is that I am modeling topless in the book.. this has proven to be a great struggle for me in my local community. I write about my struggles on my blog. The controversy with my nudity is indeed proof as to why the book is needed to awaken and mature how our society views women’s sexuality and nudity as pornography.. compared to seeing sex .. mainly women’s sex and sexuality as natural and healthy.. women cannot come into their power and fullness as long as society is shaming women into parameters of sexual acceptance due to prejudices.. this will never bring about true equality and sexual health for either sex.. A huge function of The Goddess Movement is to promote and to be about authenticity..by being authentic both sexes..and all human beings step into the full light of their power.
