In How I Discovered My Mother Was A Goddess, Beverly Charles, tells the poignant story of aging and dementia from the point of view of both the parent and child. At some times troubling and other times darkly comic, it provides a vision of a spiritual journey, one that is healing, authentic, and satisfying. In addition to offering us the story of a mother and daughter as they struggle with old age and death, Beverly moves more deeply into the psyche to understand the goddesses at work in herself and her mother during the various phases of life. We journey through the author’s and her mother’s relationship to each other and to eight goddesses - Artemis, Hestia, Aphrodite, Athena, Demeter, Persephone, Hera, and Mary. By taking us on this odyssey with her, she not only deepens our understanding of the feminine and the goddesses that personify it, but reveals how these goddesses manifest in everyday life. This story enhances our understanding of the divine feminine. This book is for all those who have loved ones experiencing any form of dementia – as our intellectual connection diminishes, may we become more connected in our hearts. This book is also for women and the men who love them – may we never be ashamed of the journey that brings us home to the goddess within.
