Nine Muses | February 2016

February 2016 

Viva la Nine Muses!  We’re excited to announce our new lifestyle brand: Media & Merchandise.

When we started this journey, we established ourself as Goddess in Progress.  To us that turn of words said it all: we explore the various ways the status of women has fluctuated throughout history.. (we’re talking about the goddess in progress, throughout history).  Through this exploration we wanted to awaken our own inner goddesses, and embrace the power that we know we have to be responsible for our world.  This is our way of taking hold of our future, and making a positive impact on today.  We want to support other women in awakening to their divine feminine, and explore that new space together.  And we want to get to know the men who are accessing their inner feminine force to find more holistic models for living.  Over the past year, we’ve spent a lot of time exploring advanced ancient civilization and the role women played. Heidi Gottner-Abendroth’s The Dancing Goddess: Principles of Matriarchal Art is a fascinating read that provides a framework for understanding the dramatic arts in Pre-God societies.  We learned that communities had nine muses, like priestesses, who were responsible for invoking the divine feminine, fertile, energy on earth.  Muses represented various parts of society: agriculture, the dramatic arts, poetry, law, trade, architecture, pottery and tool-making, alchemy, the healing arts, and eroticism. Muses literally gave their lives over to channeling the feminine so that they could bestow new lessons in innovation unto their communities.  Power equalled one’s responsibility for their craft. Life was Art and Art was life.

"When I realized the beauty of being a woman and how blessed I really was, after being traumatized for so many years and now, to me, that's the most beautiful thing in the world, and it's really simple .. It's not going to take us nine years of college to get there. We just have to teach each other how to re-love each other and love ourselves and love where we came from. It's just as simple as that."
