by Judith Perry Carpenter

The Uninvited Goddess is a memoir about the author’s stories of awakening to greater oneness. It is set in the context of these troubled times, the transformative possibilities of quantum consciousness, and the archetype of our newest planet, Eris, whose mythology suggests the vision that everyone needs to be invited to the party, everyone needs a seat at the table.
