Beyond Words: The Language of the Feminine Spirit

Language of words is a left-brain, masculine approach to God and can limit our experience of the divine mystery, according to Lucinda Vardey. The spirit is calling us to now move to "the place of the feminine", the right-brain approach, where image replaces alphabet, our bodies predominate our minds, symbols replace words, intuition leads over rationality, ecstasy over dogma.
