    schema:reviewBody ""Why do women find it hard to get men to emotionally connect with them? Why do men so often feel thwarted in their relationships with women? For thousands of years men have been cut off from the feminine divine - is this affecting their relationships with women?" "Tim Ward set out on a three-year journey to reconnect with the lost goddesses of his European ancestors - a personal Da Vinci Code quest. Ward discovered not only what men lost when they buried their goddesses, but also came face to face with his own demons, including a hidden rage against women. Ward explored the ruined temples and shrines of the sacred feminine, and encountered the goddess in all her forms: white marble statues of naked Aphrodite on Cyprus, rotund stone giantesses in Malta, and the multi-breasted Artemis of Ephesus. It changed him forever." "With brutal honesty Ward describes his own fear of commitment, his womanizing, and the draw of pornography. He writes about what sabotaged his own relationships, including the traumas that erupt with the woman he loves while writing his book, leading to a spiritual revelation that blindsides him."--Jacket." ;
