Goddess in a Teapot
Writings and Music by Carolyn Lee Boyd
Welcome to Goddess in a Teapot! This site celebrates the many ways in which we experience the sacred and express our creativity in our everyday lives. “Goddess,” a term I use here to mean the sacred in women and our lives, is in the teapot because teapots are both everyday, useful objects, and also have many spiritual and creative meanings — they are transformational, bringing together earth (tea leaves), air (their whistles), fire (heat) and water; they nurture and nourish us; they are that which we gather around to form families and communities. These are all qualities I hope you will find here at Goddess in a Teapot.
In these pages and posts you will find some of the ways I have explored our sacredness and wisdom through writing and music. In the Library you will find links to recent publications in internet zines as well as some published and unpublished writings from the past 20 years. The Library also has some compilations of my writings in free e-books and an e-novel you are welcome to download. You can listen to and download some musical pieces I have composed and recorded as well. The Blog Posts contain more personal and immediate unpublished writings. You may listen to an interview with me by the Rev. Karen Tate on the podcast Voices of the Sacred Feminine about creating hospitable communities to heal or prevent abuse and trauma or find a list of related books and articles here. You can find out a bit more about me in Who Am I and if you’d like to be in touch, go to the Contact Me page.
I hope that these writings will help you on your own way. So, please sit down, have a cup of tea, and let’s chat!
