The Divine Feminine Fire – Creativity and Your Yearning to Express Your Self – by Teri Degler



This book is about the divine feminine energy, found in everyone, and how it gives creative expression to the innermost depth of our being. It is a book about our desire for creative self-expression, which is connected at the most fundamental level to our desire to live our lives to their fullest potential. Throughout its pages, reference is made to various spiritual traditions and women mystics that have viewed the divine feminine as a great creative force in the universe. It brings these long-forgotten—or more often ignored—gems to light and explains this ancient wisdom so everyone can use it.

An award winning writer, Teri is the author/co-author of ten non-fiction books, including The Fiery Muse: Creativity and the Spiritual Quest (Random House of Canada) and one for young adults, The Canadian Junior Green Guide (McClelland & Stewart). Written in conjunction with the highly respected environmental watchdog, Pollution Probe, it became a Canadian best-seller.

After completing two books on the environment, Teri began to focus much of her writing on topics related to creativity and contemporary spirituality, subjects of deep personal interest to her. Teri first began studying yoga in her twenties in Paris with a teacher who had lived in Mahatma Gandhi’s ashram for more than twenty years. Several years later she traveled to India to meet Gopi Krishna – considered by many to be the world’s leading authority on kundalini. Since then she has been a student of the philosophy behind yoga and has been involved in researching the link between creativity, inspiration, and mystical experience. Both her latest book, The Divine Feminine Fire: Creativity and Your Yearning to Express Your Self (Dreamriver Press), and The Fiery Muse deal with this topic; she has also written a number of articles and spoken widely on the subject.

An experienced public speaker, Teri has made many national television and radio appearances. Her freelance writing has appeared in such widely divergent publications in the United States as Family Circle Magazine and New Age Journal. Her books have been published in the United States, Canada, and Germany and have been translated into both German and French.

Her workshops on creative writing and the link between creativity and spirituality have met with great success, and she now divides her time between leading workshops and writing.

An avid traveler, Teri has lived in Austria, Germany, France and on a sailboat in the Bahamas. Teri is an enthusiastic swimmer and competes with a masters synchronized swimming team. She is an active member of PEN Canada, the Writers’ Union of Canada, and the Institute for Consciousness Research, and she was one of the founders of the Kundalini Research Network in the United States.

Originally from Idaho, she has an MA from the University of New Mexico. She now makes her home in Toronto with her husband and teenage daughter.
