The International Women’s Day was celebrated all over the world in the last Friday the 8th of March, so I decided to pay tribute to women figures in the pantheon of many of world’s religions. In this way, this week’s program took form and was named Female Deities.

In some cultures Goddesses are associated with Earth, motherhood, love, and the household, while in other cultures, Goddesses also rule over war, death, and destruction as well as healing.

Sometimes, the best way to learn about something is to listen to music about it, so here is this week’s playlist as well as the audio for you to listen and/or to download:
