Tim Ward studied philosophy at the University of British Columbia and his several titles include What the Buddha Never Taught. He has lived throughout the Far East but is now based in Maryland, where he runs his own communications Training business.
"'Ward's book is a kind of archaeology of the soul. He digs through the layers of his own male psyche and cultural conditioning, and does not flinch at what he finds buried underneath. He brings ancient rituals to life as he re-imagines what it must have been like to be a man living in the time of the goddess. His vivid account cuts to the heart of man's relationship with the feminine divine - and, even more important, to men's relationships with flesh-and-blood women. Wade Davis, author of One River and The Serpent and the Rainbow 'Few male writers except theologians have dared to interpret the goddess movement but Tim Ward in his frank, intrepid way, has given us a thoughtful, personal account of one man's look at the goddess and why many men have been so angry at women. Susan Swan, author of What Cassanova Told Me 'Powerful...Tim Ward's personal encounters with the statues, frescos, temples and sacred sites of ancient goddesses remind us that these artifacts are not sterile stones but the touchstones to a still living world of human experience.' Richard Rudgley, Lost Civilizations of the Stone Age"
