Honoring the Goddess in Every Woman

Women empowerment down to its core.


Women empowerment is not a relatively new concept. Although civil rights movement put women equality on focus in late nineteenth century, in the Mediterranean, as early as 2100 B.C.E., women explored their gifts and the world around them to become the goddesses they are destined to be.

Barbara Ruth Tieken’s historical fiction, “Bull Vaulter: Alena of the Isle of Green,” centers on one woman and her journey to fulfill her purpose. Set in the Aegean region, the story shows Alena, a bull vaulter from Keft, as she makes numerous journeys without and within, always with the intention to fulfill her calling, her mission, her purpose. Despite the challenges she encounters, she finds help from an old healer, Aesclevius, and from the infinite number of ways the Goddess manifests around her to sustain her with wisdom, strength, and determination.

What Alena discovers is the same precious truth lost on so many women in the modern times—every woman is a goddess in her own right, blessed with gifts that she can use at her disposal and tasked to do a purpose only she can fulfill.

Barbara Ruth Tieken has created a timeless masterpiece that reminds women to embrace the goddess within them and, in effect, honor the giver of all things since time immemorial, the Divine Mother.

About the Author
Barbara Tieken, author of “Bull Vaulter, Alena of the Isle of Green,” has now returned to her childhood home in Texas where she writes a weekly column for Historic Old Town Shiner in The Shiner Gazette.  Barbara has been described as “a friend of all who fly, be it bird or spirit.” An avid environmentalist, 2010 and 2015 performance poet at Trails and Vistas’ Art Hike in the Sierra Nevada, published poet and essayist, teacher, former Mayor and City Councilwoman of New Braunfels, Texas, Barbara wrote this historical fiction novel while she and her late husband lived in Newport, Oregon, high on a hill overlooking the beautiful Pacific.

Barbara continues to be inspired by the writings of the late UCLA Archaeologist/Mythologist Dr. Marija Gimbutas, and the excavations of Akrotiri on Santorini by the late Dr. Spyridon Marinatos and Dr. Christos Doumas as chronicled by Dr. Charles Pellegrino’s Unearthing Atlantis, An Archaeological Odyssey.  Barbara’s long desire has been to bring this highly-evolved, peaceful, Goddess-worshiping, life-affirming, navigational culture that dominated the Aegean and Mediterranean for thousands of years on Keft (Crete) and Kalliste (Santorini) to a wider reading audience.
