Linda C. (Seagull) reviewed The Yoni: Sacred Symbol of Female Creative Power on
The term YONI heralds from a culture and religion in which women have long been regarded and honored as the embodiment of divine energy and where the female genitals are seen as a sacred symbol of the Great Goddess. Ever since our prehistoric ancestors began to practice religion and art, humanity has envisioned and symbolically expressed the cosmic forces of creation, life, and death in representations of human genitalia. Fertility cults centered on phallic worship are well documented, but older and even more pervasive are the cults of the Goddess and her vulva.
