Glenys Livingstone received her Ph.D. in Social Ecology from the University of Western Sydney Australia in 2003, and is author of PaGaian Cosmology: Re-inventing Earth-based Goddess Religion (iUniverse 2005). Glenys has been passionately involved in the resurgence of female imagery for the Sacred for almost three decades, teaching Re-Storying Goddess and En-Trancing Goddess courses, and facilitating seasonal rituals.

This was the topic of her participative doctoral research, which may be accessed on-line at http://www.divinexpressions.com.au. Glenys' teachers and inspirations have been many and good. She gained her M.A. from the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley California in 1982, for which her topic was Motherhood Mythology — the beginnings of learning the story of the Great Mother as Deity.

Her book PaGaian Cosmology links this Goddess-focus and Pagan heritage with a contemporary scientific sense of the cosmos. It combines personal, academic and practical style, and is freely available to read on-line at http://pagaian.org where there is also a forum and the book may be purchased.

Glenys is a mother, grandmother, beloved partner, and lives in the Blue Mountains Australia. She facilitates Seasonal rituals with a small local community according to her Place on the planet, and likes the term "Artemistress" to describe her role.
