Yoni: Goddess Symbol of the Sacred Feminine


Yoni was a term, widely used in ancient times, that literally meant 'sacred place'.

"The sign of the yoni was meant to convey the shape of the external female genitalia, which the ancients clearly recognised as the seat of female sexual power. Tantrics viewed that power as the source of all creative action."

Barbara Gordon Walker, A Woman's Dictionary of Signs and Symbols

The yoni symbol appears frequently in the exquisite glass art goddess collection of  the internationally acclaimed glass artist Colin Heaney that features the famed  Goddess of Willendorf (also known as the Venus of Willendorf). The goddess nestles warmly in the cave-like yoni in the goddess shrines and in the goddess pendants from the collection.
