    The inspiration behind Traces of her Descent is my personal journey of my own descent layer by layer towards internal death to the underworld (which is our own world within) followed by rebirth. Many ancient stories are of the same experience. One of the more significant is the story of Inanna, the Sumerian Goddess, who hearing the call, made her own eventful journey and return.

    Inanna’s story is also known as the Babylonian Ishtar’s Descent, but whereas Ishtar’s tale is told with only 145 lines, the original story from which it was copied, Inanna’s Descent, is told with 415 lines. The difference is attributed to the patriarchy, as it steadily eroded the power and significance of the Goddess during the second millenium BC.

    Inanna’s Descent into the Underworld is both a fascinating story and a prime archetype of spiritual initiation.
