Renée Gorin as Becate. - LISA LEVART

In Goddess on Earth: Portraits of the Divine Feminine, Nyack resident Lisa Levart inspires everyday women to realize their inner goddess. Among the pages of the hardcover linen-bound book, 75 women age 8 to 99 connect their divine power to the myths of ancient goddesses in portraits. Each touches on the essence of raw and natural feminine beauty. Alongside the photos, each woman presents their identification to the sacred goddess form that manifests within them.

Madhur Jaffrey as Durga - LISA LEVART

A handful of Hudson Valley locals are featured, including Serpentessa, a snake priestess and dancer, posing with two of her pythons as Hygeia, the Greek goddess of health. Woodstock-based author and herbalist Susun Weed embodies Baba Yaga, the Slavic goddess of age and fearsome wisdom. "To be Baba Yaga you must not be afraid of great age," Weed writes. "I am old and wise."
