 Creating a Stronger Goddess (or is it) Priestess?! – The Magic of Enheduanna

The first known Priestess and human author are one and the same, Enheduanna. The daughter of Sargon the Great, she changed the religions of Akkad and Sumer with her words. By examining Enheduanna’s hymns we can understand how Enheduanna changed a demi-goddess, Inanna, into one of the supreme deities of Akkad and Sumer. I will also demonstrate that Enheduanna’s method can be utilized to raise our own magic to new heights. In the process we will learn the true strength that each of us possesses. It starts with your words.
