Renee Starr is a mythologist, sacred storyteller, spiritual coach, and artist. She was the proprietress of a modern day apothecary store called ALKIMI in Los Angeles, California.
As a seeker of ancient wisdom for the modern woman, she offers her book, “You Are Woman, You Are Divine” as a guide for our journey back to The Goddess.
Renee has her own line of herbal, ritual and Goddess products. Her branded movement, Back to The Goddess, offers classes, workshops, and Goddess Circles, as well as a variety of women’s retreats for women everywhere to awaken to their sacredness, their inner goddess and to rekindle a relationship with The Divine Feminine.
Here’s what Renee and I talk about:
- “When I finished writing You Are Woman, You Are Divine, I realized something that I had not known until then. I, like all the other mythological women, faeries and enchanted princesses I had read about, had survived. I had made it through to the other side and was now fearlessly, courageously and gorgeously whole.“

Renee’s Upcoming Retreat
Today, many women are feeling the call of something that they cannot name, cannot identify and cannot seem to find in the modern world. This call carries with it a feeling of longing and a hint of something wild, primitive, deep, untamed and very, very female. This is the call of the moon upon your womb, your blood and your soul, calling you home to yourself, to your feminine magic and to a practice of looking up at the moon in the night sky with an understanding that you are a part of her cycles, that you are lunar.
