"I will miss Monica's big spirit, her
dynamism, her fierce love of the Goddess, and her unceasing advocacy
for women and the poor. Although she remained an anarchist and
incorrigible rebel to the very end, her illness and the care-giving
she received as a result of it softened her and opened her heart. She
was bathed in love that was sent to her in waves from around the
Monaghan - Goddess movement Pioneer, poet, author and teacher:
"The loss of Monica resonates across the ocean
to those of us who knew her only through her pioneering work. She was
among the first Goddess authors I encountered and her work influenced
me indelibly. The greatest tribute that we can give her is to sustain
and continue the work that was her life."
Scholar, Feminist Herstorian, Photographer, Presenter.
"Monica's art envisioned the unity of Goddess
in a thousand different forms, from the megalithic Grandmothers to the
Black Madonnas to the deep animist ground of Earth's holy places. Her
great dream was to see women spiritually decolonized and set free. Now
she flies free in the realm of the ancestors, and I know she still
holds this intention, in company with the Great Female Beings she
painted and spoke and wrote about."
