The Goddess Chronicles


The Goddess Chronicles was born out of a deep desire to create something collaborative with other women around the world. Since finding my tribe, I have felt the shift within me as an artist and as a woman towards embracing the divine feminine within. My spirit has awakened and I live now to be more receptive, authentic, and to honor my creativity.   The Goddess Chronicles is an intention to hold the highest vision of all  women through expressive and artistic creations. There is a change that is stirring in the souls of women around the world more than ever!  I would like to document a small piece of this evolution for younger generations of goddesses. My hope is that The Goddess Chronicles will help girls and women alike recognize the profound love within to expand their creativity and cultivate living an authentic and happy life!

Stampington states that for collaborative projects, it is the responsibility of the submitting artist (Sofia) to obtain permission from each participant prior to submission. I will ask for these as each participant receives the journal. In addition, each piece of the collaborative must be labeled with contact information of the artist who created it so please be sure to provide that in the initial email.

8. The original book will be donated to empower young girls at 
Girls Inc. in San Antonio, TX. My hope is that each time a young girl sits to view The Goddess Chronicles it will inspire them to reach for their dreams! Please join us.
