What does the name “Bensozia’s Garden” mean?

Bensozia was one of the medieval appellations for the Goddess who led the “good women” as they journeyed through the night.

The name contains th0621160044be latin root “socius” as in “social”, “society” etc, and is sometimes translated as “Good Neighbor”.         Thus she is the kindred divine.        Just as we shape our world, so she shapes hers.

As our gadsc06246rdens grow in communion with hers, she infuses us with deep wisdom.  And that wisdom can guide us as we build community and shape the world around us.
