Goddess worship is a general description for the veneration of a female Deity or female deities. It is also referred to as goddess spirituality. Worship may imply to its devotees too much humility for a faith that does not distance the Divine into a remote, hierarchical separation. The term veneration may be preferred, implying respect and intimacy without undue deference. Spirituality is often preferred to religion because organised religion has not typically nurtured goddess worship, with the major exception of Hinduism.
