|Reclaiming The Divine Feminine
with Rev. Maggy Whitehouse
A six-part online course starting on 15th October
Nearly all ancient faiths honour the Divine Feminine as the creatrix of the universe. How we came to such a patriarchal belief as an over-arching old man in the sky is the story of how we lost our link to the great cycles of life and created a God in our own image.
The Bible begins: "In the beginning the Elohim created the Heavens and the Earth.” The Elohim is the Divine Feminine, the Great Mother, and she is powerfully present throughout the three religions of the Book as well as in all the other traditions — as part of the oral Perennial Wisdom Tradition.
In this extraordinary year, we are seeing clearly how our world has slid into both the toxic masculine and destructive feminine. Covid-19 can easily be viewed as the outcome of a corrupted, disruptive Yin-Yang energy balance at the spiritual level, crying out for a return to the Ways of Wisdom.
This six-part online course will weave the story of Sophia, the feminine wisdom tradition from the Elohim to Mary Magdalene via the Turtle Woman, Ishtar, Isis, Sekhmet and many others, using the filters of Judaic mysticism, history and social customs to see what we can reclaim for a new Earth where respect is the mark of each human being. Each of these aspects of the feminine is an archetype within us and can show us our strengths – and our shadow.
Men are most welcome on this course – it is about the feminine not the female!
