In honor of She of Ten Thousand Names and her ritual in Egypt, Greece and rome - and right here on the California coast, I will share with you a presentation I gave to the American Academy of Religion's Western Region on the herstory of this sacred ritual and how Isis is inspiring a living tradition in contemporary times.

We know that God can work through instruments, through people and through miracles, to bring people to health. Whether a person is sick physically, emotionally or spirituall; we know quited plainly and clearly that God is not only concern about our spiritual needs but God is also concern about our natural, physical and emotional needs as well. I want to talk about the emotional need of being heal from fear, because this is what I saw in Nick Gordon. I saw a man that needs to come clean concerning Withney Houston Brown and Bobbie Kristine Brown. Healing mentally come only from God and not a plant.
ENVISION THIS: Humankind shifting toward the ideals of the Sacred Feminine and eco- feminist spirituality will save the world.
In Goddess Calling, Karen Tate shares with her readers, “Inspirational Messages and Meditations of Sacred Feminine Liberation Thealogy.” (No, she has not misspelled “Theology” which suggests that God is male!) Thealogy is a reclamation of humanity’s ancient allegiance to the Feminine Divine.
Virtually all stories of the Goddess come to us obscured and disempowered by thousands of years of patriarchal interpreters. Even many current feminist interpretations are colored by revolt against the patriarchy and desire for “equal” rights to the spoils of domination. How can men and women embrace one another as holy?
How can each of us find the shrouded Feminine Divine, separating truth from myth, and see what a Goddess with equal status with God has to offer humankind as we move toward a holistic future that is more viable, resilient, equitable, and Earth-friendly?
Karen Tate is with us this evening to help us explore this question in its many aspects and implications. For over two decades, Karen's work has been fueled by her intense interest and passion for travel, comparative religions, ancient cultures, and Goddess Spirituality. As editor of Voices of the Sacred Feminine, she gives human voice to the “sacred roar” of the Goddess calling out to today’s humanity.
Tonight Jason Miller will share the secrets of erotic magic from his book, Sex, Sorcery and Spirit. The sexual act is possibly the most potent - and pleasureable gateway to the primordial. Fom the Tantric mysteries of Hinduism and Buddhism and the inner alchemy of Taoism, to the sacrament of the bridal chamber in Christianity - and of course, the traditions of Western Magic and Witchcraft - sex pervades the highest and most secret teachings all over the world. In our conversation with Jason, we'll delve into what exactly erotic alchemy actually is, how Aleister Crowley's teachings differ from his, why this type of erotica always seems to be focused on the male and how the GLBT folks can adapt this book for their use. We'll talk about dedicated vs casual partners for this practice, if sex magic is dangerous and given the popularity of the book, 50 Shades of Grey, is there a place for BDSM in sex magic? And no doubt, you'll want to know if you can use sex magic to get a job or find a lover. and if we can use orgasm to achieve high levels of spiritual attainment..Yes, I'll ask! :)
