At the top of the hour, join us as Mary Mackey discusses Recreating the Rituals of the Goddess....inspired by the research and writings of Marija Gimbutas, Mackey wrote three novels that make the Goddess-worshiping cultures of Old Europe come to life. In the absence of written records, Mackey imagined the songs, prayers and rituals of Goddess worship - as all of us must trust ourselves to do as we rebirth the Great She in our time. Mary made these recreations as accurate as possible using ritual objects found at sacred sites and drawing on the best scholarship and theories available.
In part two of the show, elder priestess, Foundress of the Goddess Temple in Oregon, VajraMa discusses the Fourth Wave of Feminism - Embodied Spirituality giving rise to "More than a Grassroots Revolution: A Womb-Roots Evolution" Vajra says the fourth wave of feminism is a call for a fusion of political and spiritual values, but believes this is just too safe and tries not to rock the boat. Vajra Ma maintains that the spiritual story or religious myth of a culture determines its politics, law, social fabric and instutitions and that spirituality trumps politics and most of all: that humanity's original spirituality is based in the female body. Vajra Ma believes the Fourth Wave of Feminism is fully embodied spirituality giving rise to a newly restored societal fabric and that is our only hope.
