The Divine Feminine​

Come O Holy Sophia! Fill us with your presence!
Our eyes are open -- 
Our ears are open to hear and to receive you, Come!
O Come we want to know your mystery and your wisdom.

Sophia is the Greek name for the feminine figure of divine Wisdom in ancient Judaism. Many early Christians viewed the Christ as both the Word (Logos) and Wisdom (Sophia) of God. 

Including both Christ and Sophia in the name Christ-Sophia restores the Divine Feminine in Christianity. The Sophia that has always been acknowledged by esoteric Christianity is the key to unlock the Christian wisdom that is needed for our time. 

Recognizing the Sacred Feminine leads to a renewed vision of the sacredness of the natural world and the value of mystical experience, surrounding the central concept of “sacred marriage," and the role of pilgrimage to sacred sites as a spiritual practice.

We believe that the Feminine in dynamic relation with the Masculine is necessary for the transformation of human consciousness that is so desperately needed in our world. This is the great work for those who are walking on the path of gnosis.

What does it mean when someone praises the divine feminine? Or when someone says the divine feminine is the way to healing and enlightenment? Or that the divine feminine is reawakening our world at this time, heralding a return to higher frequencies of light and thought? Is this a Christian concept? Buddhist? Is it tied to religion? Or is it a spiritual concept? What is its history and where are its roots?

The answer is simple. The divine feminine is the goddess in all traditions, and has been since the beginning of time. These traditions are a mystical, magical, powerful, part of primal Mother Earth. They symbolize balance and healing, renewal and restoration.

Sophia is a very ancient form of the Goddess of Wisdom. She is known in many traditions by different names but she carries the mantle of intuitive intelligence. Mary Magdalene is said to have been an incarnation of Sophia.

The Old Testament’s King Solomon had a deep and profound relationship with Sophia. She was revered as the wise bride of Solomon by the Jewish people. 

The symbol of Sophia is the dove, depicted as the bird descending from the heavens, known in Christianity as the Holy Spirit.

The exotic and mysterious Black Madonnas have their roots in the pre-Christian goddess traditions. These energetic places often have a sacred water source and a Celtic foundation. The Black Madonna is another form of the feminine principle.

So what is the feminine principle?

Simply put, her principles are ones of nurturing, of love, understanding, compassion, insight, intuition, creativity, forgiveness, healing, and wisdom.

Whatever your beliefs and choice of traditions are, whether She appears to you as Green Tara, Ishtar or Mari, Gaia or Quan Yin, as the great Mother Mary or Magdalene, or as one of the pantheon of goddesses from ancient Egypt or Greece or Rome, to Africa or the Middle East, to the cults of the Black Madonna, or whether she is spun from one of the archetypes of the indigenous tribes, such as Spider Woman, the divine feminine is still the primordial She who creates from a central source.
