Fellowship of the Inner Light
The Divine Feminine, better known as The Goddess is the feminine aspect of the Creator, who in our western society has been known as a masculine figure, however, Creator has the two aspects: the Masculine (the Father) and the Feminine (the Mother). The Bible told the story of Creation from the point of view, or perspective, of the Father. The Mother only appeared when the Father wished to present humans with his Son on Earth. However, without the Mother there would be no Creation. Through the centuries, the Mother has had as much power as the Father in the consciousness of most human societies, but in the West the Father always had prominence as The Creator, coming out as the central power in the Universe that He created. Clarice will briefly talk about how the Mother figure had that central position in matriarchal societies where honoring the Mother was the central religious practice, and how it was that in patriarchal societies – notably after the birth and death of Jesus, the Son – and correlating with the ascension of patriarchy in the organization of societies, the Father became the Only and Central figure of Creation. We will also look into the many Goddesses who were worshiped in ancient societies and their reappearance in our societies in the last two centuries, such as Isis, QuanYin , Ma’at, Lakshmi, Yemanja, and so forth. She will end with a message directly from the Mother to the audience.
