Until relatively recently, growing up in the Judeo-Christian tradition meant experiencing religion as male dominated. Men were the religious leaders and we prayed to a male God. Historical research tells us that this is not how our religions started. Goddess worship was prominent in the early days of Judaism, including the goddess Asherah, Yahweh’s wife, who was worshipped openly in the Jerusalem Temple. After King Josiah and Prophet Jeremiah, the worship of goddesses became heresy, and women were blamed for God’s wrath. In early Christianity, the authors show how, in the first century AD, Jesus tried to bring back the goddess-worshipping religion of the Israelites. The Church, however, rewrote history to erase the feminine aspect of the faith, ignoring Jesus’s real message and again marginalizing women. Please join us Thursday to learn the disastrous consequences of the removal of the feminine aspect and how we have been craving the return of the Sacred Feminine for millennia.
