The Goddess            Top

 SOPHIA: Goddess of Wisdom, Bride of God by Caitlin Matthews  This book takes the reader on a journey from pre-Christian spirituality to the present day, seeking out the presence of the Goddess--the divine feminine power of wisdom.

 The Hebrew Goddess by Raphael Patai "The Hebrew Goddess" demonstrates that the Jewish religion, far from being pure monotheism, contained from earliest times strong polytheistic elements, chief of which was the cult of the mother goddess. Lucidly written and richly illustrated, this third edition contains new chapters of the Shekhina. Read review.

  Sophia's Web   Understanding the Unity, and Diversity of Religion, Science, and Ourselves  by Burl B. Hall  One of several books by one of our own Ministers ordained by the Esoteric Theological Seminary. The universe is akin to a multi-dimensional cube. Each point in this cube mirrors every other point. This is a book where science, Christianity, Judaism, Atheism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Native Spirituality become various faces of one Divinity. "Sophia (Wisdom) is multi-faced," the Bible's Book of Wisdom (Hagia Sophia) says. There is unity in diversity and diversity in unity.

 The Goddess in the Gospels: Reclaiming the Sacred Feminine by Margaret Starbird The author shares the story behind the story of 'The Woman with the Alabaster Jar'. In many ways, the personal spiritual journey Starbird experienced and shares with the reader in GODDESS is a more compelling tale than the one she eventually wrote about the Magdalene. GODDESS has much in common with 'The Dance of the Dissident Daughter' by Sue Monk Kidd. (Kidd acknowledges Starbird's influence in her book). GODDESS also nicely complements HOLY BLOOD HOLY GRAIL.
  The Feminine Face of Christianity  by Margaret Starbird.  Starbird notes the early pattern of gender equality in the early Christian community, noting the "sister-wives" who accompanied male disciples on their missionary journeys, forging a new understanding of the "sacred marriage" at the heart of the Christian Gospels. She points out that fundamental Christian values such as compassion, reconciliation, and the healing of crippled bodies and broken hearts are all strongly feminine in nature.

Living Gnosis: A Practical Guide to Gnostic Christianity by Tau Malachi Gnostic revival is growing in the United States and Europe as people are discovering the mystical roots of their own Western Tradition. This easy-to-read, deeply spiritual introduction to Gnostic Christianity helps beginners down the Gnostic path to esoteric insights and wisdom.

The Dance of the Dissident Daughter: A Woman's Journey from Christian Tradition to the Sacred Feminine by Sue Monk Kidd   What happens when the wife of a Southern Baptist minister, a loyal adherent to his religious tradition, suddenly discovers an alternative religious tradition that speaks more strongly to her spiritual longings? Kidd (When the Heart Waits, HarperSanFrancisco, 1991) recounts her own journey of anger, fear, and joy from her traditional Baptist upbringing to her new discovery of the power of nontraditional feminine religious experiences. Along her journey, Kidd encounters some of the most powerful feminist religious voices of her times, from Phyllis Trible to Carol Christ, and records these voices as guideposts on her journey. A graceful account of awakening and transformation.

 The Myth of the Goddess: Evolution of an Image by Anne Baring and Jules Cashford  In this scholarly study the authors draw upon poetry and mythology, art and literature, archaeology and psychology to show how the myth of the goddess has been lost from our formal Judaeo-Christian images of the divine. The authors explain what happened to the goddess, when and how she was excluded from Western culture, and the implications of this loss.

 Sarah the Priestess: The First Matriarch of Genesis by Savina J. Teubal. Amber Satterwhite, also known as Oiled Lamp, one of our Mystery School Initiates comments: Probably the most illuminating book ever published on the story of Sarah, Abraham, and the genesis of the Jewish nation. Read it, or continue to misread Genesis.

  Ancient Sisterhood: The Lost Traditions of Hagar and Sarah by Savina J. Teubal  In this scholarly feminist study of the Genesis stories of Sarah and Hagar, Teubal explores the matriarchal tradition in the Bible, which may have been covered over by succeeding patriarchal traditions. Sarah and Hagar are given an identity other than just being sleeping partners of Abraham. She also explores what the female led religious traditions were.

 Return of the Great Goddess by Burleigh Muten  From Sappho to Judy Chicago, from the late Egyptian era to Audrey Flack, this anthology of fine art reproductions and literary excerpts proclaims the strength and majesty of the feminine experience. The images and messages, based on the award-winning Return of the Goddess Engagement Calendars, remind women of their spiritual heritage, their innate wisdom, the integrity of the female body and its rites of passage, and the growing global community of women who celebrate the return of the feminine deity. 80 illustrations, 58 in color.

 Dreams of Isis: a Woman’s Spiritual Sojourn by Normandi Ellis  Drawing on her travels in modern-day Egypt and her lifelong study of Egyptian mythology and art, author Normandi Ellis takes us on a moving, autobiographical journey through the sacred sites and rituals of Egypt's past, revealing their spiritually transforming power for contemporary women.

 The Once and Future Goddess: A Sweeping Visual Chronicle of the Sacred Female and Her Reemergence in the Cult by Elinor W. Gadon  In this beautifully illustrated and far-reaching history. Elinor Gadon vividly weaves words and images to demonstrate the powerful connections between ancient and contemporary art, between the Goddess of the Ice Age and the Goddess of today.

 The White Goddess : A Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth  by Robert Graves Perhaps the finest of Robert Graves's works on the psychological and mythological sources of poetry. In this tapestry of poetic and religious scholarship, Graves explores the stories behind the earliest of European deities—the White Goddess of Birth, Love, and Death—who was worshipped under countless titles. He also uncovers the obscure and mysterious power of "pure poetry" and its peculiar and mythic language.

 The Biblical Ciphers Unsealed: A Revival of the Hebrew Goddess  by Dale N. Robertson   It has long been believed that the Bible contains secrets that were encoded into it by its authors. According to the Kabbalists, this was to prevent the uninitiated from unleashing its magical powers. The author explains why the ciphers were "veiled," and from whom. Unlike anything that has so far been derived from the biblical scriptures, the ciphers read in whole sentences whose meanings are sequential from one sentence to the next. Each cipher is a "book of wisdom," in the original sense of the Hebrew Hokmah ("wisdom" or "shrewdness"), in that they are concerned with practical matters, such as the conduct of business and politics. Each is a "book of power," more in a Machiavellian than a Kabbalistic sense, as they often read like instruction manuals in the ancient art of espionage. They represent a window, closed for more than two millennia, which now is open.

 The Gospel of Mary Magdalene (written in 150 A.D.) translated and with commentary by Jean Yves-Leloup.  If you are intrigued with Hinduism / Vedanta and Tibetan Buddhism being similar to earliest Christianity, you simply must read this book.  I like it so much it stays on my night stand.

The Sacred Embrace of Jesus and Mary : The Sexual Mystery at the Heart of the Christian Tradition by Jean-Yves Leloup Practiced and thorough with his extrapolation of the sacred texts, Leloup (founder of the Institute of Other Civilization Studies and the International College of Therapists and author of The Gospel of Mary Magdalene, The Gospel of Philip and The Gospel of Thomas) addresses the current debate about the relationship between Jesus and Mary Magdalene. This thoughtful and detailed discussion has a more academic tone than some of his other books and may seem daunting, but fans of Leloup and true seekers of the meaning of love, the holiness of sexuality and the deeper aspects of the relationship between Jesus and Mary won't be disappointed.

Living Gnosis: A Practical Guide to Gnostic Christianity by Tau Malachi  Gnostic revival is growing in the United States and Europe as people are discovering the mystical roots of their own Western Tradition.

Invoking Mary Magdalene: Accessing the Wisdom of the Divine Feminine   book and CD
by Siobhan Houston   In Invoking Mary Magdalene, Siobhán Houston shares the compelling story of Jesus’ preeminent female disciple to help us rediscover the long-eclipsed feminine heart of Christianity.
Mary Magdalene, Bride in Exile by Margaret Starbird   Starbird, a writer experienced in biblical history, is among the latest to focus on the woman called "the apostle to the apostles." Starbird, who primarily looks at the way Mary's story merges into myth, paints with a bit of New Age patina, yet her book is more focused and organized. Starbird thinks that the Magdalene and Mary of Bethany were one; other writers think Mary was poor; Starbird styles her as rich. Inner Traditions Bear & Co

 Jesus Christ, Sun of God: Ancient Cosmology and Early Christian Symbolism by David Fideler (Starbird used this in her research)

 A Beginner's Guide to Constructing the Universe:  The Mathematical Archetypes of Nature, Art & Science, and a Voyage from 1 to 10 by Michael S. Schneider

  The Gospel of Thomas by Jean Yves-Leloup.

 Beyond Belief : The Secret Gospel of Thomas  by Elaine Pagels In this majestic new book, Pagels (The Gnostic Gospels) ranges panoramically over the history of early Christianity, demonstrating the religion's initial tremendous diversity and its narrowing to include only certain texts supporting certain beliefs. At the center of her book is the conflict between the gospels of John and Thomas. Reading these gospels closely, she shows that Thomas offered readers a message of spiritual enlightenment. Rather than promoting Jesus as the only light of the world, Thomas taught individuals that "there is a light within each person, and it lights up the whole universe.

 Embracing Jesus and the Goddess: A Radical Call for Spiritual Sanity by Carl McColman

 Putting on the Mind of Christ: Inner Work of Christian Spirituality by Jim Marion (you will especially enjoy this book if you are a practicing Christian mystic, are intrigued by St. John of the Cross and Ken Wilber)

 James the Brother of Jesus: the Key to Unlocking the Secrets of Early Christianity by Robert Eisenman

 When Women Were Priests: Women’s Leadership in the Early Church and the Scandal of Their Subordination in the Rise of Christianity by Karen Torjesen

  The Cross and the Grail : Esoteric Christianity for the 21st Century by Robert S. Ellwood  Drawing on the ancient wisdom tradition and the themes and symbols of medieval romance, Ellwood shows Christianity at its most profound to be a philosophical, meditative, and mystical path.

 The Lost Books of the Bible Compiled by Jeremiah Jones (1693-1724) and Archbishop Wake of Canterbury (1657-1737)  This classic has all those books that the official church cut out in the fourth century.  Fascinating reading! Stories of women heroes, teachers and apostles in the early church that we were never told! (i.e. Thecla)

 Prayers of the Cosmos: Meditations on the Aramaic Words of Jesus by Neil Douglas-Klotz and Matthew Fox.  Radical translation of Yeshua's words revealing a mystical, feminist, cosmic Christ. A bit slanted, but there is inspiration to be found here.

 A History of God: The 4000-Year Quest of Judaism, Christianity and Islam  by Karen Armstrong  Read review.

 Rescuing the Bible from Fundamentalism : A Bishop Rethinks the Meaning of Scripture by John Shelby Spong  A controversial author brilliantly reclaims the Bible from the literal interpretation of fundamentalists.
The Tarot Trumps and The Holy Grail  by Margaret Starbird  Grail expert, medieval historian and writer, Margaret Starbird, has spent years researching the stories of the Holy Grail. The accidental discovery of a book on Tarot and research which began to signal links between the cards and the Grail story have led to a fascinating book. Inner Traditions Bear & Co

The three books following were recommended by Shadwynn, author of the famous esoteric Christian classic, The Crafted Cup: Ritual Mysteries of the Goddess & the Grail.

Understanding the Bible: An Introduction for Skeptics, Seekers, and Religious Liberals A thoughtful, warm, and witty introduction Understanding the Bible is designed to help empower skeptics, seekers, nonbelievers, and those of a liberal and progressive outlook to reclaim the Bible from literalists. In making accessible some of the best contemporary historical, literary, political, and feminist readings of the Hebrew and Christian scriptures, it encourages all who would find in the biblical heritage an ally and not an enemy in the quest for a more just and humane world.

 Holy Bible: From Ancient eastern Text by George M. Lamsa  (Aramaic, the language Jesus spoke)

  Jesus, The Evidence  by Ian Wilson  Wilson uses Scriptures, noncanonical writings, and research from a variety of disciplines to penetrate pious mythology and historical distortions. To committed Christians, this book offers a fascinating new perspective on their beliefs. To the skeptic, it provides a convincing explanation of why the beliefs centered on this one man have proven so powerful and pervasive.

 The Gnostic Gospels by Elaine Pagels.  Gnosticism's Christian form grew to prominence in the 2nd century A.D. Ultimately denounced as heretical by the early church, Gnosticism proposed a revealed knowledge of God ("gnosis" meaning "knowledge" in Greek), held as a secret tradition of the apostles. In The Gnostic Gospels, author Elaine Pagels suggests that Christianity could have developed quite differently if Gnostic texts had become part of the Christian canon. Without a doubt: Gnosticism celebrates God as both Mother and Father, shows a very human Jesus's relationship to Mary Magdalene, suggests the Resurrection is better understood symbolically, and speaks to self-knowledge as the route to union with God.

 The New Testament: Its Background, Growth and Content by Bruce Metzger   A classic for researchers.

Mary Magdalene                  Top

New! 14 Steps to Awaken the Sacred Feminine: Women in the Circle of Mary Magdalene by Joan Norton and Margaret Starbird
Women’s circles have been called a “revolutionary-evolutionary movement hidden in plain sight” by Jean Shinoda Bolen and have been hailed as capable of affecting global change. Magdalene Circles are groups of women who focus their shared energies on the wisdom of Mary Magdalene to gain insight into the role of the sacred feminine in their own lives and to help them advance on their spiritual paths. 

This book offers 14 lessons to help understand the wisdom offered by Mary Magdalene’s story and mythos. Among the lessons are prophecies of the bride, why we need the bride, Magdalene’s archetypal pattern of descent, and how modern women carry the Grail. Well-suited for the individual reader as well as a group, each lesson includes an introduction, guided meditation, questions for journaling, and an essay by Margaret Starbird as well as suggestions for group sharing. Placing Mary Magdalene within the pattern of “cyclic renewal” of earth-based religions, this book offers the chance to incorporate the sacred feminine wisdom of Mary Magdalene into everyday life for Christians and spiritual feminists alike. 

The Holy Book of Mary Magdalene: The Path of the Grail Steward, by Jennifer Reif

The Woman with the Alabaster Jar; Mary Magdalene and the Holy Grail by Margaret Starbird  This book is a courageous exploration of an extremely delicate question. Mary Magdalen is called a penitent prostitute by the Roman Catholic Church. The original story of the anointing of Jesus at Bethany by the woman with the alabaster jar may have been misinterpreted by the author of Luke's Gospel since the anointing was similar to the familiar ritual practice of a sacred priestess or temple "prostitute" in the Goddess cults of the Roman Empire.  Mrs. Starbird does an excellent job of researching European history, heraldry, the rituals of Freemasonry, medieval art, symbolism, psychology, mythology, religion and the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures to discover that the meaning of the Holy Grail could be the lost bride of Jesus and the female child she carried within her.

square purple bullet The Gospel of Mary Magdalene (written in 150 A.D.) translated and with commentary by Jean Yves-Leloup.  If you are intrigued with Hinduism / Vedanta and Tibetan Buddhism being similar to earliest Christianity, you simply must read this book.  I like it so much it stays on my night stand.

  Magdalene's Lost Legacy: Symbolic Numbers and the Sacred Union in Christianity by Margaret Starbird.  Author Margaret Starbird decodes the symbolic numbers embedded in the original Greek phrases of the New Testament-revealing the powerful presence of the feminine divine. The New Testament contains wide use of gematria, a literary device that allows the sums of certain phrases to produce sacred numbers. Exploring the hidden meanings behind these numbers, Starbird reveals that the union between Jesus and his bride, Mary Magdalene, formed a sacred partnership that was the cornerstone of the earliest Christian community.

 Holy Blood, Holy Grail by Michael Baigent, et al    A must read.  Knights Templar, Gnostics, Cathars, Jesus' wife and kids, intrigue and mysterious manuscripts--it's all there.  Facts are very well researched, but some of the theories require you to decide for yourself.

 The Messianic Legacy by Michael Baigent, et al     Sequel to the above. Very thorough, hard to put down.

 Bloodline of the Holy Grail: the Hidden Lineage of Jesus Revealed by Laurence Gardner   Traces Jesus flesh and blood descendants, but some have criticized it and his recent book Genesis of the Grail Kings, as being biased toward his employers, a royal house in Europe claiming to be said descendants.  [Actually, the bloodline has spread all over, who can tell where and where not?  If you feel you are part of it, you probably are---genetic memory is nagging you.]

 The Moon Under Her Feet by Clysta Kinstler   A wonderful tale of Mary Magdalene, Mother Mary and Yeshua in a cult of Asherah-Isis setting at the Jerusalem Temple. A must read!

 King Jesus by Robert Graves.  A fictional retelling of the Jesus story.  Compelling and readable.
