Our Earth and world is in dire need of wise, steadfast beings. With our climate crisis, our political and racial divisions, and increasing hate crimes, we need to be actively engaged in some form of loving action that is informed by a greater wisdom. No matter your tradition or path, or those who have no path at all, the 21 Aspects of Wisdom are readily available to all.
Wisdom in Greek translates as Sophia, and is given the feminine gender, and yet paradoxically, “she” is beyond gender. This is part of her mystery. She is the Indwelling Wisdom deeply embedded within every being and every living thing in creation. Her only desire is to draw us back home into our own wisdom-self, in order that we may then live this for the good of all.
Mary Magdalene embodied this Wisdom, becoming a spiritual adept and Way Shower with Yeshua. She will guide and show us how we can open that same doorway into our own lives.
The 21 Aspects reveal to us Sophia’s manifold nature, and subsequently our own nature. When entered into, they then become Actions of Love, to our own souls, to others, and to our Earth and world.
In this first module the Aspects we study are: Intelligence, HOLY-Sacred, Unique to give a brief example for our first session: we will distinguish between the intellect and intelligence - we will explore all the different types of intelligence - intelligence of the body, of the individual organs within the body, even the intelligence of the skin! we will look to the intelligence of the emotions, of the greater mind, of the natural world, and perhaps most prevalent of all - the intelligence of love. Each will spend time on whichever form of intelligence calls to them.
What We Explore:
This is the first module of a 7 Module Course. Each module is for 3 months. We will study 3 Wisdom Aspects per module, that is, 1 Aspect per month, giving time to fully contemplate and live into them in our everyday lives as Actions of Love.
~ Learn of the different faces of Sophia. Sophia as the Great Cosmic Wisdom Mother. Pistis Sophia, meaning Faith Wisdom and Zoe Sophia, meaning Life Wisdom. We will explore how these are all inter-related within us.
~ Empty ourselves of who we think we are and what we think we know, thus making space to hear, feel, and see Sophia and her Aspects
~ Leave behind all previous definitions of the Aspects we are studying and open to the greater cosmic wisdom of Sophia and what they mean to Her
~ Open to the embodied wisdom of Mary Magdalene through chant and prayer
~ Learn how Mary Magdalene embodied these Aspects through her life on Earth, through both the difficulties and the joys
~ Contemplate the greater cosmic awareness and presence of Sophia in your life
~ Experience the translation of your contemplation into Actions of Love
~ Learn the basic history of the Judaic-Christian Wisdom books
~ See below for brief example of what our first session entails.
