***NEW DATE*** June 12, 2022:
JOIN US FOR A THOUGHT-PROVOKING DIALOGUE on June 12, when our guest will be Marguerite Mary Rigoglioso, Ph.D. and Founding Director of Seven Sisters Mystery School, author of The Cult of Divine Birth in Ancient Greece, Virgin Mother Goddesses of Antiquity, and The Mystery Tradition of Immaculate Conception: Mary and the Lineage of Virgin Births.

ABOUT HER TALK:
Revealing Anne, Mother of Goddess – A talk & discussion on female empowerment thru reclaiming the most hidden figure of the Christ Consciousness enterprise
Most people don’t realize that Mother Mary had a life before Jesus… and that this means she also had a mother. Most people also don’t realize that Mary herself, the poster child for divine birth and an emanation of Divine Mother Goddess, was also MIRACULOUSLY CONCEIVED by this mother.
Join Marguerite Rigoglioso in her carefully and intuitively guided research as we explore Mary’s mother, Anne, to learn who she was in the Hebrew community of which she was a part, and how she accomplished this divine achievement. We’ll explore Anne’s possible connection to the Essenes and the Oracle sisterhood. And we’ll connect the dots between Anne, her ancestor Sarah (mother of Isaac), and her probable sister Elizabeth (mother of John the Baptist), to uncover a network of Hebrew women who knew how to engage secret womb practices for bringing forth avatars to the planet.
What were they up to? What was their motivation? How did they do it? How did they collaborate with their male partners in this great work? And what does this mean for women’s empowerment today? Join us for an intriguing exploration and lively conversation on this fascinating topic whose implications point to a bold new future for the human race.
