Doesn't anyone have any comments on the artwork that I uploaded? esp. Roerich? Not interested, or is it just "old-hat" to everyone else?

Hi Christine,

I saw these when you first put them up. I specifically love the Titian painting. I find it interesting that we find the three Marys there. I am not well versed on this particular part in the Bible. I will have to see what happens more intimately.

The Roerich one reminds me of the Indian take of Shatki. She is sitting on the Lotus petals which is considered the Great Mother in a sense.

Although I have mixed a few things up in regards to the Mary research I would like to say once again I hope you can write a booklet or even start a lecture series pertaining to your Feminine Divine understanding. I am finding that Magdalene is being defined by people without an Anthroposophic understanding and I do so think it is important that Anthroposophy be at the forefront of this mystery other wise we will have others define this mystery from a very different stream.

I leave you with a small part of the introduction from this little book called The Goddess by Dr. Steiner printed in 2001 for the first time.

"There has been a significant rediscovery of spirituality in recent years, especially concerning the feminine side of the traditions, which spoke of the goddess in her many forms. Myths and symbols from Egypt to Scandanavia, from India to Ireland have been explored and given real new life. Such a revitilization is welcome, and enriching- not least because it can also lead to a re-examination of our assumptions about the spiritual life more generally, going well beyond the mere carving out of a 'feminist' niche. for once we begin to look we find that this aspect of spirituality was emphasized and understood in many area where we might not immediately think of looking for it. Thus we are made to challenge our own presuppositions." Andrew J. Welburn

All my best,
Dottie
