“In the beginning the Elohim created the Heavens and the Earth.”
Elohim, the Divine Feminine, is present throughout the Bible but, as part of the oral Perennial Wisdom Tradition, she is hidden. She is meant to be hidden — to be discovered only by those who are ready to understand her power.
The development of the human soul is revealed throughout the Hebrew Testament in stories of love, hate, adultery, deception, betrayal, murder, compassion and redemption —a blockbuster told by more than 20 generations of feisty and powerful women, every one of whom still has something to teach us today.
Maggy will weave the story of Sophia, the feminine wisdom tradition from Shekhinah to Mary Magdalene through the filters of Judaic mysticism, history and social customs to see what we can still learn from the Matriarchs and Heroines today. Each of them is an archetype within us and can show us our strengths – and our shadow.
Men are most welcome at this workshop – it is about the feminine not the female!
Rev. Maggy Whitehouse is co-pastor at A Community of Prodigals, half of the weekly podcast, ‘Train Wrecks for Jesus’ and has been studying and teaching Kabbalah in the UK, USA and Europe for 30 years. She is the author of 20 books, a stand-up comedian and former BBC radio presenter and ITV documentary presenter. http://treeofsapphires.com
“This is a most scholarly and insightful exercise. It brings the attention to review the usually unconsidered side of the feminine as regards the different levels of the Bible and its folklore.’— Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi
“Maggy Whitehouse is, undoubtedly, the foremost female Kabbalistic teacher and author alive on the planet. She brings clear eyes, deep thought and a loving heart to the mysterious process of unlocking wisdom from its ancient vaults. Let her entertain you, embolden you and awaken you to the power of your own essential nature.”— Professor Peter Bolland, Chair of Philosophy at Southwestern College, San Diego
“Philo, a highly-educated Jew in Egypt in the mid-first century CE would have recognised Maggy Whitehouse’s approach to the Hebrew Bible. She enables us to look at the women of ancient Israel in the way the first Christians would have known them.— Dr Margaret Barker, author of “The Lady in the Temple”
“Terrifying.”— Alan Bookbinder, former head of BBC Religion and Ethics
