Sophia Speaks - the Veil
Back in 2003, just before the invasion of Iraq, I directed a performance at the Black Box Theatre in Oakland, California. Included in that event was a ritual dedicated to Hagia Sophia, the Feminine Face of God in early Christianity, to pray for the arising of the Great Mother, to pray for Peace.
Our event closed with a meditation in the dark, and when the lights came on they beheld Ann Waters aspecting the Goddess Sophia, the light rising from chaos and darkness. I shall never forget the power of that.
And also the power of this extraordinary music/poem by the Bay Area group The Veil.
