The Return of the Black Madonna by Matthew Fox

"The Black Madonna", Lauren Raine, 2018

How the Black Madonna
Is Shaking Us Up for the Twenty-First Century

11. The Black Madonna Calls us to a renaissance of culture, religion and the city. Isis often wears a regal headdress that symbolizes her name as meaning “throne” or “queen.” Erich Neumann has written about Isis as “Throne.”

Without a balance of male/female, heart/head, body/spirit truly happening at all levels of education from childhood to professional degrees? How will a renaissance happen if education is left behind? What role will art play when the artist too lets go of the internalized oppression of the modern era and recommits himself/herself to serving the community and to serving the larger community of ecological sustainability?

Fascinating! And now, this country can move forward again and trump will be relegating to the trash bin of history!
