Women and Spirituality

Part 1: Goddess Remembered

Goddess Remembered is the first in a series of three films about Women and Spirituality made by Donna Reed. Part 1 focuses on the existence of pre-Christian Goddess-worshiping religions, which fostered an egalitarian society based on human cooperation. This civilization thrived for a long time without the intrusion of war. Visits to Paleolithic caves in France and temples in Crete give a glimpse of artifacts from this gynocentric world.

Scholars Merlin Stone, Jean Bolen and Charlene Spretnak draw connections between these ancient cultures, and women's contemporary interest in a spirituality based on harmony with nature. (Edited from spiritualityandpractice.com)

 

Part 2: The Burning Times

The Burning Times offers a chilling look at the persecution of women accused of being witches in Europe between the 15th and 17th centuries. The Christian church and the state cooperated in a concerted effort to wipe out the power and independence of midwives, healers, and crones. Thousands were tortured and burned at the stake.

Matthew Fox, Margit Adler and others discuss the misogyny and sinister religious forces behind this massive campaign. (Edited from spiritualityandpractice.com)

 

Part 3: Full Circle

In the last part of the Women and Spirituality trilogy authors, social activists, teachers and feminists talk about the continuing battle against patriarchy and the need for a closer connection with the natural world. The film depicts the ways in which various individuals are finding empowerment through meeting together, performing rituals and fashioning a spirituality that is Goddess-based.

The Revelation Of The Pyramids

Created on Saturday, 10 September 2011 11:26

The Revelation Of The Pyramids takes an in depth look at one of the seven wonders of the world, The Great Pyramids of Giza. Mystery has surrounded these epic structures for centuries with theories varying from the scientific to the bizarre.

This documentary puts forth yet another and in my view very plausible theory of what lies behind this greatest of archaeological mysteries: an important message for mankind through time and space.

Riddles in Stone – The Secret Architecture of Washington DC

Created on Wednesday, 25 March 2009 19:55

Riddles In Stone: The Secret Architecture of Washington, D.C. explores the fascinating history behind the origins and focus of the USA. How was the precise location of Washington D.C. determined? What is the meaning of the seemingly countless occult images in the nation's capitol? The interviewees in this documentary are experts on both sides of the heated debate.

Leading researchers maintain that occult architecture permeates the city and conceals a secret agenda. Freemason apologists defend some of the most direct and hard-hitting questions concerning the influence of Masonry in America and its symbolism in Washington, D.C.

Was D.C. laid out according to the pattern of the stars? Is there really a pentagram in the street layout north of the White House? Does a Masonic square and compass extend from the Capitol building to the Washington monument? Why is the city filled with zodiac symbols, mysterious faces and various god and goddess images? If America was founded as a "Christian" nation, where are the images of Jesus Christ? Or does Washington D.C. symbolize another Christ, the Masonic Christ?

Very interesting documentary. Draw your own conclusions.

Peter Joseph, the maker of this film, gathered information from many sources and put it together in a way that shows how people are manipulated by large institutions, governments and economic powers. The film is divided into 3 parts:

1. Religion: Pagan astrological beliefs compared to modern and ancient religions.

2. 9/11: An overview of the numerous questionable aspects of this immensely important event.

3. The Federal Reserve Bank: A history of its formation and ability to control the economy.

With many news clips from important events in history and audio excerpts from those who believe people are being misled about the level of freedom they have, this riveting documentary will anger those who agree with it as well as those who do not.

A very important piece of work that all free thinking people should see.
