Enlightened Cinema presents a new film seminar:
DECODING THE WESTERN PATH:
Esoteric Mysticism, The Divine Feminine and The Abrahamic Religions
Alternate Wednesdays beginning May 10
Abraham heard a voice, and from that ancient call emerged Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. This new film seminar will explore the esoteric teachings and heresies of the Western Path through a wide angle of perspectives. The DaVinci Code has brought issues to light long suppressed by the Orthodox Church. Were Jesus and Mary Magdalene lovers? Are secret societies sinister and benign controlling our destinies? What does it mean that harlots and fallen women from Eve to Mary Magdalene are given key roles in the Bible story?
Two thousand years ago, we lived in a world of gods and goddesses. Today, we live in a world solely of gods. Women in most cultures have been stripped of their spiritual power. How would the world be different if the primary image of the Christian faith were not a naked man dying on a cross but a naked woman giving birth? What if Mary, not Jesus, said "this is my body, this is my blood?" The questions are compelling.
How do the newly discovered Gospel of Judas and other Gnostic texts impact the understanding of Jesus? How does quantum physics help us understand the ancient paths of Kaballah, Sufism, and esoteric Christianity? Goddess energy, divine marriage, sacred sex, global conspiracies, and earth based Marian religions are all grist for our mill. The secrets of the Holy Grail and the greater questions of redemption and forgiveness, religious fundamentalism and mystical experience will all be explored in this fascinating video discussion series.
