Come explore the foundations of our civilization, from its roots in a highly evolved matriarchal social structure, where for thousands of years women played the pivotal role in leading and nurturing social development. The role of the feminine in society was embraced and relished by all members of humanity for tens of thousands of years. Step back into a time when a now long forgotten worldwide mother goddess religion, well documented in the archeological record, provided a spiritual model for a utopian like existence. Women empowered humanity by the nurturing strength of motherhood.
Yet born of still unexplained circumstances, humanities peaceful utopian like existences was smashed by powers beyond its control. A new and violent social structure emerged from the darkest regions of human consciousness, which spread itself across a world befuddled by catastrophic environmental changes. The sudden self-awareness of the officious male ego, created a patriarchal faction of humanity that would compel their belief systems on the world through their newly established matrix of weaponry and warfare.
Yet today we live a rapidly revolving social structure, which is regaining its awareness of the importance of the feminine essence, to the survival of humanity on this planet. The relationship between the ancient goddess based religion and the lives of the women who lived in its shadow is evaluated in the contexts of better understanding the importance of today's feminist movements to our society.
The question framed, is how the increased equality of women today will influence and mold our social institutions of tomorrow to provide a better world for all of us. Where will this self-realization take us, and what will be the consequences of the ultimate clash of the brute force of the patriarch, with the irresistible persuasion of the natural feminine?
