Andrew Harvey, a renowned writer and modern mystic, speaks of the re-emergence in our patriarchal society of sacred feminine values for people of all faiths throughout the world. Drawing from his penetrating studies of religion and spirituality as well as his own profound mystical experiences, Harvey believes that until we acknowledge the full face of the Virgin Mary, we cannot absorb the full force of her son, Jesus. "Mary is nothing less than the incarnation on the Earth of the Divine Mother in her full power, and Jesus is as much the son of the Divine Mother as he is of the Divine Father." Harvey eloquently explores the feminine face of God in many religions, and stresses that we must celebrate feminine ferocity as much as nurturing and loving tenderness, because it is that very ferocity "that brings in the clarity that destroys illusion, that aspect that demands transformation in the name of love and in the name of justice." (hosted by Michael Toms)
