Sacred Salon -Messiah of 10,000 Names, Magna Mata Palm Sunday
Our Messiah of Ten Thousand Names - Presented on
Magna Mater Palm Sunday @ the  Goddess Temple of Orange County.

Within Judeo-Christian tradition, Palm Sunday traditionally commemorates the triumphal entry of Jesus into Jerusalem to celebrate the Passover. The gospels record the arrival of Jesus riding into the city on a donkey, while the crowds spread their cloaks and palm branches on the street to honor him as their long-awaited Messiah and King.  But long before the new religion of Christianity arose, The Great Mother was celebrated in the ancient world at this season of spring by carrying in procession the branches of palms, pines and other trees.   Herstory records a Creatrix and Messiah –“She of Ten Thousand Names”—far, far older than the deities of Judaism, Christianity, Islam and other more recent religions.

So today I humbly take on the role of contemporary bard and prophetess to reclaim the Herstory, of the long-awaited return of the Great She, Goddess, our female Messiah of Ten Thousand Names, and we will together vision the prophecies attached to that coming, because that is the Goddess way

How might life be different with the Divine Feminine or Goddess birthed at the center of the world, particularly for women and our like-minded brothers, without the domination of Patriachary's clenched fists?

Earl Lee & Tony burrought
Earl Lee, University Professor at Pittsburg State University and the author of numerous books and articles will discuss his book, From the Bodies of the Gods: Psychoactive Plants & the Cults of the Dead....The origins of modern religion in human sacrifice, ritual cannibalism, visionary intoxication, and the Cult of the Dead.  We'll explore -• Explores ancient practices of producing sacred hallucinogenic foods and oils from the bodies of the dead for ritual consumption and religious anointing

• Explains how these practices are deeply embedded in the symbolism, theology, and sacraments of modern religion, specifically Christianity and the Eucharist

* These practices continued openly into the Dark Ages, when they were suppressed and adapted into the worship of saintly bones--or continued in secret by a few “heretical” sects, such as the Cathars and the Knights Templar. While little known today, these rites remain deeply embedded in the symbolism, theology, and sacraments of modern religion and bring a much more literal meaning to the church’s “Holy Communion”

Crossing the threshold into the second half of the show, we have author Tony Burroughs, author of The Law of Agreement helping us discover the true power of intention.  Learn about intentional living and how when we lend our agreement to a belief, we reinforce it and make it stronger.  Tony will tell us about the opportunity in adversity and what happens when we don't get what we want.  Tony is a storyteller and co-founder of The Intenders of the Highest Good, a grassroots community movement with Intenders Circles in countries across the globe

April 3
David Chandler & Dominic James
Tonight for your listening pleasure we will start off with a very controversial topic that might sound off-topic, but is it really?  Why the Buildings Fell on 9/11.  David Chandler, retired physics and math teacher for three decades got curious about how the buildings could have fallen on 9-11 after seeing videos. He drew on his knowledge and experience to analyze what he saw happening and he's going to share it with you.  Why isn't this off-topic for us?  Well, once one considers how history has been written by the conquerors, how patriarchy uses sexism, racism and worker exploitation to get what it wants, how Herstory has been subverted, how an administration can lie a country into a bogus war - then your mind opens to many possibilities and one has to have the courage to ask hard questions of the status quo and use critical thinking even when it leads to disturbing possibilities!

Then in the second part of the show, Dominick James, author of The Reiki Man trilogy, will talk about the power of using Reiki.  We'll look at what it is, why some in the Church are so afraid of it and warn their congregants against using it.  We'll also discuss what Reiki can lead to and how it might help your life.

At the top of the show, Paul Levy, author of Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil is with us revealing the contagious psychospiritual disease of the soul, a parasite of the mind, that is currently being acted out en masse on the world state via collective psychosis of titanic proportions.  This mind virus - which Native Americans have called "wetiko" - covertly operates through the unconscious blind spots in the human psyche, rendering people oblivious to their own madness and compelling them to act against their own best interests.  Sound familiar?  Drawing on insights from Jungian psychology, shamanism, alchemy, spiritual wisdom traditions and personal experience, Paul shows us that hidden within the venom of wetiko is its own antidote, which once recognized can help us wake up and bring back sanity to our society.  We'll certainly ask him if this might explain how people vote against their economic interests!

David Hillman & Lauren Mills
>I'm calling tonight's show, Beyond 50 Shades of Grey.....not to be sensational but because this interview is not for the faint of heart or sexually repressed.   Dr. David Hillman, returns to fearlessly discuss what his research into ancient times reveals about how closely linked sex, drugs and religion were in the ancient world.  Dr. Hillman, who translates his own Greek and does not have to rely on filtered Christian translations to know what the ancients were up to, cites ancient sources giving us a glimpse into what was going on in the ancient mystery cults and how sacred sexuality exhalted women.  Never a disappointment, David explains why there was no distinction between sex and religion in the ancient world, why Christianity fought so hard against these Pagan practices, why ancient women mounted phallic statues and performed vaginal penetration via stone, inserted snakes in their vaginas and what orgies and orgasms led to in ancient times - not what you think!   This wasn't all about sexual gratification - in fact there was a much higher intention involved.  Dr. Hillman reveals ancient sources who tell us about all this and more -  snake venoms used in cultic sexual rituals popular in Greece and Rome and how classical civilization relied heavily upon the use of cannibis, opiates and hallucinogens, mixed with sexual stimulants.  Not beholding to organized and conservative Academia, Dr. Hillman shares what the ancients were actually saying, not what's politically correct!  You're in for some jaw-dropping stuff so hang on to your seat!

In the second half of the show, we have Lauren Nicole Mills will share with us tips for Goal Setting for the New Year!
