A Seven-Part Self-Guided Course with Lila Tresemer
Sophia: her name is synonymous with “Wisdom,” “Divine Feminine,” “Shakti,” and “Great Mother.”
She has been called many different names through time and traditions. Among them are: “Isis,” “Cybele,” “All-Mother,” and “Holy Mother.” She is the “first idea of Creation,” the sound that carried the vibration and signature of matter; she is the “Prima Materia” of alchemy, the “Anima Mundi" or "World Soul,” and the limitless light of Kabbalah, “Ain Soph Aur.”
And... she is largely forgotten.
Sophia Lineage is dedicated to Her Story, and to the essential need for us to re-member Her.
Gnostic texts largely unearthed in 1945 brought the importance of Sophia and of Mary Magdalene to light, and changed a way of thinking about the Feminine in relationship to 2,000 years of patriarchy and oppression. Many scholars have pursued the importance of re-establishing the Feminine to our cosmological view and to our creation stories, which form and influence how people find their place in culture.
Our fundamental belief is that we are “Anthropos” (the potential human being) in connection to Sophia. Our work in a synergetic manner is an essential part of rising up to discover how to be the most valuable vessels we can be during challenging times. We are so much more effective in our spiritual work when we are able to share it with others!
The Sophia Gnostic Creation Story, an animated creation myth video created by Lila Tresemer, is strongly featured in this course. You can view the creation myth here.
Through this self-guided course, you will explore ways of connecting with the Sacred Feminine within, finding your own unique signature of connection with Her, and allowing that to guide you in the unfolding relationship to realizing your full potential.
The Sophia Lineage course is delivered over seven sessions, including video recordings and handouts that you move through at your own pace.
Connecting to the Sacred Feminine
We find our personal connection to the emerging remembrance of the Sacred Feminine. The highest value in this work is to be in a direct connection with Her essence, and to draw on what you hold as sacred. You will be invited to create a dedication and an altar to honor this 7-session journey.
Sophia Elements Meditation
“The significant problems we have cannot be solved at the same level of thinking with which we created them.” ~ Albert Einstein (attributed)
This is a key statement in how we approach this work together, and how to transform personal as well as cultural challenges to the principles and values of Feminine Wisdom. We also begin a deeper dive into the Sophia Elements Meditation.
Navigating Collective Challenges
We make this process deeply personal as well as related to the collective. We can only address the external when we are more deeply in touch with the internal. We explore situations of climate change, and the many challenges facing the planet today, with a model for how to engage with them and avoid burnout!
Illumination & Creation
We explore Light, as it relates to the brain and the illumination of our own nervous system. Being a vessel of that Light, we can flood into patterns related to creation: the 4 elements and the 12 zodiacal signs. All of these are relevant to creating a working template of transformation.
Geometries to Embody Templates
Geometries within the StarHouse become another way to embody powerful templates that are shared by others. We engage in a meditation practice that is being held by many others at this time, related to the elements and how to consider environmental issues of global concern.
Sacred Earth Activism
Sacred Earth Activism is a term that we engage with very powerfully. How do we take a stand for the planet and be as effective as possible, working with universal pattern? And what is the role of love as the fifth element?
We review some of the history, both known and forgotten, of the lineage of Sophia in the Western world. An opportunity to continue to work with this lineage is presented.
