In this course, we will look at the evolution of the Divine Mother beginning with our human origins in Africa. Using an interdisciplinary approach, we will examine archaeology, art, mythology, history, and ritual in our consideration of Goddess connections between Paleolithic, Neolithic and Bronze Age cultures into the Vedic, then Kaula and Śakta period of South Asia. We will also look to textual sources (Rg Veda and Devi Mahatmyam) and the prevalence, significance, and function of Devi (Goddess) within these texts. We will learn about and apply Organic Inquiry, an “emergent qualitative methodology that approaches research as if it were sacred.” Over 30,000 years of non-textual evidence will offer an alternate and essential understanding of prehistory, history, and goddess-centered cultures across continents and millennia. History may have been written “by and for the victors;” however, this much-needed course opens the conversation to include more than half of the human race who, for the most part, have been left out of the discussion.
