    I am interested too, but I think that a log of all members on a website is a bad idea...

    Seems like quite an involved mythology. Why not just be environmentalists with a reverence for Earth? Why do we need all this religious mumbo-jumbo?

    As a matter of administration, I should point out that this Madriism is, by definition, a revealed religion (in that it has revealed itself to the OP) and thus shouldn't be posted here in this board. Can a Mod migrate to another board?

    I have never heard of this religion. I wonder what your views are. Anyone got any resources on this religion?

    What a mysterious thread...and with people waiting to hear more but only a broken link.

    I, like the OP author, found my own faith and gradually come to realize that the story of the Abrahamic God once included a Goddess. In today's world we are gradually reawakening to the Goddess in various ways. The MeToo movement is but a tremor.

    In science we have systems theory which can be seen in ecology, evolution, chaos theory and complex, adaptive systems. These studies show us the systemic nature of our shared reality. They reveal the deep interconnectivity of our reality.

    They are of the Goddess in the sense that psychologically the feminine is associated with the cooperative while the masculine is associated with the separative. The separative vs the cooperative has to do with the organization of psychic energy with respect to the various inner voices we all have and how the ego orchestrates those voices. The cooperative method is to share the energy between the voices thereby producing an ego as a diffuse web of voices in harmony. The separative method is to establish a single voice with power over all others with ideal being sole control of psychic power within consciousness.

    Both methods are unobtainable in a perfect sense and we all require both approaches to obtain a healthy psychic balance. Both forms of ego development are seen in dreams as a recurring motif in all dreamer's experience.

    The movie Avatar expresses some of this through the development of a rich alien world with a heightened experience of an intelligent planet. Also the movie The Biggest Little Farm is inspirational in how a farm can come to represent a mini-Gaia shining like a jewel against the landscape.
