What makes 2014 Mago Pilgrimage compelling?

The encounter of the topic of Mago for my dissertational research in 2000 was the most significant event in my life that endowed me with a sense of life’s purpose. I found the Original Vision in Mago, the Great Goddess. Now the encounter with Mago Castle in Mt. Jiri during 2013 Mago Pilgrimage to Korea explains me why I invite people from around the world to the cradle of Magoism. Reality is unfolding. All we need to do is to keep walking with the Original Vision.

1. Be part of the public unveiling of Mago Castle in Blue Crane Village (Cheonghak-dong) Mt. Jiri, nearly four-millenniaun-old traditional Magoist village in Korea.

2. Experience ancient female cultures of Korea shrouded in modern outlook

3. Proclaim the reality of the Great Goddess in which all are related as kindred

Classes will be offered in preparation for 2014 Mago Pilgrimage, co-taught by Dr. Hwang and Dr. Livingstone. Please join us in the online class, Gaia and Mago: Rekindling Old Gynocentric Unity, is offered from Feb. 15 throughout July 19, 2014. Discount is available for 2014 Mago Pilgrimage participants (See the link for more info).
