Description: “Mago” is an East Asian term for the Great Goddess and “Magoism,” in a narrow sense, refers to the mytho-historic-cultural matrix of East Asia that venerates the Great Goddess. In a broad sense, it indicates the gynocentric cultural matrix of the Great Goddess. We explore the universal and specific nature of Magoism. It is a required course for Magoist Studies Certificate Programs.

Co-relation between trans-patriarchal feminism and Magoism
Undoing the persepective of nationalism, ethnocentrism, and colonialism

Why Magoist Studies? Because it provides one with the perspective of the Whole, Being Here and Now for all, that has begun from the Great Goddess and guides us through our cosmic and personal time/space. Magoist Studies Programs aim at promoting the consciousness of WE that is derived from the knowing of the Great Goddess/Primordial Mother/Creatrix. All programs and activities are designed to awaken one’s innate power to self-teach (de-educate), self-heal, and self-transform. Reading/researching/writing/creating is our guide to enter S/HE Reality or the Way of the Great Goddess (Mago). By cultivating/sharpening/refining gynocentric intellectuality, we re-member oneself and the terrestrial eco-community to the Original Story of WE/HERE/NOW at the time of rapid changes brought by doomed patriarchy.
