These songs, when played in order, provide a deep emotional experience that transforms the spirit.
Virgin Birth is an inner transformation of the soul and a natural process of the spirit. The ancient wisdom of the Birth of the Divine Within originates in the ancient agrarian cultures of the Neolithic. Archeologists have found many representations of a pregnant matriarch that honored the spiritual path for women.
Christianity is not the only tradition that has preserved the ancient knowledge of the Virgin Birth. The Buddhist and Taoist religions share an esoteric text known as "The Secret of the Golden Flower." It describes the alchemy of giving birth to the divine child within the soul. Virgin Birth is the “lost” path of female individuation that Carl Jung and Joseph Campbell proclaimed to exist but could not find. It is the “Heroine’s Journey.”
Experiencing the Nativity Within provides a framework that allows you to create your own Christmas experience. It contains historical tidbits, details of the mystical journey, and suggestions for spiritual practices that will deepen your mystical understanding. I encourage you to use this book as a guide to create your own playlist and spiritual practices that inspire you to illuminate your soul.
Come experience the wonder of the Nativity in a way that transforms your soul.

Throughout history, society has been ruled by either matriarchal or patriarchal spiritual systems. In each belief system, only half of the population was able to reap the benefit of enlightenment. The other half were either spiritually enslaved or destroyed. Jesus' Wedding confirms that both belief systems are valid paths to enlightenment that need to co-exist within society.
In order to create a positive spiritual experience, personal beliefs and practices must be compatible with the psychology of the individual. Full enlightenment requires that a person complete the path of both belief systems. It is time to acknowledge both sides of the spiritual model and allow all persons the chance to fully participate in a spiritual awakening.
Once the overall system is understood, the archetypes that create the stepping-stones of spiritual development will be discussed. This timeless system will empower the individual to make an informed decision about the spiritual teachings and practices that will benefit spiritual development and allow them to approach the path of enlightenment.
