“We are in a deep transformational crucible in which communities like The Sophia Center represent a crucial, heroic community with a vision that is sharply different from mainstream society. We have to hold space for each other to go through our deep transformations.”

The Emergence of Sophia

 

“Foreshadowed in the pages of the Red Book, hidden behind the images of Salome the seductress, and Elijah the wise one, written into the cosmologies of almost every major world religion — yet culturally exiled to the shadowy world of the complex. She has remained hidden and marginalized for centuries. Until now. Now she emerges from the cultural chaos, carrying vessels of wisdom and compassion. Her name is Sophia.”

— Loralee M. Scott, Founder and Director, The Sophia Center for Transformative Learning
