Our Lady of Spiritual Audacity
Age Range/Type: Adult
Located in: Des Moines, Iowa
Key Contact: Lady Isadora
Spiritual Path: Wiccan-Pagan, in open dialogue
Status: Established Group
Community Support: Open Circles... Legal Clergy... Teaching Available
Group Overview: Lady Isadora, a longtime clergywoman of the Craft with legal ministerial status, and daughter Lady Andred are co-founders of Our Lady of Spiritual Audacity, an organization inspired by such “uppity women” heroines of male-dominated religion as Joan of Arc; Pope Joan (Joan English, whose legendary existence as Pope “John” VIII the Catholic Church emphatically denies, yet for whom there remain many persuasive clues – see Peter Stanford’s *The Legend of Pope Joan*) ; and medieval mystic abbess-composer Hildegard von Bingen, “the Sibyl of the Rhein.”
Co-priestesses Andred and Isadora are life-long Witches and Goddess-religionists, not disaffected Roman Catholics nor former Christians. OLSA is dedicated to exploring and promoting public dialogue and awareness about the apparently Pagan roots of the legendary Jesus figure and original Gnostic Christianity, as theorized with abundant impressive evidence in such revolutionary books as *The Jesus Mysteries: Was the ‘Original Jesus’ a Pagan God?* by the controversial and thought-provoking Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, *The Christ Conspiracy: The Greatest Story Ever Sold* by incisively insightful archaeologist-historian Acharya S, and *The Pagan Christ: Recovering the Lost Light* by Tom Harpur, distinguished academic and former Anglican priest.
O have you heard that there are street-corner preachers in the world today
Who think Jesus died to take their minds away?
I know they’re wrong – I know that we’re not deceived!
But they’ll tell you ‘the devil’ has got your soul
They’ll rant and they’ll rave with their rigmarole
Don’t let them win! Stand up for what you believe!
They’ll throw the Book at you
Try to convert you to the Father and the Son
There’s something missing when they leave out the Mother
Of everyone – don’t let them bring you down!
Ye priests and ye priestesses of the Earth
Come drink from Her grail of the soul’s true worth
The whole wide world shall be Her Table Round!
– from “Table Round” (words and music by Lady Isadora) , Priestess of the Pentacle, ©1990, Dance of Life Productions (ASCAP)
