Mago Pilgrimage: Journey to the Primoridal Home via Magoist Epic Narratives and Photo Essays
Author: Helen Hye-Sook Hwang, Ph.D.
Forthcoming 2016 by Mago Books.
This book aims at introducing the long-forbidden epic of the Great Goddess, the Budoji (Epic of the Emblem City), which secretly survived throughout history and recently revived in modern Korea. Epitomized as “Return to the Origin of the Great Goddess/Mago,” the Budoji, the principal text of Magoism, guides the reader to the primordial consciousness of the Creatrix through the story of the cosmogonic origin and the vicissitudes of the Mago Clan on planet Earth. Dr. Hwang’s photo essays open the door to the ancient understanding of Mago Pilgrimage, as known and transmitted to pre-patriarchal Korean ancestors; the journey to ONESELF in which one encounters the Story of the Creatrix.

- The Mago Way book review by Dr. Glenys Livingstone
Order it Mago Bookstore! This book, The Mago Way: Re-discovering Mago, the Great Goddess from East Asia, is an important and major contribution of scholarship to the rising global return of gynocentric consciousness; to the return of the Female as imagined source of all being – and it is an wholistic vision, wherein no difference is known “between you and me or between one nation and the other”. It is a radical work. The work that this book unfolds on […]
- She Rises Book Review by Sara Wright
“She Rises” uses a thousand perspectives to perceive Her Presence! Yesterday I finally finished this extraordinary book and wanted to share a few thoughts with you.

Secondly, I wish this volume had been available to me during the ten years that I taught Women’s Studies. I believe that the Women’s movement cannot survive without the goddess in whatever form she may manifest, and […]
