The Mago Gift Work is committed to the collective cultivation of the consciousness of WE in S/HE. We aim to promote and advocate the consciousness of the Great Goddess/Mago. Please consider supporting the Mago Gift Work in a way that suits you including volunteerism and/or donation.
Join The Mago Pod The term “pod” means a group of whales who travel together across the oceans throughout life time. Applied to us, it means those who swim through the waves of life with the Great Goddess in a broad sense and those who are connected with us in a tangible manner in a narrow sense. By calling us the Mago Pod, we intend to redefine ourselves in continuum and solidarity with animals and other species of the planet Earth. Those who are committed to the Cause of Magoism represent a motley community of Goddessians/Magoists who partake the collective effort of reviving the consciousness of We in S/HE in the early part of 21st century. We invite you to join the Mago Pod. Anyone who reveres the working of Goddess can join us, regardless of one’s skin color, sex/gender, nationality, sexuality, or class. Here are some ways for you to connect and contribute to the Mago Pod.

- 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. First, once again I am astonished at the amount of labor that went into this amazing creation. 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 […]

- She Rises Book Review by Dr. Moses Seenarine
Order it in Mago Bookstore! [Originally posted in Cyborgs Vs Earth Goddess.] During the last two decades, the feminist literature has expanded to become more diverse and inclusive. Yet, relatively few books have emerged which focus on Goddesses and their significance to feminism and women’s liberation. This is due in part to a complete lack of interest by academics and feminists alike in exploring either historical or contemporary Goddess cultures. This disparaging view of gynocentric tradition is unfortunate, since it […]
