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.

It is a radical work. The work that this book unfolds on […]
