Publisher's Summary

In this comprehensive and groundbreaking work, mystical scholar Andrew Harvey unearths traces of the sacred feminine in major world religions - Hinduism, Islam (Sufism), Buddhism, Taoism, and Christianity - and in aboriginal and indigenous wisdom traditions. Harvey takes a strong stand against our dependence on "gurus" and "masters", proposing instead an egalitarian model of spiritual community based on intimate groups of mutually supportive guides and friends. The Return of the Mother is an eloquent and passionate call to all to rediscover and reclaim an authentic and empowering relationship with the divine and re-create a sacred life in this world.
Andrew Harvey is a renowned writer, lecturer, and teacher. An Englishman born in India, Harvey was educated at Oxford and at 21 became the youngest fellow in the history of All Soul's College. In 1977 he returned to India and began a lifelong spiritual quest, studying and practicing Hindu mysticism at the ashram of Sri Aurobindo, with Tibetan Buddhist teacher Thuksey Rinpoche and with the Christian mystic Bede Griffiths. Returning to teach and write in Europe and America, Harvey continued his explorations with extensive study in Eastern and Western mystical literature.

The Return of the Mother

This book offer crucial insight and understanding of the nature of the Divine Feminine, the Divine Mother and how we can connect to Her power, honor her prayer and embody Her Love. Andrew is a mystic who recognises Her call to us and has devoted his life in service to getting this message out into the world to literally save us. There has never been a more urgent message than this. There has never been a more critical time and our future depends on our Love for our Mother in all Her forms. Andrew's book offers inspiration to look into our hearts and do whatever it takes to be part of this holy revolution. Our Divine Mother needs you to hear his message. Thank you for making this book available in audio Andrew. I will listen to it again and again,
