마고학자로서의 나의 비전안나 차노바 석사

이 발표는 다음 세가지를 포함한다:

  1. 간략한 개인 소개: 마고아카데미의 첫 번째 학자가 되기까지 내 인생의 중요한 순간들
  2. 현재까지 진행된 나의 마고아카데미 경력과 미래 계획. “지유” 관련 정보와 <부도지>와 다른 두 신비주의적 책 <오라 린다>와 <보이니치 문헌>의 비교연구.
  3. 마고문화에 뿌리를 둔 국제적 집합소로서의 마고아카데미에 대한 학습, 연구 또 존재의 모든 차원에서의 구조적 변화를 위한 나의 비전.

 

마고순례와 마고과제헬렌 박사

마고순례는 2000년 미국에서 황박사의 동아시아의 대여신 마고에 관한 연구에서 자연스럽게 파생되었다. 초기에는 황박사의 개인적이고 비공식적인 행사로 한국여성들이 참여했다. 2013년부터 황박사는 외국인들이 참여하는 연례 “한국으로의 마고순례”를 조직하여 인도하였다. 현재 마고순례는 마고문화학 연수 프로그램의 필수과목으로 설정되어 있다. 마고순례는 외국 참가자들이 내국 참가자들과 언어와 문화를 넘어서 함께 경험하고, 만나고, 나누는 장을 제공한다. 마고과제는 여신주의자들/마고문화인들이 대여신, 즉 창조어머니 안에서 하나되는 인식을 증진하려는 노력이자 과업이다. 2010년 이래로 황박사는 전 세계 대중들과 전문가들을 위한 마고복본 매가진, 마고아카데미, 마고북스를 창립하였다. 또한 개인들의 자원을 나누는 집합체인 마고자원동아리는 공동창립하였다.

Since 2013, Dr. Hwang has organized and led an annual program of Mago Pilgrimage to Korea participated by non-Korean international participants. Currently, the program is installed as a required course for Magoist Studies Certificate Program that Mago Academy offers. Mago Pilgrimage offers a venue for participants to experience, meet, and share with locals across languages and cultures.
