Although a perennial Golden Chain (Aurea Catena) of esoteric knowledge stretching back into antiquity has received much attention from Anton Kirchweger, Wolfgang Goethe, and CG Jung, a subtler, less literal, and more lunar Silver Tradition (Argentum Catena) linking Near East and West runs from ancient shamanic practice and art forward into Gnosticism, Alchemy, and Earth-honoring ecopsychologies. This presentation will describe the Silver Tradition and the goddesses like Sophia who have guided its reincarnations into the present, where it can help us return to world and cosmos with a sense of reenchantment, appreciation, and love.
