Author, podcaster, and public speaker Stephanie Georgieff will present her research on The Black Madonna. Building on the thesis of Rudolf Steiner “Art is the creation of organs through which the gods are able to speak to humanity,” Georgieff weaves a broad tapestry between art, history, religion, and anthroposophical christology to decipher what exactly the gods are saying to humanity through these enigmatic images of the Virgin Mary.
After nearly thirty years as a practicing Naturopath and Acupuncturist, Stephanie Georgieff has chosen to transform her healing vocation into writing and lecturing on various aspects of Christian Spirituality and its relationship to emotional and physical health. She has lectured throughout Europe and North America on various subjects, but her passion is on the Middle Ages and the Divine Feminine. Georgieff hosts a podcast “The Black Madonna Speaks,” writes for numerous publications and has her own blog “The Heart of the Black Madonna.” The Black Madonna, Mysterious Soul Companion is the first in a series of books examining how the Black Madonna as an art form offers healing insights to our collective past and present. These volumes also explore the invitation humanity has from the spiritual world to co-create a healthy and peaceful future.
