We are Gift of Tiamat – Goddess Mother supernova. Out of her stardust we are born. Carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, sulphur, phosphorus and trace elements. We are Gift of Tiamat – out of her stardust we are born[i].
Tiamat (which means Goddess Mother) is the name that Brian Swimme and Thomas Berry gave to the ancestral star out of whom our Sun and Her planets were born. All the complex elements that are now within our bodies and through Earth were created by this grandmother supernova. They named Her ‘Tiamat’ in their book, The Universe Story. She is praised and remembered by that name in traditional PaGaian Winter Solstice ceremony when the ceremonial fire is lit.
Winter Solstice is the Season for remembering our Cosmic lineage, our Origins.
We are Gift of Tiamat – out of her stardust we are born.
Some ceremonial rites are offered here: Winter Solstice, Chapter 7, PaGaian Cosmology.
