Description Abbey of Gethsemani. Another walk down a path discovered, coming upon the unknown, coming home. This is where she lives, the Holy Feminine, Sophia, Mary, Primordial Goddess of Life. Near the hermitage. She belongs to no one, and no religion, beyond separations. She is what is beneath and above, what flowers and withers. This place of vegetation and regeneration is hers to protect, as she does the baby cradled in her arms. When did she first come to be there? Before time.
