"SL – ‘So it is possible that the same is true for men ,phallus with the Divine Masculine? Same idea.’ I would have to say no, not with the same emphasis. In Alchemy, the sun goes to the head of a man, and the moon goes to her body.…"

"SL - Women overdo it with implants, but who am I to judge, that is what makes them feel beautiful. No, I would say that this is what makes them feel insecure because of how they wish to look and what the goddess believes they should be…"

SL commented on Gary Smith's blog post Minoan Spirituality and the Sacred Breast
"My comment was not inferring towards what society believes the preferences are , the image of the breast for both men and women. For men it is ideal to be flat or muscled and opposite for women. The idea in modern society both men and women is that…"

"SL - I find that it really makes no difference to me as to the size of a woman's bust. I'm not really a breast man, in that sense. However I have found that given time in a relationship with me whatever size they are will increase, as I…"

"At the end of the day it is not the woman's breasts that hold any power over men nor is it what defines a woman. Breasts are merely a opening part of the show if you are a breast man. Obviously it is the female genitalia that is the main…"

"Abuse comes in many forms. I never had any problems with feeding my children in public. I often see women doing it and to be frank i can't understand what the fuss is about. We just get on with it."

"I'm not saying it's demeaning, I'm saying there is more to it that you don't seem to want to see, to prove your point.  You're putting words in my mouth because I happen to disagree with your opinion.  I assume…"

"@Elspeth - Thank you for the clarification, which has been better defined since 1986, however this says nothing of the abuse breastfeeding women have received from the public. The 1986 act It stills applies to women going topless, which says a woman…"

Why I wish to join The Temple & how I found out about it...
I was looking for a holistic technique and cam across your site
About Myself & My Interests..
I like to meet like minded people, and find those interested in exploring the nature of God and the Goddess to develop and expand on their gifts. I'm a Modern Minoan Pagan, and I will sometimes use Idaean which I feel is closer to the name the Minoans would have used - I discovered the start of my path when I was drawn in my late teens in the mid eighties to Glastonbury, Somerset, UK, to research why the Minoan Labyrinth is on the Tor, and what the Labyrinth means. I also learned the true names of Mabon ap Modron, and what their connection is to the Labyrinth on the tor. I have since published my conclusions on my website in 2013, and added a number of new insights on some of the big questions in Minoan spirituality.
My Teachers & Influences, What was it about them that influenced me?
Geoffrey Ashe and his book The Avalonian Quest, which inspired me to understand the Cretan Labyrinth. Gavin Menzies for finally helping me to bring my research to a conclusion.
Authors and/or Books I appreciate
The Lost empire of Atlantis Gavin Menzies
The Witches' Way, Janet and Stewart Farrar

Minoan Spirituality and the Sacred Breast

Posted on November 30, 2018 at 12:30pm 24 Comments

I’m a Modern Minoan Pagan, a researcher of the Classical Labyrinth, and more recently on their culture and mythology. It is internationally recognized now that the Bronze Age people found on the Mediterranean island of Crete are called Minoans named after King Minos who wasn’t a king but an underworld judge. There has in fact been a total absence of…
