The Fecundity of Zion and Spiritual Fulfillment

The ideal, fulfilled Daughter Zion of biblical Hebrew poetry exudes traits of fecundity and effortless bounty. These traits reveal Zion to be a thriving Garden of Eden, a preternatural habitat of blessing, a boon to human reverence, mutuality, and intimacy. Zion's effortless bounty fosters a transformative spirituality of reverence, but the internal dynamics of this process are less than fully obvious. In this presentation I explore such inner workings and attempt an explication. I plan to engage the thought of Carleen Mandolfo and her new book, Daughter Zion Talks Back to the Prophets.
