“Song to Inanna” is a gentle, melodic, and meditative song by Lisa Thiel from her album Journey to the Goddess.
Inanna, to whom this song is dedicated, is a Mother Goddess figure from ancient Sumer. The song addresses her as an ancient “mother of the world” and as one who teaches to die, be reborn, and rise again — echoing the cyclical nature of creation1 and the way to enlightenment, as the Mother has power over life both physically and spiritually.2
In The Path of the Spiritual Sun it is mentioned that:
“The Mother is the giver of nature, the physical body, matter, and the subconscious, symbolized by the growing darkness following the summer solstice, which the consciousness enters into when joining the process of life. Her womb is the earth, and so even the underworld forms part of the learning she provides in the cycles of life and nature.”
