“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.”

  • Wow! what a find…!
    The lyrics in this song ring so so so true…they hit the core… It resonated with my heart…Thank you David H and Jenny for adding it to the collection…

  • I was wondering where the artist would have gotten the idea about death and rebirth in connection with Inanna. I did a bit of searching and read briefly (although it needs to be explored further) that Inanna features in some myths involving a descent to the underworld and then a rebirth. Features of the myth were also reminiscent of the Greek story of Persephone.

    I also find it fascinating how the iconography of Inanna is so similar to that of Durga/Kali in India.

  • Lovely song, like an invocation of and worship to the warrior goddess. It’s a beautiful blend of the gentleness and strength of the divine mother.

  • Interesting the artist chose these lyrics, very nice and fitting to the events of the spring equinox in my opinion.

    Inanna. It’s interesting to consider how names for mother goddesses of ancient cultures were probably used so much and for thousands of years by people. Yet those sacred names, or their use, has become lost as did the cultures that used them.

    But such a name can still have a lot of timeless power and meaning to it if we use it. Though the important thing of course is for us to individually tap into and connect to the force behind the sacred name.
