“In the beginning was Sophia,
and Sophia was with God, united with the Logos.
Sophia was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by the Logos and Sophia,
and nothing that was made
was made without the Logos and Sophia.
Sophia is Wisdom,
And Wisdom is the Light of creation,
And the Light shines in the heavens,
And the Angels radiate it forth.”

Estelle Isaacson is a contemporary seer who is gifted with a remarkable ability to perceive new streams of revelation. Dr. Robert Powell is a spiritual researcher who, in this concise work—as in many other books—brings the results of his research investigations. Both authors have been blessed in an extraordinary way by virtue of accessing the realm in which Sophia is presently found.

In Part 1 of The Mystery of Sophia, a series of fourteen visions with which Estelle Isaacson was graced lead the reader into a direct and immediate connection with the mystery of Sophia in our time. In the four chapters of Part 2, Robert Powell opens up the cosmic dimension of Sophia and her path of descent toward humanity and the Earth as the bearer of a new spiritual culture—the Rose of the World, a culture founded on love and wisdom.

Karen Rivers, co-founder with Robert Powell of the Sophia Foundation, has also contributed a foreword to the book. And in the appendix, “Sources of Sophia” Robert Powell and Estelle Isaacson offer an overview of inspired literature for all those who wish to deepen their study of Sophia.


You of the whirling wings,
circling, encompassing energy of God:
you quicken the world in your clasp.
One wing soars in heaven,
one wing sweeps the earth,
and the third flies all around us.
Praise to Sophia!
Let all the earth praise her!
—Hildegard of Bingen
