Help with pronunciation

#1 Postby Helen_Davis » Wed Aug 01, 2012 5:44 am

Dear friends,

Even though I have studied Appendix II of 'Gnosis of the Cosmic Christ', I'm still not sure of the pronunciation of many of the Divine Names - especially Yahweh. (It may be that I don't understand the descriptions of the sounds because I'm English, not American....!) Also, on pages 64 and 363 there are different pronunciations for Eheieh, which I think might be to do with context? I would be grateful for any help.

Shalom

Helen

Greetings!
This is a difficult question to answer via email or on forums. As you've pointed out it's just not the same to see it, but you need to hear it.

One possibility is there are weekly chats - some via skype. There is a US based skype on Sunday night at 7 PM CST and then a European based skype. The European skype is led by Jonas and Martina (see the study group pages for their info: http://www.sophian.org/study_groups.html).
The US skype info is led by Elder Gideon. You can get information on this skype session at: http://www.sophian.org/chat_skype.html

I have personally not been able to learn pronunciation without actually hearing someone say the words. You can get approximations through the written page, but audio is the best.

Something else that just came to mind is that there are recorded Shabbat Discourses on the main page. You will hear some divine names in those: http://www.sophian.org/index.html.

Shalom, Yonah
