Myth--

vital, creative, alive.

 

 

 

 

The stories we choose to tell and how we tell them influence us deeply. Joseph Campbell famously uncovered cyclical patterns within world mythology and literary fiction—the poetic, profound, and psychological “Hero’s” Journey. New feminist revisionings expand Campbell’s masculinist theories to include the archetypal heroine and offer more inclusive and vital patterns, a more dynamic S/Hero’s Journey. 

Now the rise and return of "the feminine" as a psychological, sociological, and spiritual trend is reverberating across the Earth. Responding to ecological, social, and personal crises left from millenia of patriarchal trauma, women and men are embodying a global movement of activism, scholarship, and commitment to healing through feminine wisdom. With the healing of the wounded masculine comes the forging of renewed partnership models, both internally and culturally. This is epic regenerative movement--a type of pilgrimage of our personal souls, and transformative for the collective.

Getting curious about what the feminine is--both within us and in the world at large--allows us to deepen our own S/Hero's Journey. On the path a variety of challenges and opportunities arise; from personal and collective grief to constructing something new from shattered shards, being able to develop regenerative tools is essential.

Dedicated to the rising and returning feminine through her career in academia, public workshops, and private coaching--as well as her own experiences with the S/Hero's Journey--April has developed tricks and trim tabs for recognizing potent blocks on the path, harvesting their mythic content, and accelerating the regenerative component of the quest. 

Learn to navigate the mysterious and fertile mythological rhythms of life. Understand how imaginal stories drive our psyches, communities, and the world at large. Delve into the Underworld portion of your journey with tricks and wisdom from the renewing realms of alchemy, feminist post-Jungian psychology, world literature + film, gender studies, and spiritual pilgrimage. 

Sign up for the online master class Calling All S/Heroes: The Quest for Regeneration, order a Personal Mythology reading, or work with April privately. Learn how your creativity is your greatest companion on the S/Hero's Journey. 

Heed the call to adventure. Delve into your own mystery.

The quest is beaconing.


MYTHOLOGY, in other words, is psychology
misread as biography, history, and cosmology.

The loss and exile of the feminine has tremendously impacted the foundation of Western cultures. This course explores the quest for regenerative pilgrimage toward sovereign, effective participation in Life through the incorporation of feminine wisdom. Cinematic and literary representations of female power have shifted dramatically, providing girls and women—as well as boys and men—more dynamic and authentic reflections of vital female presence, power, and wisdom. Moreover, fresh interpretations of women's classic literature help excavate long-buried roadmaps offered by our foremothers. Beyond the constructed triad of maiden, mother, crone, other archetypes have been missing from an incomplete model of the feminine in modern cultures.

This workshop is for anyone longing for the adventure and discovery—or deepening—of your own personal myth. Central to this exploration is recognizing and attending the exiled and degraded archetypal feminine of Western cultures; her loss has left a corrupt model where partnership was replaced with a legacy of incestuous and sacrificial shaming and violence, and an incomplete, wounded masculine longing for wholeness. Utilizing archaeomythology, gender studies, depth psychology, religious studies, literary fiction, and film, we can track how the exilic feminine--embodied, divine, and wise--returns bearing regenerative gifts.

By exploring both the internal, alchemical marriage of the feminine and masculine energies and wisdoms—in Jungian terms, personal individuation—and the external collective unconscious and partnership models for community and the environment, this advanced workshop weaves practical scholarship with your embodied, lived experience. Through the psychological acts of reading and writing via creative exercises and dialogue, this course calls you forward on your personal quest for regeneration and toward co-creative acts of community building.

Personal Mythology Analysis

April's mythological reading and breakdown was so enriching. She really listened to my interpretations of experiences and asked lots of questions, helping me to process the information I was expressing. Using her charts simplified and clarified aspects of myself and my story. I feel more confident, aware, and in touch with myself moving forward after working with her. Using her expertise in mythology, astrology, tarot, and energy, I have been able to integrate different aspects of myself, moving closer and closer to more understanding and acceptance. I've gotten more out of my sessions with April than I have with other forms of “therapy.”

Academic

 

April has been one of the greatest mentors of my life. It is with her that I learned how to speak, the power of words, what strength showers are, and to be thankful for everything--including bills. I wish all of humanity could have the privilege of having classes taught by her (I had many--from Women's History to Gender + the Environment) or the one-on-one coaching and group work that I was blessed to be a part of with her. The world would be a more compassionate place.

Workshops

I highly recommend April's classes to anyone on the path of personal transformation and spiritual journey. Her classes balance beautifully the intellectual and the visceral, the academic and the feeling, the cerebral and the healing. She caters to diverse understandings and cares deeply about creating an experience from which all participants can derive value. She goes out of her way to make sure people get what they need and want from her classes, regardless of age, experience, or level of education. Her curriculum is well-structured to hold flexibility for themes that emerge from the lives and experiences of class participants. Her knowledge of mythology and psychology is rooted and integrated in a knowledge of self that couldn't be more apparent. Her ability to walk with others on their journeys through learning and healing comes so obviously from her ability to walk through on her own.
