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.
