The human race has been using story to reflect the powerful drives of what it is to be a human being for millennia. The universal themes expressed in these narratives offer some of the most powerful templates for self-reflection, and healing. Let’s take a few of these stories, and go on a deep dive.
We are going to use a myth that you are probably familiar with – Persephone and Demeter, a fairy tale I know you know – Hansel and Gretel, and a third myth from the north – Selke, the story of a creature who gives up her natural sealskin, to round out our dive.
- Hansel and Gretel will help us address family wounds, abandonment issues, and the challenges with disowning our power to heal and transform.
- Persephone’s journey with both her mother Demeter and Hades from the Underworld will offer up all sorts of nuggets about sexuality, passion, and the challenges of finding balance in a complex world.
- The beautiful myth of the seal woman Selke, who gives up her skin for human love, will allow us to explore all the challenges of authenticity, self-sovereignty, and how we all sell our own souls to keep love and approval.
Join me for a soulful dive; we will integrate what is ready to be owned and incorporated into your ever-expanding sense of Self, and we will drop the wounds that are ready to be transformed at this time.
