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 fairy tale and a myth that you are probably familiar with. Little Red Riding Hood is our fairy tale, and while you probably know the story of Perseus and how he conquered Medusa, we will use that myth, but from both sides of the story.
- Little Red addresses core values such as independence and curiosity, and the origins of passion and sexuality. How we moved into and through puberty and adolescence is key to self-
actualization, and Red helps us integrate our darker qualities as we move toward integration.
- Medusa is a staple in shadow work, where we understand the power of looking into the mirror. But if we flip it, the rape of Medusa offers an opportunity to reflect on what it is to generate powerful self-sovereignty in the face of a patriarchal society that diminishes women.
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.
