About The Event
Women have traits that are multifaceted, strong, vulnerable, and colorful, just like the rainbow of qualities we can find in the archetypes of the Greek Goddesses. Join this all-women workshop to explore together and celebrate the spectrum of our female identity.
The archetypes, just as the inner archetypes of the Greek goddesses, are powerful inner patterns, forces within that influence what we do and how we feel and can reveal intimate truths about ourselves. When we are able to understand them, we gain powerful insights that provide the key to self-knowledge and wholeness.
What we do:
In this Female Rainbow Workshop, the fourth of its series, we start by reading and reflecting upon the myth of Hera. Hera, as the Goddess of Marriage and Commitment Maker, was revered and reviled, honored and humiliated. She, more than any other goddess, has markedly positive and negative attributes as a result of her intense feelings. The same is true for the Hera archetype, an intensely powerful force for joy or pain in a woman's personality. In our circle we delve into the relationship-oriented qualities of this archetype to deepen our capacity to bond, to be loyal and faithful, to endure and go through difficulties with a partner.
We work individually, following a guided exercise that will help you explore all your feelings around a commitment of your choice. From this state of emotional awareness, we move on to using playfully a variety of art materials, including drawing, creating with clay and collage. Through this personal exploration, each participant deepens their connection to the qualities of Hera. Lastly, we use Authentic Movement, creating a safe, non-judgmental space where you are free to move and listen to your body’s wisdom. This way you open yourself to receiving insights that can encourage you to grow beyond the role of wife/partner and transform rage, jealousy and pain from troubled relationships into creative work.
Please bring: Comfortable clothes that you can easily move. Your open presence and beginner’s mind as this workshop is mainly experiential. Movement explorations are adaptable to all physical abilities and conditions. Quality art materials will be provided. Participants are welcome to buy the book of Jean Shinoda Bolen “Goddesses in Every Woman”, but it is not required for the workshop.
Structure: Group is intimate with a maximum of 16 participants.

Each workshop is independent. However, participating in the whole series will help you better understand which goddess is more active within, which you may need to cultivate, which to overcome, and how to tap the power of these enduring archetypes to become a better “heroine” in your own life story.
