About The Event

Join us to explore and celebrate the diverse aspects of our female identity that are multifaceted, strong, vulnerable, and colorful, just like the rainbow of qualities we can find in the archetypes of the Greek Goddesses. 

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.

In this Female Rainbow Workshop, the first of its series, we start by reading and reflecting upon the myth of Hestia. Hestia is the goddess of the fire burning on a round hearth. She was felt to be present in the living flame at the center of the home, temple, and city. She made all places holy when she was there, and she provided the sanctuary where people bonded together. In our circle, we invite her independent, self-sufficient qualities of warmth, sacredness, and connection to the inner fire every woman has to provide herself with a sense of intactness and wholeness.

We work in dyads, following a guided exploration that will help us turn our focus inward and enter into a meditative state. From this state of closeness to ourselves 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 Hestia. Lastly, we use Authentic Movement, creating a safe, non-judgemental space where we are free to move and listen to our body’s wisdom. This way we open ourselves to receiving insights that can encourage us to move in our everyday lives while being more connected to our inner wisdom and intuition and focused on what is personally meaningful.

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.

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.      

Responsibility statement:  While we will be using practices for self-exploration this workshop is not a psychotherapy group or a replacement for working directly with a healthcare practitioner. A liability form will be signed at the day of the event.
