Female Rainbow Workshop: The Persephone Archetype
Time & Location
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 sixth of its series, we start by reading and reflecting upon the myth of Persephone. The goddess Persephone has two aspects, as the Kore (daughter) and as the Queen of the Underworld. As the Kore she represents the young girl spirit who does not know "who she is" and is as yet unaware of her desires or strengths. As the Queen of the Underworld, she "guides the living who visit the underworld" and claims for herself what she wants. In our circle we delve into the introspective qualities of this archetype to open your heart to the numinous, sacred and nontangible experience of listening to your inner wisdom that guide your soul.
We work in dyads, following guided embodied explorations that will help you experience being the leader and the follower and cultivate your receptivity. From this state of openness, 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 Persephone. 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 recognize the commitments you need to make to grow beyond the Kore and become the Queen of your own decisions that guide your soul.

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.
