Archetypal Playground

This is where we get to explore these different faces of human nature and see how much of a mirror they hold up.

Sometimes it’s a single call, sometimes a short class. Often they’re free, sometimes they have a small cost.

I do them because they’re fun, and because every time I start talking about this stuff people ask me for more. 🙂

To sign up to find out about these calls, get the call-in deets, and get the recordings after (AND ONLY THIS – I will not use this list for anything else, or add your name to any other list) please click here.

The Wounded Healer And The Unhealable Wound

Tue Sep 25

1:30-3:00pm PDT

FREE

Chiron is an important figure in Greek myth, and his name was chosen for the first identified asteroid in the Asteroid Belt in our solar system.

Since then, this body has been tracked and you will most often hear it talked about as the archetypal image of the Wounded Healer. This is a figure we all hear a lot about.

However, Chiron’s story carries a stranger and far more difficult emphasis when we look deeper – the Unhealable Wound.

I will talk more about this distinctly uncomfortable idea, and what it might mean for us to understand better. There will be lots of time for questions so please bring them!

 

LOVE IN THE UNDERWORLD

5 weeks – Oct 5 to Nov 2

Fridays, 1-2:30pm Pacific

$88

Most of us think we know what Love is, or at least what we want it to be.

We know what our cultures and families and friends teach us about Love.

Inevitably, though, at some point in life, Love takes us into the Underworld.

And tragically, no one really tells us anything about THAT.

We don’t know what to do when Love and Death collide – and as hard as it is to say, Death of the body is the easier Death.

I want to look at what happens when Love is transformed by Death in other ways – death of trust, of identity, of certainty, of innocence. I want to look at what happens when Love is not safe. I want to look at who we become – and what we have to give up – when we come face to face with this.

We’ll be using the mythic structure of two figures who know this Descent well – Inanna and Persephone. Their stories will illuminate that darkness for us, and share their alchemical wisdom with us.

This one’s going to be POTENT, loves. It will change you. But if you need this medicine, it’s mine to give. This is my world.

Please know that you are ready for this, or if you aren’t sure, zip over to my contact form and let’s talk. If you hear the call, though, go into the cave mouth and take a torch off the wall…..
