Online Series: Reimagining Demeter: Moving the Mother Archetype Forward in Art and Life

June 7 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am


4 Wednesdays, June 7, 15, 21, 28 | 9am-10:45am PT | $80 for the series

Myths are timeless and so is our soul. The Greek goddess Demeter is an archetypal mother figure that must be reimagined if we are to embody her cyclic wisdom, reclaim her courage, and harness her healing energies. Demeter’s journey is multifaceted: from bliss to loss, from grief to despair, from contemptment to anger, and from victimhood to empowerment. Demeter shows us the way back home to ourselves after a loss, when at a crossroads in our life, and while facing an unexpected event. As Demeter goes in search of her daughter she sets in motion the process of searching for the parts of herself that she has neglected. Demeter’s myth sheds light into a deep lesson from grief and victimhood: radical mothering begins with oneself.

In this 4-week journey participants will be guided to identify their own individual resonances with and connections to the story of Demeter utilizing the methodology of the Tamalpa Life/Art Process: somatic movement, movement metaphors, guided imagery, and expressive arts, and Life/Art dialogues.
No previous art experience is necessary.
