I studied mythology, depth psychology, and education at Pacifica Graduate Institute, and graduated in 2007 with a Master's degree in Humanities. At the time, I couldn't articulate exactly why I chose to pursue that specific area of study. Since then, spirit has shown me all the ways it applies to my life, my community, and our world.
This workshop provides an opportunity to meet your Hero Ally, get in touch with your own True Self, and familiarize yourself with some of the primary archetypes we live by. We will include a mix of discussion, journaling, guided imagery, play, ritual, collage, shamanic journey, and self-discovery.
This workshop will use works by Joseph Campbell, Hyemeyohsts Storm, and Carol S. Pearson, among others, to explore our own personal myths and archetypes. I will blend in exercises based in core shamanism and the arts to enhance our learning. Weaving imagination, storytelling, shamanic tools, depth psychology, and mythology, we will explore our own personal human-ness with help from the Archetypes, the Elements, and the Nature Spirits.
We will be working through the book titled: Awakening the Heroes Within: Twelve Archetypes to Help Us Find Ourselves and Transform our World, Carol S. Pearson
