Reslience and revelation in catastrophic times
Saturday November 25, 2023
15.00 – 19.00 UK time
An online gathering in the Bone Cave
This gathering will be anchored around a new and unique visioning of Persephone’s cyclical descent to the Underworld and reemergence into the light. We’ll walk alongside Persephone for a while; we’ll sing over the bones of her story to reveal its wisdom and allow it to work its magic on us.
- What kind of soul journey is required of us at a time when the world around us – social, political, environmental – is in crisis? What happens to us when we ‘fall out of myth’?
- How can we hold ourselves together during these long, dark nights of the soul? How can we express our grief, without allowing it to paralyse us?
- How can we prepare ourselves for a journey through dark times, and understand the lessons of the Underworld?
- How can we thrive and transform in this place of mystery and uncertainty?
- And, ultimately, how can we be reborn – how can we shapeshift into a form that enables us to bring back our own unique song as a healing gift for an ailing Earth?
This deep immersion into the miracles of descent and reemergence will be focused around the following topics:
- The Underworld Journey – the myth of Persephone
- The Time Between Stories – taking stock
- The Dark Night of the Soul – exploring grief, depression, weariness, burnout
- The Gifts of the Dark – creative regeneration; exploring the mystery
- Death and Rebirth – the cycles of life; ritual and ceremony
- The Return of the Light – navigating the ascent; imagining the year ahead
In this gathering, we’ll prepare both for our descent into the long, dark half of the year, and our ultimate emergence into the light.
