Every Spring, in the mythic cycle of the Goddess, the maiden goddess Persephone returns from the underworld to reunite with her mother, Demeter. Unlike the Greek re-telling, the pre-Hellenic, pre-patriarchal version of this classic story is free of abduction and violence.  Beginning with this myth, we will examine ways that living in a patriarchal society influences mother/daughter relationships. We'll use our insights to reweave and reinterpret our experiences. Then, with ritual taking us beyond intellectual understanding, we'll discover our amazing capacity to heal the past and release ourselves from the constraints of our social legacy. We can begin living with greater authenticity and freedom as daughters... and, for some, daughters who have in turn become mothers.


With focus on our relationship with our mothers (even if your mother is deceased), or our relationship with our own daughter(s), you will learn how to design and facilitate a personal ritual for yourself through a unique guided intuitive process. The ritual you create for yourself will be enacted at a time of your choosing outside of the workshop space. This ritual-making process teaches you how to effortlessly bring forward intuitive information to design a transformational ritual experience authentically sourced from yourself. Learning how to meet your own needs for personal rituals become beautiful, powerful, and healing experiences in self-intimacy.
