In 2009, I launched my witch-burnings novel The Serpent’s Tale with a talk at The Glastonbury Goddess Conference, exploring the Harvest Myth of Demeter and Persephone as a metaphor for the Soul’s descent into the darkness of wounding and rebirth into the light of wisdom.
As one of the most powerful embodiments of our Moon Maiden archetype in Goddess Mythology, Persephone holds the key to unlock the gates to our empowerment through the healing of our Maiden Self.
In this workshop, we will journey with Persephone through guided meditation and creative expression to meet our Moon Maiden in the Underworld. There we will invite the Wise Crone Hecate, lady-in-waiting to Persephone, to help us to heal the Maiden wounds that are preventing us from standing fully in our power at this time.
Transformed through the fires of the Underworld, we will rise again like the Phoenix to be reunited with Persephone’s Harvest Mother Demeter, the embodiment of our own Mother archetype – the empowered, abundant Creatrix of Lammas.
