In this semester long seminar we will explore the themes of the Heroine's Quest through myth, art, film and music- an archetypal pattern that can illuminate our own personal journeys. We'll share in stories that will illuminate the perennial quest for wholeness, drawn from centuries of fairytales and folklore from Russia, the Celtic Isles, Arabia and China. Through guided journaling, collage and art making, Lectio Divina, Marion Woodman's somatic practices and small group discussions, we will discover our own inner depths while weaving together a rich circle of connection.
