- Awake -
- Bridging stories -
Stories and myths are out of time and out of place. They have the ability to touch you today in the same way they touched your ancestors 2oo years ago: they hold layers of truth, mirrors for different facets of who you are, and a connection to the Living World (nature, spirit, magic).
The story of The Sleeping Beauty has many layers that are very relevant for us today - both on an individual and on a collective point of view. To explore a story in this way is to first listen to what wants to touch you, it is an exercise of letting your imagination be free and letting the symbols, archetypes and wisdom of the story unfolds in ways you comprehend deeply.
We will work with somatic awareness, journey to spiritual realms, ancestral healing, and discussion to support our learning. When exploring a myth or story, we must learn the skill of not stripping it bare from its magic, and rather than scrutinizing it, let the story flourish in our own imagination and listen to what it has to offer, both collectively and individually.
The tale, then, becomes a vessel for intimate and deep inner travels.
This is an experiential workshop, we will walk with this medicinal story and bridge it to our personal mythology, mending and reconnecting threads that are woven into each of us.
What we'll do
We will immerse ourselves in the story the Sleeping Beauty and explore the following themes:
- Times of initiation
- The forgotten one(s)
- Prophecy, spells and contracts
- Working with protection
- The medicine of being asleep
- The medicine of being awake
All these threads are woven through our past, our present and our future, they each carry inquiries and insights that are relevant for us right now - personally and collectively.
