creative rituALS for women WITH ERIN STARDUST (1:30-2:30)
Together let’s build a foundation for personal regular ritual practice. Create yourself as an embodied woman with reason and will. Tell us your story from preconception through the present or what you hope for the future. In woman only space we are included automatically, not fighting for a place or for our voices to be heard. A woman’s path to wholeness is within herself and her consensual connection to all around her. We will be working with the elements in relation to the Egyptian notion of the creation of the universe and earth, air, fire and water. Looking to “the goddess as a therapeutic metaphor” we will strive to bring ourselves to the knowledge of our higher self. To purify, strengthen and develop the qualities and powers united with the divine within us. Seshat, the bird soul in the heart of every woman. In her earthly form she writes the life of all things on the Tree of Life, bringing knowledge, the Mistress of Magic. You may take what you learn from our practice here and work with any goddess or symbology that speaks to you in your personal rituals. Please bring your favorite treat or non alcoholic drink to share amongst the group as we share in feminine communion. note: this workshop is open to female-identified persons.
