The Witch is the ultimate feminist icon because she is a fully rounded

symbol of oppression & liberation. ~ Pam Grossman

 

 

 

A few months ago the word - WITCH landed in my awareness. I reflected on her paradoxical, tragic, exulted story/associations, my own relationship with WITCH, and my identification with this complex archetype.

 

Decades back I claimed and named myself WITCH. A powerful and secret act.

Somewhere in my quest to deepen into WITCH came across a book for solo practitioners and that really landed for me. Since then and many rituals, ceremonies, magical feasts & experiences later I am grateful for these empowered, spelled out & in experiences which have guided me through many dark nights of the soul, and into new seasons of my life aligning with both inner and ancient wisdom for healing & alchemy!

 

What myriad meanings/feelings/memories does the word WITCH conjure up in you? 

 

 

These musings led to another idea ...a course exploring the past, present and future of WITCH. Honoring both her story and ours, getting intentional about holding space & offering experiences for others to transform and heal especially as we move into a new year and new more unifying stories & actions to better serve our planet, Earth and all human and more than humans dwelling here. 

Winter WITCH begins on the first new moon of the year and completes on the 2nd new moon. When there are two new moons in a month, the 2nd is referred to as a Black Moon and this is a slightly rare occurrence, happening every 33ish months or so. Definitely an auspicious way into 2022.

 

As with many courses I offer, it's a 'choose your own adventure' experience, meaning participate, share, show up in whatever way works for you. The container is solid, you will be held in all the ways you might choose to work with this material. There's space for 13 women identifying peoples.

 

OVERVIEW

 

Acknowledging women; human and more than human who were identified, silenced and/or exalted as witches.  

 

Explore the Sumerian myth of Ereshkigal, Queen of the Underworld & Inanna, Queen of Heaven. 

 

Together in community we shall experience; a descent into deeper places, tapping IN (the body) supported with meditation & embodiment practices, an ascent offering clarity, something hopeful and a shifting our attention outward into our lives, communities and the new year. 

 

Align with the January moon cycle - dreaming, visioning and intention setting for the new year to come. 

 

We will also be working with the medicine of silence, meditation and embodiment practices that can carry us throughout the year.
