The Mother and Father Archetypes: healing our mother and father wounds and re-connecting to Mother Earth and Father Sun.
Dates: Ran in 2014. To be repeated at some point in the future. Please email me if you are interested.
Venue: to be confirmed.
A series of 4 workshops exploring how to use shamanic work to heal mother-wounds and father-wounds, both in terms of being a child growing up, and/or in terms of being a parent. As well as looking at healing any wounds we may have with our actual parents and/or children, we will go deeper and explore how to heal and connect with healthy Mother and Father as powerful archetypal energies. Going deeper still, we will look at how this can lead us to a more profound connection with Mother Earth and Father Sun. This in turn strengthens our healing connection with both the shamanic lowerword and upperworlds.
Our initial welcome to the earth is in the womb, and from our biological mother. Through a healthy, loving and welcoming relationship with mother, we learn to feel safe in the world, and come to know that Mother Earth herself loves us and provides for us. However if our relationship with our mother is somehow wounded, then this wound carries through to our relationship with the Mother principle/archetype, and so to our relationship with Mother Earth herself. Similarly if there are wounds in our relationship with our father, this ripples through to our relationship with Father as an archetypal energy, and so to our relationship with Father Sun. Working on healing our parental wounds, as well as being helpful to us psychologically (on a mental-emotional level), has a profound effect on our shamanic work, in terms of strengthening and deepening our connection with the lower and upper worlds.
The first two weekends (May 31+June 1, and July 5+6) will focus on mother issues, Mother Earth and the lowerworld. The August weekends will focus on father issues, Father Sun and the upperworld.
