Window to the Soul workshops: SoulCollage & Goddess guidance
Delve deeper into your soul and discover guidance from the Goddesses with these March workshops at Windows to the Soul Art Studios.
Introduction to SoulCollage: Friday March 15, 1-4 pm. Mixed media artist Patricia Mahan leads participants on a journey to ‘discover your wisdom, change your world’ by creating a personal deck of collaged cards which represent different aspects of your personality, community, and archetypal energies. Cards may then be ‘consulted’ for help in answering your life’s questions. (Class 300 pesos.)
Delving Deeper Friday, March 22nd, 1pm-5pm. Designed for those who have taken the introductory class or have previous experience in the SoulCollage process; in this half-day workshop participants will delve deeper into the experience, learning more about how to distinguish the different “suits” or energies of the cards. Students will make new cards and learn to do a “reading” as a group. Bring any cards you have previously made, all other materials included including colored backings and adhesive for sorting the cards. (Workshop 400 pesos.)
Goddess as Inspiration and Guide: Friday, March 29th, 1-5 pm. Mary Butler, MA, storyteller, psychotherapist, and guest teacher teaches how Greek Goddesses Demeter, Persephone and Medusa can serve as guides and inspiration to wisdom in midlife and beyond. Medusa is a model for taking on a negative label, which men and women do in aging, whereas Demeter changes through the myth from mother to crone. Many ancient cultures allowed older women much more freedom from social restrictions. They were honored as wise women and entrusted with the education and testing of the young. In current times it is hard to imagine the roles we can play at the third stage of life. The models the Goddesses provide will help to clarify our purpose.
Collaging, journaling, and interactive discussion about life roles and stages, freedoms from social restrictions and deepening into the imagination with these ancient Mediterranean archetypal goddess energies—for men and women! (Workshop 400 pesos. Bring a journal; snacks and tea and all other materials included.)
