In a few short weeks, I’ll be facilitating a workshop for women who want to continue exploring their spiritual journey in the context of woman-honoring cultures throughout history. We’ll travel to various countries across several continents, studying matriarchal societies & the concept of the divine feminine. I say “continue exploring” because many of these women have taken my previous workshops & want to continue their exploration in the company of other intelligent, warm, funny, spiritual women ranging from their teens to their seventies!
Leading this workshop is a bit like being a cruise ship captain, planning activities & excursions so each passenger can find the trip worthwhile & fun along the way. Instead of shuffleboard & a swimming pool, I’m providing religion, the arts, politics, & history.
What does one pack for a spiritual journey? Chants/songs, rituals, study, writings, personal experience, meditation, drumming, artwork, storytelling, dance, visualization, & service to others are the items which make the journey worthwhile. Each participant will find that certain items resonate with her while others aren’t as important for the path she is traveling. It’s ok. Take what is needed & leave the rest.
My quick study of a jubilant African drummer in gouache & watercolor inspires me to create a body of artwork based on the spiritual items described above. Soon, I’ll share them with you. Blessings to you as you travel your own path.
