The Persephone Myth: Mythological Healing Through Psycho-Spiritual Death & Rebirth
August 21 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm$25.00
“God’s presence is there in front of me, a fire on the left,
a lovely stream on the right.
One group walks toward the fire, into the fire, another
toward the sweet flowing water.
No one knows which are blessed and which not.
Whoever walks into the fire appears suddenly in the stream.
A head goes under on the water surface, that head
pokes out of the fire.
Most people guard against going into the fire,
and so end up in it.”
Persephone is both the Greek goddess of flowers and springtime AND Queen of the Underworld – what a beautiful dichotomy! The Persephone myth is a powerful analogy for what happens when we walk through the fire of our pain and emerge on the other side, newly reborn. In this class I will share the Persephone myth and explain how we can apply its affirming lessons to our own lives.
