Sharon Blackie: The Mythic Imagination: Unlocking the Magic of the Everyday

Sharon Blackie: Mythic Imagination

During this workshop, award-winning writer, psychologist, and mythologist Dr. Sharon Blackie will guide participants through an exploration of the many ways in which myth and fairy tales can inform our journeys through life. We’ll delve deeply into beautiful old stories, come to understand the mythic patterns which underpin our lives, and learn how to work with the archetypal characters, places, and situations which influence the choices we make. (For women only.)
Myths and fairy tales are so much more than stories: they’re living principles, deeply enmeshed in our lives and the life of this beautiful, animate Earth. And in the uncertain times we live in, we need their wild wisdom more than ever. They illuminate who we are, who we might become, and help us discover the unique gift that each of us brings to the unceasing becoming of the world. 

During this workshop, we’ll explore the many ways in which myth and fairy tales can inform our journeys through life. We’ll delve deeply into beautiful old stories, come to understand the mythic patterns which underpin our lives, and learn how to work with the archetypal characters, places, and situations which influence the choices we make. Sharon will act as your guide through the enchanted forest of your imagination, offering dreamwork, expressive art exercises, and writing meditations to help you develop and deepen your own mythic imagination.

Please Note: This workshop is for women only.
