Dark Moon Rising Workshop

A journey using plant allies to explore feminine archetypes through ceremony, meditation, song and art

Led by Kathryn Kloos and Ashlie Hempstead

November 17th, 2018 / 2pm–5pm

One familiar version of the story of Persephone is that she was a captive of the Underworld, but this is not the original myth. The story of Persephone, and her mother Demeter, is a revered story of feminine strength and rule over the Underworld. 

In this ceremonial space:

  • Re-learn the Pre-Hellensitic myth that continues to live inside of us and wants to be remembered and retold. 

  • Identify what inside of us needs tending to during the darkness of winter.

  • Reclaim our personal power by shedding what is no longer serving us.

  • Find nourishment within the darkness. 

  • Give voice to our stories which need to be re-written.

We will use the wisdom and teachings of plant medicines to find the stillness of winter inside us and to re-vitalize our power for spring. The first plant we will use will be Black Cohosh. Ruled by Pluto, Black Cohosh has the ability to take us into deep, dark places where the stillness abides.

The second plant we will use will be Aralia, ruled by the Moon, who shows us how to be unwavering in our feminine strength.
Astrologically we are supported in the month of November, which is the time of Scorpio and the time of death, re-birth and deep self-exploration.

Each woman is invited to share story and experience within dedicated circle time, while your two guides, Dr. Kathryn Kloos and Dr. Ashlie Hempstead, will bathe you in song, guided meditation and craniosacral support.
Blankets, pillows, light snacks and tea are provided.

This is part 1 of a 2-part series. Part 2 will be in December, and will focus on "Embracing the Light in the Winter Sun".
