About the Event
Spinning Dreams into Reality: Re-Weaving your World at Midlife
This gathering will feature an exploration of the goddess Athena, The Three Fates, and Penelope, whose weaving and unweaving strengthened her sovereignty through years of turmoil.
Though Athena is a goddess of war, she is also a goddess of wisdom and hand-crafts that include spinning and weaving.
In Greek myth, even the mighty Zeus had to bow to the power of The Three Fates, named the Moirai. These three women spun, measured the length, and cut the thread of each life.
Penelope was left behind, as a single mother, to rule Ithaca when Odysseus left for the Trojan War. For twenty years she ran the kingdom, weaving by day and unweaving by night, to maintain her sovereignty and freedom.
We'll be cracking open the metaphors and myths of spinning and weaving to see what light they might shed on our lives. We'll discover why spinning and weaving are acts of transformation and how we can harness that power to re-weave our world at midlife.
As spring approaches, it's time to begin to spin our winter dreamtime into a new reality. I hope to see you in the Village!
The 2021 Village is here! This year each monthly gathering will explore a different goddess from world mythology. Together we’ll discover how these ancient mythologies offer new perspectives on issues that concern Regent women today. As Regent Women—aged 45-70— we’re living in the most powerful stage of our lives. In these gatherings, the company of women, we support each other and offer insights into making the most of our Regent years.
What can we learn from the time we are living through? Where is our power, and how should we wield it? Join me to explore the ancient hopeful truths and power that lives within the myths of the universal experience of being a woman.
Dr. A. is a cultural mythologist and women's coach. Join her in weekly inspirational conversations, held online, about the big picture of being a woman in these times.
In each conversation, as women have done for millennia, we will gather at the well (ours will be virtual) to support each other and to find wisdom, insight, and clarity in uncertain times.
Enter the circle and:
- Experience new ways of understanding what we are going through today, from the wisdom in ancient myths and stories.
- Explore the legacy of wisdom from the profound universal experiences of being women.
- Broaden and deepen our thinking about our outer and inner worlds.
- Create a deeper connection to ourselves and to each other.
These weeks of social distancing and unrest can create more than stress and worry. We can emerge from this uncertain time with a story to tell about ourselves and our world. We can create a new vision for our lives, our families, our communities, and our world.
