Mother, Father, Lover: Healing Our Mother and Father Wounds and Our Relationship with the Masculine and Feminine Archetypes
Dates: Over 6 weekends, roughly 6 weeks apart. 2020 – Oct 31+Nov 1, Dec 12+13. 2021 – Feb 6+7, March 20+21, May 8+9, June 19+20.
A series of 6 weekend workshops exploring how to use shamanic work to heal mother, father and lover wounds.
Our initial welcome to the earth is from our biological mother. Through a loving and welcoming mother we can learn to feel safe in the world and come to know that Mother Earth herself loves us and welcomes us. However, if our relationship with our mother is wounded then this carries through to our relationship with the Mother archetype and our relationship with Mother Earth herself. Similarly, if there are wounds in our relationship with our father, this ripples through to our relationship with Father as an archetypal energy and to our relationship with Father Sky and the upper-world. In addition, our childhood experience or mother and father, and the relationship between them, shapes our relationship with the anima (feminine) and animus (masculine) archetypes and affects what we seek out in relationships with lovers in our adult lives.
On the weekends, as well as looking at healing any wounds we may have with our actual parents and/or being a parent ourselves, we will explore how to heal and connect with healthy Mother and Father as powerful archetypal energies. We will also explore how our unconscious patterning of the anima and animus shapes what we seek out in terms of lovers and partners in adulthood, and how to do any healing that is needed around this.
The first two weekends will focus on the Mother archetype, the third and fourth weekends on the Father archetype, and the last two weekends on the Lover archetype.
