ABOUT THE WEEK
In traditional stories the Crone invariably shows the heroine the way through the Underworld / Otherworld to liberation. As we journey through the sacred landscape of the Outer Hebrides of Lewis and Harris, we will experience the Initiation of Crone wisdom in our lives. This can assist us to:
- Understand the role of challenge in people's lives and how they can emerge from life crisis renewed.
- Navigate the life passage of menopause physically, emotionally and spiritually. Old traumas often "come back to bite" during menopause, how do we change the narative?
- Activate the power of the 'inner wise women' on a personal and collective level.
- Contact your innate intuition, sense of humour and creativity.
- Meet the powerful Crone plant Mugword and her birds the Heron and Raven.
During our week together we will walk the 'Hag' mountain with Jill Smith as our guide and visit the Callanish Stones. We will use Celtic stories for reflection and growth; sound healing and meditation; breath work; and techniques for unlocking often repressed parts of womanhood.
Receiving constructive feedback or challenge can be an imporant part of growth. Yet sometimes this activates such powerful childhood wounds it paralyses our ability to grow and contact our true inner genius. Working with Crone can help us greatly with this issue. You may also be in a role where you challenge people to grow, and working with Crone would help you do that in a more finely tuned way.
