Thresholds of Descent
A seasonal group exploration of the cycles of death and regeneration.
Did you notice? The light changed, just a spoonful of honey added to the air and a touch more crackle of dried plants when walking through the woods. So many thresholds. Seasonal yes, but also perhaps more permanent, some say we are at a threshold of deciding if our species will continue. Grief rituals and workshops abound for the many thresholds of death we have already witnessed in other species, beautiful places and natural resources. Thresholds where global chaos seems just a breath away. And now the threshold of descent, into winter, into the underworld, into the fallow dreamtime of the Earth.
What awe and wonder might await us if we turned, wide eyed, towards the descent?
Ritual & Myth
Guided by the well known myths and archetypes of the season we will explore our personal relationship with death and the descent to the underworld. We will practice creating meaningful rituals and ceremonies in times of chaos and destruction.
Wide Eyed With Wonder
How might it look to face death and destruction with laughter and joy along with the grief? What does it mean to "bring a good death" to something (or someone)?
Support will be tailored to the groups needs and requests in regards to these themes.
This container is held with the understanding that we are not meant to do some things alone. That we are not isolated individuals acting on a static background, but dynamics players inside a scenario. We will explore using plant (and other natural) allies, as well as mutual aid strategies, to go into the metaphorical underworld of winter with presence and a gleam in our eyes.
