Format: Self Study – you may begin at anytime
Guides/Instructors: Brandi Auset & Kimberly Moore
Registration: WILL BE RE-OPENING FALL 2017
Length: Self-paced – 10 weeks with a Welcome, 9 Goddesses & 9 In-depth Practices
The Dark Goddesses are the Initiators, the Psychopomps, the threshold Goddesses between our world and the otherworld. They mediate our consciousness, expose our shadows and accompany us through the underworld – through our unconscious. Many of the Dark Goddesses are Creators and Destroyers – they hold sway over the most powerful moments in human lives: childbirth, initiation, death, dreams, and both shamanic and psychic experiences. In this course, we will meet, connect, and embrace the shadow through the wisdom of the Dark Goddess.
Meeting the Dark Goddess is a 9 week online course. It is moderated self study, meaning that the Priestesses, Brandi Auset and Kimberly Moore, are available for questions and assistance, but you are able to complete the course completely at your own pace. It may take 9 weeks or 9 months. This is deep and intense material and should be approached with flexibility.
While the Dark Goddesses may seem an intimidating group on the surface, there is so much that they bring to us – knowledge of our shadow sides, initiations, transitions. Without their influence and regard, we would not move forward in our journeys or incarnations. They represent the cycles of our human and spiritual lives. Archetypally, they are death (spiritual and physical) and the promise of rebirth. Through them, we are able to fully Know Ourselves.
Each week you will meet a new Dark Goddess from a range of pantheons and traditions. We will explore the myth and wisdom offered by the Goddess, as well as how they manifest in modern day. A practice and resources accompanies each Goddess so that you may choose to connect further to those Goddesses that call you.
Goddesses included in this course are:
- Baba Yaga
- Maman Brigitte
