Menopause is so often portrayed by the over-culture as the beginning of a time of decline, but if we’re able to embrace the depth of its alchemy, it can usher in a rich and vibrant new phase of life as we journey into a meaningful and authentic elderhood. In this workshop, we’ll unearth the stories of the little-known but powerful elder women in European myth and folklore, inspiring us to imagine that the last decades of our lives might be the most dynamic of all. Drawing inspiration from mythic figures and archetypes ranging from the Wise Woman and the Creatrix to the Truthteller and the Trickster, we’ll plot a liberating new path to reimagine the second half of our lives.

How can we prepare ourselves for yet another searing transformation, and move into the second half of life with a new sense of vitality, creativity and vision?

How might we work with the stories of the little-known but powerful elder women in myth and folklore – both to inspire us to create new stories of our own, and to reimagine our journey to and through elderhood?

How can we uncover and embrace our own unique, archetypal Inner Hag?

How do we fully and finally embody the unique gift which each of us brings to this world at this time?
