Into the Labyrinth Series with Renee Bedard
We travel through our lives experiencing a vast array of emotions. We have joys and sorrows. There are successes and setbacks. There are parts of us that we love to share with others that tend to be hidden far from view. But what do we do with the sorrows, setbacks, painful and traumatic events? We often hear that we need to keep positive and carry on. Looking to the bright side all the time can create harmful patterns that help us ignore our needs, heathy habits, and in turn we can feel stuck or angry. What if instead of ignoring our darkness, our own “monster in the dark”, we made our way towards it with gentleness and a willingness to listen? What if we offered love to ourselves with gentle kindness and care? It can be a difficult thing to do. However, it is one of the most important gifts that we can learn to give ourselves.

Walking The Labyrinth is a program that helps us move inward and listen to what our hearts have been waiting to heal. In this seven-class program, taken singularly or all together, we will offer ourselves the sacred space that is needed for shadow work. After we give ourselves time to process our work, we will gather once again to discuss any questions, experiences, or concerns that may come up with this deep work. This will allow us to be open and receive the support that is necessary along this journey. We will begin to travel the path into our depths this fall and emerge anew in spring. We will be working with many myths that talk about the descent of the hero and the experiences that must take place for them to rise one again. Together, we will search out what is within our shadow, sharing light to allow for healing and connection as we are birthed from darkness.

Each class will run from 7 – 9:30 at $50.00 per session. This is where we will discuss the myths of each month and experience our journey within. Two weeks later, we will gather for a group check in session if you choose. This will allow you to check in with me to ask any questions you may have or share your experiences after you had time to reflect. This will begin at 7 and last for 60 to 90 minutes. Please feel free to bring a journal for personal notes and thoughts from our journey work.

October 18th – Persephone: Queen of the Under World and Goddess of Spring

    What happens when innocence is lost? What happens when life shifts and creates great change when it is not asked for? How do we begin to explore all of our aspects if we choose to lock away or deny what remains in shadow? Do we turn a blind eye to what we fear or do we work to gain an understanding of who we are at our core, embracing our sovereignty?

    In this class, we will look to the myth of Persephone. As a bright and lovely maiden, Kore, the daughter of Demeter, was ripped away and brought to the Under World where she becomes Persephone. We will seek her guidance on how she is both darkness and light as Queen of the Under World and Goddess of Spring. We will delve into our own darkness and gently open the way to help find our own inner wisdom to balance, heal, and embrace our own darkness and light.
