In November 2016, Americans, including 53% of white women, chose an unqualified man over an experienced woman to be their president despite his repeated devaluation of women. Had the gender of each candidate been reversed, would this have happened? What do events such as this say about modern misogyny, particularly within the female psyche?
Combining historical reference, mythology and clinical examples, we will examine the way the modern female identity is shaped and expressed. Using archetypes such as Lilith, Eve and Medusa we will question misogynistic attitudes that women may have internalized and enacted. A portion of this seminar will be an experiential process designed to explore shadow material in the participants and the collective. By bringing this destructive complex into greater awareness, we hope to initiate its transformation. We will employ aspects of the deep feminine - presence, interrelatedness and creative unfolding - to support the journey.
