This video course explores the modern implications of the myth of Persephone, the most revered spiritual power in Greece for thousands of years. More than a mere “seasonal story,” Persephone’s journey is rich with psychological and spiritual depth. Forced to move between levels of consciousness, Persephone learned to find life-affirming value in all of them.
In our world today, when we, like Persephone, can feel overtaken by changes so devastating that they require a radical transformation of consciousness, the seven videos and the varied supplemental materials in this self-paced course allow us to reflect on ways that we too can deal with loss and sorrow as well as renewal and rebirth.
Lessons include commentary by ancient and modern interpreters of archetypal motifs, ventures into history and psychology, and hundreds of images created by the finest artists of all times.
