Voices of Women with Host Kris Steinnes: Karen Fletcher on Staffs and Hammers of the Wild Women and Wendy Rule on The Healing Powers of the Underworld

Do you love forests? Do you love to dance? Do you enjoy the mystery of alchemizing beauty, wisdom and wildness through our bodies? This is the heart of the practices of Qigong, Earthgym and Ritual! Learn a nourishing qigong warm-up and open your qi flow to activate your body's wisdom. Using talisman tools of Nordic women ancestors—staffs and iron hammers—we discover fundamental movements/katas, developing rhythm, rapport, and repetition, and end by entering into the gateway and alchemy of ritual. 

Wendy shares her own healing journey through the Underworld, and explores ways that we can draw on the transformative powers of the Crone for our own personal healing. Using the myth of Persephone we explore how she plays out in our lives, and how to re-emerge from the underworld. Darkness has been misaligned in our mainstream culture and now Nature teaches us how to honor the dark. Discover the stories behind Wendy’s most powerful songs, and how to use them in rituals to honor The Dark Goddess.
