the C-Change online course section. Each of the following courses will be offered online, here on this
website, where you will have the opportunity to enter a virtual classroom that
is open 24/7. You will have the
opportunity, in your own time, to engage with others in your group, in a forum,
a chat room, or privately if you choose, through your own C-Change
mailbox. Early each week, once the
course begins, your facilitator will post or assign your reading and writing
assignments, discussion questions etc. You
will then have the week to respond and discuss.
But you won’t want to wait too long!
You will want to enjoy, as much as possible, the sharing, dialogue,
exchange of insights, and the support of your group! (Note:
The forums and chat rooms are secure; and only those currently enrolled in a particular course will have
download the student guide to familiarize yourself with our systems.
Myths, like fairy tales, continue to be told - even after thousands of years. And, because they describe the human experience, they continue to be relevant. Are you a ‘human being’ or a ‘human doing’? Are you trying to be Superwoman? Are you feeling betrayed by an achievement-oriented and/or a material world, a world that seems to value thinking over feeling? Have we lost touch with the feminine, with our feelings in our bodies and with planet earth itself? According to Jean Shinoda Bolen, many of her clients sought her help as a therapist “in order to learn how to be better heroines in their own life stories”. In this workshop, based on an understanding of the goddess archetypes, we explore how to become better “heroines” in our own life stories. Drawing on Bolen’s work, we will examine how the goddess archetypes are expressed in our own lives: in our motivation, our awareness, and in the roles that we take. What drives our life stories? Can we be better heroines? In addition to Bolen’s work, we may draw upon the work of Clarissa Pinkola Estés, Maureen Murdock, Carol Pearson, Marion Woodman and others.
