Lasara Firefox Allen wrote a marvelous book called Jailbreaking the Goddess, which offers a fivefold, nonlinear model of the Goddess (and therefore all women), rather than the threefold model, which assumes, amongst other things, that all women breed. Incorporating the fivefold model, we will explore who we are and how we are experiencing our lives. We’ll be offering original meditations, rituals, and exercises, accumulated wisdom, and a place for questions and discussion.
Starting in January with an introduction to the concepts, we will explore one of the archetypes each month. Because this is not a linear or biology-dependant model, there will always be something with which you can identify. If you are working through, or having trouble processing, something specific, drop one of us a note, and we’ll do our best to incorporate support for that specific issue into that month’s Circle.
While this is not a book club, if you would like to pick up your own copy of Jailbreaking the Goddess, you will have a stronger grasp of the foundation material we will be using.
We ask that persons under the age of 18 be accompanied by a parent or guardian, and suggest that it may not be suitable for younger children – babes in arms are an exception. You do not need to have experience with any tradition or path, we request only that you bring a friendly heart and an open mind. To be clear, all women are welcome, as well as enbys who feel called to participate.
Wear comfortable clothes, and please bring a potluck snack (with a list of ingredients, so people can honor their own food needs and sensitivities) to share. Food recommendations include seasonal fruit or veggies, chicken, cheese, your signature salad, rice crackers, popcorn, or juice.
As a note, in the second half of the year, we will be focusing more on the occult or shadow side of each archetype, and how we embody and work with those.
