Mary Reynolds Thompson: Awakening to the Forest Woman Archetype: A Five-Part Writing Workshop

Check out Mary Reynolds Thompson's interview on Centerpost: Eimear Stassin Interviews Mary Reynolds Thompson as Part of the Healing the Witch Wound Global Online Summit, and her free recorded programs,The Wild Scribe: An Introduction to Nature Journaling and Earth Wisdom in the Time of the Coronavirus.

The Forest Woman Archetype represents an awakening to one’s own unique path in life. Creatrix, witch, crone, she is wise to the ways of the wild feminine, drawing you deeper into the mysteries of life. The initiated Forest Woman is one who is grounded in her own lifeforce—able to engage the powers of darkness and deep imagination.

Guided by Mary Reynolds Thompson, an award-winning writer, facilitator of poetry and journal therapy, and pioneer in the emerging field of spiritual ecology, you will explore in this five-part online course the place of the Forest Woman Archetype in your own life and see how she has the power to awaken you to your own particular magic and wisdom. 

You will:

  • Explore the archetypal significance of Forest Woman in your life
  • Enter the dark forest of your imagination
  • Reclaim your wild, witching power
  • Write from a deeper, more creative place  

For a short syllabus describing each session, see here.

Each session will be 90 minutes long and will offer multiple writing prompts. There will also be opportunities to share your writings in small, intimate groups. The work is creative, deep, imaginative, and allows for many different styles of writing techniques, from poetry to prose. 

As with our other paid programs, upon registration, you will receive a confirmation email that includes a link and password to access recordings. Recordings will be posted at that link within a day or two following each session.
