“The Handless Maiden offers material for a woman’s entire life process, and covers a many- years-long journey. It is about women’s initiation through the rite of endurance, meaning to harden, to make sturdy, to make robust, to strengthen. Endurance means we are making something substantial.” ~ C. Pinkola-Estes

A BODYDREAMING™ ONGOING PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT MODULE – What is it to be a woman today? What is it that is coming into consciousness individually and collectively at this time of great change? What are the values that we cherish? How do we embody this new consciousness? How might we find our own robust and sturdy action in a world which is crying out for the touch of the feminine?  THIS WORKSHOP OFFERS the opportunity to explore these questions through the story “The Handless Maiden”, as well as through play embodiment, discussion and BodyDreaming™.
