Please join me for this informal discussion with Trista Hendren of Girl God Press https://www.thegirlgod.com/index.php] about my chapter 'Medusa and Athena: Ancient Allies in Healing Women's Trauma', which appeared in the 2017 anthology Re-visioning Medusa: From Monster to Divine Wisdom [http://thegirlgod.com/revisioning_medusa.php]. I suggest that Medusa and Athena, both goddesses of healing, wisdom, and protection, can offer valuable support for healing from trauma, if we look beyond the patriarchal projections which have distorted the original nature of these powerful goddesses. You can read my essay here [https://www.academia.edu/40084567/Medusa_and_Athena_Ancient_Allies_in_Healing_Womens_Trauma] or purchase the book from the Girl God website [http://thegirlgod.com/revisioning_medusa.php]
This is one of a series of four conversations with experts in the realm of sacred feminine mythology, examining the ancient myth of Medusa. Trista Hendren will be hosting Glenys Livingstone, Laura Shannon, Miriam Robbins Dexter and Joan Marler, in a groundbreaking series that reveals the ancient truths buried in Medusa’s story and her malignment. The conversations with these wise women will illuminate the myth’s relevance to the current rise of feminine energy and will enable you to harness it to facilitate change in your life and in the world. Medusa's power—and ours—has been deemed monstrous and has been hidden, but is ripe for reclamation. Sessions on Wednesdays, September 8, 15, 22 and 29, at 1-2 pm UK time (8-9 am Eastern, 2-3 pm Central Europe, 3-4 pm Eastern Europe).
