Even in the most devastating of eons, the bones of your foremothers have not stopped chanting their love for you from the walls, and all the old things their hands knew about life, and love, and death, and birth.
If you could see your motherline as a thread between points, each point the place where one of your foremothers gave birth to the next mother in your lineage, where would it lead, what would it spell? What peace might you spin from it, what blessings might you discover? And what pain is held in it too, making it too sharp sometimes even to touch?
Come set the stones— or branches, or mudbricks— back in the walls of your inner sanctuary from where they have fallen due to disuse or destruction. Come retrieve the embers and set them at the center, and listen for the way of tending them that keeps a balance within and without. A domesticity that weaves the wild back in.
In this bundle of three of Sylvia's most popular writing workshops you will trace your way through a labyrinth of old archaeological and mythic material Sylvia has gathered from her studies of Old Europe, her time living in Crete, and her own creative practices. You will come away with pages of new words from a variety of prompts and meditations, and a renewed sense of the unshakeable foundation of your own voice, and your home within our mystery-laced, beloved Earth.
