The Sacred Work of the Feminine: Iphigenia in Aulis

This workshop is offered in Sao Paolo, Brazil. The workshop description is listed in both English and Portuguese.

“Our lives are an invitation to conscious reflection, a challenge to bear witness to a large symbolic drama which courses through individuals. While the deeper intent of such intimations may puzzle, even frighten the ego, the service to those great energies we call the gods, obliges a more respectful relationship than that which we have more commonly lived”.
~ James Hollis, Mythologems – Incarnations of the Invisible World

In this 4-day workshop we will walk the pathway of Iphigenia. Based on the Euripides tragedy, the film Iphigenia in Aulis will lead us to the symbolic pathway of the transformation of the feminine through life. We women know how often in life our wishful dreams can not be fulfilled due to the many interferences from human kind to gods.

Through conscious knowledge, acceptance and recognition that our own transformation and sacrifice will also transform the destiny of the collective, the Sacro-Oficio of the feminine takes its symbolic place in the domain of the divine.

Join us in this journey! We will be listening to dreams, dancing, voicing, writing and painting our joy of being alive and in transformation.

​O workshop Feminilidade Consciente foi idealizado para mulheres que buscam um autoconhecimento consciente, proporcionando uma oportunidade de  transformação e crescimento que conecta a sabedoria  do corpo aos ritmos da alma e do espirito.

Em um espaço sagrado, Themenos, reflexões compartilhadas, meditações, poesias, sonhos, mitos, movimento espontâneo, expressão criativa, imaginação ativa, experiência somática, rituais, trabalhos de corpo e de voz, confecção de máscaras, atelier de arte, são recursos utilizados para facilitar a experiência da dança do corpo e da alma. Relações com a neurociência também fazem parte do repertório teórico.

O trabalho corpo/alma é uma abordagem alternativa para o tratamento de distúrbios que afetam o equilíbrio físico, emocional e espiritual, uma vez que, o autoconhecimento ancorado no corpo,  leva à confiança na experiência interior e ao empoderamento e capacidade de restauração do sistema biológico e psíquico.
