|Pre-dawn hours, reading in the kitchen.|
A week ago today, I attended a visual art journaling workshop with a Jungian perspective. It was a part of my Crone Pilgrimage, to use artwork, symbolism and archetype to gain more insight into this period of my life.
The workshop had us creating collage, much like soul collage. Using images, symbols, shapes, colors and three-dimensional items, we created a version of our Hestia.
Hestia, as we know, is goddess of the hearth, home and sacred fire.
It is important that Hestia nourishes herself first. Without that inner nurturing and fulfillment, Hestia becomes depleted and cannot keep the sacred fires burning for family and community.
During my Crone Pilgrimage, I am clear that I will nurture and rejuvenate my spirit for the Crone Years that I am now beginning to live. This is a time of nurturing self through contemplation, guided workshop artwork and reading.
Do you have Hestia in your life? What do you do to stabilize your internal economy so that you can live in the archetype of Hestia?
