About this Event

Inanna’s Journey, Your Journey: An online course 💙June 2-30, 2020

✨This course ~ this story ~ is for you. ✨ We offer you a creative, soul-nourishing pathway to self-discovery, meaning, reconnection, and healing, as you return, whole yet transformed, to your authentic self. (Deposit of $40 to save your spot; balance of $170 due June 1.)

🌺 Imagine a space where you connect with others who value meaningful, compassionate explorations of universal life experiences such as birth, illness, death, loss, joy, doubt, love, friendship, and courage. A space where you will touch and respond to your own inner truth and intuition, and leave behind that which no longer serves you.

🌺 Imagine a fertile ground where your creative soul is sparked, nurtured, and bears fruit.

🌺 Imagine being guided through the unknown territory of your life by following the ancient footsteps of a mythic, powerful goddess who is brought to her knees again and again, then rises and returns with deep knowing and wisdom. She is you.

🌺 We create this space, till this ground, and unfold this map, just for you.

💜 In this month-long course, we gather in a virtual community to explore the ancient Sumerian myth of Inanna, Queen of Heaven and Earth, as she answers a call to make a harrowing voyage into the unknown, to the Underworld…and back. What she faces, feels, leaves behind, and learns may be mirrored within your own life transitions and struggles.

💙 This course is a deep dive, designed for anyone going through life changes, challenges, or crises (or supporting others). Through hearing, exploring, and reflecting on Inanna's journey, we discover and excavate meaning in the struggles, transitions, and triumphs of our lives. Using art-making, ritual, journaling, and other self-discovery processes, we come to more deeply understand, love, and care for ourselves. Come journey with Inanna and feel her story become your story. Let her story change you.

💛 More details:

You are welcome to participate in this course in the way that works for you, for your learning style, and for your life. Your journey can be private or communal. All videos and live calls will be available to you to access, watch, and re-watch, at your own pace (and archived for you to access for one year). All written materials will be emailed to you to keep, use, and refer to forever! Our online gathering space (a Facebook group) is private and optional; share what you want or just observe and listen (or ignore it all together). Space is limited to maintain an intimate atmosphere; make a deposit now to hold your space.

🧡 Included in this course: Virginia's retelling of the myth of Inanna's Descent; a unique Inanna’s Journey Journal (PDF-printable) for your personal use and ongoing discovery; additional juicy info on archetypes, symbols, and mythology to spark your imagination and exploration; dozens of journaling prompts and art processes for self-reflection and creative expression. These are in addition to 4 pre-recorded videos, weekly live video calls, a private facilitated Facebook group, and weekly check-in emails.

❤️ This course will be presented in English by Virginia Bobro, with Russian translation (by Daria Utkina) of all videos, live conference calls, written materials, and discussions (Facebook’s automatic translation feature is quite good). We welcome both English and Russian speakers in this course. While translation slows the pace, we've found that it can enrich participants’ experience, as it gives them time to chew on, digest, and metabolize the content. We also all benefit from the added richness of cross-cultural sharing and understanding. Stepping outside one’s comfort zone is a key theme of Inanna’s story. Please join us in our journey of self-discovery, connection, and healing.

💜 Cost: $210 USD; 12,900₽. Non-refundable deposit to hold your spot: $40; 2,600₽ (full balance of $170 must be paid prior to June 1). If you are registering from within Russia, there is a separate registration page: http://dariautkina.ru/inanna20

💙 Live video conference calls (90 min) are Tuesdays from 9:00-10:30 am (Pacific time); 19:00-20:30 (Moscow time), beginning June 2 and ending June 23. Course is open for one additional week and officially closes on June 30 (though you will have access to the Facebook group and all materials for one year).
