Event description

Description

A workshop with mythologist & storyteller Catherine Svehla Ph.D.




Where are you in your journey to self-fulfillment?

You probably know something about the 'Hero’s Journey', Joseph Campbell’s brilliant revelation of a mythic pattern that still infuses most of our lives.

The Hero’s Journey is now ubiquitous, but it doesn’t really speak to the life experience of women.

Women and men do not travel the same path or face the same psychic tasks and challenges. In fact, Campbell famously said that women didn’t need to make the journey.

Tell that to my weary feet and wandering soul!

There is a Heroine’s Journey, and we will map it together, drawing on the words, ideas, and art of women, and the ancient myth of Eros and Psyche.

Explore your journey to self-realization through:

  • Conversation and story work
  • Guided meditation and journaling
  • Art and ritual

Aided by the magic that arises from a circle of women, you will consider where you’ve been, and what lies ahead. It's going to be an amazing, energizing, heart-opening adventure.

This workshop kicks off on Tuesday December 5 with an opening evening session from 6-8pm in the Clubhouse at Ace Hotel & Swim Club, Palm Springs.

Wednesday December 6:

Buffet breakfast from 8:30-9:30am in the Clubhouse.

The workshop starts at 9:30am, and ends at 5pm, with an hour-long break for a buffet lunch at 12:30pm.

We will have an evening screening in the Clubhouse of Ensoulment: A Diverse Analysis of the Feminine in Western Culture from 7:30pm-9:30pm. Attendance to the screening optional, and will be open to the public and other Ace Hotel guests in addition to the workshop participants, so feel free to please yourself!

Ensoulment is an award-winning film that explores the question: what is the feminine in Western culture? It weaves interviews with personalities such as Dr. James Hollis, Dr. Abigail Disney or Rev. Dr. Serene Jones, and amazing academics like Dr. Cynthia Eller, Dr. Anne Fausto-Sterling (among many others), with the animated story of filmmaker Lorís Simón as she embarks on a journey in search of meaning, belonging and the path back to her true self.


Ensoulment won the Grand Jury Prize at the Barcelona International Film Festival 2014, the Golden Palm Award at the Mexico International Film Festival 2014, the Platinum Award at the International Film Festival for Women, Social Issues and Zero Discrimination 2015, and the Gold Award at the World Humanitarian Awards 2015, among many others.
