Crone - Queen of Winter, Keeper of Bones, Walker Between Worlds, Shadow Maker, Wisdom Bearer, Cold Bringer, Shapeshifter, Mother of Death and Decay. Her womb is an inhospitable place. Life is not supposed to grow here, yet it does. The power of Her womb is growth through adversity, of life asserting itself despite the odds. The Season of the Crone pulls us down to the very heart of darkness, then releases us back into the light reborn and renewed. The Crone’s lessons are deep and dark, and in that space She holds for us a powerful and potent yawning wisdom that continues to radiate and permeate throughout time and space. Her lessons are lifelong and life changing.
Womb of the Crone Fellowship will prepare you and guide you through this important cycle of death to rebirth.
For six months we will join together in virtual circle and do intense work to guide you through the winter months. This will be followed by a three month integration period in the spring, designed to give you the space to process the lessons of the previous months. We will end our time together with a symbolic rebirth on Summer Solstice.
The themes we will be exploring each month are:
September - conception, nesting, orientation
October - building foundations, setting intentions, ancestral connection
November - toxicity, reflection, rite of passage
December - navigating the darkness, giving thanks, creating light
January - liminal space, suspension, radical resting
February - dreaming reality, outer awareness
March - growth, tilling the soil
April - unfurling, development
May - anticipation, duality
June - birth, coming into the light, expansion
Our live circles will explore each theme in-depth through movement, journalling, shamanic journeying, shadow work, meditation, and more. During the integration period, we will provide you with self-paced worksheets and guided meditations to continue our work from the winter but we will not meet in circle. The Fellowship will finish with one final live circle on Summer Solstice, symbolizing your rebirth into this world. Our private Facebook group will be available for the duration of the Fellowship as a shared space to ask us questions and connect with other members.
To keep this space intimate, to foster a sense of close community, and to allow for more guidance and attention, the Fellowship will be limited to 10 participants. The only thing required to join the Fellowship is your commitment and participation.
As with all of our work, this Fellowship is open to anyone regardless of gender identity, age, race, sexual orientation, or religion. We are an open, accepting space for all who wish to join. No prior experience in movement, meditation, shadow work, etc. is needed. It is recommended that you have some prior experience with shamanic journeying. If not, you can take an introductory workshop with Kyra on September 12th at a discounted rate. Please email her for details.
"It is the time where a second birth occurs through a magical source, and whereafter the soul now lays claim to two bloodlines, one from the physical world, one from the world unseen."
