priestessing yourself....

Spent the weekend in a workshop taught by Ruth Barrett: Priestessing Yourself and Others. I highly recommend it if you ever get a chance to take a workshop from her. She is a wonderfully intelligent intuitive teacher. I was very impressed with her style and ability to bring us all through the challenges of the workshop.

One of the things we did was create a ritual for ourselves - but not in a manner I have ever done before. We each practiced being present for the other in a way that drew out the ritual from the other woman while not putting any of our selves into their ritual. Its something to be experienced rather then described!

I have read Ruth's book, Womens Rites, Womens Mysteries a couple times; its a great reference book. However, working with Ruth took us to a much deeper level of understanding. I walked away with a real appreciation for how to create deep ritual and how much work it is.
