Our Mothers,

Our Selves

10 Recorded Sessions

plus Creative Resource Guide!

Our relationships with our mothers comprise some of the most psychologically complex and intertwined dynamics of our lives. In this 10 week Studio Sessions Series, we will explore some of the archetypal feminine identities that are often repressed or ignored, but which may contain the key to genuine transformation in ourselves and in our relationships.  Some of the archetypal identities we will explore are:


- The Caged Bird

- The Muse

- The Rejected Lover

- The Bag Lady

- The Recluse

- The Revolutionary

- The Visionary

In this 10 week on-line series of studio sessions, we will explore some of the archetypal motifs of the mother-daughter relationship and how this affects self-identity through a process of both lecture and art making. Using the book, Meeting the Madwoman, by Linda Schierse Leonard, as a key text in addition to supporting material from Jung's Collected Works, Erich Neumann's, The Great Mother and Marion Woodman's writings, each week will focus on a specific theme in both the lecture portion and the art sharing portion of the session. Each 30 minute recorded studio session is focused on an illumination and amplification of themes from the text.  Follow each recorded session with a chapter from the Creative Resource guide for a deep engagement with this material.

What's Included:


* Ten on-line lecture presentations that are recorded and available for your convenience

* Creative Resource Guide with additional books, films, Youtube links and creative prompts

*Private Facebook Forum for group discussions and postings
