This event is sold-out. Please subscribe to the Newsletter for more info on my next event at The Ritman Library / Embassy of the Free Mind in Amsterdam.

LECTURE | Dream of the Cosmos: Introduction to the History of the Feminine
Feminine Consciousness and the Rise of a New Story.

ABOUT THE LECTURE
Who and what is the Goddess? How did the world look like before patriarchy and the rise of science and technology? What price do we pay for the modern life we live, the comfort and technological advances we enjoy every day?

In this introductory talk, we will explore the history of Feminine Consciousness. Jungian researcher Faranak Mirjalili will take us back through reflecting on Anne Baring’s book The Dream of the Cosmos. A Quest for the Soul to a pre-patriarchal time; a time where feminine values were honoured, and her work considered important and essential. A time when the Earth was considered a sacred being that we could relate to, which gave us not only physical recourses but also spiritual nourishment and a deeper meaning to life. What happened to this consciousness and to the Soul of the World, what the ancient alchemists called the ‘Anima Mundi’? Can we redeem this ancient wisdom and what role does mythology, dreamwork and alchemy have in this?

Anne Baring is a pioneer in the historical research of the feminine aspect of the gods… She addresses the real cultural roots of the multifaceted crisis we currently experience globally - spiritually, psychologically, ecologically, socially, politically and economically. Baring derived inspiration from the ideas that are present in the Embassy of the Free Mind, which is also why she personally embraces the initiative. As a young researcher, Faranak Mirjalili will bring these ideas closer to us.

ABOUT THE LECTURER
Faranak Mirjalili is a myth- and storyteller and a Jungian Dreamwork teacher. She is a student of the works of C. G. Jung and in Training as a Jungian Analyst in The Netherlands. As a research student in the field of Feminine Consciousness and Embodiment, she focuses on the connection of the organs and spiritual centres of the body to the personal and collective unconscious, with an emphasis on the importance of the heart in the transformation of consciousness. Her interest and work are on how the body and wisdom of a new emerging Feminine can be of service in a time of global ecological crisis.
Faranak works in both groups and individually. Her work and research aim to break out of the individual therapy room and make space for group-work by connecting to the collective ‘Mundus Imaginalis’ through the world of Myth and Fairytales. She offers workshops in Europe and teaches myth and dreamwork internationally to students through her Online Program.

Motherland is Calling - talk
Sep

Motherland is Calling - talk

MOTHERLAND IS CALLING is the name of an artistic research-based project by Olga Ganzha. The title comes from the name of the statue in Volgograd city (formerly Stalingrad) in Russia. The Motherland is calling statue is a part of a monumental ensemble commemorating the Battle of Stalingrad that was built in 1967. It is a gigantic woman – motherland – with a mouth wide open, calling her children to war, holding her sword high up. Faranak will be giving a talk on the history and repression of Feminine Consciousness and the rise of a new emerging Feminine in a time of Global Crisis. The talk will be followed by a ritual dedicated to the Feminine Archetypes.

Working with the Deep Feminine retreat

A weekend immersion into the Wisdom of the Sacred Feminine through Dance, Embodiment, Mythology and Dreamwork.
This is a gathering for women who are feeling called to start a deeper relationship to the Feminine, what Anne Baring calls the 'deep feminine' within ourselves and the Earth. The deep feminine is found in the deeper layers of the psyche that we can access through our dreamworld, the symbols of the inner world and the archetypal realms of the feminine which are encoded in ancient mythology.

Anahita (free online gathering)

Anahita (free online gathering)

What are the Mysteries of Water? 
What is the relationship of the Feminine with the Lake, 
the Oceans, the Waters of Life? 

On June 9th I am facilitating and sharing the Mysteries of Anahita with a group of women in Amsterdam, The Netherlands as part of the Dancing In Her Flames archetypal journeys. This Online event is for those abroad who would like to join but can't. 
We will do this on Zoom. Starting with a short dream circle sharing and then I will take you through the myth of Anahita and my personal and intimate journey with her in my own dreamworld and the work within my Jungian Training.  


----

The Persian Mysteries have been forgotten, covered over by the modern patriarchal structures of Iran with much consequences. Anahita was worshipped in ancient Persia for a very long time. She is said to 'bless womens wombs' and 'purify mens semen' - she was known as the sensual Goddess, the fertility goddess for both body and land. She was the Lady of the Lake and could teach women and men the mysteries of Water and the body. 

"Woman is the Carrier of Water. She is the fountain in which the pure Waters of Life can be held in, contained and protected and most importantly given to those around her that are in need of it. These can be people around her as well as nature and the invisible life of this world. She is a well, a resting place for the thirsty and a place of purification and nurturance. This is deeply hidden within the mysterious field of a woman. She might not even know it, and actually many times she doesn't, but she serves life by just being herself, a woman. 
This well will deepen and deepen if she has a rooted relationship to matter, to the Earth, outside of her, but mostly - within her own body and soul. If she has dug deep, deep within the matter of her own heart - the well of water is more pure, more fresh - coming from the Source of the Primal Waters itself...this is such a deep mystery that women have forgotten, that has been erased by the collective consciousness and yet it is an ancient connection - Water and Woman - Woman and Water…to many women this will feel very natural. "

Feel free to invite friends. This event is free. Men are welcome too.

This will be a ZOOM call, 8PM Amsterdam time. Please register for the link.
