Groundhog Day and the Shero’s Journey

I’m participating in The Shero’s Journey with Jennifer Louden at The En*theos Academy online … described briefly as follows:

In this 5-week course you will work directly with Jennifer Louden as you learn to claim your power, trust it, and use it to transform the world – while having a blast.

I’ve know Jen since the summer of 2007 when I attended a week-long writers retreat at the Mabel Dodge Luhan House in Taos, New Mexico with her and Suzanne Falter Barnes. It was people I met there who encouraged and helped me begin blogging anonymously in October of that year … then supported me for the next three years while I experimented with sharing bits and pieces of myself. I returned to Taos for a second retreat with Jen in the summer of 2010 … after which I created this Giraffe Journal blog first under my real name, then my Labyrinth Journal website. If you’re new here and would like to know more about this you can check out my first post here and my story at my website.

Jen had us do some writing on the call and provided an opportunity to share in ‘break out groups’ using Maestro Conference. She encouraged us to continue to write independently before the next call. What follows are three of seven labyrinth pieces I created in my journal this morning then scanned with the intention to publish them here. I plan to share two more tomorrow and the last two on Saturday.

Because the pieces are nearly impossible to read on the screen, I’ve recorded them so you can listen … or, if you wish, you’re welcome to print them out to read on your own … turning the page round and round as I do. You can make them slightly larger and still listen to me read if you right click to open them in a new window leaving this one open.

The remaining pieces to be shared over the next two days begin as follows and continue the thread:
4 – When things fall apart …
5 – Discovering direct contact with the Divine …
6 – The journey led me …
7 – Many are called and waking up …

Thought for today:

“How might your life have been different, if, deep within, you carried an image of the Great Mother? And when things seemed very, very, bad you could imagine that you were stitting in the lap of the Goddess … held tightly, embraced at last. And that you could hear her saying to you, ‘I love you … I love you and need you to bring forth your self.'”
