Wisewoman: Ageless Archetype of the Eternal Feminine

Course number : 19845   ID : 88458    Class Section : FAA-PE
« back to classes page
Although typically portrayed as the crone, the wise woman can appear in all stages of feminine age and power  from the elusive Sophia (the Greek word for wisdom) in the Bible, to the young virgin priestess who prophesizes, the majestic queen who rules with power and wisdom or the ancient crone who heals.  She may represent the solar goddesses such as Ishtar or the Spider Woman goddess of the Navajos. This class will discuss the various roles of the wise woman through the ages and see how this archetypal feminine power is portrayed today both on the inner stage of the psyche and the outer stage of world affairs.  There will be plenty of examples drawn from history and today’s news with ample time for discussion and personal examples, too
