A workshop with Raven Heart (Hazel Lennox) is set for Dec. 2 which will look at working through the medium of a medicine story, to take a closer look at our own lives using a variety of disciplines.
Lennox has been immersed in the world of legends, myths and fairy tales as a professional storyteller for 30 years.
During this time, she has also studied the work and ideas of Jung, Pinkola-Estes and Bettleheimer, among other teachers. Born into a Celtic family, Lennox has always felt a strong connexion to that lineage and has participated in studies, traditions and ceremonies – where she received her medicine name of Raven Heart.
Since moving to the Comox Valley 25 years ago, Lennox has participated in similar work with First Nations teachers and medicine people.
“There is still great power and relevance for people of today in our ancient heritages,” she says. “I feel very lucky to have had the experiences I did, and I’m thrilled to be able to share some of them.”
Lennox has facilitated workshops for business enterprises, schools and colleges, caring agencies, such as the Canadian Cancer Foundation, and spiritual and religious groups.
“I believe that delving into the heart of medicine stories can bring great insights to our own lives,” states Lennox. “It is a non-judgemental medium, we can feel safe within its cradle, and characters in stories display many of the emotions and conflicts we experience in our own lives. It can bring us to a greater understanding about ourselves and this complex web of life.
Cost is $75.00, which includes a vegetarian lunch and pre-registration and payment is required. The workshop will take place in a yurt and run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Location details will be available upon registration, either by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 250 334-2352.
