This class explores the often misunderstood but infinitely healing dark goddess archetype. Hers is the energy that helps us tend to our traumas, the harsher side of nature, and our fears. Many cultures have their own versions of the dark mother, and the instructor Jezmina comes to this topic from her own cultural perspective and from the position of a curious scholar. You will learn about some of the names and faces of dark goddess, rituals to honor and connect with her, practical applications of dark goddess devotion, divination with goddesses, and how to explore her energy within ourselves. While we will focus on a feminine archetype, this class is open to all gender identities. Be sure to bring a notebook and pen to take notes if you wish, and an oracle deck or tarot deck if you have it.
Jezmina Von Thiele (she/they) is a mixed Romani-Sinti fortune teller, healer, writer, performer, educator, and activist. She reads tarot, palms, and tea leaves in her grandmother's Sinti-Romani tradition. The women on Jezmina's Sinti side of the family have been fortune tellers, healers, and dancers for many generations. (Roma are also known by the slur, "Gypsy," but it is not the preferred term, and it is requested that non-Roma do not use it.)
