In this live webinar series Iranian-American artist & scholar Lydia Violet willguide you in exploring the cultural inheritance of one of your ancestries through researching myths, folktales, archetypes, musical instrumentation, and song
By the end of this course you will have a deeper understanding of the cosmologies/myths/stories held within your inherited cultural lineage(s), a deeply medicinal endeavor in our time.
You will also be supported in discovering and learning the nature of mythic truth, cosmology, and psyche. You will explore how story gives way to culture, giving way to root traditions and the expanse of the diaspora. You will delve into learning about the instruments and musical styles singing in your blood. You will see the connections and differentiations across cultures. And most importantly, you will practice reconnection within the diaspora, defining what relationship with your ancestors means for you.
You do not need to have musical experience to take this course!
"...The old woman sings over the bones, and as she sings, the bones flesh out. We too 'become' as we pour soul over the bones we have found. As we pour our yearning and our heartbreaks over the bones of what used to be when we were young, of what we used to know in the centuries past, and over the quickening we sense in the future, we stand on all fours, four-square. As we pour soul, we are revivified. We are no longer a thin solution, a dissolving frail thing. No. We are in the 'becoming' stage of transformation." - Clarissa Pinkola Estes, Women Who Run With the Wolves
