Full Schedule

The Divine Feminine famously contains a triplicity of archetypes: Maiden, Mother, and Crone. In this workshop, we will learn about, invoke, and embody a fourth archetype—the QUEEN—which transcends the limitations of the conventional trinity.

While it's empowering to have the feminine stages of life named and characterized by a facet of the Goddess, many feminine folk tire of being classified by our fertility or lack thereof. Some of us have wombs and some don't, some have children and some don't, and some are just not crazy about our age or reproductive status being a marker of our identity.

Enter the Queen.

While you might say the Queen archetype is particularly present for a woman in midlife, falling somewhere between the Mother and the Crone, it's perhaps more accurate to place the Queen archetype above and beyond chronological human life stages. Whether human or divine, Maidens can be Queens, Mothers can be Queens, and Crones can be Queens. So can people and divinities of all genders who may or may not be easily categorized as Maiden, Mother, or Crone. The Queen refuses to be limited by conventional labels and classifications.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • Identifying traits of the Queen archetype, such as elegance, style, directness, and practical mastery,
  • The Queen in world mythology,
  • How working with the Queen can help you feel more confident in life and comfortable in your skin,
  • How to invoke the Queen, and
  • How to begin to embody the Queen today.

Join in a long overdue exploration of this vital aspect of our beloved Goddess. Invite the Queen into your own psyche, live a life of regal mastery, and magnify the Queen's majesty in the world.
