Daughters of Copper Woman by Anne Cameron
Presented by Muriel McMahon M.Ed.
A myth for our times or a time of myth? Anne Cameron's retelling of Northwest Coast Indian myths in the Canadian classic, Daughters of Copper Woman has been met with both criticism and celebration for decades. First published in 1981, this beloved and controversial book has sold over 200,000 copies.
Jungian analyst and Canadian storyteller, Muriel McMahon will explore these myths and address their psychological relevance for our times. In light of the National Inquiry into the Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women in Canada, a scholarly examination of the intersection between fiction and truth, myth and meaning, and the trans-generational inheritance we carry, Daughters of Copper Woman aims to awaken the social and spiritual power of women.

Blood Memory by Martha Graham
Presented by Loralee Scott-Conforti MFA
"The main thing, of course, always is the fact that there is only one of you in the world, just one, and if that is not fulfilled then, something has been lost...It is through this that the legends of the soul's journey are retold with all their tragedy and their bitterness and sweetness of living."
In this autobiography, Martha Graham pulls back the curtain and shares not only the behind the scenes stories, but opens up her very soul and allows us a glimpse into the creative daemon of a gifted artist. While her choreography showed us the brilliance of her talent and work, her writing reveals the archetypal struggles and rewards of engaging with the creative and daring to become our most authentic self. In this webinar we will compare Graham's personal journey to the well-known myth and later ballet, The Red Shoes, as an illustration not of addiction, but of creative possession and the resulting exile from patriarchal institutions for women who choose to live out the legends of their soul's journey. Graham's life and legacy stands in contradistinction to this myth and as an encouragement to embrace creative authenticity as a spiritual journey towards individuation.

The Red Tent by Anita Diamant
Presented by Silvia Behrend D.Min, M.Div.
Inside the Red Tent:
Imagine for a moment entering a space dedicated to you, your soul, your experience of what it means to be a woman/girl/female among others whose stories are not often told or recognized. The Red Tent, by Anita Diamant, gives voice to the story of Dinah by enfleshing the dry bones of the biblical narrative which hides, occludes and distorts the lived experience of women. Join us in a virtual Red Tent, where, free from the distractions of the outer world, we can gather to celebrate and elevate what is unseen and unknown in our psyches.
