Las Lobas Women’s Group

Autumn Term 2021 – Maturarion and Harvest

Advanced close Women’s Group Year Programme 2021. This Programme aims to deepen the work towards the Art of Friendship through the participant’s experience of belonging to ‘the pack’.

This Autumn Term is inspired by 16 Greek Deities (a nymph among them). These myths are our cultural pillars. The roots and original framework of western civilisation from a time when the “love for wisdom” was the fruit of committed labour. Gods and Goddesses expressed forces of Nature and also intimate human experiences. Through their joys and struggles, we extracted meaning to organise the internal and the wider world alike. Eternal and Mighty embody the elemental qualities that served to the construction and informed our perception of Self and relationships.
