The Mystic Woman

Life and death. Creation and destruction. Becoming and releasing. This familiar cyclical wheel is all around us. We see it reflected in our natural environment, the seasonal wheel (no matter how subtle the shifts), the moon, our menstrual cycles and countless other places. Once we know the cycle, we see it everywhere. When a woman integrates, embodies and harnesses this cycle she taps into a deep wisdom within and connection to creative source. She connects to an intuitive perception beyond the every day comings and goings of life. She is connected to the sacred creative; the ongoing cycles of life.  She is vibrantly alive, touching what our ancient ancestors called “the mysteries.” Through this relationship and the celebration of this cycle she is full of agape. She is a Mystic Woman.

The Ways of Women

In the center of the wheel resides creative source. Each woman’s creative source is unique to her and links her to her ancestral connections, the natural environment and her personal sense of the sacred.  Women have been passing down the wisdom of Mystic Women as far back as we can imagine.  We see it passed down in herbal medicine recipes, rites of passage, and the heirloom tomato seeds found in your grandmother’s garden.  We see it stitched into the quilts that keep us warm in the winter, in the celebratory ritual dances and the lace crocheted on your sister’s pillow case.  We see the wisdom woven and wrapped and immersed in the “ways of women.”  If we are lucky, we are taught these ways of being and creating in the world. The wisdom of the sacred creative is like the story of the red thread that connects us to all we have known and all we are destined to meet. The thread of creativity connects us all; from the moment of our inception to the moment of our transition out of life.  However, just like the red thread, sometimes this wisdom is invisible, unknown, and sometimes it is lost or forgotten.  Judith Duerk, in The Circle of Stones, asks the powerful question, “How might your life be different if there had been a place for you to go to learn the ways of women?”

Mystic Woman is one response to Ms. Duerk’s inquiry.  Grounded in our creative source and harnessing our understanding of the life /death/life cycle , we can partner with the natural environment as an ally in our creative endeavors.  Once we know the cycle we see it everywhere.  Mystic Woman partners with the seasonal wheel and the moon to gain insight and guidance through the creative process. It offers a place to explore, imagine, harness and connect with the sacred creative within and among community through play, imagination, ritual and the arts. It provides tools for the intentional and intuitive connection to the cyclical wheel of creative expression which can be applied in a myriad of ways. Once the dance of Mystic Woman is held in the body and spirit, we can lean into the wheel of life and create with intention and support.
