How can we navigate the liminal zone which lies between the world of the human and the other-than-human? How do we become what we are not, without losing who we are? The myths and folk tales of old Europe are populated by men and women who are able to shapeshift into animal form, or perform other fantastical self-transformations. Irish psychologist and mythologist Dr. Sharon Blackie discusses the meaning of these magical metamorphoses, and explores the ways in which these stories connect us directly into the Dreaming of this beautiful animate earth. Sharon will also read from her just-published book of new and reimagined fairy tales: Foxfire, Wolfskin, and Other Tales of Shapeshifting Women (2019), followed by a conversation with Lisa Doron.
Sat 9/14 Workshop with Sharon Blackie: What Ails Thee? Myth, Fairy Tales and the Post-heroic Journey
