Goddesses in the Dust: How an Archaeologist is like Persephone
An archaeologist unearths the divine feminine, one archetype at a time...
Throughout my childhood I've loved being close to the earth.
In my nightmare, I also fell into an Underworld against my will. But like Persephone, I soon learned to see in the darkness, and now I go willingly.
I have eaten many pomegranate seeds. and I return again and again to this soil.
At excavations I have stood at the edge and looked out over the site, aware that the holes are getting deeper by the day.
the more I can hear Persephone speak to me, telling me not to be afraid to pass through thresholds
because - as in the earth - it is often in the hidden parts of our selves that we find our treasure.
