This year is a continuation of 2 ongoing projects. One an exploration of feminine myths, stories and poems that reflect the sacred in ancient times but also still have a strong resonance within our contemporary lives in a sacred, secular or psychological way. Secondly an exploration of the ancient art of Alchemy with Jungian reflections. These 2 projects converge in many ways.
