Autumn, Persephone, and Embracing Darkness

Autumn, Persephone, and Embracing Darkness

In this blog, the myth of Persephone is examined as a metaphor for our relationship to the seasonal cycles, particularly autumn. The concept of darkness, both the external darkness associated with autumn/winter and the inner darkness many of us experience during these two seasons, is explored as an opportunity for reflection, rest, and ultimately inspiration.
