About this event

Embodied Archetype Workshop - Goddess Brigid

with Lewis Barfoot

Sunday 30th January 2022 - 2pm-6pm

€ 42

Brigid Energy - We will draw upon the wisdom and strength of the Goddess Brigid whose very name means fiery arrow. She is a symbol of feminine power, strength, vigour and virtue. A goddess of healing, poetry and the sun and Matron Saint of Ireland, Brigid, Brigit or Bride can burst open a whole new way of being into your life. She may provide insights into healing, freedom and new paths of creative expression. Her fire is the spark alive in every one of us. Bridget is an earth goddess richly connected and integrated with all the elements. There was a time when the feminine goddesses were honoured and revered. Now is time to re awaken them within ourselves. It is time to stand tall and rise up women.

CONTENT - Join Lewis on a 4hr sacred journey to discover the raw energy of Brigid and how she manifests through your body and voice. Once tapped into we can explore how to use her energies to sharpen our focus, clarity and help decision making from a greater place of authentic truth and power.

ON THE DAY - The workshop will include guided vocal and physical warm ups, group work, movement, free dance, sharing circles, singing simple folk songs, guided visualisations, writing responses and time to share and reflect in confidence with a circle of supportive women.These are empowering, beautiful sessions full of courage and play; suffused with ritual, healing and ceremony in celebration of the divine feminine experience. It is a space to dive into your fullness as a woman and be all you are without judgement or comparison. Suitable for all women, you really don't need to be an "artist" or "performer" to attend they are for all women. We meet in confidence to journey together in sacred circle as a sisterhood.

WHO IS IT FOR? - If you are reading this, then it is probably for you. The workshop is aimed at women, AFAB, female-identified, non-binary people and is trans-inclusive. We meet in confidence to journey together in sacred circle as a sisterhood. The work may may be therapeutic but it is not therapy. It does not involved any plant medicines.

'Archetypal patterns can help us shed light on the dark and little known corners of our souls and amplify our brilliance" Caroline Myss

PREP - You don't need to prepare anything. The workshop is limited 18 participants. Wear something you feel beautiful in and can move in, bring a water bottle, a pad or notebook and pen/pencils.

ABOUT Lewis

I’ve been working with archetypes in performance and healing for over 10 years. Initially I read medicine at Southampton University and worked for 4 years as a medical doctor in the UK hospitals until the call to be creative and approach life from a different paradigm to conventional medicine became so strong that I left my medical career to train as an actor at ALRA in London. I graduated in 2002 and went on to work as an actress, theatre maker and singer performing in classical and contemporary theatre on the fringe, West End and Internationally. In between creative works I would locum as a Doctor in Oncology and Palliative care at the Royal Marsden Hospital in London. But after 11 years of combining the two career the time came to hang up my stethoscope and focus on creativity.

I have created four performances inspired directly by the Archetypes: The History of the Pomegranate (Jackson’s Lane) a solo show drawing on the Persephone myth and her descent into the Underworld. The Seventh Muse (Barbican Theatre, Plymouth) Exploring the seven goddesses in Jean Shinoda Bolen’s “Goddesses in Everywomen”. Harvest Fire (Lemontree, Aberdeen) Inspired by “King, Warrior, Magician, Lover : Rediscovering the Archetypes of the Mature Masculine” By Robert Moore and WILD (Barbican, Plymouth) Drawing inspiration from Clarissa Pinkola Estes “Women Who Run With The Wolves”.

Since 2013 my creative work expanded to include songwriting and recording. In 2016 I launched an EP Catch Me and have gone on to release two single Wise Owl in 2017 and Hecate and in 2018. I recorded my debut album Glenaphuca in 2019 and this will be released in 2020.

MUSIC

Contemporary Folk. Half Irish, half English Lewis works with an uncomplicated loveliness of sound, combining ethereal, evocative vocals with original compositions and reinventions of traditional songs from Ireland and the UK. A timeless & gifted storyteller who transports the listener to strange, magical, otherworldly places.

“What a beautiful, beautiful voice she has, just gorgeous!” - Eve Blair, BBC Radio Ulster

“A balm for the soul” - Lillian Smith, RTÉ Radio 1

Frequently compared to the likes of Ane Brun, Joni Mitchell and Julie Fowlis. Her debut Glenaphuca will be released in March 2021 and has already received great praise from RTÉ 1, FRUK, BBC Radio Ulster and RTÉ na Gaeltachta.

EMBODIED ARCHETYPES WORKSHOPS

Alongside her creative work, Lewis inspires and encourages others to express themselves fully. She runs an empowering workshop series for female identified people exploring 12 of the core female archetypes: Inner Child, Maiden, Huntress, Wild Woman, Warrior, Trickster, Queen, Mother, Creatrix, Lover, Priestess and Crone. As well as specific Goddess workshops including Brigid and the Morrigan.

These workshops allow you to use the Archetypes to help face your fears, release blocked emotions like rage and shame and gain courage and confidence to make new choices in your life. Sharing her skills from years working with the body and voice as well as her background in healing Lewis will share with you how to use the archetypes in their positive pole to support you in all aspects of you life: be that to help you honour your boundaries, take care of your needs, take steps to achieve your goals, speak your truth, say NO and mean it and let go of old patterns and habits that no longer serve. You will also learn about the shadow poles and learn how to stop playing the victim or sabotaging your own life. Sacred, safe and confidential. The workshops involve movement, singing, chanting, sharing, writing responses, reflection, meditation & visualisations
