Mindfulness Through Art: Sekmhet, Warrior and Goddess of Healing
This virtual class explores the theme of how, despite the potentially destructive nature of our past, we can evolve into a powerful force of creative expression.
The goddess Sekhmet is one of the oldest and most powerful of the legendary Egyptian deities. As the daughter of Ra, God of the Sun, she was brought to life to maintain justice and uphold the law…which came at fierce, and very violent, cost.
It’s said that her priests were masters in the healing arts. Which would make sense as she had a great deal of carnage to resolve once her wrath was complete. It seems to be that many humans have significant amounts of collateral damage to deal with once we’ve sabotaged our lives out of misunderstanding and rage.
Yet in those times of rebuilding, we learn to heal and support others in the process.
Sekhmet went on to marry Ptah, the creator god who created humans through the power of heart coherence, and birthed a son, Nefertum, the god of sunrises. Talk about a beautiful transformation of life!
When we look in on our own lives, we see the BIGGEST lessons come from the TOUGHEST times. This is what we learn from Sekhmet…the fine balance between breakdown and breakthrough.
This is a two-part class starting on March 4th.
