The Heroine’s Journey

March 13, 2018 @ 10:00 am - May 1, 2018 @ 12:00 pm


Workshop Description

The Heroine's Writing Journey: A Writing Journey into the Heart of the Feminine

The Heroine's Journey is dynamic exploration of aspects of the Feminine Journey through Creative Writing, Meditation and Mythology.

Draws from the work of Maureen Murdock, Sharon Blackie, Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung and Clarissa Pinkola Estés.

Some of the Steps of the Journey are:

  • The Separation from the Feminine,
  • Initiation and Descent to the Goddess,
  • Yearning to reconnect with the Feminine,
  • Healing the Mother/ Daughter split,
  • Healing the Wounded Masculine,
  • Integration of the Masculine and the Feminine,
  • The Heroine's Writing Journey,
  • A Writing Journey into the Heart of Creativity

The facilitator is a published author, travel writer and blogger and member of the Teaching Council of Ireland. Siofra has facilitated writing workshops in schools, prisons, homes for the intellectually challenged, old folks homes and independently from the Novara Centre Bray and Thornfield House for the last 12 years. She was Writer in Residence in Louth from 2004-5.

A New Departure from the Hero's Journey, this Writing Journey brings you to the heart of your creative, feminine spirit, through creative writing.


Siofra creates an informal and safe space to talk, meditate and write based on ideas coming from the Heroine's journey. As a group, we are surprising ourselves with the personal depths we are diving to, and all in a unique way. The environment is very encouraging and whatever you bring is enough. I would highly recommend this workshop.

I have taken many writing journeys with Siofra over the past number of years and I keep coming back for more because each time, I find new threads to explore in my own tapestry. siofra has a very special gift in being able to guide people towards their own deep, intuitive knowing, while allowing them the space to express their individual creativity. I highly recommend any of her writing courses. Enjoy the trip!
