Myths are often thought of as dreams that arise within a tribe, region, nation, or religion. Certain types of myths are universal in their themes, while certain groups produce mythscapes that reflect the unique aspects of their natural environment or history. Fairy tales can be thought of as a type of myth in that they tend to combine mythic themes into cultural lore.
The Handless Maiden is a fairytale about a miller and his daughter. It is a fairytale about a king and his queen. It is a story about a certain trickster some call the devil, and certain helpers some call angels. It is a story about a severe wounding and the origins of true healing. But mostly it is a story about a young woman and her transformative journey.
We will discuss this tale over three sessions. All seminars are held on Wednesdays from 8 to 9:30 pm.
April 23: The Miller and His Bargain
May 21: Of What Use Are Silver Hands

This series is taught by Katrina Messenger, a full time mystic, and founder of Reflections Mystery School. Katrina works extensively with mythology, dreamwork, ritual, and trance as means of self-exploration, self-healing, and self-evolution. Katrina believes that any attempt to change the external world must be paired with the inner work of a personal spiritual practice.
