Myth Embodiment Workshop: The Þrymskivða


This workshop will focus on the Þrymskviða (aka, How Thor Got His Hammer Back). Myth embodiment is a depth psychology tool that has been used in healing families and communities, but it can also be a powerful tool for gaining a deeper insight into myths. After all, what are myths but stories about the dynamics of the families of the Gods? Through reenacting this myth, we will get an experiential view of the relationships between the different Powers That Be in Norse mythology. This activity is specifically not meant to be scripted, so as to allow space for as many opinions, point of views, and nuances as possible. No acting experience is needed--just a willingness to give your input and opinions and to act silly if the part calls for it. (Note: The part will probably call for it.)
