* Discuss how myth and story help us deal with the trauma and abuse we have endured in our lives.
* Elements in Celtic myth which give us insight into how society normalizes abuse and exploitation - such as the "slandered wife" archetype.
* Which archetypes or stories in the Celtic Goddess deck lend themselves to recognizing trauma/abuse and lack of self-worth in our lives or the lives of others?
Om Sekhmet by Abigail Spinner McBride
Judith Shaw, a New Orleans native and graduate of the San Francisco Art Institute, has always been interested in myth, culture and mysticism. Her work, inspired by nature and ancient wisdom traditions, combines whimsy and the esoteric. Shaw's work is layered and textured with paint and ancient symbols. Her inspirations come from the ancient wisdom and visual symbols of many cultures. Shaw's intent is to present a vision of a world that lives in balance - a world in which the the connection between all life is recognized
and honored - a world in which the physical is recognized as a manifestation of the spiritual.
In addition to her oil paintings on canvas Shaw also creates illustrated oracle decks and
fairytales. The Celtic Goddess Oracle was published in 2017 and Animal Wisdom Oracle just came out in December, 2022. Her work has been used on book covers, in calendars and exhibited in San Francisco, Athens, New York, Taos, New Orleans, Santa Fe and Albuquerque and can be found in private collections worldwide.
