Reclaiming our Stories of Empowerment – Jacqui Bushell

Jacqui Bushell has been dancing with the mythic imagination for much of her life. She weaves plant spirit alchemy, energetic healing, embodiment practices, journey work, and storytelling, with archetypal wisdom held in fairy tales that give voice to the land. For three decades, she has been guiding exploration into personal mythology at the borderlands of psyche, body, and culture, in women’s circles, ceremonies, retreats, and workshops in Australia and internationally for 30 years. We discuss how the earliest myths and fairy tales bridge our disconnect from nature, calling forth our instinctual wisdom and embodied power. Comparing tales old, new, and those adapted to our time, we look at the underlying messages, and how the Brothers Grimm and Disney added their own imprints. Most recently, we see women in new roles. “It’s time for women to reclaim these stories and the magical, mythical and empowered roles within,” says Jacqui, and we hear that come to life in her retelling of the oldest recorded versions of “Red Riding Hood” and other well-known tales.
