      CALL OF THE BLACK MADONNA

      Throughout history, the Black Madonna has presided over fertility, sexuality and childbirth. She is nature impregnated by spirit…. She has to do with the sacredness of matter…. Rejected by the patriarchy, her energy has been smoldering. It is now erupting in individuals and in the planet, demanding conscious recognition. Integrating what she symbolizes involves the redemption of matter.                                                                 - Marion Woodman, Conscious Femininity   Uncertain times invite an inquiry that reaches toward the archetypal world for images and symbols that are large enough to offer meaning and hold the turmoil of the personal and collective worlds.  Black Madonna figures are ancient, powerful, and beloved, as well as an integral part of their landscapes and cultures. This afternoon we will offer an overview enriched with history, legends, and imagery, and the exploration of the presence and symbolic meaning of the Black Madonna. We are particularly interested in sharing how to bring her wisdom and energy into the inner, personal world.     PATTY FLOWERS As Continuing Education Specialist at University of California Extension, Santa Cruz, Flowers directed programs in the arts, humanities, health & healing, and psychology, including Jungian programs, and international study tours.
