Delving into the somatic and emotional experience of the world’s first known lesbian community we will explore Sappho’s poems, body and love language, elixirs, adornments, and love gifts.
We will also analyse ancient Greek words in Sappho’s poetry you already know (without knowing) and you will be guided to create your own erotic poems with some of Sappho’s words.
Finally, you will be introduced to the Greek Alphabet and Goddess Yoga (easy standing expressive poses) in order to embody their archetypical energy.
There are a total of 3 Women Sacred Roots workshops:
- Women Sacred Roots: Greek Love and Ecstatic Dances (12th Sept.)
- Women Sacred Roots: Embodied Erotic Poetry and Greek Somatic Alphabet (17th Sept.)
- Women Sacred Roots: Botanic Mythological Walk and Aphrodisiac Elixirs (19th Sept.)
About Dimitra Kamarinou
My initial goal was to delve into Greece’s spirit and nature. Therefore, I have studied Archaeology at Ioannina University, Greece and in Germany and I have hiked on the Greek mountains to explore the habitats of the wild flora. Conducting my PhD in Heritage Education (both environmental and cultural) I have developed the skills needed to develop experience-based programs. I have carried out a post-doctoral research (post doc) at the British School of Archaeology in Athens and in 2006 I was honoured with the prize of the Academy of Athens for my work in Archaeology.
My life path led me to realise the importance of the excavation into one’s self get into a 4 years study of Somatic Psychotherapy. Today, combining the knowledge from the three fields (Archaeology, Ecology and Somatic Psychotherapy) I lead experience-based workshops in archaeological sites and in the nature for international public with the aim of soul healing, embodied spirituality, women empowerment, connections and self-awareness within a group and communicating ideas from the ancient Greek culture that are meaningful today.
