Who is Persephone?
Persephone is the Queen of the Underworld in Greek Mythology.
Her journey takes her from being a maiden hanging with her BFF’s on Earth when suddenly and swiftly she is taken to the Underworld by Hades (God of the Underworld).
There she goes through a power transformation, literally merging with death.
She then arises back up to what I think of as the Over-world (Earth) six months of the yea, which heralds spring. The six months she spend in the Underworld is associated with Winter.
The reason Persephone is such a powerful archetype and guide for women experiencing illness is because while she is suddenly taken to the Underworld and life as she knows it is changed for ever, and even though she comes face to face with death – she actually becomes deeply empowered through this process and rises back into the world as a Queen.
Our community is full of very real women, who continue to navigate the extreme demands of serious illness, who turn up every day to courageously face diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. We do not apologise for feeling unwell.
We believe we can have a positive relationship with ourselves while living with serious illness.
We know we have immense talents, gifts and wisdom to offer this world.
We are the majestic ones, who do not shy from the difficult experience but rather understand that our vulnerability and our power are interwoven.
We choose to move from surviving to thriving and flourish in our lives, all the while having a nap in the afternoon if we need to.
Michelle Irving is best known for guiding women into the Sacred Power of Illness.
Michelle gets it. While bed-bound twice in the past decade, she mastered the practical demands of work, insurance, medical appointments and relationship dynamics. She also immersed herself in mythology, mysticism and embodiment teachings. She emerged with an understanding of the deeply spiritual dimension of serious illness.
She now mentors women around the world, teaching them to harness the Sacred Power of Illness. She keeps it real. In her forthright style, she provides practical relationship and self-care strategies for the whole illness journey from diagnosis to survivorship.
Michelle is driven by a mission to de-shame and transform conversations around illness. She has created a methodology for women to claim the precious power that lies at the heart of any underworld journey, knowing it calls them into deep feminine wisdom and maturity.
Her work is underpinned by extensive professional development in the emerging survivorship care sector. She has completed training with the Australian Cancer Survivorship Centre and The University of Melbourne Primary Practitioner Survivorship Training.
