At the Crossroads: Navigate Your Second Saturn Return with the Wisdom of Baba Yaga 

Between our late fifties and early sixties, we enter the crossroad time known as the second Saturn Return, a significant psychospiritual rite of passage that marks the end of a cycle in our lives, while conversely marking the beginning of a new phase, that of the Crone, or Wisdom Keeper.


This transpersonal threshold marks a turning point where inner promptings and outer events call us to reassess our values and sense of purpose.

But while it’s true that we now step into a different phase of life which can sometimes bring fear or apprehension, viewing it through a mythopoeic lens can be a deeply spiritual and empowering way to approach this crossroads. 

As we step across this threshold, we are called to embrace the Crone. In this workshop, we will be working with the Slavic Crone goddess, Baba Yaga, as our guide.

Wise Teacher, Keeper of the Mysteries and Iniatrix, Baba Yaga is a powerful guide that reminds us that autumn has its own rich beauty, and the second Saturn return can be a time of profound meaning, unexpected enchantment, and possibility.

In this workshop, you will learn the archetypal themes that tend to arise at this juncture, as well as ways to navigate the second Saturn return so you can distill your life experience into a potent decoction that is yours alone to claim.
