Robert Johnson states in Owning Your Own Shadow that some of the pure gold of our personality is relegated to the shadow because it can find no place in that great leveling process that is culture. For women, this seems to be especially true. How about owning our shadows and therefore owning our power.
Our love was a raven
It delivered the dark gift
My soul awaited patiently
Like a bricklayer for his stone
Muddy woman in the shadow.
She does not hide, rather yet waits…
standing proudly in the darkness,
for you to find your reflection in her.
Vivien’s spiritual path began in childhood when she would have conversations with the trees and play with the wind. Her interests led her to pursue a Master’s in Women’s Spirituality and a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Religion.
Vivien has been initiated as both a stick and voice diviner. She is also working on restoring her personal spiritual lineage, which traces back to the Delphic Oracle in Greece, as well as understanding her ancestral connection with the Fae of the British Isles.
In addition to her medicine work, Vivien is also an experienced teacher who has worked in public school, designed and taught a women’s mythology course, given lectures at various religious studies conferences, and is a published writer.
Strega Tree sat down with Vivien and asked her a few questions.
