The Story of Demeter and Persephone


Practicing Hope


In this webinar we’ll tell the story of Greek goddesses Demeter and Persephone, mother and daughter. It’s a disheartening story of loss, hopelessness and powerlessness. A story about abduction, rape and the separation of mother and daughter. It’s also a story of finding new hope in the midst of darkness, of birth following on death. It’s a story about coping. We will explore the various existential themes in the story and how the goddesses (especially focusing on Demeter) may serve as examples to us in modern day life; how we may cope when we find ourselves in disheartening and demoralizing circumstances.
