The Abduction of Kore: Transformation and Birth of a Queen
The ancient myth of Demeter and Kore is an enduring tale of loss and return within the realm of the feminine. It links us to the cycle of death and rebirth, marked for hundreds of years by the archaic ritual of the Eleusinian Mysteries. The motif of the abduction of Kore by Hades, and the ensuing devastation resulting from Demeter’s rage and grief at the loss of her daughter, is a potent and timely story, relating to our individual, personal lives as well as to the outer world. In this lecture we will hone in on the experience of the abduction of Kore, imagine into the transformation which occurs in the underworld, and celebrate her return. We will ponder the deep meaning found in the archetypal figures and events of the tale, thereby developing a greater understanding of our own individual abductions, as well as the widespread loss of the feminine in our world.
