Demeter / Ceres

Demeter / Persephone An archetype of healing. Like our own wounded inner child, Persephone had been abducted into the dark Hades of her unconscious patterns and process. She was lovingly searched for and assisted by Demeter, her mentoring mother. Their annual reunion, depicted here, was celebrated by the Greeks as the Rite of Spring. Illumined by the torch of insight, Persephone has returned to the upper world; Demeter blesses her with a sheaf of grain symbolizing nurture and renewal. This image offers a powerful metaphor for the psychotherapeutic process.
