The ancient mythic story of Eros and Psyche tracks the initiatory journey of the Sacred Marriage through sacrifice, loss, labor and redemption to claim our deeper selves. The myth provides a portal for the exploration of our inner world and guides us on a path of discernment leading to our own unique place in the universe. It offers the tasks each of us requires to bring love to our souls. The joining of Eros (love) and Psyche (soul) brings forth new life.
