Saturday, June 26, 2010 - 14:00 to 20:00

'Awakening the Virgin Archetype' is the first workshop since the launch of Kim Hudson's new book, The Virgin's Promise. This new story structure describes stories of bringing your dream to life. The Virgin archetype sets out on a path of self-fulfillment despite the wishes of her community. She must explore her creative, spiritual, or sexual awakening or suffer sever psychological damage. Equally used for male and female protagonists, it is the structure in films such as Fight ClubPreciousPretty WomanEver AfterBrokeback Mountain, and Rocky.

About the Author Kim Hudson

Kim Hudson grew up in the Yukon, as a Hero's daughter with a Cinderella Complex. She began exploring her feminine side as she raised two daughters, studied Writing for Film & Television at Vancouver Film School, and took courses on mythology, feminism and psychology including Jungian Odyssey in Switzerland.  Her theory was developed by closely observing the archetypal expressions in movies, music, TV shows, ads, and stories.  The Virgin's Promise is Hudson's first book.
