Rabbits, rabbits, everywhere! Spring has sprung and we’re celebrating the ultimate symbol of vitality and prosperity for this time of year – the hare.
Delighted to have joining us from Emeryville, a special guest who has delved deeply into the archetypal energy of rabbit:
200 Hares series. The hare has a rich history in folklore around the world. There are stories that tell of it’s courage and fear, its relationship to and use by the moon as a messenger to earth; the hare is associated with the Sun, fertility, the dawn, and even seen as a trickster.
The series “200 Hares” began, for Yvette, as she observed how family members were frozen when faced with their fears. It grew to include her own fears and actions. These hares are contemplative of everyday experiences and endeavors; they question themselves as they begin to face their fears, relationships and routines. They pray, and realize that they are prey…
“200 Hares” wrestles with darkness as it gives way to light and humor. The pieces weave back and forth provoking the sobriety and joy that is emotional and physical growth.
Wait! There’s more!
Yvette doesn’t only do hares. Some other animals are coming to the party:
