Ereshrikal is the Mesopotamian Queen of the Dead who rules the underworld. She is the older sister of Inanna who journeys into the underworld passing through seven gates. At each gate Inanna is required to shed a layer of clothing bringing her closer to her truest self. Ereshrikal's medicine is one of transformation. She provides opportunities for extremely powerful shadow work through going deep within and shedding that which is not completely necessary for growth and integration. Her mentorship requires immense strength and perseverance, providing incredible depth for those who choose to work with her.
