The Underworld is a metaphor for the Unconscious, where all of our fears and insecurites lie.  It is where our "Dark Side" or Shadow resides.

The Descent of Inanna, an ancient Sumerian myth, informs us of what we must surrender in order to reach the depths of our soul, and what we gain in reward for our courage to embark upon that journey.
