Explorations In Consciousness
In this workshop, students will experience a medicine journey with paint and canvas as the medium. Students will explore their creativity, self-expression and inner landscape with the opportunity to bring healing to areas of life that are important to them.
Students will be guided with prompts to take them deeper into their creative and healing process opening into freedom of expression. They will be supported to make contact with spirit guides and healing ancestors through the painting process, as well as through journaling, journeying and wanders on the land.
The purpose of this workshop is not to create a finished piece in particular but rather to open one's awareness, expand one's consciousness and to receive messaging only possible through the creative-spiritual realm.
The Archetype of The Lover
One of the greatest creative expressions we have is the creation of ourselves and our own lives.
So often people get pulled into living lives that are not authentic to them. It is so easy to live according to artificial constructs of time that are not in rhythm with one's own body and wellness. It is so easy to get pulled into multi-tasking and efficiency, care-taking and expectation. Feelings of guilt and selfishness can arise at the idea of living in the flow of pleasure, creativity, awareness and aliveness.
The archetype of The Lover invites us back into flow, back into relationship with ourselves, with pleasure, with sensuality and with Life.
But this class is not all about pleasure. For students of this workshop, exploration of the Lover also opened the fields of body awareness, one's relationship with sexuality, aging, motherhood, creativity, spirituality, religion, food, appetite, life purpose and self worth.
Ultimately, this workshop is more than a painting class. It is about making contact with The Lover within, rewriting self-limiting narratives, and creating an image on canvas that reflects one's true being.
