Description
This class introduces making sacred or spirit-led art using shamanic techniques. How to hollow out and push aside the human ego so we can engage with cosmic forces greater than ourselves.

We discuss what makes sacred art different from contemporary art. We talk about the governing principles behind Medieval art. We will work with a finger labyrinth.

We learn how move into a mildly altered state of consciousness and dance with what seeks expression through us. In this state writer's block or artist's block do not exist!
Pre-requisites
An open mind! All welcome!

About Creator
Imelda Almqvist is a Dutch shamanic painter, practitioner and teacher based in London, UK. She has "walked between worlds" all of her life. Her calling is "making invisible worlds accessible to others" through art, shamanic work and ceremony. Imelda teaches courses in sacred art, shamanism and ancestral healing work internationally. "The difference between contemporary art and sacred art is that contemporary art tends to reflect a fragmented world with a focus on personal stories. Sacred art is made in honour of beings and powers greater than ourselves and it shows the heart of divine mystery that animates the cosmos and dreams our world into being." Since 2012 Imelda has pioneered a shamanic group program for children and teenagers called The Time Travellers. She is currently writing a book about this titled "Natural Born Shamans". She is also working on a picture book introducing shamanic healing work to young children and their families, called "The Dream Healer". Her youngest son Brendan published a book about shamanism when he was just 9 years old. The title is "The Love Hall, Brendan's Travel Guide to the best places in the Spirit World".
