Create Your Own Sacred Symbol
Saturday, October 31 10am-1pm Pacific Time
(included in registration for SANCTUARY as well as EROS)
Kristen Myers leads us on a creative journey, guiding us through the process of creating a personal Medicine Shield. Magic happens when we, as creators, bring the invisible into form. For centuries, we have created maps of consciousness in spoken, song, movement, and visual forms. These sacred art forms serve as helpers, teachers, reminders to reorient us to the truth of who and what we are. A medicine shield is a personally channeled symbol, created in prayer by listening with our hearts and hands. This is your unique empowering symbol in the world. Different from a symbol found in a book somewhere, this is a symbol born through you, of your essence, and in your language. It holds the frequency of your prayers and intentions. You will learn how to channel the energies of your essence to create a personal Medicine Shield to anchor your medicine and bless your altar and sanctuary space. Kristen will guide you in a process creating sacred space and opening your channel, connecting with your creative essence to receive your Medicine Shield. She will also facilitate a process to receive and fully listen to your shield. You will then have your beautiful Medicine Shield to continue to dialogue with over time. This class is for all experience levels with art! Creating in the moment, we discover our language as we go.
In this 3-hour class you will:
create sacred symbols of your own
Receive help tapping into your creativity
find a refreshing approach to picture making
Experience ritual and art making
Dive deeper into intuitive art
