The Spiritual Path of Shamanism - Healing and Ceremony - Artwork
Monday, 15 August 2011
I didn't realise till I was looking back through my computer the other day that what I thought was a failed attempt at recording sunset colours was actually a picture of a heart drawn by the trees here !
Shamanism is my spiritual path, that means asking Whatever-You-Call-It / the Great Mystery/ the Divine / Great Spirit / the Universe / the oneness / God.. via my spirit helpers, for help , & meditating & listening more & more to what comes in reply... learning to be a link for this help to reach myself &
others. The natural world is one of
the greatest teachers we have, & with the horror of seeing ourselves possibly instrumental in destroying it comes a new urgency in humbly asking for help ... the full picture is so much bigger that we can see, and we are held in love .. what is this paradox ?? A beautiful, hideous, shattering, enriching journey, requiring that we open our hearts again & again .. this is what inspires my work whether as an artist , an ordained OneSpirit celebrant and counsellor , or a sacred clown ....
