Shamanic Painting With Catherine Steinberg

Shamanic Painting With Catherine Steinberg

Shamanic Painting is a meditative approach to expressing inner images, words, emotions, and sensory experiences with paint on canvas. A shamanic journey consists of listening to a specific drumbeat for about fifteen minutes and allowing yourself to be led to a dream state and thus become more in touch with your unconscious. We will alternate shamanic journeying and longer periods of painting impressions from your journey throughout the day. Painting from this internal perspective can be liberating and exciting. There will be time for writing and group processing of your journey and painting. No prior experience with painting or shamanic journey work is necessary. Suggested pre-read: "Shamanic Journeying" by Sandra Ingerman. Please bring a journal, a bandana and wear comfortable clothing. Limited to 10 participants. Fee includes program and lunch. For materials: you may bring your own painting materials, or presenter will provide them for $10 per person. Please bring payment to the workshop. 

I'm pleased to say that this year's participants will be able to take the workshop a second day to have a richer, deeper experience. Of course you can stay at MBS Saturday night and make a nice weekend of it!
