‘DANCING WITH THE ANCESTORS- a Journey into the Wild Centre of Creativity' Shamanic Creativity Retreat for Women with Eva Weaver Art Therapist, Coach, Artist, Shamanic Practitioner
‘As I cultivate my nature, all else follows.’ Ralph Blum
Friday 30th of October- 1st of Nov 2009 at Tilton House, Firle, near Lewes
This Retreat offers a safe and exciting space to dive fully into the centre of our creativity to celebrate your unique expressions through the ancient practice of the shamanic journey, ritual, mask, creative media, dance and working with and in nature.
Tapping into the energy of this special time of Samhain/ Halloween/ All Souls when the ‘veil between the world is thinnest’, the end of summer and beginning of the Celtic New Year, this retreat will support you to:• strengthen the connection to your creative power;• sensitively work with possible obstacles and hesitations we might encounter;• explore tools to ground creativity in our lives and establish daily practice;• make space to honour, celebrate and affirm your unique creative talents and expressions within a circle of women.
Being led by the shamanic journey we will ground the teachings in working with creative media such as clay, mask-work, dance, painting, writing and Ritual. We will also work closely with the beautiful environment in and around Tilton house. We will go on a ‘walk with intention’ and, weather permitting, will create a fire ritual of release and affirmation.
You do not need any artistic skills or experience in any creative media only an openness to explore your own creative potential. There will be an introduction to shamanic work and shamanic journeying in the beginning of the retreat, however some previous experience in shamanicwork is helpful, as this workshop it is not primarily an in-depth introduction to Shamanism and shamanic practice. I am happy to offer an introduction to shamanic journeying with a concessionary rate before the retreat.
Shamanism is the oldest spiritual life way holding the view that all things are connected and everything that exists has a living spirit.Shamanic practice is a path of the heart, which helps us to connect more deeply and fully with ourselves, with other people, nature, our creativity and with spirit-helpers in various forms. Through the way of the shamanic journey we ask for help, advice, knowledge or healing and after receiving the requested help we look at how these teachings can be integrated into everyday life.
