A weekend workshop for artists exploring ancestral wisdom and animistic practice in the act of creation
A JOURNEY WITHIN AND WITHOUT FOR ARTISTS Date: 08th, 09th & 10th February | Fri, Sat & Sun Time: Fri | 5:30pm - 8:30pm Sat & Sun | 10:30am - 6:00pm Fee: Rs 3,500 Seats: Max 10 ppl Venue: Shoonya Mari For: This weekend is only open to artists working professionally in their fields (be it dance, theatre, visual arts or writing), to those committed to creating art, and through it, a means of balance and healing. This workshop could become the beginning of an ongoing project.
You will explore your own practice through an animist lens. You will be guided to find new connections and resources from the spiritual world to help you create your art. You will be asked to go deeper into your work, examining it as your true self, asking questions of yourself, your perspective, your message, your vision, and also to find the guidance and direction to keep you on your path in harmony and balance.
"Our pottery teaches the Sacred Song of cooking, and each vase wears a necklace of Prayer and Song Luci Tapahonso, Michael Lacapa.
Why do we make art? How do we dissolve into and become Love? What are the shadows we do not see that prevent us from being authentic? We will be shown reflections of ourselves, to find power and faith in our intuition, our inner voice, and song, to keep sharing Truth and Love through our work.
We will deepen our relationship with our inner Soul Song. We will become the dancers, the actors, the painters, the writers, the creators, the storytellers from a balance within. We are celebrating Sacred Life we all are Artists of Sacred Life.
When one is dancing, all the Sounds vibrate within you. The chorus of voices blends with all these elements to make a Song to Heaven. - Tony Chavarria
