The Artist and The Shaman

Shamans are not only healers, they are musicians, dancers, storytellers, visionaries, and artists.

The arts have a capacity to manifest the impossible, the invisible, and the unknown. They can visualize and then make the fantastic real.

  • Explore the interface of the transformative power of shamanic art and the artist as shaman.
  • Learn about the Mysterious Meeting: shamanic dreams, intuition, and sacred relationship of the Bonded Couple as the Artist and the Shaman.
  • Uncover the Archetypes of the Shaman and the Poet: the ancient bonds of these archetypes that create the warp and weft of life.
