INTRODUCTION TO MAKING SACRED ART WORKSHOP IN LONDON
22 - 23 January 2021, non-residential
(Please note that this is a Friday-Saturday course!)
This workshop introduces the Medieval concept of a Human Life as a Pilgrimage. We work with the glyph of a labyrinth representing our ‘umbilical cord to Source/Spirit’ laid out in spiral form in the room. We start unraveling personal myths and weaving healing stories with the help of great gods and goddesses. We meet ‘The Woman Who Repairs Stories’. We start engaging with the concept of ‘The Leavings of the Wolf’ (and the teachings of the Norse God Tyr): i.e. the understanding of personal sacrifice in return for knowledge and spiritual strength. We start mapping where we have given power away and we start moving from the concept of the ‘scapegoat’ to making a ‘shape coat’: a personal medicine cloak of personal symbols that reflects our learning journey through life and our soul’s mission. We make sacred art in honour of something greater than ourselves and beings other than ourselves.
"This was my first experience of being taught by Imelda. It was rich, nourishing, inspiring and profound. Imelda created a beautiful physical space, a safe emotional container and lifted the veil to allow us to explore beyond this reality. There were so many techniques and experiences packed into two days, but at no point did the work feel rushed. I would recommend Imelda as a teacher and this workshop to anyone wishing to embark on or deepen their journey into Shamanic practices."
