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 oneself to be led to a dream state, and thus experience an altered state of consciousness. 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 journeys and painting. No prior experience with painting or shamanic journey work is necessary.
