In January 2011 I was invited to give a talk about my work with Spirit Children in Geneva. This was to mark the occasion of my shamanic practitioner colleague Jackie Teoh's launch of Living Resonance. Jackie and I were a little concerned how my work with the spirits of dead children would "go down". However, we both felt the paintings made to honour spirit children were beautiful and their stories deserved to be told. On that day we had a room full of people and many of them came up to me for a private conversation after the talk/presentation. We used a beemer to project photographs of the paintings on the wall behind me, so the spirit children appeared to 'stand behind me', as I spoke. As things turned out, most people present in that room had a connection to a dead child. (In shamanic terms you would say: they all had an 'appointment' to be there that day). People told me about stilborn babies, abortions, dead siblings, cousins and miscarriages. They all said: " I had no idea it was possible to do this kind of work, to make a painting of the spirit of a dead child". They were referring in particular to children lost before the parents could take a photograph or even treasure a scan (ultra sound) picture as physical 'proof' the child ever existed.
I made this video in 2014. It was my first video creation and imperfect - but sincere.
