 2-DAY INTRODUCTION COURSE TO MAKING SACRED ART

A two day workshop in London, facilitated by Imelda Almqvist assisted by Olivia Woodhouse

on Friday 23 March and Saturday 24 March 2017, 0 am – 5 pm

Cost: £150, deposit £25

1 place left 

This workshop introduces ways of making sacred art and invites people to start making their own sacred art. This course does not require great skills in drawing and painting, only an open heart and sincere willingness to engage in making spirit-led art.

People are invited to bring their own materials and not necessarily focus (only) on painting and drawing. In past workshops we have also had people dancing, writing poems, carving wood and doing pyrography, writing songs and playing the piano ... and so forth

My newsletter is unfailingly the most up-to-date source for new courses and retreats as I always announce courses to my current audience before I get around to listing anything on this website 

The first sacred art retreat in London has just been set for July 2018. Please see the listing for "Becoming a Crucible, Working With The Poison Mother" nearer the top of this page.

If you are interested in Sacred Art I also invite you to keep an eye out for the publication of my new book (late Autumn 2018, an exact publication date has not yet been set):

THE TIME TRAVELERS
Shamanic Program For Young People

The Time Travelers "graduated" in July 2017!

By now these young people are so spiritually aware and eloquent that the plan is for them to become shamanic teachers in their own right! In reality this means that they will do projects as a Focus Group or Spiritual Task Force - but I will no longer run sessions as I have been doing for 5 years.

The Time Travelers are presenting a film on Year of Ceremony this monrth for Sounds True.They have also worked with me on my presentation for the Shamanism Global Summit  in 2016 and 2017.

I see my own key task now as supporting and preparing others as they step into this work. I am thrilled to see how many people are starting shamanic initiatives for young people, all over the world!  Please check out my Facebook Group:
