Awakening the Inner Artist is the Awakening of the Soul’s Creative Powers.
Whether you are a seasoned artist or beginner, Katherine will lay out how to work with the materials, how to work with color, symbolism, and intention to connect to your essence, as well as how to connect to and paint the vision and essence of your Inner Creative Spark. You will enter a safe and sacred space for diving deep into your creativity and imagination, to open the doorway to visioning, and how to bring that to a canvas.
What is the Course About?
With guided meditations, shamanic journey spaces, and various ways to enter the stillness of our ‘within spaces”, we all journey into the archetypal energies of the Inner Artist, Shaman, Healer and Sage through a six month deep dive. This exploration will include looking at various symbol systems offered in the course — dream symbols, archetypal symbols, animal totems, angelic symbols, plant symbols, numerology, and any expanse of symbols that awaken your internal landscape, where you begin to recognize your soul symbols are reflected to you in your waking life dream, as well as your night dream. Exploration will offer the awakening each student desires, and is then able to communicate through their creative genius.
In class, and at home, you will be guided, encouraged, and supported to explore this through study, reflection and meditation, night dream and day dream symbol recording, writing and journaling, as well as sketching and painting between classes. By deepening into these spaces, you will open your subconscious library of symbols as well as intuitive, psychic spaces. Through your creative exploration you will increase your capacity as one who awakens in the dream, learning to lucidly shift your reality, and to understand the messages that come in waking and dreaming spaces. Your art, your writing, your words, and your awareness will open as portals to conscious expression.
It is time we awaken and use our creativity in ways that bring greater joy and light into our realities. You were born for this!
Creativity and Curiosity
With canvas, paint, and the power of your curiosity, we will explore your soul’s inner symbol system, awakening your intuitive creativity, and its power to support you in creating the life you want.
What if you could create a more loving, exciting, peace-filled, and abundant life? What if you can edit our life story and empower yourself as story teller and story maker? Are you ready to expand your story into greater harmony, love, and joy? Awakening the Inner Artist is an experience of Awakening Your Soul Spark. There is nothing more important than realizing you are the Creative Spark who directs your life.
Everyone of us is a creative being. If you don’t think of yourself as an artist, it is time to reconsider that you are born a creative being, even if you don’t draw, paint, sing, dance or such. You imagine and create your life each day. It is within you. It drives your choices and responses to the world. Becoming aware of this divine spark within your very being is part of your journey to awakening your true nature. With intention, curiosity, and the courage to show up, you have the opportunity to awaken and engage this divine spark in your every day consciousness. This weekend is a time to connect to your Divine Inner Artist Spark, and bring her forth.
Your Imagination and Childlike Wonderment
This course helps to cultivate a safe and creative space to return to your innocence and purity where your Childlike Wonderment and Imagination can flourish again. Are you tired of the adulting? Are you ready to laugh again, and move into the freedom of play? How would you like to imagine again?
There will be time to clean and clear the energies that are born of old worn out stories that no longer can go on the ride of our lives. As we sacredly release through the power of sacred destruction and paint, we can add color, hope, and wonderment back into our stories of creation. With intention, courage, and freedom to color our canvases with free flowing energy and form, we redirect the patterns of our lives into greater beauty and harmony. The external canvas and paint we use is the holographic expression of our soul changing directions into greater alignment with our soul path that is harmonious and joyful once again.
Reclaim the Power to Boldly Make a Stroke on the Canvas of Your Life
Through the intuitive painting process, shamanic journey and meditation, prayer, intention, and art play, gain a greater sense of your power to create the life you want. Imagine your life as the canvas of your soul, the place where you add color, pattern and form each day through your intention, or lack there of. This course supports you in becoming more intentional and conscious of how you direct the life you have to live. It will also support you in ‘painting out’ the parts you may not experience as in alignment, so you can ‘recreate and paint anew’ your life in ways that sing and express the true song of your soul.
