About this work:

In the process of artistically working with our shamanic tools, we are strengthening our relationship with its spirit. Our consciousness expands and we become more receptive to the messages they communicate to us.

In these group we will start by connecting and honouring the artist within through a Shamanic journey where we will also deepen our relationship and communicate with our tools. We will empower our tools by allowing their filaments to touch our heart and our filaments to touch their heart.
