Stepping through the pain to find peace and the gifts 

Whether the Sorrow or Grief is a result of loss from a loved one’s passing (human or animal), a divorce /separation/or break up, becoming an “Empty Nester,” a retirement …or from so many other possibilities – Grief real in the sense that it IS what we feel, and it is painful.  This Intentional Creativity gives an option for the griever to allow the movement of this energy that is held within.  Through the creative process (of which there is no experience necessary) we are often able to access information and healing potentials in ways that we don’t often see.  We will also use this time in honoring all ancestors that have come before us.

RELEASING GRIEF FROM LOSS – 

FRIDAY AND SATURDAY – April 17 and 18.  Friday 6:30-9:30 and Saturday 9:30-6:30

$195 includes all materials (though if you have your own favorite brushes – you are welcome to bring them.  And if you have a special journal you write in – you are encouraged to bring that as well.)  We will have snacks and yummy chocolate and invite you to bring a brown bag lunch for Saturday.

This is an Intentional creativity workshop to explore and release grief that is being held within.  Whether grief comes from the loss of a loved one through their passing, a divorce, separation, becoming an empty nester, transitioning from working to retirement or any other form of loss – it can all hold a place of grief in our body and/or psyche.  Indeed – grief is a normal and necessary part of our lives.  Grief, along with all other emotions, is also energy.  It is when energy gets stuck without the continuance of its flow that havoc can be wreaked upon on body and our lives.

This gentle workshop tends to be very profound in its effects and results.  Through journaling, journeying, painting and more we allow the messages to come forth to make peace with the loss(es) in our lives.  No painting experience necessary.  Call 208 343 5532 with any questions.

May 6-7 – The Magical Mandala with the Sacred Feminine

The ancient Mandala allows a deep connection of the inner part of you with the greater energy that is all around us (and in us)  – some might use the terms – connecting us with our soul – or connecting our inner self with the Great Spirit —  whatever the terminology or understanding that works for you – is fine.  The Mandala (sacred circle) is in all cultures and all religions in one form or another and has been documented back to the “cave” days.

In this workshop we will be combining the Mandala and its mysteries and magic with the sacred feminine that is in us all – deepening the wisdom and gifts offered by the creative process.  No experience is necessary.
