The need for ecstasy is as imperative as the need for food. Civilizations of antiquity were aware of this and the postures seen in ancient art are doorways into ecstasy. This workshop will use those postures to open a creative avenue from deep within each of us. Write a poem, sing, dance draw, sculpt, act…explore, following whatever path the postures reveal for you. Then we will come together and weave a tapestry of art acknowledging our place in the universe. Join us for what we know will be a powerful experience. Through art, we acknowledge the vision and gifts received from Spirit, enjoying the flow of bountiful creativity.

You may be surprised at the wisdom and power that comes to you.

You will learn the five fundamental steps in the practice of ecstatic trance and how to use a series of ritual postures for healing, guidance, change and celebration. Our spirit journeys in the posture will be shared verbally, in journals and through our artistic creations. Join us for this creative immersion at Cuyamungue, a special time and place.

Oil pastels and paper provided, and bring your own favorite materials if you’d like. Talks by visiting and participating artists. Stephanie Stephens is a musical theatre director to guide us in song and dance.

Mandala as Magic Circle
Cynthia Devlin leads us in the process of creating a mandala,  a way to reflect your inner self.  This is an opportunity to create personal mandalas (“sacred circles” in Sanskrit) to facilitate insight, healing and self-expression. Creating your own mandala has been found to be very transformative and a way to gain clarity in ones life.

No art experience is needed to participate. Done in a non-judgmental atmosphere, connect with your intuitive level and see what manifests from within as you create your mandala.
