I continue to explore a spiritual practice that includes shamanic journeys and meditations.
I see these as “Night Travels” as they delve into the Darkness, which I see as being the Mystery where we all meet in Spirit.
My most current work represents the four worlds, Upper, Middle, Lower and Dream.
I portray the Upper World in blacks and whites, the Middle in browns and gold, the Lower in volcanic reds and greens and the Dream in blues.
As Shaman travel to “other” realms for healing purposes and for soul retrieval, it requires tools and at times, altered states.
It may also be necessary for assistance from Allies or “Other” which is represented by the “Elementals” which at times depict the transformation of shape shifting.
Vessels are to contain and keep sacred the harvest from such travels.
Spirit Ships, as well as Magic Carpets, are modes of travel for the Shaman as She quests with Spirit within the depths of these worlds.
Evidence of ceremony and ritual can be experienced by the placement of some of the objects.
