Sacred Art: Lilith and Primitive Snake Paintings
Thursday, May 23, 2019
7:00pm – 9:30pm
Connect with your inner sensual power and fires of pure individuality with the wisdom of Lilith, Queen of the Night. Lilith is the embodiment of uninhibited sexual energy, and a symbol of fighting gendered oppression by celebrating the feminine in her deepest, wildest nature. As the snake is a powerful ally of Lilith and often used as a symbol of her magic, Michelle will lead us in creating primitive serpent ‘paintings’. These will be ‘painted’ using pastels and pencils on black paper. Your limited artistic skills will be an advantage as we will be creating from our most wild centers. Offered by Ritualcravt teachers Michelle VanderHouwen and Cooper Kaminsky.
All “Ritual Art” classes will be team taught. Each class will begin in ceremony by opening circle, honoring our chosen goddess and receiving wisdom. We will then create within ceremonial space and finally close circle.
Michelle VanderHouwen is the owner of Oak and Hawthorn and provides the plant babies for Ritualcravt’s annual plant sale. Throughout all her years, she has studied art as a window into Spirit and the psyche, and Nature has been her church. Michelle believes that our hands are magnificent communicators. When we let them dig, sculpt, draw, scrape, tie and sew, we are sending messages to and from Heart Center. Our hands, full of sensation but devoid of reasoning, can create pure, honest prayer. In Michelle’s classes she teaches, with a variety of tools, different ways of accessing Spirit using our hands and hearts. Her goal is to help us all access the knowing we had at birth. Michelle is deeply knowledgeable about the spiritual wisdom of nature, studied Shamanic Herbalism with Darcey Blue, and walks with the soul of a Witch.
