Sacred Arts - an online mixed media workshop with Galia Alena
You can trust the promise of this opening; Unfurl yourself into the grace of beginning That is at one with your life’s desire.
— John O’Donohue

Sacred Arts- Mixed Media Dialogues with the Divine Feminine
13 mOOns-
a year of In*Spiration

Each time I show up to the blank page or canvas it is to listen. Sometimes I come with an enquiry, sometimes I come just to see what wants to be heard, either way a dialogue unfolds and it is through this dialogue that I create art, that I commune with spirit, that I meet myself. Without this dialogue, this backwards and forwards dance of listening and responding, my art practice lack meaning and my life wouldn't be so rich. There is no separation between my life, my spiritual practice and my art practice, all are entwined in this beautiful conversation when I stay open to all the questions and all of the whisperings. My art practice is a liberating act that allows me to access my deeper wisdom and knowing- my bone wisdom.

13 mOOns- $166

13 mOOns Mixed Media Dialogues Sister Keeper wisdom

This workshop is as Given, unfolding as we go. Each new mOOn we will delve into the mysteries of a new theme dialoguing with the Divine Feminine. Themes from Space Holding, Mother, Crone, Shakti, Compassion/Love, the Dark Goddess, the destroyer, Ancestry/lineage, Lunar phases and much more will be explored through multiple mixed media invitations always with the aim of finding your own truths and bone wisdom.  We will play in the realms of archetypes and symbols, mark making, intuition, intentional creativity and so much more. We will also be held and supported by the wisdom of Sister Keepers and the circle of kindred creatives. As such over the 13 mOOns we will create much beauty in a dance with the Divine Feminine to enrich our practice both on the blank page and in life.

Where I create there I am true.
— Rilke

The Format:

Each new mOOn for 13 mOOns we will dive into a new theme of exploration with art journaling, mixed media, crafts and I've invited some guest kindred sister keepers to share in their magical ways in our creative circle,


 ☆    Videos, photos, journaling prompts for explorations and mixed media lessons will be presented each month.
 ☆    Lessons delivered via video along with support audios, photos and text.
 ☆    Optional community Facebook group to circle and share, to inspire and support each other.
 ☆    Acrylic painting, watercolour, sketching and drawing, journaling, stamp carving, eco printing, paper clay sculpting and more.
 ☆    Guest Sister Keepers sharing their wisdom.
 ☆    Lifetime access*
 ☆    We begin with the new astrological year, March 18th

At the end of this workshop you will have developed a deeper connection and a creative dialogue with your own life, your own intuition and your own curiousities and you will have enriched the expression of your soul's unique voice.

This workshop is process oriented although I will guide you with some techniques to play with and many demonstrations of my own process as it is in the moment, moment to moment, fluid, showing up, intentional creativity. It is a creative journey, an ever unfolding journey.

You’ll connect with your own bone wisdom and learn to trust through listening. What wants to be born of your bone wisdom through your creativity?

Your Guide:

galia.jpg

Galia Alena: I am a visual poet, earth mystic and mist walker. I walk in beauty dreaming with the divine to create sacred art and to partner with intuitive healing practices. I create in dialogue with the sacred feminine and my practice involves listening to the magic as it appears in dreams, journey, tarot, nature and other daily blessings. I’m a beauty unveiler, light huntress, moment caresser, mythologist, archetype weaver and visionary poetess. Ultimately, all of my work is about helping people peel back the layers to experience the intense beauty of each moment allowing them access to both their intuitive wisdom and a deeper connection to spirit and self, helping them find their own truths in connected stillness. In this way I am a guidess helping others find their own mystery school of wisdom and sacred being. (Because the beauty of this life cracks our hearts open and it is through the cracks that light can flow both in and out and connect us back to our divine selves).
Oh... and I believe in the magic of this life.

Nissa Howard wants to live in a world where humans don't need to agree with each other to support each other. A world where we don't have to like each other to love each other. A world in which there is less blaming and more empowering. A world where we acknowledge the fact that we too are animals on this Earth and have an entire resource of wild mystery that connects us to all things. As an energy mechanic, she utilizes core Shamanic skills and fierce sacred space to re-wild herself and those who seek her out. Dosed with trickster humor and common sense, she is known to be an authentic and inspiring personal guide. When she’s not working on her business, you can find her being a human doing all the things she shares about in her business. Hunting. Gathering. Writing. Sacred sound making. Bone Reading. Listening. Story telling. Soul crafting. Trailblazing wholeness.

Francine Bonjour-Carter I am an embodiment guide, and a woman dedicated to become who she is meant to be. I moved from my native France to San Francisco in 2006, and live now near Philadelphia, PA. I am a mother of two spirited daughters, an Earth Medicine practitioner, and I am trained and certified in the Feldenkrais Method®, a movement & awareness education system. My way is very feminine. By guiding others with my voice through slow and gentle movements, I offer a space to explore our body in a unique way, access our inner safety and feel grounded in our physicality. In this process, questions matter more than answers, and awareness is a precious gift - and tool - that helps us explore and engage in a truthful conversation with ourselves. I believe that Sacred Listening starts within, and at all time we can expand who we are by intentionally exploring more of our inner landscape, and let our physical sense of self support and inform our art, emotions, experiences and our fullness.

Catherine Beerda-Basso is the creator of Shaenalach Healing and Retreats, a writer, a photographer and a spiritual activist….among other things.
19 years ago the death of her father initiated Catherine into an intensive and intention filled healing path. This path took her deep into the depressions of her woundings; as well as igniting an unraveling of the religious chains that were placed upon her within her upbringing and childhood conditioning. This journey of healing brought her to the unexpected place of Healer and Earth Medicine Practitioner. Within the Sacred container of Shaenalach Healing, Catherine offers women a place to re-learn how to sit in sacred sisterhood and re-member the wisdom of their people. She offers a place of healing, renewal and restoration. Recently her vision of healing has broadened into offering a circle in which both men and women sit together with the intention of healing self and community. Catherine is passionate about spiritual awakening and healing….healing the Past, the Present and the Future; Healing Self and The World. She is a midwife of deep soul awareness and healing; her gifts allowing her to take a woman on a journey to herself, held by the land, by sacred tools, and by her fiercely true presence. Catherine believes that by giving women a safe container to connect to themselves in a spiritual, sacred way, allows them the opportunity to find the pieces that have been scattered, and to re-struct the beauty that is already there.
