Awakening Creativity Through Spiritual Practice

description: 

From the moment our first ancestors painted on the walls of the cave, art has been one of our sacred languages and a source of creative magic. Whether you are an artist seeking to deepen your practice, or a seeker wanting to include artistry as a component of spiritual exploration, this session will help participants to awaken the artist within. What to do if inspiration wanes? What are the myths we tell ourselves about being an artist? What changes need to be made in our lives to make time and space for art-making? How to foster shared inspiration in community?

We will explore our relationship with the Muses, the daughters of Zeus and Memory. Hesiod said, “for though a man has sorrow and grief in his soul, yet when the servant of the Muses sings, at once he forgets his dark thoughts and remembers not his troubles. Such is the holy gift of the Muses to men.” Who are the Muses, and how do we, as modern artists and pagans, work with these presences? How do we coax the Muse within to help feed our creative processes? The Muses represented a diverse range of sacred arts, so this workshop session should appeal to multiple disciplines of practice, for beginners as well as professional artists.

In this workshop we will explore the Elder Futhark, the most commonly used system of today. We will look at the history of the Runes and their traditional associations and uses. We will focus mainly on using the Runes as a magickal alphabet, how to take advantage of the universal patterns of energies that lay behind these simple symbols. We will learn to write, combine, and chant these ancient letters to bring about both practical and spiritual change and manifestation.
