VISUAL QUEST LIVE PAINT
Join me for a virtual workshop from Lighthorse Studios for a LIVE broadcast Visual Quest workshop!
March 7-8, 2015
VQ Live Paint is a mini weekend workshop based on my in-person painting workshops and my successful 5-week online courses, Visual Quest. For this session, you’ll be connecting with your primary archetypes (represented by animals and/or goddesses) to create a personal and symbolic painting in a day.
When I’ve made these kinds of paintings for myself, they have shifted the way I relate to my role in the world, my purpose and the energy I bring to the world table. We are gifts, we awakened ones, and we are healers.
To know who we are and what we contribute is life-affirming, and also reassuring of ourselves as strong leaders. We can often expect ourselves to be everyone and everything to our families and communities, which comes with pressure to be many things we are not. It is helpful to emphasize our strengths and work with what we’ve come into the world with, and what we’ve experienced, in order to be all that we can be- and not expect ourselves to show up in a way which isn’t specific to us.
It’s going to be a revealing and amazing day.

Visual Quest utilizes the process of shamanic journey and mixed-media painting process, both of which we’ll engage in on the day of the workshop. What’s most intriguing about this process is your trip down the rabbit-hole in search of the guides and messages deep within you, from before birth and since! The process involves gathering sacred information from inside of you, about you, (which relates to what is universal in each of us), and bringing it into visual existence where it shapeshifts, comforts, assures, and teaches you at a deeper level. The process allows you to step aside and let the message of your work find it’s own way. Combining intuitive technique and surrender to what wants to come forth, you will be left with a totemic piece of artwork which is like a personal tarot card or soul card.
