In our upcoming November on-line sacred art class we will explore how we can connect with our ancestors and use various forms of creative expression to honour them. I will introduce the Old Norse custom of the Álfablót and Dísablót (dedicated offering ceremonies) to the ancestors and also introduce some key principles from the field of Ancestral Healing work.

Please consider joining us! And if you do, your ancestors will be joining us too!

(This class is also a good starting point for people who wish to explore Seidr)

When people do an introduction workshop in making sacred art with me, they often bring many fears and limiting beliefs:

"I can't draw to save my life!"

"The one time I tried to draw a horse it looked like a cat...."

"My teacher/parent told me I can't paint to save my life!"

I invite you to release all those limiting beliefs in this class. Please sign up for my classes for the sheer joy, healing benefit and personal empowerment involved in making art!
