Divine Inner Wisdom: Developing Intuition Thru Visual Journaling

When: May 13th, 2017

Where: Artisan Santa Fe

2601 Cerrillos Road

Santa Fe, NM

We’ve traveled to distant places in our Visual Journals and heard the longings murmur in our hearts, but now there seems to be a block, an impasse. Where do we go next? What do we do? It’s time to consult the Oracle. In this workshop we will investigate our inner wisdom and healers through various exciting and fun tools such as personality and soul cards, Animal Medicine Cards, Astrology, Mandalas and altar making in our books for self-dialogue. Images in our Visual Journals are like the metaphoric language of dreams and we need symbols and archetypal images to relate to them and find meaning. Life begins with this inner journey. Pay attention to the sage advice of the soul: your creative voice will be loudest and most clear here. Discover the healing and transformational process created by mixed media artist Juliana Coles that combines Journal Writing with art-making in a book for self-expression. For all levels, no prior experience necessary.
