This class follows on from from our September Class "The Heart of the Creative Process" (but can be attended on its own!) Where before we explored creativity in the realm of human consciousness, we now journey into the heart of Creation. Once Before Time (before Time existed as a cosmic organising dimension) there was a primordial Divine Consciousness that conceived of a desire for "something other than itself". This primordial Essence split and duality came into being: self and other, me and not-me. All sentient beings arose from this process and a Divine flame ensouls them. However because of th split into me and not-me we all have primal desire to re-unite with our other part/missing part. Some call this a soul mate. Personally I think of the "other" as all of Creation outside me. If we do not understand this cosmic process, of creating and evolving through duality, we can became over-identified with our human identity as male or female and we can become stuck. To shift our way to the next level of consciousness we need to learn how to dance creatively with all aspects of ourselves. Carl Jung spoke of anima and animus. As shamanic teachers we sometimes work with a hieros gamos or sacred marriage of opposites. This can be done through art, music, dance, writing and in many other ways. In this class we focus on art and this work will continue right through the 2 year sacred art practitioner training. Please note: though this class is aimed at people who will attend this training, this class is open to anyone who wishes to attend.

What is creativity? "Creativity is marked by the ability or power to create - to bring into existence, to invest with a new form, to produce through imaginative skill, to make or bring into existence something new." - Webster In this on-line class we will journey to the very heart of the creative process. We will explore what creativity is: the internal and external expressions it can take: We will then take the group through some exercises that will prepare people for working in a powerful Circle at Pendle Hill next year. Please note: though this class is aimed at people who will attend this training, this class is open to anyone who wishes to attend. "Creativity is the process of bringing something new into being...creativity requires passion and commitment. Out of the creative act is born symbols and myths. It brings to our awareness what was previously hidden and points to new life. The experience is one of heightened consciousness-ecstasy." - Rollo May, The Courage to Create

This 30-minute class by Imelda Almqvist introduces key principles from her shamanic work with children and teenagers. It introduces ways of creating sacred space where young people can develop their innate spirituality and communicate with their own spirit allies, - without adults imposing a belief system, religion or intermediary. Imelda has found that young people can so arrive at a viable spiritual toolkit for life. This allows them to resolve challenges and issues in their lives from a place of higher consciousness, creativity and "thinking outside the box". Imelda's book by the same title will be published in September 2016 and she will soon be offering more classes on Learnitlive based on her innovative work with The Time Travellers, her shamanic program for children and teenagers in London , UK. Imelda is currently recording sessions for her own radio progra, called "Natural Born Shamans", on A Shamanic Life Radio in the USA, in partnership with John Carosella.
