Activity: External talk or presentation › Oral presentation
This talk expanded upon the ‘Enspirted Landscape’ talk I delivered last year and conveys how my Druid practice and study (Order of Bards, Ovates and Druids) is informing my printmaking artworks. The presentation covered content such as: – Accessing powers of place – Travelling the World Tree – Exploring and navigating the Celtic Otherworld – The Celtic Wheel of the Year – The Four Cardinal Directions - and associated symbolism – Nemetona and the nemeton – Ancestors and Bloodlines – Totem Animals – Taliesin, Britain’s greatest Shaman poet – The Web of Wyrd – The Crane Bag: A Druid’s shamanic tools – Shamanic consciousness and insight – Awen: The Creative flow of inspiration
Following the talk, I delivered a practical session that included Druidic and Yogic Dharana Meditations along with creative thinking exercises such as ‘The Shadow’: Psychosynthesis – conversing with your psychic hero/es.
