Shamanic Painting ~ with Dalva Lamminmaki and Hazel Bell-Koski

In this day of co-creation we will journey to the beat of Dalva Lamminmäki’s drum and the colour of Hazel’s paint brush. This day grew out of Dalva’s vision and dream of sharing space and co-creating with a painter.

“Shamanic journeys are visions, pictures, feelings, dreams, and symbols. They are a method of inner consultation and a way of communicating with your higher self and your spirit helpers. They are multi-layered experiences that take you to unexpected landscapes of colour, structure, patterns, songs, stories, animals, and teachers. When I drum I go to a dynamic place of colour and movement, light and darkness. It has been my dream to collaborate with a painter and see where the drum and the rhythm will take us? Will we meet in a shared landscape of our collective consciousness? When I hit my drum with the drumstick and the artist touches the canvas with a brush, there is a rhythm. Our rhythm makes pictures.” ~ Dalva Lamminmaki

Dalva Lamminmäki is a teacher with the Center for Finno-Ugric Shamanism in Helsinki, Finland. She will introduce the ancient shamanic healing tradition of Finland, that continues to this day.

Hazel Bell-Koski is a multidisciplinary artist, transormative educator, and intergenerational community weaver. Her first language in colour.
