Creating New Moon Magic through the Art of Manifestation Collage
Date: Saturday, September 12th, 2015 Time: 1:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. Costs: $40 which includes all materials
Facilitated By: The Whispering Sage
The New Moon provides an opportunity to create new beginnings, to draw from the great mystery, and to coax dreams into reality. It’s a time to think about what you “want” to manifest. One way to make them “real,” is to work with images. Collages, and the new word for them, “vision boards,” are useful ways of shaping your intentions. Collage is a French word that means, “to glue,” and it’s considered both a high art form, and one that’s accessible to those without traditional training. Anyone can do it! It is magic and living breathing art. In this class we will go on a meditative journey to unravel more of what the unconscious wants us to bring into our art, and then we will turn up the volume on our intentions and desires as we create our magical Manifestation Collages!!
Come join this FUN class and receive the bounty of magic and illumination!
