MEET YOUR SPIRITUAL GUIDES & HELPERS

Circle up for Visual Quest as I guide you through a 4-week online course on my personal process of shamanic painting and point you toward your totems and helpers!

COURSE STRUCTURE

The week before we begin Visual Quest, you’ll begin seeing with new eyes! You’ll be initiated with tools and the basic ways of shamanism, so that you’ll be comfortable calling on your guides and utilizing the tools throughout your painting intensive.

We’ll cover the following topics:

*Honoring Your Process, and Marking Rites of Passage with Celebration
*Supporting the Creative Body: YOU at Your Most Vibrant
*Restorative Painting
*Tips for Staying Creative, including The 15 Minute Artist

What’s most intriguing about this process is that you’re taking the trip down the rabbit-hole to find the treasure and messages within, gathering information from inside of you, about you, (which relates to what is universal in all of us), and bringing it into visual existence where it shapeshifts and teaches you at an even deeper level. I find that this process allows me to step aside and let the message of my work find it’s own way. 

 

What to Expect 
*To enjoy this class, simply be willing to see what is inside of you and make an attempt at interpreting it visually.

*There is an optional materals list provided here, however, you could make full use of this course with some paper and a set of watercolors if you really wanted to.

*No experience whatsoever is required.

*Pixie will be posting Monday-Saturday.

*As the course is online, you can join from anywhere in the world so long as you have access to high-speed internet (so you can watch the videos).

*While there are no due dates to complete the exercises and you’re welcome to follow along closely or work at your own pace, the content does build on itself so you may find that working through it sequentially is most beneficial.

*Depending on how much you want to get your hands dirty, interacting with the course will take 2+ hours per week and hands-on/painting will add on as much time as you enjoy.

*There will be a live-stream video call with Pixie scheduled during the course where she will be able to answer some of your questions.

*You will have access to all of this rich course content until March 2014 (nearly 7-months).

*The content will be delivered on our private password protected site and will contain a mix of written, video and audio recorded posts. The videos are professionaly shot and presented on Vimeo in HD. The audio recordings are also professionally captured. In other words, this course looks and sounds fantastic.

*You’ll want to ensure that your computer and internet browsing software are all up-to-date so you can watch the videos (if you can watch our promo video, you should be fine!)

*You will have access to a supportive community in our Private Facebook group for sharing experiences and your artwork – and that group will remain open to you after class has concluded.

When I first discovered you I followed your artwork. I noticed you offered an online class but I just wasn’t interested. There was no way (in my mind) that such deep work could happen online…. but then I met you at Squam Art Workshops and instantly knew that anything you offered I wanted to be a part of! I was floored at how deep the experience was. Your videos are a huge part of that, Pixie. You are so grounded and genuine and wise in them. I love that you swat flies away, that you battle with the wind to light your sage~ it’s so f’ing real and adorable… Thank you for having the guts to be YOU! I also love that you step into a sister role as opposed to an “expert” role~ you teach us, but you also teach us to find our own way within the offerings. Super valuable. -Elke Glendenning

 

Pixie’s approach, to both art and spirit, is natural and simple, yet deep and holistic.

Who is this class for?

Visual Quest is for spiritual people who want to give form to what they feel inside and around them. It teaches you how to apply what you feel to the canvas.

It’s also for creative people desiring to connect to the Spirit that lies inside of them and outside, enabling work with meaningful symbols, and a deeper connection to the artwork.

It’s for artists wishing to freshen and deepen their practice, and for non-artists who would like to explore the mediums in a non-competitive and supportive environment.

It is for deep-thinkers and deep-feelers exploring their inner terrain and wanting to gain more clarity about the strongest archetypes within them, and the personal symbols which represent them.

Sharing My Practice :: Honoring the Medicine
This class is a convergence of everything I know about spirit and art all rolled into one. Creative living and spiritual practice  represents all that’s mysterious, alive and juicy in every one of us. I’ve been painting for twenty-three years, and I’ve watched my practice become more reflective of my deep Self, and less of my ‘ideas’ about what would make a good painting. This freeing process is release, it’s color and spirit in motion, it’s a deep embrace of What Is, and an intentional honoring of life itself.

What is Shamanism?

What is a Vision Quest?
A vision quest is a traditional practice of being alone in a wild place for four days and four nights without food or water, in order to become present to the messages which Spirit would like for you to hear. Traditional people await signs and symbols, such as an unusual occurrence in the weather, a visit from a wild creature,  and visions or voices which would indicate one’s path or purpose in life. One’s own relationship to Spirit and place in the world is honored and affirmed in this process.

As creatives, and many of us spiritual creatives at that, we benefit from getting in the zone in the same way. The quest you’re about to go on will take you into your relationship with the Source of Creation. It is personal and private for you, and it is your birthright to access to the messages.

A medicine person traditionally holds camp while the questers go out into the wild. He or she makes prayers and offerings, and calls on the guides and spirits to become known. This is my job, which I honor in the tradition that I was taught.
