This painting named itself “Salmon Shaman,” back in Dec of 2011 when I was enrolled in Connie Hozvicka’s DEEP. We were exploring our devotion, honoring the artist’s voice, following the brush strokes of heart.
As I listened within, the voices of my lineage began to speak. “What do you love?” “What do you trust?”
The Source of Life calls me. The hands of healers hold the brush. I am called back into my practice of flowing the light through my hands. A luminous glow awakens my heart.
I am devoted to the Ancestor’s stories that live within ancient devotion, the honoring of Spirit and Matter neatly woven into the dreams of the people.
I allow the listening to go deeper, to call me home into the real truth of my devotion. The Medicine People are speaking, remembering me to the wisdom of the primal body. We heal with our hands, we love with our hearts, we dream the unknown into being.
