Embracing Change

"We come together in safe and respected circles to remember, stretch our wings into new places, and consciously create life in greater alignment with our souls calling".

"Sandra Cosentino”

Shamanism is one of the oldest human practices of humankind; from an Anthropological view, the question has been how long does shamanism date back?

Based on the evidence, it is believed that shamanism dates back one hundred thousand years and is a universal practice.

Earth Song Dreaming offers the opportunity to embrace the true path of your heart.

Carmel Ursua Sonsalla has over 26yrs experience in the healing industry; she has been initiated into Medicine ways and has travelled throughout Fiji, Central Australia, Nepal, Asia, Indonesia and parts of America.

Carmel remembers the earth dreaming tracks, the ancient landscapes and the sacred mountains that held and healed her as she spent time in nature, as her shamanic view lens opened as shamans and metaphysical wise people deepened her practices.

The untamed places of nature gifted me with a deeper understanding of my medicine pathway. The willingness to live on the edge, push my limits, and reclaim my inherent birth rite as a Healer, Teacher, Medicine Hoop, Drum-maker, and Ceremonial Leader.

My journey is a continual lifelong commitment and experience, which has directed me into new levels of my soul's expression at the heart of the motherland.

Benefits Ceremony

Ceremonies create a safe and supportive space for celebration healing and growth.

Reminding us of our connection to the unseen worlds that reside within each of us.

 

"Everything that the power of the world does is done in a circle.

The sky is round, and I have heard that the earth is round like a ball, and so is all the stars.

 

The wind in its greatest power whirls, Birds make their nests in circles, for theirs is the same religion as ours, the sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle.

 

The moon does the same, and both are round; even the seasons form a great circle in their changing and always coming back to where they were. The life of man is a circle from childhood to childhood. And so it is in everything where power moves."

 

Black Elk, Ogalala Sioux

(1863-1950)

Benefits of Art Therapy

Allowing your thoughts, feelings or human development to be expressed through art, ritual, myth, music, and dance.

 

Explore your life's journey and help you to bring a new understanding of your existence.

 

Color, meditation, clay work and dialogue are helping to form your unique shape and Identity in the world, bringing personal growth.

 

Identify meaning, limitations, symptoms, life management skills to open new opportunities, creating expansion and a healing environment.

 

Whenever illness is associated with a loss of soul, "the arts emerge spontaneously as remedies, soul medicine."

The medicine of the artist, like that of the shaman, arises from his or her relationship to "familiars"- the themes, methods, and materials that interact with the artist through the creative process.

" Shaun McNuff"

 

Letting go of the controlling mind a person can create soulful symbols, pictures or paintings.

 

The Blessings experienced in therapy can reach further; they can remind artists everywhere what the function of art has always been and will always be.

Mask Transformation

Over thousands of years, indigenous people have painted symbols of nature, magic, and power onto their bodies, their animals, their drums rattles and clothing.

 

Painting symbols on ones face either in visualization or in real time can be empowering as we;

 

Affirm our authentic self.

The truth of who we are as we acknowledge the magic gifts and power that resides within.

Reclaiming and healing the lost or damaged part of self

 

These symbols represent their connection with nature and all there is, this may include

A vision, grief, healing or a declaration of intent.

This custom was miss understood by non-natives and began to be called War Paint, War often had nothing to do with these symbols.

 

As the Olga Holy Man Nicholas Black Elk stated by being painted the people have been changed, they have undergone a new birth and with this, they have new responsibilities.
