Happy summer, non-metaphoric Starlight!

I hope you all are enjoying the shifting energies of this time of year, complete with a black moon month (two, count ’em, two new moons….a time for powerful intention-setting), eclipses and, the past few days, a rumbling earth beneath our feet in my neck of the woods. I am choosing to frame these rumblings as a reminder to get unstuck from being too rooted, to shake myself up a bit and wiggle my roots and dance my branches.

I started that shaking up a couple of months ago, moving into a new, yummy space at New Orleans Square (part of Commercial Center) in Las Vegas. It has been downright groovy setting the space physically and energetically and feeling that sense of growing into and inhabiting it. I am having the GRAND OPENING & TREASURE HUNT on Saturday, July 20 (part of Third Saturday at New Orleans Square). Not only will there be magical art, great conversation and good times with those gathered, there will be music, munchies and a Treasure Hunt that will take you around to all the cool people and stuff going on at NOS….musicians to the left of me, artists to the right, here I am, stuck (actually grinning) in the middle with you.

Please come down for the GRAND OPENING & TREASURE HUNT Saturday, July 20, 4-6 p.m. at my new digs, 900 E. Karen Ave, Suite A-116, next to The Violin Outlet.

And, the very next day, Sunday July 21, from 10-6, I am excited to invite you to a process I am enjoying playing with:

ReTREAT July 21, 2019, 10-6

Tree Dialogue

Intentional Creativity ® invites the syncopated dance of muse and editor, right and left brain, image and word, wholeness and detail into a splashy, playful, colors-flying dialogue that sources your inner brilliance and kicks your ass into THE MUSE MADE ME DO IT high gear.

Whatever you have been contemplating, whatever visions have been stalking you, whatever inquiries are rattling inside like that song that won’t stop playing in your head, bring them to your canvas, tell them to “get inside your belly” (aka painting) and see what the colors, shapes and words reveal.

We will be actively exploring and safari-ing into that THING ® that has been beating mightily on your inner door, bringing it alive in the vast and glorious jungle of your canvas in symbols, colors, words, questions, finger splashes, debates… scribbling freely and wildly until the Portal of Possibility in the Painting jettisons that THING ® from inside out and your badass Muse can get the sparks flying, the elements humming, and magic created. The more mayhem, movement, and playful hell-if-I-know-what-is-going-on attitude the better. You can keep your image free and flowing or polish it into a more “finished” work of art. Either way, expect surprises, new energy, and a whole new appreciation of You, oh Gifted and Multidimensional Being.

There will be visioning, painting, writing, scribbling, moving, munching (there will be small munchies and a lunch break), playing, laughing and connecting. No artistic experience required, just comfy clothes that you don’t mind getting paint on and radical curiosity. Contact Havi at paintingshaman@gmail.com for more information

These days of summer are wonderful times to reTREAT, relax, reflect, reset, renew and revel. Be gentle, be passionate, be safe, be courageous, and, most of all, be you.

I hope to have the pleasure of spending some special moments with you soon!
