Creative Arts and Shamanism
At the Thirteenth Moon Center we offer creative arts therapy, shamanic healing, and classes in shamanism.
Creative Arts Therapy combines the power and experimentation of self-expression with the insights and methods of psychotherapy. Your own inner creativity opens channels for awareness and discovery. Rather than be overwhelmed by talking about feelings, your imagery allows sharing to be paced. You can access a level of connection beyond words using this dynamic process and in relationship with art therapist as witness and guide.
SHAMANISM is the age-old practice of traveling in spirit form to other realms of reality, meeting allies and teachers, and working spiritually to foster your empowerment, insight, and healing. As practitioners of shamanism, we work in unison with spirit for your best interest by clearing intrusions and power imbalances, doing soul retrieval, and healing the spiritual aspects of illness. When you have a shamanic healing, the intent is for you to be more present in your body so that you will feel whole and centered while dealing with your personal needs and questions.
We all know we need spiritual strength in our lives to sustain us on our world
path. The circles of community give us all strength. We invite you to join this
