journey to wild divine: Group Shamanic Journey Workshop with Victoria Wikler
Date: Saturday, may 12th from 11 am - around 8 pm
Cost: $180 (includes workshop and food/drink for the full day)
This is a full-day workshop led by our artist-in-residence, Victoria Wikler. Victoria is a Spiritual Consultant and Tattoo Artist who creates intuitive tattoo designs based on tarot readings and shamanic journeys that she leads each client through. This workshop will begin with community gathering time for all participants to get to know each other over snacks, followed by the Shamanic Journey.
The Shamanic Journey is a meditative experience that induces an altered state of consciousness via breath-work led by shamanic drumming techniques and prompts. While in this journey state, you will experience physical, visual, and even audible sensations in your physical body but the experience is happening in your consciousness. The journey state is different for everyone - including the amount of time each person rests in their journey state. The actual journey will be followed by a period of silent introspection and time with a personal journal where you will recollect your experiences from the journey state.
This will be followed by light discussion, and a potluck / family style dinner. This is a full day event because of the nature of the activities - sufficient time has been allotted for re-integration into your surroundings.

**The Tattoo Process**
(separate from workshop, done at Victoria's tattoo shop located in Springtown (20 mins. outside Easton)
Scheduled at a later time at the artists earliest convenience
Estimated cost : $300 and up
The Shamanic Journeying Workshop can be culminated, if you so desire, in an intuitive tattoo derived from your experiences in the journey. The tattoo is placed on the body in a place that needs physical or emotional healing and is done in the traditional hand-poke method (not by machine).
Victoria's tattoos are intuitively designed, and are done with handcrafted medicinal tattoo ink made from activated charcoal (to lift out toxins) and extracts from chaga and reishi mushrooms (both of these mushrooms are medicinal and are meant to replace the toxins lifted out by the activated charcoal with their inherent healing properties.)
