Iconography Workshop with Father Damian Higgins 4/23/13-4/26/13 in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Wow! What an incredible experience it was 2 weeks ago when Fr. Damian Higgins of Mendocino, CA graced us with his presence & “Classical Iconography Workshop!” Fr. Damian led us through not only the techniques & execution of completing our very own Icons from start to finish, but also gave us the background & significance of this ancient “Icon Writing” tradition.

Angels In My Studio

Are you an artist or creative person?

Do you love angels?

Would you love to connect more deeply with your angels and guides in your everyday life as well as in your creative practice?

Are you interested in learning techniques to incorporate the energies and forms of angels and spirits into your artwork?

If you’ve answered “yes” to any of these questions you are in the right place. Please consider joining us for Angels In My Studio — a 5-month long online course dedicated to both mixed-media art and angelic connections.

Angels In My Studio begins on May 1st 2012. This course is designed to allow beginner and seasoned artists alike to connect more deeply with the angelic realm through their creative practice.

CLICK HERE to register and pay in full – a one time investment of $111

~~~~~

When you join us for Angels In My Studio you’ll have the experience of:

  • connecting energetically to the angelic realm, as well as your personal guides and angels through monthly angelic attunements and activations from Michael Golzmane, a powerful angelic channel and psychic healer with clients throughout the world
  • receiving guidance and support from your higher self, guides, and angels through engaging in written exercises and guided meditations facilitated by Sheri Ann Ponzi
  • developing strategies to bring this powerful connection into your creative practice more consciously
  • being in community with other creatively-minded folks who share your love of angels 

As you can see, Angels In My Studio is much more than “just” a course in art technique (though it certainly *is* that). This course is intended for those that are truly open to deepening their connection with the unseen.

Each in-depth video lesson will provide you with both the tools for creating a variety of mixed-media art from a place of connection to the intuitive realm and grounded technical skills in depicting angels, guides, and spirit. Over the course of the 5-months we spend together you will deepen your skills and abilities in allowing your artwork to unfold from a place of conscious connection to spirit.

“Angels In My Studio” lessons will be delivered right on this site each month through embedded and downloadable video, audio, and written word. The first lesson will be released on May 1st. You will be able to download and keep all of the materials forever — and the community forums will stay open through December 31, 2012. So you can take your time and enjoy the journey.

Happy MLK Holiday, everyone! On the wings of the courageous Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., I, too, would like to say: “I have a dream…” Do you have a dream?? I’ll bet you do. Several years ago, while living in a new city (suburb, really) with my husband and two preschool children, a seed was planted in me. I had no family or friends in this new place, so I spent a lot of time by myself or in the company of the children. I was no longer working as an International Flight Attendant, as I had done for many years. Instead I had chosen, with the support of my husband, to stay home and raise the kids. Firstly, I must say, I’m really happy with that choice. But some of those days, as I’m sure many stay-at-home parents will agree with me on, were extremely challenging. But, gradually, things began to change. I believe that every cloud does, indeed, have a silver lining. And often, behind that cloud, waiting in that silver lining, is an angel. Now, my angels come in many forms.  Sometimes, they appear in dreams or thoughts; sometimes in image, word or prayer. But, I must say that, at least for me, my favorite angels appear in human form. I can cite a number of examples, but I’m certain that if you think about it for a moment, you will know exactly what I’m talking about. Which brings me to my point. I believe in DREAMS, just as Dr. Martin Luther King did. And, I believe in ANGELS. And this is why I am so excited to announce, that I will be teaching in an on-line course, beginning in May, called “ANGELS IN MY STUDIO,” led by Sheri Ann Ponzi! We will be joined by a number of other amazing artists & teachers, as well. So, you see, I believe in myself & my dreams, I believe in the messages received from angels & I believe in YOU! Just look at me for an example. I am now a working artist, & fulfilling yet another dream: teaching an on-line spiritual & creative workshop with an incredible group of artists & teachers. Believe me, if I can do it, you can do it! Sign in for my newsletter to receive all of the latest information on the course right here, up on the right, in the box that days “SIGN ME UP!” (That’s just for my newsletter. Sign-ups for the course will begin in March.) “ANGELS IN MY STUDIO” course description can be found at: http://www.paintingherselfintobeing.com ***P.S.***DON’T FORGET TO COME DOWN TO THE GYPSY NIGHT MARKET IN CHINATOWN FOR FEBRUARY’S FIRST FRIDAY ART EVENT ON 2/3/12 5-10 PM

We often hear & even feel the ‘stress’ of the so-called “Holiday Season.” That window of time that falls between Thanksgiving (in the US) & New Year’s Day. This is a season that most of us (especially children)look forward to as the glorious celebration at the end of 1 year & the anticipation of a fresh start to a new year. There are parties, events & the like for any number of occasions that fall into this time frame. It sounds just wonderful & fun, until we are actually in the midst of it.Parties to attend, gifts to purchase, meals to prepare, in-laws, blood relatives, bosses to entertain & be entertained by.

So why do so many of us end up feeling drained, exhausted, resentful & overwhelmed during this most joyous time of year? I’m sure that we all have different reasons, triggers, “history” & the like that bring us to a place of

dissatisfaction & anxiety.

Sooooo….. I, as Glitter Gypsy, am here to propose a couple of solutions to all of this.

1. Keep things simple & focus on relationships & fun, rather than winning “Moistest Turkey of the Year award.”

2. Remember to take care of yourself 1st, so that you have more of the “Fun You” to share, which is really what people are craving now (meaningful relationships.)

3. Do something “just for you.” If someone asks you what you would like for Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, etc., tell them that you would really like to have an “experience” more than a traditional “gift.” And this is where I can help. At Glitter Gypsy’s Art & Adventures, we offer not only beautiful, gallery quality gifts for every budget from costume, hand-made, recycled, up-cycled, vintage estate jewelry to original paintings, prints & giclees & hand-made sculptural pieces.

Another gift item to request, or just give to yourself as a gift of self-love is an experience. I offer everything from painting to assemblage art, jewelry making, shrine, alter & “Memory box” making, both in group & private sessions. You will love it, & I know that you will leave feeling so refreshed & renewed & ready to love & appreciate again that you’ll wish you’d done it for yourself sooner!

>>>>So, I have 2 offerings that I would like to invite you to:

1. Register for my last workshop of 2011 on 12/03/11 from 10:30-5:30 for an amazing “Cleansing Ritual” that will wash away that which no longer serves us, & inviting in all that is good for us in this new year of 2012!

2. In addition, I will be hosting an Artist’s Wine & Cheese Reception & Trunk Show, selling my merchandise mentioned above, as well as “Experience Gift Certificates.” This will be the next day on 12/04/11 from 2-5pm. Open to the public, so spread the word & bring your friends!

****Students who attend the 12/03/11 workshop will have special early VIP shopping after class from 5:30-6:30 AND receive 15% off all purchases!!!

What could be more fun– Connecting with other women in ritual & then shopping-on sale-with them while drinking wine & nibbling on cheese??!! Get your Holiday shopping finished early & have fun at the same time!

Won’t you please join me for one or both of these events?? I’d LOVE to meet/see you!!!………Aloha & Mele Kalikimaka!!!
