Nikki Featherstone: April 14-18, 2019


Retreat Description

Nikki Featherstone specializes in a method of guiding people through the Shapeshifting Art Therapy process; a method of psychological transformation she encountered and helped develop in her professional training as an Art Therapist. She came to truly know Shapeshifting intimately by undergoing the process 3 times throughout her own Healing Journey, subsequently writing an e-book titled: Shapeshifter: One Woman’s Journey through Creative Spiritual Transformation.

Shapeshifting Art Therapy combines methods, techniques and theory from Art Therapy,

Jungian psychology, an ancient Buddhist practice called Chod, and Shamanic Traditions. It involves a series of sessions over 3 days, where Nikki guides you in getting in touch with your Shadow or unhealed/split-off parts of your eternal Self; coming into right relationship with these vital parts of Self; moving into transformation of the Shadow into an Ally of strength and health; and the reintegration of this part of Self into Union of Oneness. This intense and beautiful process includes art making, guided meditations/Shamanic journeys, self-reflections, and journaling.

Leave the ordinary world behind and step into the ethereal space of the Canadian Rockies and the nature that surrounds Lake Louise. Immerse yourself fully into the process of transformation in this luxury setting where you have no other responsibilities except to yourself and this magical journey.

Note: Intuitive Art Making means allowing the unconscious to guide our creation; therefore, multiple mediums will be available for use and each creation will be vastly different from each other’s in the group. Emphasis is on expression, rather than product. No art experience is required.
