Original Artwork by Damini
Damini combines three passions — Shamanism, creative arts, and healing arts — to skillfully weave what she knows and loves into a unique and powerful approach to awakening the creative self.
My work strives to create a bridge between humanity and Nature’s aliveness; to evoke a felt sense that Nature is alive and has spirit.
Nature’s aliveness is also a part of us. When we engage with Nature, we connect with a unique energy that is beyond our mental interpretation of the physical — we connect with our hearts.
This heart connection stirs a knowing in our bones that reminds us that we are part of Nature — part of The Web of Life. This knowing shifts our perspective from the idea that we are separate, to the understanding that Nature is part of us — NOT an other, an object, something to take from, or something to conquer. Ultimately, this understanding of partnership creates a more balanced relationship with Land-Nature-The Planet.
Using layering as a metaphor for the many ways we connect or don’t connect with Nature. I use my skills as an artist to tell a story about our connection with Nature, through the metaphor of Landscapes; the internal landscape of Soul and external landscape of Nature.
Shamanic art is not a representation of healing, it is powerful and profound healing power.
