The Healer * Consignment
There are four stages in a Sweat experience. The first is the east the direction of the teacher, second is the south the way of the healer, then we look to the way of the
visionary in the west and lastly to the north, the direction of the leader.
When I look to The Healer, I'm aware that two emotions we have give the same gift when we process them; joy and pain give the gift of healing in life. We all go through trauma in life and it is the healer in us that makes something positive of pain and joy.
The Healer is the first of a series of works that look inward and help me to deal with all the feelings. The graphite represents the darkness that is part of us all and the red copper color represents the red road, the healing road. This red road stands for sobriety of mind, for those who discipline themselves to think soberly and take whatever action is necessary for peace, love, strength, truth, and, beauty. The shape of the human with open arms is a shape that is similar to the soul catcher that we see in ancient art works and sculpture. The soul catcher is used by the Healer to help capture and bring back those parts of us that run away and hide in the face of abuse and traumatic events. These old ways of healing are as important today as they have always been.
The Healer is a work in progress just as our healing is always a work in progress. We make a difference in the world around us so our healing helps us to bring healing to others and so this is dedicated to the healer in all of us.
