SINGLES WEEKEND PRESENTER - Sunfire studied with Joseph Kramer and other faculty of the Body Electric School, from which he holds certificates in massage, breathwork, and sacred intimacy. He is certified as an Advanced Energy Healer by the Inner Focus School. Additional studies have included meditation, A Course in Miracles, Ira Progoff's Intensive Journal Work, and several Native American practices. Between 1989 and 2004 he led workshops and retreats that combined spirit and body. He has been involved with Easton Mountain since its first summer, and has lived here since 2005. Recently he has renewed his interest in watercolor, and has exhibited in Saratoga Springs through Saratoga Arts' Art in Public Places program. Art is part of his spiritual path. He is therefore a champion of the Pavilion of Imagination, and is interested in helping others express their inner selves in a variety of media. He also likes to help others use their smart phones to create imaginative videos.

SUNFIRE WILL BE PRESENTING:  Drawing from Your Imagination

William Blake, the nineteenth century visionary artist, believed that freedom and equality were discovered through the expression of an individual’s own “peculiar Light.“ Blake called this the “Jerusalem in every Man.”  This workshop will help you discover the ”peculiar Light” within yourself and manifest it in a pencil drawing. We will begin with a simple exercise to sense the pencil as a tool of expression.  We will then move to a meditation to deepen our connection with our Inner Light, and then express that connection with pencil on drawing paper.  No previous art experience is needed. Even if you think you can’t draw, come and be amazed by what you will discover within yourself.
