Vision Quest - A Group Show of Neo-Shamanic art
Opening Party...Observatory and Phantasmaphile's Pam Grossman are proud to kick off 2010 with VISION QUEST, a group show of neo-shamanic art, on view from January 16th through February 21st. A healer, a medicine (wo)man, a guide: the shaman is a figure who interfaces with nature magic and the invisible world at large, for the betterment of the tribe. Fluent in the language of symbols, and a perennial student of plant wisdom, the shaman is also a translator – bringing back messages from a place veiled thick with leaves, bones, smoke, ghosts. This journey to the other side – to the innerside – is not just a flowery promenade of song and trance; of friendly animal spirits and ancestral reunions. For while this land is rife with vibrant, variegated beauty, it can also be a danger zone. Images of decapitation and dismemberment abound - though ultimately act as portents for personal transformation and rebirth. This shadowy terrain is trod only by those brave enough to encounter whatever may be found along the way, as each sojourn is mysterious, thoroughly unpredictable, and entirely individual. However, the results of the trip often prove invaluable, as the traveler returns armed with knowledge that will in turn illuminate and repair the community, and fortify his or her own soul. While the role of the shaman has traditionally been fulfilled by experienced elders in indigenous groups spanning culture and time, VISION QUEST posits that our artists fit the bill as well. Today, with more of us living in an urban jungle rather than a real one, it has become all the more important to figure out ways to internalize the lessons of nature: its growth, its brilliant bloom, its death. And in an age of digitization and distraction, of wire vines and humming screens, it’s no wonder we long for deeper, more sensory experiences of self - with all of its darkness and divinity. As such, each piece in VISION QUEST explores the archetype of the shamanic voyage, using the tools of paint, pencil, or paper in lieu of fire, flower, feather. Taken together this work represents a full spectrum of what it means to go underground and out of body; to go there and come back again, perhaps just a little bit wiser or, at the very least, more wide awake. Directions to observatory: ***please use nevins st./Proteus gowanus entrance***observatory is located at 543 union street at nevins st., In the gowanus neighborhood of brooklyn.

The Way of the Shaman: The Shamanic Journey, Power and Healing
In this experiential workshop, Nan and David will introduce us to some of the basic methods used by shamans to enter non-ordinary reality, obtain hidden knowledge, answer personal questions and contribute to our own health as well as that of others and the planet. Particular emphasis will be placed on the classic shamanic journey, one of the most remarkable visionary methods available to explore the hidden universe otherwise known mainly through myth and dream. We will be initiated into shamanic journeying, aided by traditional drumming and movement techniques. We will learn how this journey can be utilized to awaken dormant spiritual abilities, to restore spiritual power and health, and to discover and study with our own spirit helpers, and how to apply shamanism in daily life. Note: This is the Foundation for Shamanic Studies Basic workshop. Completion of this workshop qualifies participants to take more advanced courses with the faculty of the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.

Give It Up Spore with Larry Harvey - Presented by Evolver NYC and Burners Without Borders
Evolver NYC and Burners Without Borders invite you to “Give It Up” at our next Spore, where the topic of the night is gifting – what it means, how it can manifest in society, and possibilities for the future. Consider the potential of a community whose economy is based on giving, rather than having – and cooperating, rather than competing.
This Spore will focus on Burning Man, a phenomenon that has revolutionized and broadened the scope of gifting’s potential. We’ll hear from our special guest – Burning Man co-founder, Larry Harvey – who’ll be coming from San Francisco just to share with us his insightful understanding of this profound concept and his thoughts on its role as we continue to evolve. Come early for music and mingling with the Time Interchange of New York (TINY), a dynamic network of New Yorkers connected through a complementary currency system founded on gift culture’s key tenets.
(7p - 12a, $)
Check out TINY – www.timeinterchange.com – if you register and complete one transaction (it won't cost you a dime!) before the Spore, you’ll get a raffle ticket with the possibility of receiving a surprise gift!
