The Mask is an ancient symbol of transcendence and power.
It emits an almost eerie force field of latent power and
potential; the sense of something deeply mysterious about to reveal itself; a spirit calling up
secrets from within - and beyond...
The Mask has had a significant role throughout human civilization
as a portal into the great mysteries of life and consciousness.
It was used by the great Shaman traditions of every known culture
as a instrument for obtaining wisdom, gaining protection, seeking guidance, celebrating rites of
passage, and for healing.
In more metaphysical terms, the mask is a way of reconnecting the
"dreaming soul" with the every day living self.
I've discovered for myself, that mask making holds that same
mysterious power of self-discovery today...
I've noticed for years that people are fascinated by masks - and by
the curious power they evoke. We have all probably sensed that odd sensation of a living presence
when we gaze upon an ancient mask hanging in a museum or gallery -- or in theater.
In the more than 30 years I’ve been exploring masks and working
with clients (ranging in age from only 17 months to 102 years!); in classrooms and workshops
(ranging in size from 6 people to 80); for shamanic healing ceremonies; and on special Life Dream
Masks on a commissioned basis, I continue to grow in my fascination and deep respect for the
tremendous transforming power mask making holds for our contemporary and "high tech"
Whether your interest is "purely artistic", more playful, or deeply
soulful, making your Life Mask can show you something truly surprising and wonderful... what I
call: "the spirit of the mask".
