Join Delfina resident Victoria Scott and curator and writer Michelle Kasprzak for a conversation and introduction to explore practices of Shamanism, digital technologies and VR (Virtual Reality) as similar portals into alternative immersive environments.
Shamanism is one of the oldest spiritual practices, and still widely used as an accessible technology to journey into non-ordinary states of consciousness to receive guidance. The evening will offer an experiential introduction to working with a basic shamanic technique and a moderated conversation on using digital media and VR as means to visualise and share these encounters into Non-Ordinary Reality.
- A journal, note or sketchbook and pen/pencil for writing/drawing
- An eye covering (eyeshade, scarf, bandana, etc)
- You can sit-upright for any of the exercises, or bring a yoga mat or blanket
Light refreshments will be provided.
Due to the limited spaces available, we ask those who wish to join this event to email firstname.lastname@example.org (subject line: Adventures in Non-Ordinary Reality) with a few sentences on why you wish to attend. The event is open to all and no prior knowledge or experience is required, only an interest in the subject and activities of the evening itself.
