SEVEN DESERT MAIDENS
As an Apprentice of the Waning Moon, I needed to walk into the Desert to find the wide open spaces within myself. This art video shows how that journey unfolded after Six Maidens appeared in a dream and told me to go looking for the mysterious Seventh Maiden.
As the external journey unfolds through extraordinary landscapes the inner journey of soul-making occurs at the sane time. Along the way there are encounters with Kokopelli (Fertility Deity and the Spirit of Music) and The Man In The Moon.
This film explores he essence of creativity and the keys to creative flow. It also explores how dreams offer a window on greater truths and mystery.
The photographs used in this film were taken in California and Nevada (in particular Death Valley and Joshua Tree). The photographs of rock art are from La Cieneguilla, Petroglyph Site, just outside Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA. The images of the 1677 AD Solar Eclipse are from the Chumash Painted Cave just North of Santa Barbara in California.
