art is healing, healing is art, and everything is possible.... Ani Rose Whaleswan

I am a mother, artist, writer, minister, and a woman who has advocated for issues of women all of my life. My art supports several websites dealing with sexual abuse, prostitution and trafficking, movement therapies, spirituality and using art in healing work. This includes making statements politically and advocating for earth causes. I am particularly proud of a new piece in a series using the statue of liberty -- she sits in a bhuddist meditation pose and the fire is a lotus flower. My most recent series centers around "the change" as I am experiencing it myself. I believe in healing in all realms and that women are the leaders in using their bodies, minds, and spirit in healing themselves andeach other, in synch with the great Mother Earth. I look forward to more years of art and writing, and being part of womens lives in many new ways.

June 3-5 - 2011:
Priestess Training: Divination with Z Budapest

The Queen of the witches is back!

This year Z Budapest rolls up her sleeves to teach us the importance of Divination in Women’s Spirituality!

Z calls it a Tarot Social Intensive weekend; a new and inspired way of consulting the Fates and each other as priestesses. Everyone gets a full-spread Tarot reading!

It matters not whether you are an advanced seeker or a beginner with a fresh new deck, this Goddess weekend is devoted to study and first-hand experiences of the Tarot’s wisdoms.

Goddess women, sister priestesses, women who love the earth … come share and learn from Z, the wise woman who legalized Tarot Reading and all forms of Divination and Prophecy in this country. She fought for the rights of all women to legally counsel each other using the tool of the Fates and our own innate psychic abilities. If you’ve wanted to tap into your own abilities, now is the time!

Intensely personal, always political, Z Budapest uses her humor and sharp wit to share stories of women using the Tarot to heal their sisters. She will lead you on an inner journey that will bring you face-to-face with the power of the Fates through the Tarot.

Through the study of Clinical Hypnotherapy, Therapeutic Neuro-Linguistic Programming, and Energy Psychology, students gain the skills to access the subconscious mind and uncover issues, traumas, and limiting beliefs which can then be released.
