Shamanism, Kelts and Art

Shamanic world views and practices appear all over the world. They are often reflected in Celtic traditions and act as inspirations for contemporary artists of any heritage. These perspectives can enhance the natural connection between the head and the heart, the individual and the universe, enhance a sense of purpose and meaning in our lives, and give new passion and expression to our art
