“By immersing ourselves in the mythic threads of textiles and sacred objects from around the world, we come to the realization that as archetypal psychologist James Hillman says, ‘All things are full of Gods.’” ~ Pamela Bjork
Throughout the years, Pam has journeyed to five continents as a witness and participant to many ceremonies. A sky burial in Tibet, Buddhist fire ceremonies in Bhutan, healing sessions in Bali with a yogi whose God was the leach, Black Madonna sites in France, carnival in Venice, the Holy Week Procession in Sicily, the labyrinth at Chartres.
Along the way she shopped for the sacred, collecting objects of beauty, artifacts, and ceremonial textiles to re-color her life. Pam will bring some of her textile treasures from her travels and help us see the scared that has been persevered in these fiber art pieces of wisdom, Myth, history and culture. Please join us for a mythological adventure in textiles and stories with Pamela Bjork.
