Visit the Oracle with Kristen Scholfield-Sweet
An Oracle translates a problem or question into a language of image and symbol like that of dreams. The Oracle’s answers change the way you see things. Your anxieties and desires emerge to be recognized and resolved, and hidden transformative energies are released.
Someone wants your attention. Will you go there?
Someone is speaking. Will you listen?

It is the thinking about, rather than the result of art, that teaches me. Maybe there is no absolute truth to anything, but only the stories we tell ourselves about what is going on. It all depends on where one looks.
Art is the glimmering shadow of a never before seen thing.
