Workshop: Altar Your Reality- Creating Beauty
Choosing form a beautiful array of treasures provided by Jane and what participants chose to bring, each of us will explore this invitation to create our own expression of beauty through a personal altar. Our eclectic journey will include exotic fabrics, nature’s creations, rhythm/music, your own ancestral symbols, plus anything you may find between now then that has personal meaning. You will be guided to express your unique vision of beauty as we play on many levels.
Our vision quest for our time together is creating an “altar” or “sacred space.” Will you answer the call to explore the unknown? Will you Altar your reality? Will you step through the door to your personal paradise? What lies beyond is only to be seen by diving into the experience. Once you make a decision to attend this workshop, pay close attention to what objects may begin to catch your eye or apparent coincidences.
Our vision for the journey is to connect with each other through artistic creation, reclaiming our value as women…living the inspiration of our Artful Hearts.
Note: Workshop attendees once signed up will receive a list of items to bring and other information.
Born in Kansas and transplanted to Kentucky then Indiana at an early age, Jane Rivar has always known the gift of music and song. Rehearsed at the campfires of family gatherings and schooled in the choirs of early childhood, her memories are infused with the joy of “belonging”. These early experiences in a family that valued service and community, gave her the inspiration to follow this direction in education and life.
Following the completion of an M.A. in music performance and education from Ball State University, Jane began teaching music and performing. As a director of national choral competition groups she recognized the need for quality costuming and creative options for directors. She founded Rivar’s Inc., a premier international custom performance apparel manufacturing company.
The monumental effort involved in building this company and bringing it into fruition without proper balance in her life, resulted in a major health crisis; that stillness that birthed her songwriting and unique form of feather art. Both of these art forms were key to her healing and transformation. Jane continues to interweave these learning experiences as a supportive role for women and community endeavors.
As steward, preserving River Highlands Ranch and Vineyard, Jane continues to carry her passion for creating beauty…living a fully creative life, guided by her deep love of nature, spirituality, and the arts on this 500 acre Sanctuary. www.riverhighlandsranch.com
Jane is the recipient of three international songwriting awards. Her multi-media concert healing journeys, CD’s, videos, art and stories have touched people around the world. Her feather art is shown internationally and held in many private collections. www.janerivar.com
