BEKAH STARR

As a Sacred Artist I aim to create an experience of connection between people and sacred feminine mysticism. I create art as prayer.

 

The Process: The process of creating these illustrations was an incredible journey and I hope to do it again and again. Over a period of four months, I spent a week with each pathway. Randomly I picked the name of the pathway out of a jar at the beginning of the week. I would research the pathway, largely from the book "The Hebrew Priestess" by Jill Hammer and Taya Shere. From there, I explored the pathways using sacred journey visualizations and meditations, and by building altars. I listened deeply to the messages I received from the journeys and the altars to see what wanted to be expressed in a visual image. Some were very clear; some took extra time. It was remarkable to see what unfolded in each week. For example, during the week of the mourning woman I was honored to lead a graveside ceremony, and the week of the seeker I was traveling. Each image has deep meaning that I very much enjoy discussing.
