POWER OBJECTS

Power Object Workshop with Nazanin Marashian

11 February 2018 | 9.45am – 12noon | Investment $33 

As we begin the master number 11 year of 2018 we are being invited to truly manifest our hearts desires and step into our calling. This workshop offers a space where women can come together to hold each other in trust and faith that whatever is unfolding in our lives right now is pushing us collectively towards shining our light and walking our path.

What do you want to call into your life? What attitude or quality is missing that the Power Object can assist you in walking in your truth? What aspects of your life need more support?

Power Objects have existed across the millennia and are present in every culture in the world. They hold the vibration of prayer in a potent and tangible way. They can be used for protection, healing, uncovering truth, opening the doors of clarity to envision the path head, and connection to your highest purpose to name a few.

Each of you have the power to heal yourself; the Power Object acts as a container assisting you to break through the layers of conditioning so that your essence can shine through. You can use it for your own healing, healing for others, to strengthen your purpose and for protection. The purpose and power of the object is something that is quite personal and can be whatever you need support with as you journey into 2018 and beyond.

We will gather in circle on 11.02.2018 which carries the vibration of 2.2.11, a set of two master numbers that fully support manifestation, self-acceptance, abundance and a deep honouring of the heart so that your deepest desires and wildest dreams may be ignited and the witnessing of the sacredness and power within you to expand through the Power Object.

A collection of materials gathered from nature will be available for you to bind your intentions onto the object concluding with a silent meditation to fully integrate the work.

All materials are included in the workshop, however, if you feel to bring a special item to add such as crystals, feathers and beads etc. please do so.

I look forward to connecting with you!

The Red Project – Anahita’s Dream  

IWVAC-Australia Exhibition 

inTransit Art Space, Nth Sydney | 1 March – 8 April 2018

This exhibition is part of The Red Project, a North Sydney Council Arts & Cultural event exhibiting artworks by 74 women at 6 venues throughout the month of March, in celebration of creative women in North Sydney and International Women’s Day

North Sydney Council has invited the Iranian Women Visual Artist Collective-Australia (IWVAC-Australia) artist among other acclaimed Australian artists to participate in a series of exhibitions to be held at six Council venues for a two-week period from 1 – 18 March 2018.

The Red Project takes as its theme the colour “red” as a colour associated with the earth, energy, strength, power, action, determination as well as passion, desire and love.

IWVAC-Australia artists Nazanin Marashian, Negin Chahoud, Sepideh Farzam, Farina Salehi and Azadeh Yaghoubi have responded to this theme with their exhibition “Anahita’s Dream” to be shown in the North Sydney Councils inTransit Gallery.

The Ancient Persian Goddess Anahita is often considered as the ‘Persian Aphrodite’ and patron of women. She is goddess of fertility, protector of the waters, of animals, and goddess of war. She represents all aspects of life and death – the mother, the lover, the protector and destroyer.

Anahita’s Dream recalls the power, beauty and sovereignty of this ancient goddess through classic and contemporary symbolism. Marashian’s paintings and fabric collages reference goddess worship and ritual of the ancient world, honouring the sacred feminine through the elements of water and fire. Chahoud’s watercolour painting expresses the divine love and passion that Anahita ignites. Farzam and Salehi create abstractions of texture re-calling a deep reverence for nature and the internal dialogue of the feminine psyche. Yaghoubi uses classical Persian symbolism infused with personal motifs to speak about the inward journey of purification and spirituality.

The Red Project is an ART MONTH Sydney 2018 event.

My work has been selected to feature in The Other Art Fair (TOAF) at the end of March. I am working on a new series of paintings and drawings for the TOAF that connects to my spiritual awakening and my work with the Goddess energies. This is the first time I am showing my work as a solo artist in the Fair. In 2016 I exhibited my In Transit body of work as part of a collective. Exciting times a head!
