Numina:
"An indwelling intelligence
or power felt in a particular
place, or in the whole
world......
The origins of the Roman
gods may be the sense of
numinous presences
underlying all the processes
of the natural world."
Making a mask can be a way
to find a face for what is
sensed, elemental, invisible,
and sacred…..
Creating Story and Ritual
is giving them a voice
In traditional cultures
masks are power objects,
tools for the Gods to be
embodied.
To bless, speak, even
prophecy.
Wearing a Sacred Mask is invocation,
and requires psychic preparation.
Care is taken to devoke as well.
"When you create within a
sacred paradigm you find you
are communicating with what
is within you - but also has a
greater source somewhere else.
You collaborate with something
timeless.”

Elizabeth Fuller, Actress, Playright
THE INDEPENDENT EYE
Each time a mask is worn by a new person a new dance is
discovered…..by a community, a new story is told.
