STORYTELLING TIPI, September 30th
“Reconnecting to Nature Through Spiritual Teachings and Sacred Geometry of the Sweat Lodge”
On Saturday, September 30th at 2:00p.m. Frog Hollow Integrated Art Experience is hosting Martin Millen, First Nation Traditional Healer and Lodge Conductor. Artists Shawn Arscott, Darlene Dove from Earthdance Studio and Biljana Banchotova(Webb) from Whirling Wisdom Studio in collaboration with Martin Millen created four 5’ x 5’ acrylic floor paintings on canvas: “The Earth World”, “The Human World”, The Spirit World”, and “The Sky World”. These paintings, otherwise known as “sacred hoops”, are as a teaching tool to share Ojibway oral knowledge of the four races coming together at the sacred fire. Each of the four races were given two gifts each. As humanity has reached a crossroad, we are asked to bring these eight gifts together to create One Great Nation. The gift of the Red Nation is to carry the Earth and Spirit knowledge. It is through the Sweat Lodge that the Red Standing People communicate this understanding. Martin will utilize these paintings to communicate sacred knowledge, to develop cross-cultural relationships and to reconnect all people back to good relations with the Earth.
Guests are asked to arrive by 1:30pm. The paintings will be on display at the Storytelling Tipi at SpiralGate of Art and Wellbeing. The three artist will be present to share their journey with the paintings. Martin Millen, will then share indigenous knowledge and ways of knowing that are communicated through the paintings. There will be also space for interactions, questions and answers. Guests who have a Drum or rattle can bring them for a song.
Refreshments will be provided.

We are dedicated to presenting meaningful art practices and works that
encompass the sacredness in inspired manifestations, freedom of expression,
inner rhythms and bring these dimensions into everyday sustainable living.
In the 19th Century Frog Hollow was a settlement in the Highlands East, Ontario, presently known as Tory Hill by its beautiful landscapes and sacred mineral trails. Home of the founding visionary artist Biljana Banchotova, with Whirling Wisdom Art Creations at her land Spiral-gate of Art & Wellness; and spirited couple Darlene Dove and Shawn Arscott from Earth Dance Studio and Eagle Eye Productions; who got inspired to seek out and anchor a studio tour that is of provincial significance in bringing together artists from diverse parts in Ontario in a collective effort to host open doorways of inspirational grounds at these most auspicious of times.
All the artists involved practise diverse forms of visual art as a full time profession and have a common vision to inspire and share their creative pursuits in a nurturing environment.
While artists open doors to their home and studios for that unique piece of artwork and meaningful gift, some may share adventurous trails on their land; some will inspire by their gardens and visionary permaculture; homestead; healing lodges; musical gardens; sacred fire; crystal trails to name few of weavings in the journey, with a profound participatory experience.
At these changing times, we hope to welcome our visitors through the designated weekends of the five month period 2021 in person, as well virtually offered, to enjoy a full weekend of creative pursuits, treasure our works and tune into the harmonious landscapes each county offers. Perhaps travel to each destination on different weekends and spend the day or two overnight at the designated opportunities...there will also be a GeoCaching site.
This being our first year we invite and are in an "open call" to other artists who might share the same vision and have the means of hosting their Ontario location; same for the ones who wish to participate as guest artists, to reach out to Frog Hollow and present their art form...
