Spider Medicine: The Magic Elixir of Storytelling

“The artist is a receptacle for emotions that come from all over the place: from the sky, from the earth, from a scrap of paper, from a passing shape, from a spider’s web.” ~ Pablo Picasso

Spider, as a metaphor for human creativity, is the ultimate artist. With her eight legs she wields pen, brush, camera, chisel, eraser, canvas, chalk, protractor.

She weaves all types of art media into a cosmic vehicle of meta-myth: a story that both comprises and transcends space, time, place, and the human condition.

Spider medicine brings us the vital and necessary experience of transformation. It gives us a perceptual makeover, a bigger perspective. Something to pour ourselves into. Something to grow into. A reason to expand our tiny boundary into a great horizon. It’s a crossing over into extasis, a path toward apotheosis.
