Presidential Journeys is the outcome of ongoing shamanic rituals conducted to heal the United States. Shamanic journeys are performed to visit U.S. Presidents and important men who could have been President. Information from the journeys is used as visual/design elements in the paintings in an effort to detach negative energy from the spirit of the individuals and our nation. Robert extensively reads biographies about the men prior to the painting. He has also journeyed to several of the President's wives in an effort to inquire about adding female voices/paintings to the series. He has been "told" that that is not appropriate at this time.
