Creativity and Aging, spontaneous expression and healing

vertical-shore
CREATIVITY AND AGING, SPIRIT – EMBODIMENT – TRANSFORMATION In a wonderful anthology exploring links between Carl Jung’s Analytical Psychology and growing old, much value is given to the practice of creativity as we age. In the section on “Successful Aging”, Lionel Corbett says, “Creativity can be a form of spiritual practice; it opens us to whatever wants to emerge, trusting that there is s...

What does “Awake” really mean?

gold-light
There seems to be a buzz around the word "awaken" and many different definitions to go with it! Seeing as I chose this word to describe the work I do, I thought I might share what I see in its meaning. "Awake" has many countless layers of opening to it. I hear this word used sometimes regarding whether someone is "awake" - its a bit ironic, as that implies there is a place to arrive at. In my e...

Why be Creative?

paint pots
Have you ever thought to yourself "I'm not creative" or, "I'm creative!" and thought perhaps some people are, and some people aren't? What is the big deal about taking a workshop to learn to be more creative? I hope to dispel some myths here, and in my upcoming playshop. The reality is, we are all creative, potentially, all the time.  It takes different forms for different people. When we are bloc...

0415Eclipse_Hallas
Spring is really here isn't it? A little hard to imagine, winter just zipped on past and here we are... entering a time of transition with both Spring, and the beginning of a series of eclipses. The last time this tetrad of total eclipses happened was in 2003/4. Eclipse energies are significant for making big changes. Its a perfect time for transformational work, as the energies of heavens and e...

Getting High Culture

bm06-153_mardistorm cr
The other day, I was reflecting on some of my past experiences in two seemingly disparate communities I used to be a big part of, years ago. Then it hit me. They weren't so different afterall. Both communities were built around the prospect of creating the most high-vibration, loving, and intentional community each was capable of creating. Neither were sustainable. Why? Because both communities we...

Getting Big

IMG_0864_400
Last week at Esalen was a powerful process for me. I love these intuitive painting workshops as there is no end to the self-discovery that can emerge while working with one's energy.  (note: these paintings are for process, not product, please do not judge or criticize artistically) For me, I got stuck getting super attached to something I painted, an egg. I know, it might look like just an egg to...

Multi-dimensional devices, aka “Do NOT try this at home!”

Mildar_Wormhole
Do NOT try this at home!! I can't make up stuff like this, reality is far weirder. I had a rather unusual experience a couple weeks back, with a client whom I have a history of unusual experiences, and this one stands out. Traveling my consciousness on shamanic journeys into mysterious portals in a person's body is not something I do everyday, and its not something I recommend doing, or bein...

Don’t feed the vampires

If we all did what felt right to us- instead of from a place of expectation - the world would be a better place. I might choose to cross an ocean for someone I hardly know and that would be a beautiful gift of kindness in the world. Its when we expect that person to do the same that we set ourselves up for disappointment. If we instead open to the trust the support is there for us - it comes in, s...
