In the Time Between Worlds

This is my favorite time of year, when the air grows crisp, the nights cool, and change is palpable. It feels like magic in the air, the trees have been whispering all night, and the moon seems more eerie with rippling clouds passing over. I get charged up with electricity but at the same time I turn my attentions inwards, wanting to nest more, be home, read, be creative. The irony is, the ...

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.

Getting Big

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...
