When I got the first whispers of in*Spiration to create this workshop Sacred Arts, Mixed Media Dialogues with the Divine Feminine, I had no real idea how it would unfold, what form it would take and what it would offer. What I did know is that I was being called to create something at the intersection of my art making, my mixed media practices and my work as a mist walker with the Goddess Circles. And I knew that I wanted to be just as much a participant in this as a teacher/guide, so I invited some Sister Keepers to join me bringing the gifts of their own magic and I invited the Muses to lead the way, allowing things to unfold in process, as given, and to allow it to be a circle, a creative circle.
Now that we are a few mOOns into our 13 mOOn journey together, it feels more like the painting at the top here,
a creative circle,
a sacred space,
than a mixed media workshop. And yet, as you can tell by the gorgeous participant's work being shared here it is that as well- so much beauty is being created so much deepening and listening, so much support.
It is Both & And...
And the "work" being created and shared in the group just blows my mind, fills my soul with beauty and makes me smile. It is good medicine,
Each mOOn we gather to explore a new theme, a new dialogue, a new conversation with the Divine Feminine and I show up to the work with all my particular conversations and try to present as the hollow bone as best I can.
And I listen.
And I lean into the Creative Process.
And I listen.
What comes through is unplanned, nonlinear, highly synchronicitic and completely supported by life and the Sister Keepers who help hold this creative space of exploration along with the women who are drawn to the circle, who create the circle with me. In this way it is true creation- allowing the universe to dream through us. It is a merging with and a partnership. It is more than anyone of us is alone. It is the inhalation and the exhalation and it is the pause between. It is the creation that comes through the stillness and the listening. It is the place of true creation.
And what I know now, is that I still don't know, but what I do know is that it is needed, we needed it, I needed it. And so I allow it to continue to unfold as given.
