Wednesday July 5, 2023 4 pm in Greece will be 6 am PST / 9 am EST I will be leading a walk as part of the Walking Visions: Prespa walking art encounters conference in Prespa Greece. I will be posting the scores here. Please mark your calendars and join from wherever you are. You can email me any writing, images, sound you gather along the way. This walkshop explores walking as a portal for dreaming. The encounter here is with the self and engaging dreaming awake as means of amplifying vision. Dreaming into Being is a process of opening up, reaching beyond what we know and bringing that vision from other realms into this realm, here and now. This highly intuitive and creative endeavor is incredibly potent. We will dream awake, daydream, and perhaps even tap into a collective dreaming. Elements of this workshop will draw directly from shamanic traditions to assist in shifting the assemblage point. The physical part of this practice will be a slow meandering, less focused on the external as it will be on an inner terrain as walking invites an altered state. Each participant will receive a small notebook for writing, drawing, mapping, and recording their experiences. Several scores will guide the journey. We will start with remembering, looking back in time through the details of specific important moments in life. Mid-way the practice shifts to being fully awake in present time, tuning into sensory-awareness through embodiment exercises to create spaciousness or an internal silence to invite in the new. The final part of the walk will be a dreaming awake practice, looking forward in time, casting a net into the wild sea of possibility, calling in vision. The walking encounter then becomes a visioning practice, expanding a sense of capacity and extending out beyond what is known, out into a realm of magic and no limits, where anything is possible. The final gesture will be a closing circle to share.

Let’s continue to gather together to dream. Next month I am offering another online workshop of creative inspiration, guided journeying, reflective writing and art-making on Sunday, October 1st from 1-4 pm PST. The theme for the June workshop was Sanctuary in the Self, focusing on the third chakra. For Center of the Rose, we will delve into the fourth chakra to explore the petals of the heart, finding balance in both self-love and intimacy with others. Here we will explore devotion, forgiveness, and connection. Conscious opening and closing of the heart is how we cultivate the capacity to stay present in the face of both pleasure and pain. Giving and receiving is essential, and sometimes the receptive aspect can be the most challenging. We will touch on topics such as attachment and freedom, eros and thanatos, grief and loss, approaching the wound of heartbreak as a portal for healing. As we move into the very center of pain we often find spaciousness. Central to this chakra is the element air which can create real transformation through the breath, creating space to feel the full range of emotions fully and move it all through. This mysterious unfolding offers tremendous integration, transformation and liberation. Weaving together themes inspired by a range of visual art, esoteric teachings such as the chakra system from yoga, archetypal images from alchemy and the occult, as well as tools from the world of coaching, we will dive into a multidimensional exploration. This workshop will include a slideshow followed by a guided journey / meditation about being in the center of the heart. I will be leading us through breathwork, embodiment practices as well as a guided meditation. We will move into writing / reflection with a few prompts and then create artwork based on what arises. You can draw, paint or work with mixed media in collage. Or do something different. On the idea of dreaming into being: I am dreaming a lot these days. Dreaming awake, daydreaming, lucid dreaming, deep sleep dreaming, and perhaps even tapping into a collective dreaming. For me, dreaming awake often feels like expanding my sense of capacity. I extend out beyond what I already know, out into a realm of no limits, where anything is possible. Dreaming into being is a process of opening up, reaching and then bringing some idea or vision or inkling from that realm into this realm, here and now. This is a highly intuitive and creative endeavor that is incredibly potent. You are invited: Please join me for this online workshop on Sunday, October 1 from 1-4 pm PST. It will take place online and is free. It’s a powerful time to dream now as we move toward the balancing point of the fall equinox.

For Finding Your Voice, we will delve into the fifth chakra to explore the throat, realms of communication, voice and vibration. Here we will explore sound, expression, and communication. Short writing prompts will touch into the stories we tell, the secrets we keep, the truths we swallow, and the silences we perpetuate and endure. We will practice attuning to a sense of resonance that is both palpable and visceral as well as more subtle and intuitive. Self-expression is the gateway between the inner and the outer, between mind and body. While unlocking a flow of creativity is essential, blockage in the throat can be utterly debilitating. What is blocking us from expressing our truth, our outrage, our magic? What makes us hide in silence? Deficiency here arises as an inability to find your words. Excess is when our talking becomes a defensive tactic, controlling the narrative, the conversation, the storyline. Central to this chakra is the element sound which can create real transformation through vibration and resonance. We will explore aspects of the throat through seed sounds, mantra and chanting as well as drumming. Seeking balance in the throat, we will touch on topics such as the art of conversation, the give and take of authentic expression and effective listening. Communication is creativity in motion, in connection, in exchange. Combining will and consciousness, the voice becomes a conduit for creating real intimacy, a sense of really being heard. Join us...

For Awakening Vision, we will delve into the sixth chakra to explore all things related to the mystery of the third eye. Here we will be exploring intuition, imagination, insight, dreams, and vision. Our sight gives us guidance. We have the capacity to see an arc of past, present and future. Central to this chakra is the element light which brings clarity. We will touch on topics such as activation of the third eye through meditation. By improving focus and concentration, inner sight evolves out of an ability to calm the busy mind, to see beyond. The third eye serves as a portal to other realms including cosmic blueprints and dreams and even archetypal levels beyond the personal. Psychic powers and clairvoyance (”clear seeing”) open up other means of knowing, other ways of wisdom. Dreams link the conscious and unconscious mind, presenting alternatives to waking reality. We need to break free of established patterns. Vision leads us forward, illusion holds us back. Dreams are where we experience the non-linear, the irrational, the impossible. We find access to a sense of no limits. Shifting the assemblage point, we can suddenly see our lives from a new vantage point. Opening the third eye allows us to see the big picture, to expand beyond what we already know. We can perceive what lies beyond our wildest dreams, beyond what we can name. By moving into a more archetypal identity, we begin to know ourselves through dreams, symbols, imagination, art, relationships. Here lies the splendor of recognition in which we come to know ourselves in a new way. Join us... REGISTER NOW

“To arrive at the fully blooming lotus crown chakra, our stem needs to be connected all the way to Earth, our roots deep in the ground. Through this connection, our lotus in nourished and continues to bloom, its petals ever unfolding. Our purpose is to liberate the spirit, but if we are to avoid getting lost in the infinite we must retain a home to which the spirit can return. This is the challenge of a psychologically balanced seventh chakra.”  -Anodea Judith Eastern Body, Western Mind. In this workshop we will dive into the seventh chakra to witness and experience the unfolding of the thousand petaled lotus. Becoming Connection invites you into a deep encounter with your Higher Self, however you may understand it. Here we will deepen our explorations of meditation, cultivating awareness through a sense of merging with divine consciousness and the realization of our own true nature. Here we will explore witness consciousness, the part of us that watches the part that is doing. Central to this chakra is an encounter with the mind, thinking thoughts, all the thoughts and beliefs and then moving beyond thought into a place of pure being. Becoming one, we do not lose ourselves. We will touch on topics such as addiction, attachment and non-attachment, leading to forms of transcendence. Opening the crown chakra is about expanding awareness, expanding our capacity to engage higher and higher levels of voltage. This is the realm of spiritual awakening, epiphany, mystical experiences and altered states of consciousness. It is also the elusively simple act of paying attention to what is. We will explore several different types of meditative practices and then translate those experiences into creative expression. Join us... REGISTER NOW

Mondays March 11-April 1, 2024  7-7:30 am PST online FREE I am offering a 4-week series of 30 minute morning meditations as part of the The Radiance Sutras Instinctive Meditation course I am taking. Your body loves to meditate. In fact, you probably have already discovered gateways into meditative states without realizing it. We all have this instinctive capacity which helps us regulate stress and recover from deep exhaustion. Even after just a few minutes we can access states of deep rest and renewal. This will be a great way to start off the week. Instinctive Meditation opens new doors. This practice is about becoming deeply intimate with yourself, with life and with the cosmos. This is an invitation to become more aware of the flows of energy that are unique to you. We meditate so that we can be more present in our lives. We build a capacity to respond rather than react. These meditations will include readings from The Radiance Sutras by Lorin Roche which is a yogic text from Vijnana Bhairava Tantra tradition. "The text describes 112 different doorways into meditative experience: breathing, subtle motion, mantras, music, dancing, eating, sex, wandering in nature to the point of exhaustion, gazing out at space, being scared, being in brilliant sunlight, being in total darkness, and so on." No experience necessary. Please share! #upwiththesun #radiancesutras #morningmeditation Session Dates: March 11, 18, 25 and April 1 By donation. Register here.

Broken Open will focus on the topic of heartbreak, grief and opening. Have you ever experienced the pain of heart break? A broken heart can transform into an opening heart. Our deepest wounds are the pathways back to our sacred essence. We will be exploring the breaking open of the heart through meditative practices, writing reflection and creativity, inviting in a sense of flow. The focus of this class will be guided meditation, self-reflective writing and creative mixed media explorations to transform stories of loss into visions of growth, strength and empowerment.
