Create a gentle resting, holding place for yourself
to digest your experience of the year and sustain yourself through Solstice, Christmas, Chanukah and New Year.
For some, this is a blessed time of year. For others it is tough.
I encourage you to make some space –
even twenty minutes –
to reflect on your experience of 2017.
See if a shape, colour, theme or motif
and allow yourself to write or art it.
Perhaps you will discover a guiding image to help you flow
into your strong, beautiful soul’s dance
Nestle was our final Art and Soul playshop of the year.
I asked the question:
Would you like a nourishing, spacious pause
in the midst of the seasonal HurlyBurly?
I invited participants to
‘Play with paint, paper, crayons, threads, cloth, words and glitter
a gentle resting, holding place for yourself
as you digest your experience of the year and ready yourself for the sprint towards Christmas and New Year.’
What do I notice about these gorgeous images? I see Art and Soulies deeply at work and play, following their own creative impulses, co-creating a safe, respectful space for true connection with self and others.
I also see a range of teacups.
May you find spacious, heartful, artful pause in this Christmassy season.
Warm wishes for Solstice, Chanukah and New Year too.
with love, art and soul
