the Centre of the Squircle.
Yes. The Squircle.
Not my invention, though I do love originating words. The word ‘Squircle’ has been mentioned to me independently by several folk. It must be in the ether (the e-ther?).
What do you get when a circle of women meets on Zoom?
Circles, curves and spirals of interconnection surrounded, but not bounded, by angles and straight lines.
What do you get when the women are participating
heartfully and artfully in a workshop-playshop?
What do you get when the women connect deeply
with their creativity and with each other
in ever-evolving, respectful community?
I am loving my work.
(What a lucky duck at a time in history when global suffering is intensified by a pandemic and I’m fortunate to have work at all.)
The work? Heartwrite, Creative Sustenance for Arts Therapists, Soul Bricolage and other Art and Soul playshops. Art therapy, supervision (Zoopervision on Zoom) and Creative Purpose Coaching. Facilitating creative confidence and mindful self-compassion in a grouping of wise, kind folk – holding the space for them to discover the riches of creative practice at their fingertips. I am loving it.
The Quirky Art Heart
at the Centre of the Squircle?
(or Squirkle, which contains quirk)
It is me.
It is all of us.
I am blown away by the depth of intimacy, warmth and authentic connectedness emerging in my Zoom groups. In some cases even more so than face-to-face. Why is this?
I’d be interested to hear your thoughts.
My current theory is that people are often feeling safe and comfortable in their own homes, rather than having to wear a public persona. We are all in our own environments, with personal objects visible. We are contextualised and somehow equalised.
Does this make sense?
with love, art and soul
