Today, I put the geraniums that had wintered over inside and were in full bloom out on the porch even though it is not yet May. I am ready for Spring, the soft rain, the brightening light, longer days, lighter or no layers needed, the soft ground. My birthday is in April and this rose was centered in a spring bouquet of flowers I received in honor of my birth. I love all flowers but roses hold a special place as a representation of the layers of love in the heart and soul, layers of complexity, layers of beauty, layers of growth, connectedness, what is open, what remains hidden, what is possible, color, fragrance, patience, softness. So this rose is inside and the geraniums are outside. The rose is now receding while the geraniums burst. Life.
A good friend died this past month…her death fast and holy, like a shooting star lighting up the heavens….bright, bright, bright and then gone. She leaves in her wake the legacy of the profound ways she touched so many people, her deep faith in humanity’s goodness. And the reminder that every moment matters.
I am paying more consistent attention these days to exploring through painting, appreciating the mystery and delight of the process and how painting somehow has the capacity to reach something in me which then feels completed or expressed by the painting’s existence. I am fascinated by this and by how words are not a necessary part of this completion. Life beyond language.
Several offerings this Spring and Summer. On Saturday, May 19th, I am offering a Family Constellation workshop. These workshops are very powerful and healing whether you come as a representative or as someone who is presenting a personal constellation for the group to work with. They can clear both specific and universal disruptions in the flow of love that moves through the generations, and in fact moves through all things. The complete description is in the Calendar section of the website. Just click on the date in the calendar and the full description will come up. Contact me to register, or for more information.
In midsummer, either July 6, 7 or 8, I will be offering a day long Authentic Movement workshop. Details will follow soon, but do let me know if you are interested and I will be sure you receive a flyer.
This year, I have the honor of offering an Authentic Movement workshop at the Women’s Herbal Conference on Friday , August 24th. So many bright beings come together at this gathering. Perhaps I will see you there! https://www.newomensherbal.com
As always, I offer individual sessions, across the dimensions of what I am versed in, from bodywork to sound healing, family constellations, authentic movement, spiritual clarity, energy work.
Thank you for reading. Let me know if I can be of service or if you would like to register for one of my offerings.
as the spring light shines,
