Many a star has awaited your gazing upon it to glimmer.
Many a wave has lifted itself from the past to meet your seaside arrival.
You passed beneath an open window
when a violin yielded itself to someone.
All this was a sacred trust. Did you rise to the call?
~ Rainer Maria Rilke~
When I write my Red Thread Letters I imagine I am with you. I may know you or you may be new to my life and work. Either way, in my spirit I imagine I am where you are. I have always done this – but studying quantum physics with my husband Jonathan really brought it home. The Red Thread is physical symbol, that you can also imagine with your mind, and when I say I am sending it to you with love – you can choose to feel it. Now that might sound woo woo – but in the world of electrons and bio-photons it is actually not that far fetched.
The space we create of receiving that energy along the red thread, allows us to participate within the field that gets created through our intention. Pretty cool huh? We, as humans have often said – I am sending you my love – or I am with you in spirit. What we might not have known, is that we actually ARE doing that – it isn’t concept, and while it is magical, it isn’t magic either. I love that. And I love teaching these ideas.
When I film I do the same thing, like in my upcoming free class, Finding Feminine Flow, I truly SEE MYSELF SEEING YOU. FEEL MYSELF FEELING YOU. I am praying with my whole heart, that it reaches you where you are…..this is how I like to live. Intentionally – and actually what I enjoy so much about my work. Having a global community of thousands of women, many of which I haven’t even met – but feel connected to, is truly awe-some. Thank you for being a part of that cosmic happening!
Today I am writing to invite you to complete your 2018 with us in Woman Unleashed with thousands of other women worldwide – and to share upcoming events to guide you in designing your year. You can find the full list below. I hope our paths cross either in the quantum domain or in a physical hug!
Seeing you in person is my joy – as we need to gather in circle. But when we cannot, video is the next best thing – so come paint with me in virtual.
Not unlike the quote from Rilke – I feel like my videos and classes wait for you to look at them and then they sparkle. As if they have been waiting for you to come to seem them in order to come to life. I like living like this. My mom Caron taught me that quote when I was a little girl and the concept of the star, the flower, the sea, or you, waiting for me as I am waiting for you/it, is a good way to live.
Today we are in the studio in Sonoma getting ready for our last class of the year. So many good memories since we moved here, of gathering with friends and family. I am very grateful to have a classroom. Yesterday I got to have a cafe time with one of Sue Hoya’s best friends, Lana. She asked me what my vision was – the first thing that came out was that I am a temple keeper. It isn’t always easy to manage community space. The time in between gatherings, the classroom just sits….and it is expensive to maintain if you aren’t having events all the time too – but it is mine to do. So, I am.
Signed in the shimmer glimmer of wintering sunshine,
My free painting class for Solstice, is part of the incredible Woman Unleashed online series with my long time friend, Amber! All free, all the time, and incredible women teachers gather to share the fruit of their wild wisdom. What a wonderful way for you to stay focused on YOU during the holiday season with your creative process – it begins 12/21. Chances are you already have the materials, so let’s dive in together!
My class is called Finding Feminine Flow: Creating Alignment Between the Mind, Heart, Tummy and Womb : An Intentional Creativity Experience + a bonus Red Thread Cafe session – learn what I do to keep my Muse happy.
Next up, for those of you in the Bay Area, as the wheel turns towards the end of 2018, and begins anew for 2019, we are thrilled to invite you to come be with us in person in Sonoma – connecting, sharing in Red Thread Circle, painting and having FUN making our own book fo pleasure.
You’re invite to join me along with my friend, Lavender Grace for Your Year of Pleasure. Together let’s talk about what pleasure looks like, feels like, tastes like….and let’s SING! Many of you will remember how we sang and painted in Bella Mama.
We will explore over 13 senses together and be guided in a step by step Intentional Creativity process to create your own Pleasure Book for 2019!
Lunch, cake and materials are included (bring your own brushes if you can). We will also be serving champagne!
This class includes adult female content – so adult women only this time! It might get a little saucy. You up for that?
OHHHH I can’t wait to tell you about this – MEDICINE PAINTING in 2019: APOTHECARY in SONOMA, CA and NEW ORLEANS, LA
with Shiloh Sophia and Jonathan
This powerful process is designed to heal old stories, and transform tragedies to remedies. So if you have done tons of work and you are just ready for something that takes you the distance, this could be it. But we won’t be diving into suffering, but alchemizing pain into beauty. Yes it is possible.
The Sonoma class is February 1.2.3 and New Orleans is May 24.25.26
This experience was offered online, as well as in Sonoma and Sydney Australia in 2018. It has been such a profound experience for both women and men, and we are so excited to be offering this workshop again in 2019! Come watch the movie about our event in SYDNEY with over 50 people!
*We invite you to register now with $50 early registration savings (use promo code ‘remedy’ through 12/31)
