Art for Transformation & Healing

I noticed I have been using my Facebook Page to share ideas, articles, and updates. While I love using Facebook and instagram as my main medium of sharing- focusing solely on them has prevented me from taking the time to fully express myself and share my upcoming adventures on and off the page.

During this time away I realized I want to make the switch back to using capital letters. I prefer all lower case but it can get a little confusing when I am trying to capitalize days of the week or names or other things. Also how do I decide which social media circus gets capitals and which one doesn’t?  I like the little “i” instead of “I” and I like my name to have a lower case “a”. Convention can be so lame! So I am giving this whole capital letters thing a try again.

One of the most exciting things that has happened recently is being chosen to show my work in the show MUSE: The Art of Transformation and Healing. I have wanted to participate in a juried show for some time now and I am honored to have been chosen to participate in this amazing show. If you click on the link you can learn about the show as well as the amazing art & healing opening reception. I sadly won’t be able to participate in the opening of the show.

What I wanted to share with you is a bit about my journey getting my art to the exhibit hall. It was such a magical foggy journey along the California coast. I went South on the 101 to the 1 passing through the redwoods, to Stinson Beach, finding waters shrouded with fog and clouds, bits of sunshine and at the end of the journey I stumbled upon a sound healing ceremony as I dropped off my piece of art at Commonweal. If you have never been to the Commonweal in Bolinas find a class to take and GO! It is a wonderful resources and their commitment to social change and healing is phenomenal.

Here are the photos from my short journey

up the stairs to the gallery

 

Once I got upstairs the gallery seemed to be closed- but I knocked on the door and peeked my head in. There was a circle of women sitting there and a sound healing ceremony beginning. I quickly ducked out feeling like I had interrupted something. I was then invited to come in and join them. As I walked in the door a singing bowl was held to my chest and then moved up and down my body as I stood there. I  sat in a circle with a group of women and we listened to the flute speaking directly to our souls. The leader reminded us we were there to live our creative work. I was renewed. WOW. I so needed this beautiful experience. I am so grateful for this experience. Thank you for drawing me.

This also reminded me that synchronicity is waiting to happen and there are wonderful moments in our path if we take the time to stop, look and take them. I hope you get to make it to this awesome place sooner than later.

much love,

alice
