I find that as autumn settles on the world-the air changes, the leaves drop, and the days shorten-that I too come in. Because of realizing and then paying attention to this rhythm, I have been listening and creating in new ways.
My gardens and yards, house needs and compound growth, take up the lion’s share of my energy and hours when spring finally turns on. This carries through the summer with shortened bursts of studio time.
But when this autumn pulling-in begins, I am keen to respond wholeheartedly. My subconscious has danced with new ideas while tilling the soil of the raised beds. My hands have begun to itch to let what has lied latent in my creative heart burst forth. My soul and my fingertips begin to forage in the studio, reorganize bits and collections, regather connection with the creative expression I call my own.
Some of my most soulful creative work evolves from this depth rhythm. From this noticing and then paying attention, to the natural flow of creative energy.
This year, I want to begin in this autumn-space with you. Where WinterWax has in the past held the space for beginning, this shift to autumn is the truest place of beginning for me-of creative beginning.
With this, I invite you: To gather for one, three or four days-you decide your parameters. Just eight of us total, settling in, learning deep, exploring wide.
The intentions are to:
I don’t expect it to be good; I know it will be great. For those of you unaware, I have been on sabbatical since January. In returning now, in this manner, with the intentions in my heart, I give you my best. I hope you will come along and receive it~
