Going Inward at Lucky Star

1 Flares Filament.io 1 Flares ×

Summer and most of Autumn have floated away on the winds.  Work on the farmhouse has pre-occupied us to the point of distraction.  Living in one house but not quite and bringing back the light and whimsy to another, but not quite yet.  Lucky Star Art Camp provided an opportunity for me to teach something I truly love.  BIG ROCK OBSTACLE MOVING.  Creativity is of the air we breathe and somehow we are so afraid of our own gifts, or have been conditioned to believe otherwise.  Gifts from spirit that infuse our being.  Teaching reminds me of this over and over again.  The gratitude I feel when spirit touches someone and they see how beautiful they are inside, and to me. The childlike delight in accepting their own creativity if only for that day, a step forward to realization and action.  These smiles tell it all. ( I apologize to my first class that was so large they scattered to the four winds before we could get a group shot.) I was so honored to spend my days with these amazing women who went for it and discovered new things about themselves. I can’t wait to see where they go.

This year I was determined to take some classes of my own and relax into the spirit of the retreat.  Camp Waldemar is a magical place full of light and the sounds of the river, I really wanted to savor my experience this year.  The lovelies Elizabeth Quigg and Mindy Lacefield, created the inner peace I was hoping to find.  Both classes had a moving meditation element to them, a connection to nature and one experience built upon the other and I found a spiritual re-invigoration that needed to be cared for.  Friends old and new, deepened communication, real tenderness and communion in this group as a whole.  There are memories I will cherish for a long time. Lisa Hamlyn Field has created the perfect sleep-away camp for her many daydream believers…

The gallery is a smattering of images of my classes and the camp.  These photos are a reminder of me to be present and to let the thread of connection weave it’s way into my daily life, because what do we have but our daydreams and each other.  Love you all.

  6. I so enjoyed your class + think of you when I see the art I created there. Loved the art camp experience, I’m quite addicted to that kind of energy. Can’t wait for next year.

  7. I think it’s wonderful that you had the chance to go and teach again. From your words here, it is obvious it was a smashing success. I hope the special time you had has recharged your batteries and you are able to dive in and finish your farmhouse. Not finished just yet, right? I love how you have still made time for art making through it all, and that you went to teach and I love seeing all these happy faces and beautiful art.
