Yet, despite our need to break things down, the unity of life remains the foundation of all relationship. In the Yoruba language, spoken in West Africa, there is one word for being and doing, iwa (Ee-wah). The word means all that informs our existence. Beauty is part of your iwa, and relationship and community are part of your iwa. If I were to say I know your iwa", it means I know your history, your dreams, your strengths, and your frailties. It means I know what waits under your words and between your hesitations. It means I know the unity of your life. Iwa refers to an all-embracing way of relationship. Iwa evokes a quality of care that connects us to everything.
Explore the creativity of life GlobalBody is a creative process that explores movement, drawing, writing, witnessing, enactment and group expression. Vibrant health and/or healing operates on many dimensions simultaneously by attaining a state of emotional, mental, spiritual and physical awareness to transform and expand the quality of life no matter what is happening.
Sensations ~ Moving~~ Feeling ~ Imagining ~
In truth, these 4 components cannot be separated. Movement affects the way we feel, the way we feel affects the way we move. This feeds the images that get evoked and worked with through drawing and writing. One does not have to have an art background to gain insight about a deeper way of living through creativity and understanding ones self in an integrated holistic process. These tools help access your life story as ground for creating art. As life experience deepens, personal art expression expands, and as art expression expands, life experiences deepen.

Hold to the truth you make everyday with your own body
Those who do not understand
their destiny will never understand the friends
they have made
nor the work they have chosen
nor the one life that waits
beyond all others
by the lake in the wood
in the shadows
you can whisper that truth to the quiet reflection
you see in the water.
whatever you hear from the water,
remember, it wants to carry the sound of its truth on your lips...
Open to the rich tapestry of what it means to be outside, intimate with the elements.
Wether or not you fancy yourself an artist, there is some unique song, poem, dance, or other soul-infused form of expression wanting to be birthed through you. The natural world mates and creates through an alluring love dance, and it wants you to feel, remember, and express your part. Perhaps you have sensed something stalking you.....Mystery, Earth, your soul? As you open your heart and imagination to those enigmatic and mysterious fascinations that can plunge you into magic and rapture, you become vulnerable to the great changes calling from your soul and our evolving world. From this romance, something new emerges and our deepest creativity and ways of making meaning awakens. Awakening to nature necessitates mindful and body full attunement. Awareness is like the sun, forever shining As spring opening beckons us to join in, We will be spending time outdoors using the elements of earth, fire, light, water, air, space and mystery as our muse. Then time in the studio to further explore our contacts with these elements through writing, story, moving, sounding, sensing, and feeling in supportive group processes.
Please Note: We will be going outdoors in all weather except thunder and lightening, so if it is raining, please prepare accordingly. We will also have a break to eat a light snack, please bring something and anything else you will personally need.
