    This Sense-ational Life {playfulness}

      This Sense-ational Life is a blogging series that explores the senses as a way of cultivating a more mindful, connected way of life.   Sense of Playfulness When I was in 8th grade, I started taking theatre and never wanted to stop.  I realized it was a way to play and still get credit in school. What a no-brainer!  As I got older, I found ways to keep that connection to play.  I took jobs that allowed me to play and get paid for it.  And eventually became a kind of play leader for other adults. Here is a list of a few playful jobs I have had….     A…

    Full Moon Mindfulness

    A few weeks ago, at the dark of the moon to be exact, I began a personal exploration of my relationship with my body.  I am approaching this journey with my friend, Jessica.  We call it the Body Wisdom Project.  Our intention during this moon cycle is to LISTEN. It seems like a no brainer; LISTEN to the body.  But how often do we do it?  How often do we get quiet enough to tune out the world and  its messages and messiness, and tune into the body’s subtle whispers.  How often do we follow the body’s advice?  How often do we honor the wisdom it offers? The Body Wisdom…

    Seeing in the Dark

    When I was a young girl, my father told me a good deal didn’t always mean less money spent.  He explained… a well made product that costs a bit more was a better buy than the same thing made with less care at a cheaper price. I am sure you have heard the same thing. I have heard that wisdom packaged in different ways through out my lifetime.  But today, I am exploring how to apply that wisdom to life itself.  As more people find their way to Creativity Tribe, I work to define what this space offers them.  When it comes down to it, I think it offers them…

    This Sense-ational Life {direction}

    This Sense-ational Life is a blogging series that explores the senses as a way of cultivating a more mindful, connected way of life.  This week’s post is inspired by the 3 Day Right Brained Business Plan Workshop I attended through CreativeLIVE with Jennifer Lee, the brain-child and heart-matrix behind Right Brained Business Plan.     .-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-.-. SENSE of DIRECTION: Moving forward When I talk about the senses with this project, I love to play with some of the popular phrases we have for them.  When Aristotle classified the senses over two thousand years ago, he defined those same five we learned as children. Over time, the  philosophers and scientists have expanded their meanings.…

    All is Well

    One day several years ago as I was sitting in one of those over-stuffed chairs that used to be scattered through out the local Barnes & Noble, I began a light conversation with a man…a stranger.  I don’t remember much of what we talked about, but I do remember how he ended the conversation. He simply said, “All is well.”  And walked away. All is well. It echoed in the space where he had been sitting, lingered there for a long while until it found its way into my journal. All is well. I carried the words around for me for quite awhile, pondering them.  What if….All is Well? I…

    Body Wisdom Project {Listen}

    A few days ago I picked up an old journal. Inside I found an entry about wanting to pay closer attention to my body and promises that I would practice more self-care. The shift in my relationship with my body from that time to this is quite apparent.  Self-care one of my personal core values.  But, I crave a connection that is even deeper. I crave more peace, less doubt. I crave a level of understanding and interaction that can only come from a practice of listening to the wisdom my body offers. This idea isn’t new to me. Over the last several months, I have been preparing to make…
