    Body Wisdom + Trance-Formation

    Body Wisdom Wednesday is a new series for me.  It invites me into relationship with all my bodies…the physical, spiritual, and emotional.  I invite the bodies to dance with my intuition and creativity, finally capturing something of myself with a small image on a card to add to my growing collection. I have been cultivating Body Wisdom for decades.  It is amazing what the body knows….what it remembers.  For example, when I was very, very young I had a traumatic event take place.  I never forgot the happening, but I was so young that I didn’t have a sense of exactly where it happened in my hometown.  One day when…

    Inside Creativity Tribe Studio

    I have been a busy little Creative lately.  The studio is a royal mess… I say royal because I think it reflect a bit of Queen of Creativity vibe to it which I take in stride.  All that creativity is coming out of a desire to express the big journey my life is taking as I live with cancer until my upcoming surgery.  I know I mention it often in my posts, but my life really revolves around that deep self-care these days and I want to share that part of my journey with you. I feel like we all have something that drives us closer to care for yourselves.…

    A Sense of imBalance

    My life has gotten out of balance….literally.  Last week I somehow twisted my knee.  I woke up one day to tightness, mild swelling, and an unstable joint.  When I wanted to walk, I had to hop and stoop to get around.  I am still all bent up.  The pain isn’t bad.  It just doesn’t really work right.  Needless to say, I am jumping into self-care mode to help get my knee what it needs. This afternoon I am headed to the chiropractor; tomorrow, a massage.  Even with that though, I think the quirk in my knee must be less about something physical and more about something desiring more balance in…

    Reflection Moon & Creativity Boosters

    Body Wisdom Project Each New Moon for this year, I join with my friend (and sometimes workshop partner) Jessica to explore our relationship with the body by choosing a focal word for lunar cycle.  We have been focusing on February’s Believing Moon, exploring what it means to believe in the wisdom of the body.  As is often the way with intuitive journeys like the one we are creating together, each level can unfold with a certain balance of mystery and synchronicity. The mystery comes out of traversing the unknown.  This is especially true when you give yourself up to the guidance of a collaborative experience.  Having Jessica’s input makes my…

    Body Wisdom Project {Believing Moon}

    This moonth’s focus word for the Body Wisdom Project is believe.  The Believing Moon…..as I like to think of it.  There are many ways to interpret that word and even more ways to apply it. My intention is to hold onto what I know of the word and let it be my partner as I investigate the wisdom the body has to offer. This has brought up a lot of uncertainty for me.  What does it mean to believe in my body?  What does it look like to live in a way which honors the wisdom of my body as if it is real…as if I can believe in it…

    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…

    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…
