    Dancing within the Creative Fire

    Dancing within the Creative Fire A few months ago I started getting in touch with a feeling of something simmering within me.  It had been brewing for quite sometime.  I had been feeling like I was off my game for quite sometime, so this little something, even though buried deep inside, felt vastly promising!  I could feel the flames licking at my heels to move me into action, but I still struggled to ignite them enough to feel a push of vital energy behind them. Tools for the Creative Fire I dug in with my best tools for stoking the creative fire to see if I could move past simmering and into…

    How I Became a Doodle Daughter

    How I Became a Doodle Daughter I keep chuckling to myself, remembering how I became a doodle daughter.  That isn’t necessarily something I have considered until today, this hand-me-down gift from my mother. I am headed off to the Houston area to teach a women’s retreat. Camp Cullen at Trinity, Texas My subject is Art Journaling and specifically doodling.  I have been journaling since I was in 7th grade, consistently, and doodling even longer. Doodling is one of those things I feel like I inherited from my mother.  I remember her sitting on a tall stool in the kitchen.  It was layered with years of contact paper.  She would talk to…

  • Creative Growth,  This Sense-ational Life

    This SENSE-sational Life: Sense of Self

    One day while sitting and thinking about my life, I realized it was just sensational.  I asked myself what made me move from not loving my life so much to being in this new place.  The answer came to me that I had connected with the senses in a very broad way.  Yes, the traditional senses had been part of it, but subtle senses were also part.  The sense of joy, a sense of gratitude, a sense of connection….when we tap into linking our conscious self with subtle parts of the self and the world around us, we can follow a path that leads us to a more SENSE-sational life.…

    Follow the Impulse

    My dear friend Jessica with Wild Heart Holistics often talks about “following the impulse.”  I remember her talking about it years ago when she was leading dance classes.  She wanted us to pay attention to how the impulse wanted us to move. At first I didn’t fully understand what she meant, but over time, I found myself trying to detect the impulse so I could follow it. The impulse isn’t something that lives somewhere in the body and yet, that is where it comes from…the body…from our being.  For me it can come from different places…. a radiating wave of urging from the heart, a subtle knowing in the brain,…

    When Saying No is Saying Yes

    I am back after a two week blog break.  I believe that is the longest bit I have taken from my blog since falling in love with the practice 3 years ago.  Not bad, huh?  My two weeks has been a beautiful balance of rest, relaxation, and re-creation.  I have been dreaming, processing, and stretching my wings. To be honest, I mixed plenty of work up with my play, but with a job like mine, sometimes it is hard to tell the two apart! Some Highlights…. I started off by heading to Austin to spend time with dear friends and take the Paint Mojo workshop with Tracy Verdugo (which I…

    Encouraging Creativity

      This is an invitation.  A calling to deepen your connection with a part of yourself that wants access to more of your life.  When we quiet the chatter in our heads enough that our hearts can be heard, we often detect the voice that quietly demands expression.  It wants to take you on a ride that you will never forget.  But fear has squelched it so often that it is threatening to go away. Where will it take us?  What will others think?  Are we doing it right?  What sacrifices will we have to make?  What will slip out once we open up? Good questions, all.  I don’t have…

  • Journey of the Inner Wanna Be's

    Witnessing Discovery

    I love witnessing discovery!  The best part of Creativity Tribe is the work I do with Creatives who find their way into the projects I offer.  Sometimes it happens in a coaching session or on one of the Party Line calls, but most recently I have been connecting during preparation for the Journey of the Inner Wanna Be project. A peek into the project so far… Below you will find a video.  Before you watch it, I want to share with you the process that went into making it.  The individuals you will see are folks from my hometown.  I consider them (and many others) my local Creativity Tribe.  Some…
