I’ve probably never been more relieved to enter a fresh new year. In 2017 I encountered parts of myself I hadn’t known existed and self discovery ain’t always pretty but I maintain that it is good. As I look to 2018 I want to keep the humility of my humanness that last year gifted me and find a way toward boldness rooted in love.
“...be good at what you’re good at. Many of us spend time and energy trying to be something we are not. But this is a move against the soul, because individuality rises out of soul as water rises out of the depths of the earth. We are who we are because of the special mix that makes up our soul. Power begins in knowing this special soul, which may be entirely different from our fantasies about who we are or who we want to be.” -Thomas Moore
I’ll be leading a workshop this Saturday, January 6, 9am-12pm at The Hive. Andria Yates of Reach and Thrive will be joining Amelia Peterson and myself to explore this source of power through guided meditations, exercises from the Alexander Technique, and the creation of blind-contour self portraits. No experience or skill necessary. Register at thehiveknox.com
Hope you can join us for a creative practice to begin our new year.
