The encaustic medium is magical, vibrant and translucent.  My creative muse guides, inspires and feeds my soul through this medium, mixed media and collage.  Blessing me with endless moments of creative joy and harmony...providing those ahhaa moments about life.  Join me on this creative journey, spend some time reading my musings about this life, the blessed other souls that come into contact with mine, however brief or often, that can leave everlasting imprints on our journey....perhaps our lives might share some similarities, bringing us closer and more connected...and less isolated.

"I suppose there is one friend in the life of each of us who seems not a separate person, however dear and beloved, but an expansion, an interpretation, of one's self, the very meaning of one's soul." ~ Edith Wharton

Here's to finding those expansive moments.....

Walking a 'labyrinth' - opening the heart.

Did you know that walking a Labyrinth is an ancient and spiritual tool, for prayer, meditation, reflection and finding your inner voice?  I found this to be true after walking the labyrinth at the Ignatius Jesuit Centre of Guelph.    Labyrinth's can provide answers where you had been seeking them before, aiding you in finding voice and strength.  Recently I had the pleasure of joining three wonderful facilitators, Jill Davey, Lorraine Gane and Debbie Danbrook at a wonderful workshop called, "Journey to the Heart, Pathways of Sacred Connection."  What a wonderful day this was, between the soulful Shakuhachi flute sounds,  the healing, flowing  and gentle yoga meets dance movements, and the meditating walk into the Labyrinth, while manifesting and releasing my heart's intentions... this whole event was very grounding and centering...and I believe it had a direct impact on opening up my right brain, expanding those creativity spaces.  What joy I found myself experiencing days after in the studio playing with colour, paints and expressing emotions through my creations.  Thank you universe.
