I’ve been preoccupied of late writing my book…yes, yes, I’m spending a portion of each day, articulating my own evolutionary journey with my own psyche. I’m excited to have a clear sense of purpose and focus at last. Because in the end, the book will really be a treatise on the importance of ecstasy and wisdom for a new stage of ego development in us humans. And of course the practice near and dear to my heart is Ecstatic Wisdom Postures, so the book will conclude with a manual of sorts for how to establish that practice in your neighborhood!
You may not have noticed it yet, but I have a new slide show on this blog about ecstatic wisdom and our ancestors artwork, those pre-agricultural postures that help us re-member who we really are. That powerpoint, too, took a lot of time but of course life takes time
for something new and different! I can hardly wait to embark on my first online art course.
Not mine, not yet, I’m moving in that direction though! The course that will occupy me for the next six weeks is Connie Hozvicka’s BIG. I’ll be painting fearlessly in Tribe #10 with approximately twenty other women. You who know me, know that I’ve been painting big both professionally for a number of years now and have assisted many others with process painting techniques BUT I haven’t painted BIG just for myself in – well – since before I began calling myself an artist. It’s been 20 years I bet since I painted for my own personal self-discovery. I am eager. I am ready. I’m on the verge of BIG changes!
One of our tasks for the class is to keep a journal during the course/ I’m hoping that some of those entries will be food for your thoughts as well as my own. So stay tuned, ok? I’ll take pictures too of my process and progress. And post both here.
And Connie impresses me as an old soul in a young woman’s skin. I couldn’t be more impressed with my first impressions, so check her out!
