Under the Fallow Ground

The Winter Solstice Season, as we celebrate it in North America, has come and gone and soon we'll be back into the swing of life's routines.  It is a time where many feel the urge to start new chapters as we set fourth into a new solar year.

I find this time of year a great time to nurture the seeds of hopes and dreams for the coming seasons; Mid-Winter, with cold or sometimes even gloomy weather, is a good time to see what lies deep in the fallow ground...... Seeds of ideas that can be tended to so they can blossom into action come Spring.

This is why I find its a good time of year to hold my specific type of workshop that looks at unearthing creative passions and yearnings in a gentle way.  Through activities based in art and movement which tap into the unconscious mind, paths and journeys to new goals and ways of living can be revealed.

'Winter Goddess' by Alla Tsak

Just like the hard layers that cover the earth and ground in winter, we can also put a rigid layer around our heart and soul, so our true self becomes hidden to us.

However, as we can depend on the return of the Sun to shine on the frost and soften the earth in Winter, we can also take the time to shine a light into the depths of our being and see what wonderful seeds are there that want to grow!

Workshops Sessions are: January 19 - February 9 at Full Circle Studio in Vancouver.
Here are all the details hope to see you there!

'Sun Seed' by A. Martin-Ko

Cultivating the Creative Self
through Movement and Art-Making

Through drawing, painting, collage, journaling and movement
activities you will gain opportunities to dig deeper and uncover the
creative self often hidden in the unconscious. We will also look at how
myth, archetypes, dream life and the powers of observation are
catalysts for the creative self.

No Art or Dance experience required
