A Rich Combination of Art and Community
4 Weeks of Virtual SoulCollage® Gatherings Friday afternoons, 3:00 PT, July 10 - 31, 2020
GG's Virtual Down to Earth Studio
I invite you to join me in this 4-step process to help transition out of fear and into more conscious living. I have been reading about Deep Adaptation* for some time now, and want to apply it to my life, but I don't want to do this work alone. I'd love to have you with me on this journey.
When we read the latest news of violence, disasters, disease, extreme weather, changes to our planet and scientists' warnings, it is natural to feel unease, even fear. But we don't have to let our fear paralyze us. We can dig deep within our selves and reach out to our helpers for guidance.
Life after The Great Pause (the pandemic) is slowly returning to a new normal. Let's use visual imagery and the power of our inner knowing and wisdom keepers to guide us back to ourselves and our ability to adapt and recover.
In this 4-week SoulCollage® series we will use the imagery of SoulCollage® to delve into the 4-R's of Deep Adaptation:
RESILIENCE - What do I value most that I want to keep and how?
RELINQUISHMENT - What do I need to let go of so as not to make matters worse?
RESTORATION - What could I bring back from other cultures or other times to help me with these difficult times?
RECONCILIATION - With what and whom shall I make peace as I awaken to our mutual morality (and mortality)?
Participants will make cards on their own at home (I can probably help if you don't have supplies or images at home) then we will gather in weekly zoom calls on Friday afternoons at 3:00 pm PT for a check-in, meditation, brief teaching, and card reading. Let's find out what our SoulCollage® cards have to tell us about all of this.
$45.00 (Venmo, Paypal, or personal check to 240 Bush Street S., Salem, OR 97302)
Please contact me if you would like to attend but cannot afford the fee and we will arrange something. Please do not let financial constraints keep you from participating in this important work.
