If you’re anything like me, a creative soul living in the real world, achieving and maintaining peace and balance in your life is difficult. Let’s face it, the real world is a mess and our lives reflect and multiply that in many ways.
As I travel along my path, I keep my eyes open for possibility and sometimes I find true gems as my reward.
One such gem came to me through a network of creative women who took me in and gave me wings. April Cole runs a group on facebook called, The Studio – artist lounge. The group is a closed one, but genuine souls in search of healing through art can be added from time to time. This February, she added a healing art therapy component to the group and it promises to be an amazing journey. It takes a commitment to self and peers that some may not currently possess, but if this sounds like something you can embrace and follow through with, I invite you to request an invitation to join. There are introspective, artistic exercises each month, not to mention a very supportive network of artists of all levels.
Melody Ross and the Brave Girls Club Team are a loving, nurturing group whose mission is to spread love and art. If you’ve never heard of them, you should definitely check them out. (http://bravegirlsclub.com/) Their Soul Restoration courses are deep and thought provoking with an unrivaled healing component. This month, Melody released a free course, “The Thing About Love.” (http://bravegirlsclub.com/archives/archives/series/the-thing-about-love) I promise that it threatens to tear down the walls of those hard core, societal ideas about love, replacing them with TRUTH. A lesson we all need to learn and/or be reminded of.
Most recently, I received an invitation from Carrie Brummer (of artistthink.com) to join in on her free webinar, How to Draw and Color a Mandala, on Wednesday, March 4th. She released this video as a means of invitation and introduction: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kr8FUu6sVSE I’m in! You ought to join us!

Looking forward to spending the remainder of the day in the studio!
Happy Trash to you, until we meet again!
