I started watching the skies when I was a little girl. I would take my blanket out to the front yard of my parents’ house in the country and look up at that huge field of openness that spread out in front of me. The sky was massive. I would feel my heart traveling at the speed of curiosity to explore as many stars as I could. They felt so far away, untouchable. Then, when I was nearly flying with awe, my attention would find its way to the Moon, that glowing ball of loveliness. It was closer and almost seemed to pop off the velvet cloth of night. I would reach up and trace its outline with my finger, my hand appearing to be just as big as it was. It became my playmate, the light spilling between my fingers, its shape fitting perfectly in my hands.
That is when I learned to Touch the Moon, to open up to its symbolism, rhythms, and wonder. As an artist, self-care enthusiast, and soul*full woman, I have used my connection with the Moon to bring meaning and magic to my life. The Moon has offered consistent presence on the horizon to help me keep my bearings when I felt lost and has served as a looking glass in which I discovered my own amazing brilliance.
Over the course of the last year, I have been dreaming on a workshop that would help me capture the essence of what of the Moon has to offer us. I think I have finally done it!
I am excited to announce Touch the Moon, an e-course and art-ivity gathering about connecting with your creative, intuitive spirit. Touch the Moon explores lunar rhythms, folklore, and mythology while encouraging you to slow down and go within. Delve into your own personal waxing and waning cycles through art, meditation, and personal symbolism. Experience dynamic creative art-ivities including journaling, art dolls, touch drawing, and collage. It’s the perfect way to bring a bit of meaning and magic into your life.
Touch the Moon will kick off Wednesday, August 27 (a few days before the Blue Moon) and go through Wednesday, October 31st (Halloween, a few days after October’s full moon). The entire course is only $33. I will have more information for you soon. Subscribe to this blog or keep in touch through the Creativity Tribe Facebook Page to stay in the loop!
