Here I sit (and spin), half-way between the Summer Solstice and the July 2nd New Moon (which in South America offers up a solar eclipse!) I’m loving this energy for the activation of something new. I am using this activation energy to launch my Spin to Activate 6 Day Online Retreat!
When I closed my studio/gallery over two years ago I was troubled by the state of our 2016 election, the challenges of maintaining a profitable business (utilizing many of the systemic masculine standards of success while yearning for a more femin-istic approach) and a desire to find more time and focus on the creation of my art. On top of all of that I still had a strong desire to offer something with deeper meaning and lead others to access their own creativity as a path toward solutions to the issues I was challenged by out in my community and the world at large. So, I began where every good heroine’s journey begins, in my heart. I got a spinning wheel and started spinning. It became the perfect process for a moving meditation, a daily quiet contemplative practice as I’ve previously posted as I did HERE. A ritual for both sitting in stillness, yet the beginnings of activating something that had been stirring within….
Working with the Dream Midwife, Rebecka Eggers I’ve been created an online journey which is designed to guide others on this path of utilizing the ancient art of yarn spinning as a contemplative moving meditative practice. This journey is called Spinning Straw Into Gold. And I invite you to read with me the introduction Piercing the Ragged Stillness .
Maybe you are feeling the same dilemmas I have been? Maybe this introduction to my story stirred something within you? Whether you are new to the idea of yarn spinning or a seasoned spinner I would love to have you join me for the rest of the story. And that leads me to this gift for you…
For the next few days I am offering a unique opportunity. Yes, I am looking for a few interested people who would like to join the free Pilot for my Spin to Activate 6 Day Online Retreat. I will be starting this retreat next Monday, July 1st, so don’t delay. Don’t worry if you aren’t available next week for the retreat. The content will all be delivered to your inbox, waiting there as a free gift for you to access at your convenience. And don’t worry if you don’t have a spinning wheel either! You can travel on this journey with a simple drop spindle and a small bundle of fiber (Go to my online shop for my Spin to Activate Drop Spindle Kit) Now all you have to do to get started is go HERE to find out more and to register. Oh, and did I mention IT’S FREE!
