“There is a candle in your heart, ready to be kindled. There is a void in your soul, ready to be filled. You feel it, don’t you?”
“Let the beauty of love be what you do. There are a thousand ways to kneel and kiss the earth.”
“When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
“Your task is not to seek for love, but merely to seek and find all the barriers within yourself that you have built against it.” ~Rumi
Earth Ways Project 2011
Welcome to my Earth Ways Project. This project is related to the series of workshops that I offer called Finding your Place. This project, however, is absolutely free and I invite all of you to join my students and myself as we experience connecting to our sense of place. We will post our experiences each month for a year.
Using your senses and your creativity, explore your physical outdoor space. You can go to your favorite sit spot, a park, a place on your property; wherever you feel is “your space”.
Examples: You may take a camera with you to your sit spot and, while sitting in one place, take pictures of everything around you. You may walk around collecting materials from nature and then come home and make a piece of art. You may take your sketch pad with you or your journal and document your experiences. Be as creative as you wish.
After you document your experience, share it with us via your blog, Facebook, Photobucket, etc. Have fun with this.
For more in depth instruction, suggestions or assistance, consider taking my Finding Your Place beginners workshop. This workshop explores finding your sense of place from a physical, emotional and spiritual perspective.
