"If I stay long enough in the studio, just stay with the work even if it doesn't feel great or seem satisfying or directional or conclusive, if I just stay to tend and garden, then my mind gradually yields control to the more automatic labor of painting, and with that comes a sweet spot in the process further down, a worn groove, a sense of ease."
The first time I read this book I was in my mid-30s, and re visited the book a couple times after that. It is, for me, one of the books I have read and reread throughout my life and each time found a deeper meaning. Each decade of our life brings changes to explore. This book is in my permanent library.
When I saw this class available, I immediately signed up! It has been very enriching to be able to discuss and share with a group of women of similar ages, and at the same time share some of our universal life events as a woman.
Our journey is guided by Dr. A. She is brilliant! She facilitates our group with insights, and leads us to deeper thinking. The journaling has been thought-provoking. The class has opened me up to to a more vibrant awareness of self, soul, and female archetypes.

Went way to fast!
