On Saturday, I took a four hour workshop with Dr. Minette Riordan, “The Sacred Garden: Spring Cleaning for Your Creative Spirit.”
The workshop was enriching, inspiring and very grounding. In our four hours spent writing and creating a circular ‘vision map’ of the Sacred Garden in our world right now, I discovered something really, really important to me.
One of the things Minette does in her workshop is ask really good questions. Like, really good.
Minette’s questions took me right into the core of what’s important to me and what I want to do in the world in this time in my life right now.
I am grateful.
Holding space for voices to find their unique song, beat and path underpins much of my creative expression.
Creating sacred and courageous space for all voices to be heard, honoured and celebrated is part of what I want to do more of in the world.
That’s how I feel after spending four hours with Minette and the other women in the course. Listening to the conversation, the sharing, being part of the circle really helped me gain clarity.
I was ready. A guide appeared. Creating with her guidance I gained clarity and confidence in what I want to do next in this, the Third Act of my life.
So…. stay tuned! More about that later.
For now, I’m in the fluffing up of my wings, stretching the tendons and muscles, ensuring they are ready to stretch wide and lift me up stage of my Learning to Fly.
