The 'Sweat Lodge' Gathering

Yesterday the region had ALL TIME record breaking heat - 103 degrees in Seattle. I don't know what it hit here, but we are cooking. Thank goodness for the deep coolness of the Sanctuary. It was silent day and we spread out all over the land. About 11 people came with me to the old growth forest and beach. When we met in the sanctuary at 4, we sat together in the deep silence.

What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
Well, somewhat of a calling - In 1974 I came upon the process in what i could call a 'creative revelation' - while choosing to follow a playful impulse to move my fingers on a paper towel in the printshop - rather than wipe the ink of the printing plate. I felt an enormous rush of energy move through me as my fingertips moved upon the page. As I pulled the paper towel off the ink, I saw the natural lines that had appeared from the pressure of my fingertips on the underside. Amidst childlike joy and play, I also realized that this was a universal creative process that was emerging from 'somewhere' to be available for a new stage of human creative expression and consciousness. Pretty big vision for a graduating art student! I had a sense that I was being called to share this process. This 'calling' has shaped my life, leading to this wonderful online community! I cannot spread this process all alone! YOU have an important part to play!
My experience applies to:
Therapy, Art, Creativity, Education, Spiritual, Intuitive, Childbirth, Expressive Arts, Creative Art Therapy, Organizational, Other
Other areas of interest & experience
I see myself as the 'Touch Drawing Generalist'. My hope is to put the process into the hands of people who bring it into their own special area of focus, in their own ways! I have another personal member page where I focus on my own personal work with Touch Drawing.

Indeed! I really enjoyed listening to you! I'm still catching up with some of the speakers, I liked the format, so relaxed. Thanks for creating this space, and of course, for sharing your techniques.
