Profile Information

My interest is in
Touch Drawing Personal Use, SoulCards Personal Use, Facilitating Touch Drawing
What brings you to an interest in Touch Drawing or SoulCards?
I am an artist, and at the time I found Touch Drawing, I was engaged in a year long mentorship teaching me how to incorporate the expressive arts into "Equine Guided Practices". Touch Drawing seemed to be the perfect form of artistic expression that could be so quickly and accurately conveyed while in the presence of horses and the intuitive healing that occurs within the roundpen. I was very interested in specifically incorporating this type of Expressive Art form, and did have the opportunity to do so immediately following the 10th Annual Gathering of 2006. I look forward to many more opportunities to share this again.
My experience applies to:
Art, Creativity, Spiritual, Intuitive, Expressive Arts, Creative Art Therapy
Other areas of interest & experience
I am interested in creating community and unity among us, and to this end, I am deeply interested in our conscious evolution. I am fascinated by the web, and the connections this can allow to form among us, and what new potentials of organization may form through this new medium.
Have you done Touch Drawing?
Yes
Have you facilitated Touch Drawing?
Yes
In what setting have you facilitated?
Around Vancouver, BC at an Equine Experiential Learning workshop, we incorporated Touch Drawing as a part of our weekend with the horses.
I attended the Annual Touch Drawing Gathering on Whidbey Island, Washington
2006
Do you facilitate SoulCards with others?
No
Is there anything else you would like us to know about you?
I have envisioned a way of moving artwork, which I call art caretaking - and am using this to move my own art, and I welcome other artists and lovers of art to join me. I am creating a website which will facilitate this, and I believe Touch Drawing is an art medium which may work synergistically with Art Caretaking, expanding the potential for each movement. See this page on my website, which I wrote in 2002, when I first thought of this concept for my own artwork: http://amandakoh.com/pages/caretakers.html

Mark Runge's art burnings

I just saw this post on Mark's page about a couple of images he created by burning watercolor paper..... Check them out! (He's also looking for more creative burning techniques, so give him some tips if you think of any!)

Hi Dearie,
Is this a test to see whether I can send a private message? Would love to have you visit...and I tend to have a full schedule and long work days, which i am needing to shorten. Place to stay is probably not available. I have space issues, share someoone else's home, and have not been successful in creating space to accommodate guests. We can be creative ...Would love to hear of your world and maybe I just need to take the weekend and wisk us to the beach..
Love to you,
Shemaya

Hey Tentie
Have been thinking of you so many times, especially everytime that I read your inspiring "assisting the one." Hope to have you join in the Luminary wave of light.
Love to you,
Shemaya

Sharing Hope, Bringing Light


We (Shemaya Blauer and Aurelia Navarro) invite you to join us in creating and dispersing LIGHT in the form of luminaries to honor, and celebrate HOPE. We can think of no greater time to ignite this vision than to celebrate the inauguration of President Barack Obama on January 20, 2009.

We are calling this The Luminary Project and see it as a country-wide, even world-wide, wave of light flowing from East to West, tangibly demonstrating our common sense of hope and inspiration.

We chose luminaries because they are simple, inexpensive, accessible, and easy to embellish. They serve to remind each of us that despite our challenges and losses, we carry light and hope – indeed, we are light and hope.

We encourage people to create, gift, and distribute luminaries as a symbol of hope and an opportunity to promote a positive image and message through creativity, community, and blessings. Imagine “luminary parties” for group crafting and embellishing of luminaries, and then a riot of light and color blooming throughout Inauguration Night.

All you need is a supply of small paper bags (white or brown are the easiest to find), some sand or cat litter for stability, and a tea light or LED for illumination. Add scissors, markers, paints, and creativity – and go to town.

Dear Amanda,
Thank you so much for your quick and easy info. I deleted and added photos. I also want to say how beautiful your paintings are. Horse spirits. I can feel them! With love, Pat

Dear Amanda,
It is so lovely to look at your site and remember the dear soul that touched my own. Your drumming for our Earth Nest decent gave such depth and connection for me. I thank you.
Tonight I tried to add some pictures and ended up showing them twice. How can I remove duplicate images and also turn pictures around. You'll see what I mean. Thank you much, my friend. With love, Pat

Amanda! Happy happy to you! Did you have a good one? I started working on my little video from the gathering ,Theo is helping me so fun! Did you go to the spa? I think I need to go soon. Eric got his house today it all feels very time out of time and with that big moon it's kinda wild over here on the Island. There is a fair here this weekend lots of sound and lights at night.
