Through the simple medium of Tempera paint, we learn to express our true nature and to explore our potential.
Give yourself that! Experience the joy of rediscovering yourself and the freedom this can bring to your life.
Family Constellation 
There are times in our lives when we must look beyond our selves to the places and people we come from - to where the exclusion began - in order to resolve and heal our creative blocks and our lives. 
Constellations offer the opportunity to experience and heal the relational entanglements that may be in the way of our true potential.

"I drew myself. It was all wonderfully horrible. Finally, my drawing had life in it, just like the art I had always admired."

~ Sam Anderson

Painting from the Inside Out

It was refreshing to come upon an article in the NY Times this past Sunday that described an experience with drawing that much resembles that of Painting Inside Out. The author- Sam Anderson- described his frustration and boredom with drawing- always seeing his predictable self on the paper- until he was advised to draw without looking at the paper. For the first time he was surprised at what he saw, calling it "wonderfully horrible", "wonderful" refers to the aliveness and newness of the experience; "horrible" to the mind that clings to a preconceived idea of how something should look.

This is the tension we live in.

If we can stay with the aliveness within, we realize there is no perfection, no "right way", but that all is moving and unpredictable at any given moment. Can we ride it out? Can we create and build the safety within, a firm base of home and security that helps us to do this?

Can you let go of the preconceived idea that life would be good if only you could control it? Can you surrender to your inner experience at the moment?

Can you trust yourself enough?

I invite you to try.

Final thought: "To rest in the moment with what is - whether heavy, sad, angry, light, joyful or elated is to connect to the truth of the moment. If we can do this every conscious moment, we can respond to the world from an authentic - inside out- place."
