WOMEN OF WISDOM RETROSPECTIVE 1995 – 2017
I have finally added the last seven year’s galleries to complete the retrospective of drawings created during my long relationship with this landmark women’s spirituality conference. See images inspired by many of the great women authors and teachers of our time.
INNER PORTRAIT GALLERIES
One of the deepest streams of my work opens up when I sit with someone with the intention of creating a series of Touch Drawings inspired by their presence. I have created Inner Portraits primarily through word of mouth since 1982. I know now that this work can happen in all it’s fullness via live video sessions. I am ready to make an appointment with you if you would like to experience this profound work. Explore the new Inner Portrait Galleries that help communicate some of the dimensions of this process.
UPCOMING TOUCH DRAWING WORKSHOPS
I have workshops coming up in the Pacific Northwest, Los Angeles, New York, London and Western Massachusetts. I am also exploring Chicago and other locations. The 20th Annual Touch Drawing Gathering July 16-21 is open for registration. Early Bird price until March 16. Find out more on the full schedule. To be notified if I come to your area, join the mailing list. I am also currently exploring live video workshops and best ways to support Facilitators.
SoulTouch Coloring Journals Online Special $10ea
For years I have been asking how I might harvest the wealth of images in my archives. I finally received a surprising answer – coloring journals. We are starting some pilot projects to develop examples of how they can be used for cancer, grief and creative writing groups. Contact us if you would like to help open the way for new contexts in which to use them. Find a free digital sample of Creative Awakening with four pages to color.
Interview with Herbalist Susun Weed
This was more like a conversation between friends than an interview. Susan asked about the process of creating the SoulTouch Coloring Journals, and other probing questions about my work. We just had a great conversation. It;s the last 30 minutes of her 90 minute show.
Authentic Messengers Interview
A wonderful hour-long conversation with Catherine Van Wetter on the theme Strengthening Your Soul Through Creativity.
Two Beautiful New Videos
See a three minute video of a Touch Drawing workshop. It offers a vibrant peak into the experience. The other new video is a 15 minute TED-style talk in which I share my personal journey with Touch Drawing. I presented it at ‘Women of Whidbey’.
See these videos and more on one page.
Interpretive Artist at the Parliament of the World’s Religions
I was honored to be Interpretive Artist for the Parliament of the World’s Religions. This is the largest and most historic gathering of religious leaders on the world. I created 176 drawings in the course of the week. See all the drawings along with videos of plenary events during which they were created. It was the actualization of 35 years of Interpretive Touch Drawing to draw at this landmark event!
