FEMININE MYSTICISM ART
I am honored to have an essay & images in this epic book, Feminine Mysticism in Art. Many years in the making, this magnum opus provides images & writings by seventy contemporary visionary artists & writers who have committed their life’s work to the re-birth of the Divine Feminine in the West. A winner of the 2018 Nautilus Book Award, it was compiled & edited by Victoria Christian & Susan Stedman.  Find out more and order the hardcopy or kindle edition.

 

DO YOU BELIEVE IN MAGIC?
THE FAIRY AND HUMAN RELATIONS CONGRESS
Watch this magical video about the Fairy and Human Relations Congress.
My thoughts and images are sprinkled throughout.

 

SACRED SONG BATHS
I am now offering twice-monthly Sound Baths on Whidbey Island. I am also arranging to hold them on many of my trips and conferences. It is my greatest joy to immerse in this deep sound field within the circle of participants. 

 

FOLLOW ME ON INSTAGRAM!
Instagram is a beautiful context to share images. I am posting short videos while at conferences, photos of my process while drawing in nature, and new images.

I
NNER 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.

 

 

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.

Online SoulCard Reading and Ecards
Give yourself an Online SoulCards Reading. We also have a better ecard program. The receiver sees the image in their email without having to click to an unknown site. Send any of over 200 images to a loved one with your own personal message. Send an ecard now.
