“We love you water. We thank you water.”
Happy Winter Solstice! There is so much to be grateful for…the stillness, the shedding, the awakening, the flow. Gracias Madre. This has been a year of profound teachings and I am savoring each one weaving its way through the landscape of my heart and out again.
Sacred Flow is three years old but today is Winter Solstice and it marks the one year anniversary of this digital sanctuary. Feeling immensely blessed to be able to share some of the explorations I find most inspiring, illuminating, and transformative.
In this time of great birthing, may you feel that:
“There is a force in the universe, which, if we permit it, will flow through us and produce miraculous results” ~ Gandhi
There is a vitality, a life force, a quickening that is translated through you into action, and there is only one of you in all time. This expression is unique, and if you block it, it will never exist through any other medium; and be lost. The world will not have it. It is not your business to determine how good it is, not how it compares with other expression. It is your business to keep it yours clearly and directly, to keep the channel open…No artist is pleased. There is no satisfaction whatever at any time. There is only a queer, divine dissatisfaction, a blessed unrest that keeps us marching and makes us more alive than the others. ~ Martha Graham
Go on exploring dear wanderers and keep the channels open. Life is a a moveable feast. In celebration of this precious life offering itself to us, may we offer the spirit of our meditation, prayer, art, dance, breath and love. May we align our hearts with the heart of nature.
I wonder, what will we sense, release, and create together, for the realization of our true nature, for the benefit of all beings, for all of life? World, may we open our hearts to your ever flowing beauty.
Psychologist Abraham Maslow thought that there were essential needs which we must satisfy first, before going after ‘more’ lofty ideals. According to his pyramid of hierarchies developed in 1943: security comes before art and nourishment before beauty. The end result: creations and lives devoid of soul. A lifeless and mundane rendition of the sacred.

I have been digesting my wonderful adventures in the big apple and getting into the swing of things again. If you need to align with the spirit of new endeavors, adventures, projects or the manifestation…
Feel the ancestral pull of nature. To unearth the story underneath. Liberate it. Ancestral is the pull to remember, to make whole and discover the nature of flow. Flow is punctuated, colored, layered by moments that narrow and widen, darken and lighten, descend and ascend through the landscape of your heart.
Peter Gentenaar’s ethereal paper sculptures inside the Abbey church of Saint-Riquier in France. I love these luminous forms juxtaposed against the ancient interior of this church. Seen together, they seem to be dancing in space. The Church, providing the architectural backdrop for their movement.
What inspires you and where do you find beauty? I am fascinated by the encounters with the natural and art filled world. I present to you my journey through Art Basel Miami, Dec. 2011. Art Basel is an art show originally from Basel in Switzerland, with art from around the world.
Live in simple faith… Just as this trusting cherry flowers, fades, and falls. ~Issa New life is blossoming with beautiful surprises that delight the heart. These new bursts of life reminds us of what is starting to blossom in our hearts and lives. Enjoy these images of the beautiful East Bay of the San Francisco…
