Inspired by Energy

Love is energy and energy is everything!

Every time I see some­ones art, the gift of nature’s beauty or a sense of spirit I’m grate­ful, I’m inspired! With some, the inspi­ra­tion is so pow­er­ful I have to weave some beads and cre­ate a lit­tle piece of art myself! It’s a thrilling ride, a color fes­ti­val and I don’t want to go home.

Again it’s time to share a pow­er­ful gift…Energy! Thoughts and visu­als pro­vided me to cre­ate another visual expe­ri­ence that will delight the eyes and lift the spirits!

Yoga and Art Weekend Retreat

This past weekend I attended a Yoga and Art Retreat at Mt. Olivet Retreat Center in Farmington, MN, a beautiful winter destination just south of the Minneapolis/St Paul metro.   I was granted  a scholarship from Friends of the Arts of St Louis Park Minnesota to attend this retreat.   Friends of the Arts graciously granted me a new opportunity to experience a mix media medium and revelation with self-healing through inspirationally designed art and yoga activities. Digging deep inside for that inspirational sparked with new found creativity that will aide me to inspire my students when teaching bead weaving and design.   Again I would like to thank Friends of the Arts of St Louis Park Minnesota for this lovely experience.

Venue

Our weekend of yoga and art focused and honored our Chakra’s.   We located each Chakra, talk about each element, matra, meta physical and symbol for each Chakra.

Doing the Yoga while honoring our Chakra’s

Yoga

Each day we formed a circle where we shared stories and meditated.  I loved hearing others tell their stories, recalling and talking about their youth, showing photos that captured their essences as a child.   We shared what is sacred  for us today and what excited us as a child.  For me, tapping into that happiness as a little girl still holds true today.  I love that I recognized that inner child in me and want to honor her every day!

Our leaders were personable, knowledgeable, fun and free spirits, just what the retreat ordered up!  I felt like I knew Elle and Dar all my life, though it was the first time we met.  Elle Allen, M.A., is a yoga instructor, poet, music teacher, women’s circle facilitator, and a student of shamanic practices and new-thought Christianity.  Dar Brooks, my twin from another life, is an award winning artist who teaches adult and children’s classes world-wide. She is a Master Hypnotherapist, NLP practitioner, spiritual teacher, certified Healing Touch Practitioner and retreat facilitator.   I smile each time I think of them, along with the other women I shared the weekend retreat with.
