2013 Workshops Brochure Release

Greetings, and Voila!

A new season of workshops is coming right up, and the catalog is ready.
I have enjoyed the meditative process of deciding what might be fun to offer this year, while at the same time being most likely to be of real and lasting benefit to you.
All of the sessions will be very small groups, so be sure to let me know soon if you'd like to save a spot in any of this seasons workshops!

Also, there are still a few spots left for the grand Spain adventure in October as well!
If you're feeling creatively curious, jump on in. These courses are for you - to nourish your creativity, in a totally dedicated way, in a beautiful place, and in the synergy created in good company.

I hope you are all loving the beautiful beginnings of May, wherever you are.

For the Love of Dandelions

Okay, so there's Paris...and stars, and big oak trees and 30lb salmon. Amazing.
And things that need our attention in a big way - like our families, farming, proposed pipelines. All the while, at our feet every day, there are volunteer ambassadors of Awesome to show us how it's done.

Dandelions are like calling cards scattered by the sun.
Wherever you live, work, walk, park or play, I bet you can find one-or more likely, many! They are so common, in fact, that they are often overlooked, even battled as "weeds". 

I think they're phenomenal. Not only are they hardy edibles, they always catch my eye for their beautiful design.  Their ultra vivacious yellow can barely contain itself in the delicate petals that are laid out in perfect symmetry. 
And this is all before they become little wish factories. Way to bring it dandelions!

I like to pick one and bring it in to look at it throughout the whole week. The single dandelion, in it's modest glory, reminds us that it has as much to be and give as any bouquet, or zebra, or you, or me.

On the infinite list of scenic wonders in this world, I would seriously put dandelions right up there with Paris, France.  

See, there's my muse for this post!
