Transforming Our World Through The Arts

Sharing is Gooood!

I attended my first Energy Share today at Debra Jones’ “Riverside” Natural Healing Centre in Hornings Mills, Ontario. For those who don’t know what an Energy Share is, it is where people who have different healing techniques (or anything that spread positive vibes really) get together and share skills and experiences with one another. It is a great way to get to know people with common interests, practice your skills, and RECEIVE energy as well. To top it all off, we all bring delicious food and we have a pot luck. (Although I had to leave early THIS TIME, so I missed out on the yummies). Oh yeah, AND this one just happens to take place in an absolutely gorgeous setting (I almost cried at the scenery on my drive there).

It was such a gift and an honour to not only have the opportunity to share my passion for Expressive Arts with others, but to learn about the wonderful things that other people are doing to make the world a better place as well. Such a wonderful way to start my day. I leave you with a few inspiring pictures..and many blessings.

Everyone Has A Story: The Healing Power of The Arts

Many many years ago, when someone who was feeling unhappy, unfulfilled, or ‘ill’ went to see a Shaman, the first three questions the Shaman asked were: “When did you stop dancing? When did you stop singing? When did you stop telling stories?”

These three art forms: Dancing, singing and story telling are but a few of the many healthy, creative ways humans have discovered to free the spirit and heal the soul (in other words: Relax and Unwind!!)

Bottom line:  Everybody has a story to tell. And the arts (whether it be visual, music, written or dramatic) help people to share their stories sometimes without even speaking a word! But the process of engaging in the arts helps us to RELEASE..and that feels GOOD!!

I encourage each and every one of you to somehow engage in something that lets you express yourself.  You will see positive results, I guarantee!

A quote from Happy Feet 2: “Why am I dancing?  It puts the HAPPY  in me!!”
