As always the creativity that flows from my monthly Mandala Circles astound me.

I have been preparing for next year’s Art & Soul Retreat at Kanuga in North Carolina. The official new name of the five-day gathering is “Art & Soul Retreat, Personal and Liturgical Creative Expression.”

I have to live what I will share with those who are part of the workshop. It is always a very deep experience finding the inspiration and guidance of what to share and teach in the workshop.

My Prayer on the back -Inspired by the journal writing


The workshop lives within me for months before the actual August dates. It lives within me already in the practice of journal writing that inspires prayers that are expressed in colors, abstract painting and calligraphy on the back of the journal writing.

These writings/prayers/paintings are creative expressions that expand traditional forms of personal and spiritual creativity.

There is more to what will be created at Art & Soul Retreat next year, these are some of the beginnings.



PS – A blog with the creations from the teachers (Linda & Kelly) at Kanuga in August 2018 will be coming shortly. Also a sharing of my visit to Minneapolis to see an exhibit (only place in the U.S.) of one of my favorite artists whose watercolors are the basis of her clothing designs, Gudrun Sjorden of Sweden.
