To Inspire, Transform & Heal

Linda Wiggen Kraft
Creativity for the Soul

Blog

Welcome to my blog. My work and life are my play and passion. It is a crazy quilt of creativity for the soul that is meant to inspire, transform and heal through gardens, art and work with the sacred. I work and play in gardens, garden design, garden writing, mandala art, art journaling, photography, classes and workshops, pottery, meditation, meditation teaching, sustainability and sacred space. I share my life with my husband, sons, daughters-in-law, friends, clients and students.

Mandala Flow

I get chills when I see or play with watercolors that allow the flow of color and water to create beautiful unexpected patterns and movement. I especially get that surge of electricity when the watercolors are used in mandala making.

“Becoming” Bundles & Blessings

Instead of 2019 New Year’s resolutions, intentions or goals, this is the year of “becomings”. “Becoming” is not a noun like goal, intention or resolution. It is a life force that gives birth to something new. It is motion and creation that is always growing. It is the active part of “to be”.  “Becoming” lives inside of us and calls to our highest self. “Becoming” is not static, but dynamic and full of life both within us and as part of all creation. “Becoming” is flow, change, growing to fulfillment. “Becoming” at its highest is bathed in fierce heart energy, the flow of life, conviction, light, truth and courage.

Winter Solstice Mandalas – Light & Dark Nourishment

Winter Solstice, when winter begins, is a time to honor both darkness and light. Winter is womb time, a quiet time of gathering energy within. It is a time of gestation of dreams, hopes and becomings.  It is the in-breath needed for the co-creative out-breath expression of life.

The Joy & Depth of Teaching – Art & Soul Retreat

Some of my  most joyful and deepest creativity has been teaching at the Art & Soul Retreat*at Kanuga in North Carolina. It is a feeling of stepping into a stream so strong and deep that it takes me to a place where my soul feels at home, really at home.
