with Cynthia and Ruth Showalter
3rd Mondays 2:30 to 4:15 pm pacific.
Gather monthly to play with themes and initiations from the Art of Ensoulment. Anyone can participate.
Cynthia will center the group in each month’s initiation. After a time of movement, dancing hand and writing prompts, participants will briefly share the media that they are drawn to use. When support is needed, Ruth will offer a form.
To end we will share, notice, and bless the offerings.
Ruth is an enthusiastic follower of the Hidden Monastery. Her practice and friendship as an artist, ESL educator, co-organizer of the Global SIS community and InterPlay Life Practice Program leader is a delight. The Dancing Hand dance chapel each Wednesday is a brilliant evolution of her own devotion to art, dance, and ensoulment.
Cost:40/month, 40 dollars off if you pay for the year. 25/month for low income and ensoulment course participants.
We write a haiku, pencil a sketch, a dream, a sensation.
We shake and stretch and breathe and are
Allowing this to be our ebbs and flows,
Tender nurturance and uplifting confidence.
Building on the edge of being.
Sustained without stops.
Feeling the push and pull, the desire to
Get lost in it,
Shove it away.
Being alive in what I thought were empty gaps.
Kay Rhode, Art of Ensoulment participant.
