It's just a bit cold here...



Outdoor guys want to move in.


Over at 14 Secrets for A Happy Artists Life we were discussing Gioia Chilton's Washington DC area conference;

Transformative Journeys: A Woman's Spirituality Conference

Saturday, February 10, 2007

9:30am-4:00pm

Mount Vernon Unitarian Church,

1909 Windmill Lane

Alexandria, Virginia



They are going to learn transformative methods to expand spirituality, increase health, celebrate woman's ways of knowing, become inspired, refreshed, and renewed through connection with the earth and the spirit. There will be information and activities concerning women's health, spiritual practices, and creative journeys will be offered as we join together, in the quest to bring soul-fullness to our daily lives.

Well, because not all of us will be able to attend and yet most of us found the topics very intriguing, we declared that Sat. Feb. 10 would be our very own 14 Secrets Transformation Day. Between now and then we will be collecting ways to expand our spiritual practices, increase our health, and celebrate our more feminine ways of knowing. We will be looking for ways to be more inspired and inspiring, refreshed and refreshing, renewing and renewed. As we find them we can share them with each other, then on Feb. 10 itself we could practice which ever ways we would like.

So I found these beautiful pictures of Poojas or Yagnas in India and I thought, of course, how lovely, combining ceremony and beautiful, colorful, sensual experience, and all so transitory and ephemeral. That's what I would create, a kind of celebration; filled with color, sound, smell, taste, and touch.

I also think I'll head on over to Jennifer Louden's website because she has a lot to say on retreat and transformation and comfort here.

If you would like to join us, feel free to declare Feb. 10 YOUR transformation day! Be our virtual buddies in this. See what you can find between now and then that would make your life more inspired and renewed. Share what you find with others.
