Spectrum.art.life.love.nurture.explore.grow~an amazing new offering begins NOW ♥

 

Several very profound things happened to me the weekend before last at Call of the Wild Soul in beautiful Petaluma, California.

 

love this pic from Petaluma taken by the gorgeous Erin Faith Allen


One of them was that I became aware on a very deep level
 of the truth of something that has been nudging at my awareness these past few months, 
something that began as a whisper, 
a vague unspoken feeling but has now offered itself as truth.

The truth is that each time I teach I understand more deeply that creativity at its core is connection to source and that as we allow ourselves to unfold creatively EVERYTHING in our lives becomes more connected, flows with more ease, embraces LOVE with more authenticity.

I have been feeling the power of a WAVE of creativity washing over the planet~ 

a revolution of the best kind ♥


and then,
 while I contemplated all of this in such a spectacular, spirit filled setting,
 an email arrived, 
from the divine Hali Karla, inviting me to be a part of an online workshop

 absolutely, totally in alignment with all I have been feeling!!


Don't you just love that?




A visual Journaling Experience celebrating your Art~Body~Nature!

 I am soooooo excited to be joining more than 30 holistic-minded artists, healers and visionaries that have come together to offer a 10 month online workshop


in which you will create a visual field guide devoted to awakening, exploring, deepening and celebrating the innate wisdom within YOU. 


Whether you are just beginning a visual or art journal practice, or looking to enhance & spark a seasoned one,

This journey is about connecting with BODY as guide and ally, 
ART as intuitive, expressive oracle,
and NATURE as provider of love. lesson, abundance and belonging.

One more very important thing.......:)

Oh, to "Release", to let it all go, to be unburdened by the past and walk with light step and open heart into the future..... that sounds magical. :-) x

I wish to activate all that my Soul holds for me...all the Love and creativeness that is me..to open to all that I am....thanks for the chance to embrace this class...Lorraine Mckew...

Lauren said...

Pulse! I feel like I have JUST been getting a pulse on where I am as an artist *right now*, not 3 or 4 years ago -- and my style has changed drastically. I'm getting used to it, feeling it out, and experimenting.

kaye62 said...

It would be a good idea to kick my soul into gear for 2014.

I love release - although many sound interesting. Thanks for the opportunity.

Dear Tracy, my heart actually leaped in my chest when I read about this amazing workshop this morning. Thank you so much for offering this!

just jody said...

What a wonderful opportunity to be INSPIREd. Awesomeness!

Sinderella Studio Designs said...

I seem to be in the never ending search for my personal missing link. This past year has taken me away from my spirit to paint. I must plan work time off a year in advance so just missed you between Albuquerque & Austin. I feel like I need that personal experience but lifes schedule of events doesn't seem to have that opportunity anytime soon. This, at first I thought isn't teaching me art how too but reading threw the teachers THIS seems like where I really need to start. within me first!

Anonymous said...

I feel at least three of the ten really speaking to me; but, ACTIVATE is the one! My heart, soul, mind and spirit has been constrained for so long it begs to feel the explosion of creativity.

Kirsten Reed said...

Wow...this is like nothing I've ever come across. NOURISH speaks to me as being the one area I most need to explore. Thank yiu for the lovely chance to win a spot!

Shona Hutchings said...

Flow - Love it when I'm in the flow - connecting with source, trusting and surrendering. This journeying, creative group of teachers, weaving a tapestry of yumminess sounds fabulous - Bring it on!!

Nina Collosi said...

Connection to source. I too believe and feel that creativity is a connection to source. Something that I've been working on (connecting to source) for a while now. After leaving my corporate job in 2012 I've been exploring this more and my creativity. Also a big one for me is living authentically and living life with more ease, flow and LOVE.

betty wisse said...

#8 Innervate, I'm suffering from Fibromyalgia and need a hip replacement soon. I'm just beginning my journey into the art world and would like to add some spirituality to my work.

Sherry Smyth said...

Looks like an amazing course...one that fills the soul to the brim and then some!

Consu Tolosa said...

Wow! This sounds amazing, and I would love to ACTIVATE the yearnings of my soul during the upcoming year in the company of such a heart-centered group!! Thanks for the chance to win a spot, Tracy. xx

kelli may-krenz said...

I have been feeling a calling to get my positive self into the universe through my graphics and art. This speaks to me directly has my heart saying THIS IS IT KELLI. I am also a tad short in the funds department right now so this feels like a soulful life changer for me. I am most inspired and crazy pants happy to read about this life changing walk with such beautiful talents. WOW WOW WOW. Adoring <3

Anonymous said...

Inspire. In trying to hear my voice I hold my breath which only allows me to hear the pounding of my heart. I'll get there, I know I will, but think the challenging explosive process of this journey might be eased a bit with guidance from this amazing circle of women I keep reading about.

Kelly Harrah said...

opening ~ one of my many goals is to open enough to accept it's okay to want thing for myself... thank you for the opportunity! love your work~

Sharmon Davidson said...

Oh, this sounds so exciting; I would love to win! Thanks for the opportunity! I'm having a give-away on my blog as well, if anyone's interested.

Susie K said...

My art journal has been collecting dust, lately. This course sounds like it can give me that creative nudge to get back to working in it! Your work is beautiful, Tracy. What a treat it would be to win a spot in the workshop you are involved in. :)

Grace said...

"Nourish" sounds like it fits right in with what I love about life.

Congratulations Tracy on being invited. You are such a great teacher!

Noopur said...

"Desire" ....no matter what I may try .. My subconscious mind always pulls me back to it :) ...
Looks like its time ... :) ...
I would love to join , art journaling has been a struggle
For me , but I want to develop a serious habit !
Tracy you had been my favorite for many reasons , :) ..and I have many reasons to be grateful to you .
A new one just added , thanks for introducing me to this workshop .. Learning from so many artists through one workshop is just wow !!!

Kristina W said...

Release is the one that speaks to me most - there's a lot on my plate that needs to be cleansed and released. Thank you Tracy, for the opportunity.

Eydie said...

Tracy,

I felt my soul pulsate as I read the description and of Spectrum. I felt my SELF come alive. I am glowing with the prospect of being gifted this course.
Much Love and light
Eydie

Stephanie said...

"Pulse" is what resonated most with me from the descriptions. I would love the opportunity to win a spot in this class. Thank you!

CreativSpirit said...

I would dearly love to be a part of this course, it sounds wonderful and just where I'm at right now. Thanks for the chance to win. Although all of the topics sound wonderful, "Release" definitely speaks to me and my life right now.

arttage said...

Hi Tracey!! Innervate- although several of these terms would also pertain to me... right now for today this one does the most. Stress and nervousness, I always have that especially around other people outside of family. Come to think of it even inside my family, just deal with that differently.I also have pain and am tired much of the time these days so I try to sleep a lot and relax to make myself feel better. A lover of people and community forcing myself to relate always feeling better when I do!
I think flow is good for me too because I am a flowy person in many ways, like how easily art oozes out of me, yet I als0o get blockages. I even have a block on my heart! I usually trust people until they show me otherwise, and I desperately need community, I think we all do!!! and Would love to win a spot, Sanna

sallylentz said...

Hi, Tracy! What a cool online course. I would love to participate. The "Inspire" and "Release" segments are especially relevant to me at this time. Hope you are well and enjoying being back home again.

Diva Kreszl said...

Tracy I love how 'Spirit" moves mountains to bring our most sacred desires to fruition. I know that you are well suited to this endeavor, it sounds amazing!!!

Christine said...

Inspire...I love inspiration and I hope I can be inspiring too..and this class looks like it's full of wonderful inspiration...I would love a place!

mmpm88 said...

Nourish & Release. I need something like this course. No, I need this course. Lol. It's just what my mind, body and soul need.

Alison Mackay said...

They all speak to me, but "opening" jumped out at me straight away! I would love to win a spot on this course as I probably can't afford it otherwise, having lost my job! Would love to be inspired by all these teachers, including and especially you Tracy!
alison.mackay@gmail.com

Cynthia Marie Pettigrew said...

I was recently laid off from my job and while I am looking for work I am also looking for my dream! This would be an exciting way to go for it! I am telling the universe that I would love this opportunity!

Desire and Nourish sounds intriguing!

anab said...

ACTIVATE:strength, foundation, fear,stretch...relax - resonated with me; both in my personal life(that seeks to live, love, communicate and express creatively so much more/everyday) and that of the beautiful country where i live, Philippines (having been in the most difficult trial yet as a nation that not only moved the whole country but the whole world).

Francie said...

Ohhh sounds divine. I'd love to be part of this!

Kathy, PaperPumpkin said...

Oh! After my meditation I discovered this in my inbox! I feel Pulse...inner guide and reflection, and Trust. My Word for this year is Trust and I journaled today how it has been life changing for me! What a beautiful course this is, thank you so much!

Melita Rafanelli said...

What a wonderful class! I would love to be a part of it .

Unknown said...

Hi Tracy
What a fabulous opportunity for you and us. I love when the stars line up and love that you share your story. Just started looking at your work and hope to do a workshop with you next time you are in the USA. I am in Vancouver Canada. The thing that speaks to me the most is PULSE love heart and all that good stuff. Without it we are lost. I do hope our paths cross and in the meantime would love this online course. Creativity Rocks.

Kelly Z. said...

Oh my how does one choose what speaks most from Opening to Closing...each one has a special place in my space and heart...what a delightful giveaway chance! Thank you!

Anonymous said...

I think activate is what is speaking to me right now. I hate change and have applied for a years leave from my current job and applied for another for a year and have gotten that job. Am so excited, am fearful, am mediating on releasing fears and finding my strength and foundation. I feel at the moment that I am really just going with the flow of life and I am being carried along ... Lisa Crail

Poetryqn said...

Wow, what a fabulous playground of possibilities! As I read over the list this morning the word that leapt out at me was FLOW. 2013 has been a year of massive changes for me and my family - some sought and some unwanted, but all have brought gifts into my life. The trick is seeing them. For me, FLOW is about being fully conscious in the moment. I would love to participate in SPECTRUM and winning the scholarship would help enormously. Please, Universe, I embrace this gift!

angela banks said...

Flow, being very independent for most of my life I really have been drawn to being part of a community. This has been my renaissance. :)

Lura said...

i think i so need this, my life is stuck.i dont know which way to turn, i feel it is coming to the end of my journey here on earth and i want to make the most of what is left of it. and to be able to make the transition. i want to learn. i want to be. thank you tracy, sweet, loving tracy, i always feel your warmth and kindness with me from your hugs i get once a year. i appreciate you doing this giveaway, if i am meant to have it then i will win it cause i dont have the money for it. we will see what the earth has in store for me. xoxo

denise stensland said...

Donna walsh said...

This looks so inviting, exciting and inspiring. I hope I will be able to join in. "Inspire" and "Nourish" sound so very nice to me at this moment.

Isabelle said...

Oh Tracy, I am so happy that Hali had the courage and generosity to offer this workshop - and what an amazing line up of teachers, including you!!!, are joining her!

Marie Danti said...

Would love to break through some life long blocks with Flow.
Sounds like an inspiring workshop.

Michelle Grant said...

Would love to join in on this one too!!! Looks Amazing!!!!!!

Stacie said...

Activate and Enervate are speaking volumes to me right now. It is so fantastic to see every thing that is calling you and would be great to be a part of Spectrum!

Shelly Penko said...

This ALL sounds so good. I like the idea of connecting body and art. I've known for a while that is my weak link, that body connection. What a great line up of teachers, you are so going to rock this, Tracy! <3

Suzy Morris said...

I absolutely love this idea! What a great opportunity to connect with other like-minded woman, to be inspired and to manifest all my hopes, dreams in 2014 through the power of visual journaling! What an amazing way to start the new year!

Carla (Color Heals Me) said...

Love all the topics. I am especially drawn to Nourish and Flow but they all sound great! This is an exciting topic. I love it

Cynthea said...

Difficult to choose but Nourish and Flow speak to me, they all sound so amazing!

The description of the 'Activate' section definitely speaks to me right now. My guiding word right now is expansion, and it leads me to many intriguing ideas and moments of awareness.
Expansion and contraction, inhale and exhale; all natural flows but I hope to live increasingly expansively, open to possibility! plus to let go more with my creativity and art

Sandra Mosley said...

FLOW
Speaks to my soul in this precious moment.

Kim Hitzges said...

Inspire.....
One spot, so many women. If it is my time for such a class then I will be blessed with the seat. If not, well when the student is ready.....

sandi said...

I so am drawn to "Release". So often I hold onto things too long and they become 'baggage' for me. What a fabulous layout of gifts from all of you!

Francine Perri said...

Oh I would love to win one of your classes thanks for this opportunity

Patti said...

I would love to win this class so that I can reach my Soul Spot and discover the process of my journey.

Marta González Rossel said...

Hermoso! lo que siempre he querido y lo he estado anhelando. Gracias por aparecer :D que tengas un lindo dia!

Tammy Gervais said...

Flow strikes a cord with me, as I am learning to let go and just let things flow. 2 yrs ago I participated in an art show, I made things I thought people would like - nothing sold. The following months, I let go and just let what was in me flow out and it was whimsical and very colorful.. the next show I put those pieces in and sold 3. So now I create for the joy of it and if something sells, that is a bonus. I look forward to learning and growing more.

Cheryl F. said...

Nourish and Release seem to be calling me at this time. Tracy, thanks for a chance to win.

RELEASE from 2013. My year has been filled with to much grief x death this year. One partner going through Chemo and stem cell and an exhausting year. Time to Nourish myself, love myself more and paint and enjoy life more. Look forward to 2014 of creative fun. Leanne

Hi Tracy,
Thank you for sharing the link to this amazing group of artists who will be running an inspirational and life changing workshop! I can just imagine the amazing works or art and journals that will be created, when such talented minds are brought together to inspire, motivate and provoke inner discovery, personal growth, wisdom and appreciating the spiritual connections we share as artists... The lesson or word I have chosen is number 3. "Inspire" - This is because for too long I have denied my hidden creative soul...... This year I finally decided to embark on an artistic journey of self discovery - To create from the heart and soul .... learning to trust in the creative process... I believe if presented with the opportunity to join this amazing class, it would give me the opportunity to continue my journey as a emerging artist with being inspired by other like minded artists and participate in universal exchange of ideas and creative discourse . I believe this workshop would help to foster my confidence in believing in my artistic ability and provide me with the means to delve deeper into my creative soul to continue this journey of self discovery... By the end of the course I would love to be able to share this passion I have for art in a universal way - to share these skills with others - so they too share in the love and artistic passion of finding your inner self and the universal connections to others we have when we create art.


Kind regards....

Kathleen said...

I love the idea that it's online... I think that #8, Innervate, fits my needs... I definitely NEED energy, and the rest of that list. I actually could use #9, too... looks like 1 - 11 is what I need. LOL! What a wonderful opportunity! Thanks!

verdigrisrose said...

Hi Tracy,
I would so love to join this march of illustrious spiritually connected women towards health, wellbeing, and deeper connection to their True....And, it will be something I know I can do, as it's online!!!...so much easier for me with my health issues, to be in my own time & space, and still be connected...
Hope all is well with you, and that your journey is filling your heart each day in the way you want, need and desire...x....julia

Raquel Kane said...

Hi Tracy,

Pulse : resonates strongly with me. I feel that if you approach life from a heart space, standing grounded in trust that you are a child of Source life will unfold with unimaginable joy, beauty and love. I am looking to find that deep, sustaining rhythm to dance me home again.

So many lovelies teaching so much loveliness. 'Twould be so wonderful to be able to partake of this nourishment ~

I am scared of the English language... Not to read, but to write. It feels (even harder than usual) to communicate. I rather communicate with colours or my body, than in words ;)
But I will be brave and think I HAVE to take this course.

Accually, right now, "opening" speaks most to me. I´m stucked and have fear. Need a push and just "jump". Open up, breath and let go...! <3
Love from Amandeep Sweden amandeep@hotmail.se

Tina Van Netten said...

Joanne said...

I am inspired by the topic of flow - Trust, Community, Messenger, Fluidity, Movement, Relief and blockages.... I feel as creative artists we need to come together as a community to facilitate spiritual growth and movement - These workshops act as a messenger to inspire and build up our trust of the creative process. That by participating in these workshops they will help to overcome creative blockages that we may face as artists...

Susie K said...

I have been trying for two years of personal work with a life coach to help me find myself again. I've turned back to my art but have struggled to find the connection of my art, how to express "me", live more mindful and be happy. how to quiet the negative voices and make time for me to learn it's ok to take care of myself. I am happiest in my studio. Now i need to find the discipline to make time to pull it all together.

Cindy Silverstein said...

At this time in my life I need to ACTIVATE, grow in STRENGTH, DANCE, sing, paint, move, play, celebrate, laugh, and dive into an ocean of love.
