Howdey there! Sheesh, it's been awhile since I've posted. Sorry about that, I don't like to leave that many days go by without an update. But I have good reason: I've been busy like a squirrel :) I was working on a commissioned project (will post on that soon) and am currently brain-storming together with a designer from Europe on a second 1-day scrapbooking/mixed media event that we will put together for after the summer holidays...and getting things going in my head with regards to my studio activites for the fall...Lots of groovy things I want to do in there!!
...And trying to finish up pages for a Circle Journal project that I've been a part of for a whole year!! (I haven't forgotten about you, G-pals!!)
Also, I am really excited because finally finally I will be hosting the first Intensive Workshop in "The Work" (Byron Katie) to be held in the Barcelona area!! This coming weekend, Brianda Domecq, Certified Facilitator of The Work, is coming to Barcelona from Madrid (where she has been facilitating groups with The Work since 2003) to run the 2-day workshop here. I am so looking forward to sharing The Work with people here in the area. I attended the Intensive Workshop with Brianda in Madrid last year and it was--and it sounds cliché to say it, but it's true--a life changing experience. Or at least some major paradigms of mine shifted. Or even dissolved all together. It was a very freeing experience.
The Work is a very powerful tool. I think of it as my keel, which steers my boat back on course whenever something/one/a situation provokes responses in me and I lose my sense of peace...calm...happiness...and shift into negative self-talk, into my less-than-noble behaviours, into being a victim...all that juicy stuff!! ;)
Anyhoo, I'm thrilled about this workshop this weekend, and I hope it will be the first of more to come.
If you haven't heard of Byron Katie or The Work,
here are some clips of Katie, helping others to do The Work :)
This one is great!
