water meditation for creative flow

millbrook meadow, rockport ma

this meditation is designed to help with the flow of creativity in your life. maybe you feel you have lost touch with your dreams or you might be at a pivitol point of creative change. maybe you’ve simply hit a creative roadblock and need to infuse some new energy into a project or idea. whatever your situation, this gentle meditation is designed to reconnect you with the flow of your inner creativity. carve out at least a half an hour for yourself, and follow these steps:

* create a cozy meditation corner in a quiet area of your house. allow space for a comfortable seat, like a cushion or pillow, and a small table or altar for your meditation focus. place on the table items that connect you with water… like a sea scented candle, shells from the ocean, a photograph of a beautiful waterfall etc. also place a small bowl of water in your corner.

* begin your meditation by taking a nice relaxing shower. this part of the meditation is to awaken your senses to the actual physical feeling of flow. watch the water flow, and think about how it makes you feel. allow yourself to enjoy and relax into the sensation of flowing water all around you.

* next, drink a full glass of pure water. drink it slowly and mindfully and notice the water move through your body. think about how it feels, this internal flow of water.

* finally, sit comfortably in your meditation corner. place your hands in water mudra (tips of thumb and pinky finger touching) and relax your other fingers. focus again on the feeling of flow. as you sit, repeat an affirmation that inspires you to move towards your creative goals. one such affirmation could be “i trust myself to follow my creative dreams”.

* use this meditation whenever you feel you need reconnecting with your inner creative flow…it is always there ready to be reawakened!

The Cost of Selling Belonging

As someone who use to sell belonging and believed I was creating something universally magical , I now have fresh eyes on the harm that I once caused. I understand what can (and was) incredibly healing and impactful for some, was at the same time excluding, marginalizing and undervaluing others. First, to anyone who ever felt like they did not belong to anything I created because they were unable to afford it or felt like they did not have the social capitol to join -  I am sincerely sorry for not seeing you sooner .   To our entire creative community as a whole, I urge us all to think about belonging in new and equitable ways, and to do the work of dismantling these hierarchical structures that leave so many people out of the circle. We all deserve to have access to creativity and belonging, and I'd go so far as to say both are fundamental basic human needs and rights. Selling belonging can look like... Creating spaces and experiences that can only be accessed by buying in at one,

what's in a name?

It’s May 14, 2020 and I’m on a transnational call with a social worker and translator of the SOS Children’s Village offices in South Korea. It’s 7pm my time and 9am the next day in Korea, which adds to the surreal quality of the moment. It is my first long distance call following my inquiry with the organization documented to be my first place of entry into the system, found in my Korean records (the acquisition of which is an incredible story in and of itself). It was July 21, 1972 and I was 5 months old. It’s a small miracle the organization still exists, and an even bigger blessing that they took such time and care in searching for information and to talk it all through with me in person. I try not to cry as the call connects. What I learn is a lot of small details about that fateful evening which amount to nothing traceable, but still feel like huge missing pieces of my life. I was left near the entrance around 7pm under a small tree, wrapped in a blanket with only a name scribble
