I'm in the home stretch of Of the Heart, and loving watching what the participants are creating, and loving the twists and turns that my own book is making. Just love how well made plans can evolve into something new, unexpected and special when you stay open to the whispers while you work. Once the last week is over I will be offering the class as a self-paced, instant access to all the lessons so if you missed out on the first run you can still play along (and I have a few more bonus lessons to add through the year).

Meanwhile the snow is falling here, and the muses are calling me to curl up and go inward for awhile, to dig deep around the recesses of my imagination, churning it all up ready for a rebirth of creativity in Spring- Happy Solstice- Go Deep, Stay Light.

And I'm guest blogging over at Amulet today with thoughts on Winter and Summer Solstice and moving between the light.

Summer Solstice

A sneak peek at my summer solstice page I've been shooting today- making a journaling video: Summer Solstice Journal Ritual which I will be sharing with you all next year just in time for your Northern Hemisphere Summer Solstice in the new year. 
In the mean time I am planning to do another video for the new year which will be a "Word of the Year" Journaling Ritual. If you would like to join me, pop back in at the beginning of 2013, with a word you would like to embody for the year, a journal (or card or something to work on) and a handful of art supplies of your choice.

Wishing you all a GLORIOUS solstice, whether it be a summer or winter one. I love knowing that my Northern Hemisphere tribe is holding me in balance, moving towards the light as we in the South begin to move away.

Bisous, Gxx
