Glimpse Deeper Levels of Order and Relatedness

Hi Everyone, Emilie Conrad came to me in a dream before Thanksgiving; we were teaching together. At the end of the dream there was so much that I wanted to remember from our workshop and so much I wanted to share with her. All that I saw was three infinity signs one above and two below and they were burning, as if to burn them in my memory. When I awakened, I didn't remember anything from the workshop we were teaching except her presence and the infinity signs. Frustrated, I let go of the dream and became lucid (after Arnold Mindell's teachings). Laying in bed and moving my body, I allowed the looping infinity shape to inform my movement. It felt very satisfying and nourishing. Shortly later

Cultivating Cheerfulness

Greetings Friend! I heard recently that the Dali Lama said the most important quality to cultivate is cheerfulness. How interesting! For many years, my friend and mentor, Susan Harper, has modeled taking on a quality for a year at a time. So "cheerfulness" is becoming my friend this year. I'm noticing the quality of my moments improving dramatically! Is their an aspect you are taking on this year? I would love to hear about how that is going for you. I'm noticing that focusing on cheerfulness means I am smiling a lot more and doing things that are fun, like group play/water exercise. My husbands' daughter and her family are living with us, while they transition back to San Antonio, so I a

Daily Practice

In my Quaker Meeting we tell those in need we will "hold them in the Light." This has become an important component of my daily practice. In my "Inquiry into the Imaginal," I start with a continuum dive that engages the imaginal. Entering open attention, I "clock in" to my job in the imaginal realm. Often I will see a printer shoot out a paper with what I am being ask to address in the session. In one session, I saw a cow farting methane and since I had been painting and communicating with the micro-organisms that clean up pollution and oil spills, (see painting to the right) I made contact and engaged their cooperation. An imaginary micro-organism emerged that was alive in the cows' stomach

The Essence of Space is Conductivity

Prelim2- A Study for “The Essence of Space is Conductivity” 17 x 24 Mixed Media on Paper 2010 $300 www.thecosmicbody.com/healingart We recently added a gallery of preliminary drawings and paintings to my website from my three year study called "Resonance: A study of Tensegrity in our connective tissue." Many of the original textiles were collected by Emilie Conrad and used in her retreats and workshops, to help hold the space for the fluid intelligence. Unfortunately, the finished work disappeared when she died, so this might be all that remains. These pieces can be rolled up so they ship easily.

Staying Well & New DreamTech

Remember if someone is sick near you visualize your immune response, maybe as one connected troop of soldiers and they all have linked arms. If you feel symptoms and think you are coming down with an illness, you can use the "Stove App" and ask your body to put it on a back burner and turn it down so low you don't have any symptoms. It runs its course and you have about 1/100th of the symptoms. It also gives your head something to do besides worry. Lots of new DreamTech are arriving with my exploration into the imaginal. One of my favorite lately is the BUOY. It came in during Gael Rosewoods' dive during the recent Wellsprings of Inspiration training in Austin. The Buoy App is an anchor floa

Isamu Taniguchi

Back during my Saturn return of 1986, I worked with Isamu Taniguchi (b.1897-1994). Tomorrow, December 4th is his birthday. During our time together we shared a moment where he saw the essence of me. He said, "Suzanne, you know the garden." Then he removed his hat and bowed to me, all the way to the earth. At that moment I was filled with light energy coming up through my feet and sprouting out of the top of my head. It was transformational and set me on the artist path. These past few months I have had the opportunity to bow to others whom I am mentoring, and the completion of that cycle feels very satisfying. I am in such a slowed down mode. We have our grandchildren and my beloveds oldest

Warrior Cloth Peace Council Living Water Spirit Cloth 48" X 16 ' Private Collection As a resonant organism made mostly of water we create opportunities for our fluid system to be reset from wilderness. The light of stars forming distant galaxies seems to permeate our fluid bodies, clarifying for each of us the question of- "Why am I here?" In the realm of DreamTech this might look like an antenna unfurling through the tree beings. Try it if you need clarity of vision/purpose. The Tree Spirits holding us had a lot to teach as we worked. One transmission came through

West Texas Campout- Experiment

Guided by the Imaginal, and holding the desire to listen deeply to Spirit, I was called to west Texas, to work in collaboration with my friend Imelda Garcia (from Alpine and El Paso) and my colleague Amber Grey from Santa Fe. We started the year under the clear starry skies with a Continuum Campout called "Stars and Water, Water and Stars." We met along the Camino Real at Balmorhea State Park almost half way between where each of us lives. The idea was to find a new way to be together and include nature and invite students, colleagues and friends to come together and experiment in creating a satisfying experience, while letting go of the workshop/retreat structure. We created a new collabora

Out With The Old

Greetings Friends, Colleagues and Beloveds! Letting go of 2015 was easy with help from the work of some amazing women, my body healed many problems that had been a nuisance between 6 and 25 years. I learned of N.A.E.T. which stands for Naumbudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. Invented by a woman chiropractor, she developed a system that combines acupuncture with 25 hours of avoidance that eliminates allergies. I am no longer allergic to monosodium glutamate, so no more migraines. Moving on, I found the FODMAP diet out of Australia, which stands for: "Fermentable The process through which gut bacteria degrade undigested carbohydrate to produce gases (hydrogen, methane and carbon diox

Later, when I pulled this cloth from the dye bath and opened it, all I could do was dance and move. It's saying "clear out your studio and make room for what is coming!" I don't know what that will be, but I'm starting an original art sale tomorrow and continuing every First Thursday 6-9 PM until I have no inventory left. Paintings, art cloth everything needs to find a home. (Also, I want to "Womanifest" an agent/gallery to represent me so that I can focus on the work, so if you know of anyone that would be a good match for my work, please let me know). Then I'm going to move out the furniture and create a clear space to move and work. Who knows, maybe I will become a performance artist, wit

“Cherishing Community Vision” Art Quilt 86” X 45” Cotton/ Handmade cloth * NFS (Prints Available) Inspired by a vision I had during a dive during the January 2014 Continuum teacher meeting, this piece depicts the essence of that experience. In the vision, I was part of the herd crossing a large deep river, some crossed and as the column got closer to the center of the river it turned and began moving with the current downstream. I looked around and saw many of my beloveds, who were riding great steeds like elephants, horses, dragons, some were dolphins and whales and some flew overhead. There was the sense that everyone was empowered and we were in the flow of life. I know at least t

Lighten Up.

While visiting our farm a few weeks ago, I was headed to my friends to help her unload a truck load of junk, when we saw the mail carrier delivering some packages to the front door. He had backed the mail truck up to the front porch, over the walkway and the grass. My friend and I sat beside the road amazed, we couldn't believe his audacity. We couldn't wait to give him a piece of our mind, collectively! Then we noticed how blissfully, ignorantly happy he was. Neither of us could speak. In that moment I felt all my anger dissolve and I realized how he is living in his own reality and how amazing it is that we have the freedom to do this. So we waved and that was the end of it. I keep thinkin

Today's Word

Life is Short, enjoy the moment Recently, a little friend and I went to the creek to collect some Living Water for a Black Walnut dye bath. We sang to the water spirits and had so much joy and freedom in the beauty of the day! It takes but a moment to perspective shift and see/feel/experience the world from the "eyes" of a cloud, rock, cicada or tree.
