We formed a circle with our mandala stones - the final workshop in our 3-day Syrendell Winter Retreat. Each river rock represented an individual - an artist, a scientist, a photographer, an innkeeper, a coordinator, a brewmaster. Each rock a constellation. Each constellation one universe.
We are all unified by the human desire to be creative. Being creative is honoring earth's bounty, accepting the gifts of the elements, using our own hands. Creating is in our nature, and most certainly comes from a wellspring of loving intent. It connects us, nourishes and heals us, completes us.
Now if only we can get our world leaders to all be together to braid yarn, paint stones, sand wood, and go wine tasting in Calistoga, CA...!
