Full Buck Moon Dream Board

Considering we just began a new lunar cycle, I figured I’d better post my dream board from the previous one. Last month I worked with the Full Buck Moon, which asks the question: What are your most powerful dreams? In answering this question, a whole new form came into being. Since last August, I have been creating 2 dream boards every month using manila folders as my substrate. This started to feel a bit thin, unfocused and frankly, boring. I knew I wanted to play with size and focus my intentions into a single collage. I found an old 12×12 scrapbook on my shelf that had brown kraft paper pages – I’m a sucker for brown kraft paper – and I love what emerged. It feels primal, ancient and wild. I only used 4 images and 2 words total, but there is an evocative richness that makes me want to stare at it for hours.

I will, however, admit that I have not stared at this collage for hours. Posting it now makes me look at it for probably the first time since I created it a month ago. Such is the state of my spiritual practice these days, and by extension my blog. I haven’t wanted to post or answer comments or have much to do with this space lately. This summer has been hot and fraught and full of change – both in the microcosm and the macrocosm. Much turmoil, little to show for it . . . much like the world at large, yes? I know my spiritual practice (and my blog) anchors me and guides me through these times, and yet, I neglect it exactly when I need it most.

And here’s the kicker: Next week finds me teaching a workshop on creative spiritual practice at Taproot. Oh the irony! The one speck of grace feels like simply allowing myself to assume the posture of teaching what I most need to learn. At least, that’s what I’m telling myself. I truly hope you are well, enjoying summer (or winter for you Cathy!!) and find yourself surrounded by what you need most. xoS

  1. Thank you, Sheila. Yes I can relate to teaching what you most need to learn! Or that I need to give to myself that which I give to others – acceptance, kindness, heck just give myself a break!
