happy almost spring! i haven't been updating here as much in the past month or two because i've been focused more internally. winter is good for that. i also don't make much art in the winter, all of my creative energy manifests in the spring and summer. i have been up to some fun things, though. i am now offering custom gem essences and synergy 12 gem essences! there will be detailed information about them up soon, but for now if you're interested you can check out my facebook page or send me a message. in february i went on my first silent meditation retreat at the insight meditation society. my retreat was lead by lila kate wheeler and howard cohen. they were wise and hilarious and generally awesome. it was a really amazing experience, and i'll definitely be going back in the future. in the meantime, i'm really excited for spring! i've been thinking about soil and seeds and sunlight. we're almost there.
this is a gem essence i made for myself and a friend called golden blue. its focused on the solar plexus, heart, and throat chakra. its got a lot of crystals!
this is the synergy 12 essence!
tibetan tektite, tanzanite, herderite, moldavite, petalite, scolecite, natrolite, brookite, phenacite, satyaloka quartz, danburite, and azeztulite. i just recently finished collecting all 12 stones and i'm still working with their energies and learning what they're all about. i intend to write a separate post about them eventually.
this was a beautiful wooden quan yin statue at the insight meditation society. i loved walking past her every day. i felt quan yin's presence strongly the whole time i was there.
this is a tetrahedrite! its basically a bunch of metals that form together and make pretty patterns. it feels so strong and fierce, but also really gentle. i love this crystal.
may all beings be liberated.
