“I honor my compassionate, Intuitive nature, my imagination, & my fluidity”

On September 6th, I will be introducing the Full Moon Meditation with a leading Meditation as well as appetizers that will connect with the energy of the Full Moon. This event will honor the energy of the Pisces Full Moon at my studio at Olly Olly.

These meditations have been created to create an open space where we can collectively center our energy and connect and listen to the voice within, so that we have optimal creative energy in every aspect of our lives.

For the Meditation, I will be talking specifically about how the Pisces Moon affects ourselves universally and personally. These tools will guide us into remaining focused on connecting with our intuitive development and continue to allow us to flow on the river of our own personal rainbow beam.

I am suggesting a donation of $5.00 for this workshop and group only so that it can be contributed to the food. ♥

Meditation on the Full Moon allows us to honor the voice that is within and understand our deeper connection with our emotions and our one universal human soul. Sometimes our souls can get muddled up with everyday life, but if we sit still with one another we can create a space of vast and limitless energy that can connect us to our cosmogony within. I will be holding a Meditation based on the horoscope of the Full Moon every month at my studio at Olly Olly in Old Town, Fairfax.

Please join us and feel free to bring along creative projects, journals, or anything that you might want to share or hold tight to you while you connect closer to your true nature.

Artist opportunities / Parks & Points Fall Essay Contest-11/1/17 deadline
« Last post by Amy on August 04, 2017, 09:07:59 PM »
From the Parks & Points website:

Our annual fall essay contest invites nonfiction submissions of up to 1,500 words in the form of autobiographical essay, reportage, profile, memoir, or narrative nonfiction. We seek essays that express a moment of significance — personal transformation, awakening, adventure, exploration, reward, accomplishment, revelation — that is inspired by or set within a park space or public land. Essays need not be about a U.S. national park—national forests, municipal and state parks, BLM lands, beaches, lakeshores, campgrounds, designated woodlands—and more—are great subjects. Also note that the writer does not need to be the subject of the essay. First, second and third place entries will be published on Parks and Points, as will the names of finalists. All entries are considered for publication.

Winners will be selected by contest judge Melissa Faliveno, Senior Editor of Poets & Writers magazine.

The submission deadline is November 1, 2017, 11:59 p.m. E.D.T. 


We have chosen prizes that we hope will support your impulse to travel:

1st Place  $250 Southwest Airlines gift card
2nd Place $150 Marriott gift card
3rd Place  $50 AirBnB gift card
Honorable Mention awardees will receive a copy of the book Crown Jewel Wilderness, The Making of North Cascades National Park, by Lauren Danner


Winners will be announced by November 30, 2017 and published on Parks and Points shortly thereafter.
Submissions of original and previously unpublished work should be no more than 1,500 words. Facebook and blog posts are considered “published” writing.
Upon publication all rights to written work will revert to the author. 
A $3 submission fee is required to enter. Multiple entries are permitted, but each requires a separate entry.
