Imagining Beauty: Traveling the Path of the Heart

Imagination can raise us up or tear us down. It is something we all have and use every day. When we anticipate a next step we are imagining what an outcome may be. When we resist taking an action we may be imagining that the future will look like the past. The challenge is to imagine the higher turn rather than being held back by imagining the worst as we take each step on the winding path of life. THAT is the greatest magic!


In 2021 I created a 14' x 14' hand painted and stitched portable canvas labyrinth. The intention was to create something that would serve as a tool to bridge generations, weave inter-tradition communications, and support community building.


I didn't realize how deeply the creative process would take me into my inner multi-generational work. From the spark of inspiration to the final steps of completion and consecration I gained clarity into my vision of, and devotion to the path of Beauty.


This video steps the viewer through the process from the spark of inspiration to completion and consecration, revealing the call to Beauty.


The Labyrinth of the Heart is now in service. Please let us know if you would like us to visit your location for a walk or ceremony. Or, if you would like a personal meditation video created for your own sacred work.
