Details

You're invited to Join us for creativity and a Red Thread Circle**

A Witness Tree is a solitary tree amid remote or wide open landscape. Usually a witness tree has been around for many hundreds of years and is the only witness to the history in that area. Everyone wants to be heard, to be witnessed, and to connect with others. Each of us has a cause, wish or dream, even when we're not sure what it is.

You're invited to create your own witness tree, on paper or in your art journal, to witness what you bring to the circle. What feeds your roots? What practices bring you present? What feed gratitude?

I'll provide Tea and snacks, a simple project & sisterhood. Bring your journal, and favorite simple craft supplies if you wish. The Meri Artist, just a block from the studio, offers a generous 10% discount for supplies for our circles and classes! (They are open till 6 PM)

**In Red Thread Circles, we come together and interweave the common threads of our stories. Circles are held around the world, and are for women who wish to gather with others as we share stories and a simple creative project which holds the energy of our visions for ourselves and the future.

From teachers to social workers, new moms to retirees, lawyers to elder support, doctors to therapists, victim advocates to bank tellers ... We all know this is a time for coming together. The Red Thread helps weave our circle, won't you join us?

($20-10 suggested, to cover room rental & supplies)

Red Thread topics include: Medicine Basket, Soul Vision cards (your own affirmation cards), Lotus Wisdom, Vision Plans, Biz-Muse, House of the Heart, Roots and Wings, Heal the Healer, Rose Beads, Prayer Flags, & Medicine Woman.

* Would you like to arrange a paint party for your friends with a Red Thread Twist? Paint With Pals parties feature a theme painting of your choice, and a fun way to celebrate friendships, milestone events, or just get together. These are a lovely alternative to the popular "cookie cutter" parties! We're happy to work with you to find the theme for your group.

* If you live in the Portland area, and are interested in hosting a Red Thread Circle, Paint with Pals party, or intentional Creativity playshop in your home or center, please let us know!!
