I wish you to
RECEIVE wonderful beauties from the world,
GIVE from your heart and
SHARE sweet moments with your loved ones (including yourself)…
and a Funky New Year!!!
I wish you to BE yourself in 2012 (everyone else is taken) !!!
Before going into 2012, I’d like to acknowledge 2011… What a year!!
What did you do? I know you did a lot! And me too, that’s why I’m taking a few minutes to think about all I’ve achieved… You’re welcome to do the same, and share it here!
So, what did I do in 2011 and would like to acknowledge?
I led a fantastic Vision Board workshop with Jayne Morris, led two “My Body: A Masterpiece” workshops and three parts of “Chakras’ Journey in your sketchbook” 10 weeks course, three “Revive the Artist in You” workshops, two “Learn how to draw a portrait in a day” and eleven taster sessions and gave twelve one-to-one sessions helping 53 people to acknowledge their creative power and reclaim their healing gifts.
I’ve painted 16 clown portraits, made 40 inner spiral drawings, 7 chakras drawings, three giant self-portrait pastels and oil, one “Woman Creation” oil painting, took on an etching class, wrote 39 poems,created and performed one live performance “The Conquest of the Hearts”, performed “One minute a day” five times, opened my studio for three days at the Euroart Open Studios, performed the werewolf in “Wolf: Let us prey” in Brompton Cemetery, designed the set of “The History of the Pomegranate” in Jacksons’ Lane theatre, performed the aerialist in “Once Bitten” in Glasgow, made one movie called “Danse-moi”, performed four poems by Simon David over two performances in Royal Court studio and the Bookshop.
I met Julia Cameron, attended her “The Artist’s way” creativity bootcamp, met Kath Burlinson, went to two of her “Authentic Artist” workshops, went to Paul Oertel’s “The Discipline of Freedom” 7 days retreat in Cornwall, met so talented people, trained as a Theta Healing practitioner for three days, attended 3 modules of the Helios School of Healing, passed the first year, practised this healing modality on 14 people. I gave around 374 hours of French lessons, have written and recorded 41 video tips to help people revive the artist in them, I attended the Landmark Forum for 3 days, danced for 5 days at the Biodanza summer festival, fell in love with Vincent again.
I started reading and still am reading A Return to Love by Marianne Williamson, Anam Cara by John O’Donohue, The Artist’s way by Julia Cameron, went to Sevilla, Paris, Glasgow, Brighton, Bath, Biarritz, La Grange de Bourgoult, Sydney, London, called my grand father over 40 times to tell him how much I love him, and my mum and my dad and my sister and Anna, and Vincent and Zazou and Julia and Yoana and ALbi. I can’t even remember everything I’m proud of. And five minutes ago, I was again thinking I’m not good enough.
And I’m not even thinking about who I have become, who I’ve loved and the wonders that naturally happened to me. Oh and I’ve been swimming at least 24 times and went to 4 Body Pump sessions lifting weights! Yahooooo!
What a wonderful exercise!
Thank you for having inspired it to me.
Much love and joy and tears,
