I just arrived in The Netherlands yesterday in anticipation of our upcoming ‘The Feminine Art of Listening ~ Connecting Nature & Creativity’ workshop retreat this coming weekend. Very excited about that! (There’s no video this week as I was on the flight on filming day!).
How to Cultivate Freedom Within
I want to share this short and simple excerpt from my upcoming book (further details of which I will announce in later newsletters) on cultivating inner freedom through the arts:
“Through singing, dancing, acting or writing we can take on different roles whereby different aspects or ‘parts’ of our character emerge. We get to ‘be’ and express all the other aspects which we might not allow ourselves to express in our ‘normal’ daily interactions. One of the reasons people feel such joy when they dance with abandon to music, paint, act in a play or write, is because they feel freedom within whether they feel restricted by their outside life circumstances or not. That feeling of freedom is expansive, it opens our hearts and we feel JOYFUL. We are getting to EXPRESS more of who we are. And that feels good.” © Jane A. Cormack 2012
