Summer’s End ~ Passionate Abundance ~Pain Your Aliveness
The Earth is fruiting. This passionate revelation offers us a creative palate to paint our aliveness.
- Make a list of all the plants you know that are growing very close to where you live. Write the name of each one on a seperate piece of paper.
- With paints, crayons, colored pencils, and/or markers make three, large drawings.
- As you make these drawing focus mostly on color. (Don’t worry about detail)
- The first drawing with all the colors of the plants that you listed.
- The second drawing with all the colors in the sky.
- The third drawing with all the color of the earth.
- Lay these drawings outside on the earth, the one with plant colors in the middle, sky above and earth below.
- Now quickly with somewhat reckless abandon, begin to place the plant names on this area where you intuitively feel they belong. (Don’t think about it too much.)
- Lay down next to the drawings with plant names laid out all over.
- Notice how each plant corresponds to your body.
- Make notes if you like.
- Offer gratitude.
