Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall



Mirror, Mirror was a blog post, written not long ago that you all seemed to enjoy. Personally, I was so inspired by thinking about mirrors and image that I have developed a new workshop called Mirror, Mirror on the Wall.

So far, this will be offered as an art & spirituality workshop with the theme of new beginnings and vision quest into the dreamed image of the self, in January 2015 and March 2015. The January workshop will be the first weekend after the New Year and will tie into New Years Resolutions. It will be held at Life Force Arts Foundation in Chicago on January 3, 2015 from 1 pm - 6 pm. The second one will take place the weekend of Spring Equinox '15 at Aquarius Bookstore in Kansas City, Missouri. I anticipate that these workshops will be fun and motivational. I may offer them in other cities as well. This will be a part of my new book tour for "Mama Nature's Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss."

Here is a description of the Spring Equinox rendition:

Mirror, Mirror on the Wall


A workshop offered by Artist, Healer and Author Stephanie Rose Bird 

10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Saturday, March 28, 2015 Aquarius Bookstore, Kansas City, Missouri



Overview



Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall invites students to engage with the Goddesses and other helpful spirits such as orishas and lwas, in the journey toward metamorphosis and self-transformation. Inspired by Stephanie Rose Bird’s newest book: Mama Nature’s Spiritual Guide to Weight Loss: How Earth Rituals, Goddess Invocations, Incantations, Affirmations and Natural Remedies Enhance Any Weight Loss Plan” this workshop asks attendees to take a deep look at their self, with an eye towards how they want to be in the near future. Spring is a time of transformation and we embrace the beauty around and within us. This workshop encourages students to get in touch with their inner self to inspire their outward being. By the end of this all day workshop, students will have set a new goal and vision of themselves, creatively and visually in 2-d and 3-d through sculpture, crafting, scrying, vision quest and drawing. 

Hope to work with some of you in these workshops!
More information will be posted online soon and I will keep you posted as things develop.

Autumn Equinox Gardening Reflection Part 2

Poof!
We planted, and the little seedlings took.
They fluttered in the wind, and were visited by bees and butterflies.
The seedlings and plants seemed to enjoy the composted earth and worms, by all indications.











Gran Bwa

Gran Bwais a lwa that helps you connect to ancestral roots or the spiritual home of Vodou. A friend of mine, who is an expert on Haitian Vodou, who has spent a lot of time in Haiti with the artists there, told me I had painted Gran Bwa when I made this spontaneous work out of walnut ink and sumi-ink on handmade paper. I had considered this painting a self-portrait. She now holds this piece in her private collection:

Quite a few people are afraid of Vodou but it is an awe-inspiring tradition of bringing together plant energy with divinity, spiritual and personal energy. My friend who is very involved with Vodou, especially the art that surrounds it, is from European ancestry. She is light in spirit and bubbly, with a close relationship to nature and her garden.  Vodou affirms the relationships between cycles of life, trees of knowledge and spirit.  The Vodou vision of lwa, understands them as the intelligence of energy present in humans, nature and thoughts.  Mysteries can be understo…
