tranquility du jour #162: creative exploration 2

Bonjour. Welcome to the 162nd edition of Tranquility du Jour: a guide to bringing tranquility to your every day. Today’s show menu features happenings and creative exploration with Sabrina Ward Harrison.

Tranquilology Teleclass: Join moi for our next tranquilology teleclass "New Year, New You" on Monday, January 4 at 9pm ET. $10. View petals from summer's teleclass.

Tranquility Tip: How do geese know when to fly to the sun? Who tells them the seasons? How do we, humans know when it is time to move on? As with the migrant birds, so surely with us, there is a voice within if only we would listen to it, that tells us certainly when to go forth into the unknown. – Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

Reflect on what this new fall season means to you. What do you want to see unfold?

Workshops + RetreatsAnnual Fall Foliage retreat to the hills of Virginia October 16-18 and Tranquil Space 10-year birthday bash on October 30. Consider the 3rd annual New Year's Gala on January 9, 4th annual Hip Tranquil Chick retreat March 26-28, and a week long sojourn to lush Costa Rica May 29-June 5. All the scoop is on my workshops page.
Featured Tranquilista:
Creative pioneer, Sabrina Ward Harrison has been sharing her life through a vivid interplay of artwork, photography, writing and video.Sabrina’s authentic approach to life & art has encouraged people all over the world to come from a place of honest expression and what Sabrina likes to call…True Living.   

Two years ago I ended up in a field of grass hip high.This is where I began to make the body work that has come to be called The True Living Project. The entire True Living Project consists of 68 site~specific lifetime collaborative projects. She has recently returned to New York after 2 years spent along the Central California coast living in a historic One Room School house taking manya bath outside. she left with 23 cents.

Sabrina is the creator of four groundbreaking published journals;  the first one being published at the age of 23: Spilling Open; The Art of Becoming Yourself Villard 1999, Brave on the Rocks; If you don’t Go You Don’t See, Villard 2001, Messy Thrilling Life; the Art of Figuring out How to Live Villard 2004 and The True And the Questions; a journal Chronicle Books 2005, which is based on the teaching of The Art of Becoming Yourself. A course she created in 1996 with a belief that she
hold strong to, that, “we must create what we most need to find.”

‘As we have barreled deeper and deeper into a technological / result driven 21st century now more than ever I do believe we need to be bought home to the presence of our living. to allow the restful validation of your own tender true humanity, may this work be a living ode to our living. I am striving to create both a visual and emotional unfolding through the textural interchange of photography, sound, collage, film and found objects. As you observe, as you listen may you rest into that place where this moment, and your deepest longing exist.’
