Tending Your Garden:
Creativity, Ideas & Intuition
Reclaim your creative Self to re-align with the path you were meant to walk.
The Seed of Tending Your Creative Garden
The "north star" of TYG comes back to the simple and yet complex concept of building and maintaining one's own creative garden. Caring for this dynamic space that changes throughout the phases our of day, year and lifetime is an essential part of moving through the world with brave love. This inner garden reminds us of the creative wisdom living right inside of you, to re-align with the creative grooves of your body, heart, spirit and mind...and the brave love to share your gifts with the world.
Así que uno planta su propio jardín y decora su propia alma,
en lugar de esperar a que alguien le traiga flores.
So you plant your own garden and embellish your own soul,
instead of waiting for someone to bring flowers to you.
-Jorge Luis Borges
From the poem
"Uno Aprende / You Learn"
Who is Tending Your Creative Garden for?
TYG is primarily intended for female/femme - identifying souls who are looking to re-align with their creative path. It is an invitation to those souls who perhaps have had a “nagging feeling” or idea of what they are meant to do while on Earth and don’t want to wait any longer to bring this beautiful idea into the world.
TYG provides guidance and tools alongside support from a nourishing community of other souls who are also undergoing a similar creative transformation. Despite the kind of individualism we may have been taught, we can’t and don’t need to do this alone.
The (False) Story We’ve Been Told. And The Power We Have To Unlearn.
Being a “creative” has been largely colonized as a title and identity that only some can hold.
The reality is, our creative self is a deeply vital part of aligning and fulfilling our path while we’re here. It is our birthright to re-connect and re-align with our creative selves to not only walk our path and give space for the ideas to come through, but to also share this beautiful wisdom with our communities and collectives here on Earth.
This sharing of creative gifts back out into the world with our communities helps to complete the full creative cycle that will continue to nourish these arisings within you.
And again, and again. The most amazing rinse and repeat cycle ever.
So amazing, right?
Rest is the foundation of building and tending to our creative garden. We will mine and explore rest while building nests and caves (literally and conceptually) in this first month of our time together. To regain and reconnect with our creative Self, rest is necessary, not a luxury.
We immerse our souls into the grooves of our creative flow. Our emotional selves are an immense super power in our creative birthing process, offering us more insight into our creative grooves. We will focus our time on our relationship with emotions in the context of creativity, examining where we can develop ritual and ceremony and tenderness around our emotional selves to immerse ourselves in the creative flowing river inside of us.
The creative birthing process is full of sparks, embers, flames, bonfires...all sorts of fire. We explore discernment and intuition to help us better understand when a creative flame comes through. Fire gives us the power of truth with ourselves and the courage to share that truth with others in the world.
We touch into our personal creative magic. Birthing requires so many parts of us. It requires the brave love of flight, a beautiful mix of expansion and contraction all at once. This month explores collaging the last three months of experience, changes and tools and what it means for you to birth an idea into reality.
TYG: A Four Month Creative (Self) Residency
The goal of TYG is a multi-lensed, layered collage of readings, tools, talks, reflections and provocations / inpirations, all in the name of creative liberation on the individual and collective level.
Over 16 weeks, we will tend to our creative inner gardens and let the blooming arise.
