i had never stood before a canvas
and placed paint upon it.
until i met
you might already know how confrontive a blank canvas can be,
how entering a world you know nothing about
can strike fear in your heart;
and you would be right.
today i am here to say
flora bowley have set me free!
this is how flora has filled our hearts,
transformed, encouraged and supported each of us
in a five week E course
together hundreds from around the world
have gathered each day to
celebrate intuition, cultivate trust,
connect deeply to our body, mind, spirit and allow
unique and expressive paintings to emerge naturally,
these blossoms are a testimony of fully immersing myself
in the moment;
to embracing infinite possibilities
and following the thread of fascination in trust.
quieting the mind
that would be oh so happy to remind me
that i do not know how to paint;
and connecting to flora's transformational
overshadowing fear with playfulness,
resistance with curiosity, hesitation for willingness,
embracing intuition with an
intense feeling of aliveness.
where i once believed painting was a foreign language
shared only by a chosen few,
i stand before each new blank canvas joyfully
moving paint on the bright landscape of mystery,
welcoming each new conversation of unfolding.
giving myself completely to
intrigue and fascination,
to the silence, the paint, the unfurling;
supported by flora
whose life work is to encourage brave unfolding
i made the ultimate leap through the portal of painting;
of allowing, watching, welcoming,
if you are longing to
"let go, be bold, unfold"
the next session of Bloom True is waiting for you!

thank you flora, thank you brave self,
