Summertime on Moosehead Lake in Maine: The “ArtSeek” program, designed by Rev. “Twinkle” Marie Porter-Manning, is where “The Artist’s Way” meets “The Seeker’s Guide”!! Inspired by the works and wisdom of Julia Cameron and Elizabeth Lesser, the ArtSeek curriculum is designed to:
✫ Re-establish the artist’s commitment to her work
✫ Cultivate a relationship with whatever serves as her Muse
✫ Build a support system to foster continued creativity and joy
This is the meditation room in my home. I open this and my home up to friends when they need a quiet place to sit, gather their thoughts, connect with their hearts, either in solitude or in small group ritual.
I often host gatherings in my home honoring my own Unitarian Universalist spiritual traditions and explore the mystery of living on this planet.
I also welcome friends from various faiths and traditions to come lead workshops, retreats, meditations and concerts.
If you feel called to gather together for any of these, let me know and I am happy to host.
Or, if you desire to simply have a place to come, sit and reflect, I offer my home for that too.
The story in this video sites the Christian Fable, yet the tradition pre-dates Christianity:
Brigid’s cross and its spiritual tradition in Ireland is far older than Christianity. The Goddess Brigid was one of the Tuatha Dé Danann. Her feast day was the feast of Imbolc, and the cross made of rushes today is very likely the descendant of a pagan symbol whose original meaning may have been locally understood even into the early 20th century in rural Ireland. One remnant of that tradition in the meaning of the Brigid’s Cross today, is that it is said to protect a house from fire.
