International Soul Art Day is annual celebration held on May 14 that brings together Soul Artist from around the world to connect virtually and create art together for the day. Yesterday, I joined the Soul Art Day celebration by listening to recordings of two Google Hangout session and creating my own body mapping art project.

The body mapping art project allowed me to trace my hands and feet, journal, and create a mixed media collage (see photo above). The collage has become a visual affirmation and celebration of what’s living in my creative heart.

Have you ever participated in an online creativity challenge, event, or project that encouraged you to explore and honor your creative process?

Happy Tuesday!

For the next three weeks I am participating in Tracy Lee Jones’ The Feminine Business Model’s Global Telejam Series. I am using the Series as my reset button for 2013. So far, I have watched the “How to Cultivate Your Creativity (aired today)” with Jennifer Lee of Artizen CoachingGoddess Leonie Dawson, and Laura Hollick.

Jennifer Lee’s book, The Right-Brain Business Plan has been so powerful in my life. Goddess Leonie is someone I have admired for years. I met Jennifer and Leonie while reading the Pink Heels blog and web site (no longer in existence) created by Jennifer Moore. I also connected with them through Jamie Ridler’s Next Chapter Book Blogging Group. Leonie is a true inspiration!

The Telejam Series is helping me stay focused and on track with my intention to live dharma happiness. My intention guides my fierce living commitments to healthy eating and cooking, regular fitness (biking, running, walking, weight training, and taking a weekly yoga class at Tranquil Space or Embrace DC), making time each day for meditation/Reiki/yoga, getting sufficient rest and sleep each day, having fun and laughing daily, dancing, maintaining my home as a creative/loving/healing sanctuary, spending time with family and friends weekly, enjoying/expressing my creativity, participating in my spiritual communities on a monthly basis, and finishing the publisher’s edits for my Digital Sisterhood memoir and having the book published this winter with EASE, GRACE, JOY, and PEACE!
