The only word I know to use at this point is ecstatic. That's how I feel even after a nine hour car drive, a couple loads of laundry, hours spent catching up on emails, and putting all the workshop supplies away.
Ecstatic that this workshop provided a space where twelve beautiful women tapped into something very good and unique in each others presence. Ecstatic that we allowed a bond to form so quickly among us, that we took part in a greater vision and it proved to have yielded more than we could have imagined.
What was it? The perfect alignment of the planets?
The energy of the house?
The trusting and open hearts?
The letting go of all things except to be present?
Winter Wax 2017 took place in a newly inhabited Victorian home. A home that is experiencing a beautiful transition. A transition that honors its past and embraces the polish. A home in Lexington, Kentucky owned by Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch and husband, John Govaert.
Winter Wax 2017 was the vision of Patricia, and in collaboration with Brenda Tassava, a woman who skillfully empowers women to speak their dreams and embrace them, and myself, a lover of sharing all I know and being in full presence with my fellow creators. We did what we do, and we did it well.
Winter Wax 2017 was twelve beautiful women who stepped up to the table and allowed themselves to be open to the new, truthful in their voice, and above all supportive of one another.
The art that was created, the stories we told, the poems that we read, the meals that we shared, and the goals we set are all worthy of celebration.
I'm so honored to have been a part of this very special week. This is the kind of high that I could live on. In gratitude, thank you Patricia Baldwin Seggebruch for seeing this come to life. We are all the richer for it.
