There is inspiration all around us, but rarely do most of us take the time to witness and reflect it. We can find infinite sources of inspiration right where we live and infinite means of reflection with means that exist right at our fingertips. For this weekend we will spend time being aware of our surroundings and developing tools for reflecting back what we see. The materials will be simple; pencils, pens, and paper; and the methods will be ancient. But, within this simplicity is the possibility of coming closer to yourself and the mark you make on this world. I have spent my entire life working in this manner and am happy to share what I have found through all these years and all these marks. Every individual will walk away from the weekend with more opportunities to observe their world and depict what they see through these simple tools and skills they will be bring home with them.
The building at Earthsong we will be using is Ayeli Cherokee. Dress appropriately for spending time outside.
Please bring lunch, snacks, and water.
David Hale was born in 1984 and raised along an unnamed creek in central Georgia. He spent much of his childhood outside exploring and inside drawing, and these two central themes were always bound be his relationship to the Divine. Spirit spoke to him along the banks of that muddy creek, and he found his best response in the marks made by his hands. David watched the woods around his home transformed in the name of greed and excess, and saw his beloved creek turned into a fenced in detention pond. He now finds his home along another creek, on the Beloved Land, between the forks of the Oconee River, and he honors it with his heart and his hands. Now he explores and creates with his wife Emily, his son Crow, and the animals that share their home. David makes marks in many different ways, but all are humble reflections of the same Divine Love he is offered daily.
