The Theme of Colour


Once again is was a stimulating and inspirational session on the theme of Colour. We started out in our inner sacred circle doing a brief check in followed by each of us intuitively choosing a colour that resonated for us last Tuesday morning from a Colour Therapy book. We read the interpretations and then went back to our writing spaces to write with our new coloured pens  (no black or blue ink today!). We wrote for fifteen minutes and then shared some of our writing. Lots of interesting discussinn and laughter ensured and before we knew it we had just enough time to  have a brief show and tell when T showed us her Vision Stage and both Creativity Doll and Demon. Jane showed up her Creativity Doll. Throughout Julia Cameron’s book there are always many more tasks than there is ever time to do so it was superb that two ladies took/made some time to think of what a creativity doll OR creativity demon might look like!

Kudos to you Jane and T!

One think that I missed saying that one of the uses of the provided highlighter pens is to highlight the ‘juicy bits’ as you read each chapter excerpt. And the theme of Colour is so well…colourful!

Even though we started out in a predomindantly beige church hall for Session One the second session featured a string of brightly coloured   prayer flags neon paper and coloured pens to write with. Certainly, as my time to depart for Mexico draws nearer and some days are getting grayer and cooler I am stating to crave the visual banquet that is Mexico! Centro San Miquel de Allende has a more limited colour palette due to it being a historical UNESCO site but once outside the inner core of the city the houses start to explode with colour and often contrasting colours! pink and orange or green and purple houses are not uncommon and a constant visual delight on my daily walkabouts hither and yon and yon and hither!

Next week, now that we know each other better the next theme is Self Disclosure, Secret and Cinema Selves which  I:m sure will make for lively discussion next Tuesday and beyond…
