I love this Gina - it moves about and it looks like something I could do myself, which inspires a bit of confidence which I'm lacking in this area. Thank you.

Hello Colleen, the sort of marks on paper I am making are all discovery and play.They grow organically as the ideas and the body move to interpret the ideas. The confidence I have gained doing this sort of thing is wonderful after 20 odd years of having to perform to a standard for portraiture. And the most wonderful thing is that I don't judge it good or bad like I used to with my work, it just is.

I did this painting in response to looking at artists on the retreat, in the style of Pollock, just to have a go and see what happens. It was such good fun. Done on lining paper with ready mixed children's paints, a big brush and a couple of palette knives.

I am helping to run a creative expression group and this is the sort of thing we are doing to break out of the mould or what "art" should be and all the inherent judgements we make about our own and others "art"

I wish you well in having a go yourself. Have fun. Gina x

How beautiful to be able to work like this - and how lucky you are to be able to share your confidence in the creative expressions groups. If I was in the UK, I'd love to come to a group like this. I'm deffinately going to play like this as soon as I can get at my paints...

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland - paper presented at European Shin Conference 2012

Grounded in Faith: Psychotherapy and Pureland

Since the time of the Buddha people have looked to Buddhism as a source of salvation from their unhappiness and confusion. In the modern age, psychotherapy has become a route which many people choose to help them face and move beyond their personal suffering. Not surprisingly many Western therapists tend to gravitate towards Buddhist ideas and, conversely, Buddhists are often interested in exploring how their faith…

Running Tide Article

I wrote this article for Running Tide back in January but it didnt get published and as Running Tide has only just come out, things had obviously moved on. I'm putting it up here because it seems like a pity to waste a good article - or even a mediocre one!
