Creative Quest with Mountains
by Denise Schwab Exploring your Co-Creative Journey with Mountain
“Faeries, come take me out of this dull world,
For I would ride with you upon the wind,
Run on the top of the dishevelled tide,
And dance upon the mountains like a flame.”
We invite you to step further into this sacred journey and explore your relationship with Mountain through creative engagement.
Creative energy is life-force energy. It is the force that we are all a part of. Co-creative expression is about engaging and expressing our creative spirit in relation to the creative spirit of our environment, in this case, the life force of Mountain.
This journey begins as we acknowledge and bring gratitude to the creative spirit of Mountain. As in ceremony and gratitude circles, dedicate a sacred space for this time.
I also invite you to call upon a stone to serve as your guide as you travel this journey to co-create with Mountain.
We then set our intention to creatively explore our relationship with Mountain. Let mountain speak to you through materials; let images, forms, words, objects, color, landscapes, sound and texture come to you.
Archetypal forces within you could appear and the mythic relationship to mountain may present itself.
The creative force in Mountain may be felt in your body-allow yourself to move and engage with how the life force of mountain makes you feel-how her energy moves through you.
Let the questions below serve as further creative prompts to guide you on this journey.
What is your past, present relationship with the mountains?
How does this Mountain challenge you?
What is the most breath-taking view Mountain has given you?
What memories does Mountain evoke with you?
Be open to all possibilities as you open your heart and your hands and trust the process!
We would love for you to share with your process and your creative endeavors with us!
We honor that creativity comes in all forms-it is not just about creating “art” it is about engaging with life.
