TerraTara was born from the bones of an intuitively guided self exploration process called Intentional Creativity with Shiloh Sophia. This piece talks to me of my groundedness as I embody the Mother Earth energy of Terra coupled with the compassionate heart of Green Tara. She carries the flaming torch of passion in life – a staff of JOY. 

The elemental nature of fire is one that must be fed and tended. If allowed to burn out of control it does not last and it can leave destruction in its’ wake. If tended and cared for, it can keep one warm and comforted for a lifetime. The fire of life’s passion is one that needs be tended, and also requires fuel. TerraTara uses the composted painful experiences as fodder/fuel, after all the juicy beauty is extracted. 

Her blooming heart feeds other hearts with inspiration, as her heartbeat matches in cadence and quality the drumbeat of Spirit’s guidance. This is the drum of healing and grace. 

I include below several pages from my journal during the process of painting TerraTara, including the naming of her. Click on an image to see it larger.

The Process in Layers

Each layer results from an interior inquiry, the journaling an intrinsic part of accessing the information.
