We started our evening indulging ourselves in a sound bath.. Since one of our ladies was out sick, I joined in. One at a time, each woman stood in the center of a circle while the rest of us walked slowly around her. While walking, we each made a different sound or tone, bathing the woman in the center in a sea of soft, gentle sounds. I could have stood there all night.
Relaxed, we moved into our evening discussing possibility. Our creative project was a series of blind contour drawing exercises. First we drew a bouquet of wonky flowers, then self-portraits, and finally each other. Blind contour drawing involves not looking at what you are drawing (at all) and not lifting your pen or pencil from the page; you only look at the object you are drawing. It's challenging, but freeing and fun.
