And the Great Mother said:

Come my child and give me all that you are.

I am not afraid of your strength and darkness, of your fear and pain.

Give me your tears. They will be my rushing rivers and roaring oceans.

Give me your rage. It will erupt into my molten volcanoes and rolling thunder.

Give me your tired spirit. I will lay it to rest in my soft meadows.

Give me your hopes and dreams. I will plant a field of sunflowers and arch rainbows in the sky.

You are not too much for me. My arms and heart welcome your true fullness.

There is room in my world for all of you, all that you are.

I will cradle you in the boughs of my ancient redwoods and the valleys of my gentle rolling hills.

My soft winds will sing you lullabies and soothe your burdened heart.

Release your deep pain. You are not alone and you have never been alone.

Linda Reuther


Dear Ones,


The natural world is a living, breathing garden of wonder, beauty, and wisdom, unfolding in divine perfection and synchronistic majesty. Long ago, the wise ones understood that we are intimately connected to our Great Mother Earth. She is our guardian and our protector, offering us vital, life-giving nurturance.

Yet we have forgotten our holy connection with Mother Earth and all her children. We have forgotten the sacred truth that we are all one, intimately connected in the Great Web of Life. The price of this forgetting is a world fraught with illness and imbalance.

It is time to remember, to come home to ourselves and our planet. It is time to live in harmony with all of creation once again. As we heal our own bodies and hearts, we heal Mother Earth. As we heal Mother Earth, we heal ourselves. Mother Earth holds tremendous wisdom and ancient healing medicine for our bodies, hearts, and souls. She has secrets to share and stories to tell, stories that will reawaken us to the deeper memory of our connection to all living things. Are you ready to renew and rebalance, to reconnect and remember?


Our sweet Mother Earth is waiting for you with open arms.


Won’t you join us?





Magical summer days spent immersing ourselves in the extraordinary beauty of Orcas Island and attuning to the healing wisdom of Mother Each through Intentional Creativity, visioning, journaling, painting, prayer, and play.



We have so much magic in store for you. Here’s a glimpse . . .

Intentional Creativity with Katherine

Painting as a Tool for Integration, Discovery, Healing and Empowerment
Painting Mother Earth
Through the magic of Intentional Creativity, we will learn to reconnect with the spirit of Mother Earth and call an image of her into form. Each of us will create a powerful 24 x 30 painting of Mother Earth that will delight, nurture, heal, and inspire us. Our paintings will hold the energetic, symbolic, and visual record of our journey of reconnection.
Through visioning, active imagination, and journaling, we will learn to listen to Mother Earth and receive her healing messages–messages that she has held deep within until we were ready to receive them. Once we connect to Mother Earth in this sacred way, she will always be available to us for guidance and support. Our paintings will serve as a powerful reminder of our renewed connection with Her. We can return to them again and again for wisdom, comfort, and healing.
Absolutely no painting experience necessary. We promise. The painting experience is a gentle, fully guided, step-by-step process.
