soul

vessel =

safety & support

Alchemical Vessel = Creative Container

A container holds soul growth. Like a baby bird in an egg & nest, we expand within the safety & support of a shell & nest until we are ready to break free, fly & make our own nest with eggs of our own. This is a kit to help you.
The soul is the sacred space where my head and heart meet, where God lives. [God, goodness by any name]
Brene Brown

Create Sacred Space

A container is essential to hold us as we grow & transform. From the shell of an egg to a protective circle, containers hold us as an alchemical vessel for soul . . . in all its forms.
We need to create sacred space a temonos for our time. Without it we fragment and fall apart. Even as we are falling apart at the seams now, we need to create circles of containment for the crises to come. From ecological grief and catastrophe to epidemics in homelessness, suicide, depression, addiction and anxiety, we need additional containment to help our center or soul hold us together, just as we hold each other in community . . . our ultimate vessel.

There are many forms of containers and ways to create them, layers within layers like a nesting doll. We need these layers because we need to grow and transform rapidly to meet the rapid change around us and within us. 
Your sacred space is where you can find yourself again and again.
Joseph Campbell

You are the acorn & the oak in all its stages

Acorns are containers that hold our potential . . . or pinecones or any other seedling. The point is that we grow into who we are & are meant to become. You cannot become a weeping willow if you are a poplar (though you can try). Yet, too often we are born in a container (home, family, society, etcetera) that calls us to be something & someone that we are not. If unchecked, this causes distortion, broken limbs & lost potential. A container helps protect us from this outside potential, giving us time to grow into ourselves.

Our mission is to co-create a container 

homeless, youth & veterans
life born from death
a path for the future for all life
creativity & imagination

Ramana Maharshi
Your body is a divine container that will change over your lifetime. Revel in this! Notice it! This is the way of things: the softening of the shell so the soul may emerge.
Sara Wiseman

We are a container for our soul

We create containers all the time, but they are unconscious and imperfect, broken and cracked. This is a calling to create individually and collectively in ways that are conscious, creative, collaborative and whole. Like the Japanese art of putting broken pottery pieces back together with gold, we remember our dismembered parts into a greater whole that is strongest where we are broken. The alchemical gold we create serves all of us, fitting our many pieces together from the individual to the cosmos as one in this Great Work of Art.

Containering Tools

We learn to create in the image of our soul, but we are imperfect vessels, pieced together. Yet the gold of soul can heal us and allow us to hold the power of soul without shattering us or misdirecting the soul's energy. It is a matter of safety for ourselves & others that we begin & continue to create containers. 

Learn & play with different ways to vessel your soul

  • Video & Social Media
  • Creative Growth
  • Sharing & Caring
  • Embodying Soul

Containing Paradox:  

Containers allow us to open & close our heart. They separate & protect us but also unite & connect us. 

Gift Economy 

Economy comes from oikos ("house") + nemein ("management"), to create a home of shared resources.
"Sacred space" is another way of saying 'with intention'"
S Kelley Harrell

We co-create earth as sacred space

Our planet needs us . . . our children and future generations. Nature needs us. More than anything, the earth is a vessel for soul--our souls & all souls. Through bio-mimicry (learning from & copying nature), we begin by starting to create containers with natural metaphors of an egg & nest, acorn & oak, as a way to connect with our bodies & their organic growth. Just as we are a part of nature, our soul is natural, growing in us and through us. The key is to co-create with soul to recreate ourselves as their vessel. 

Relationships Contain Us

Seek those who support you as YOU

Containers are easier to maintain if others support vs destroy them.

Love is our Gold & Glue

Holding us together body & soul (essential containers)

Our broken places are stronger, whether in a sword, life, body or pot.
