Okay, so exactly what is Artist's Kayak and who is it for?
I'm a little bit mystical about trying to describe it. I want to be open to what the posts are trying to tell me. I don't want to over-control it or force it to be something that it is not.
But at the core of it, there is this story that we all tell ourselves and the story already lives within us. It is a story that we desperately want to believe. It goes something like this:
Amid the haste and noise of modern life... a life that has become terribly out-of-balance, we can choose to take a better path that is more human and more sustainable. We can choose to take the road less traveled. We can step into our little boat, push off, and head down the river on a life-changing journey.
On this adventure, we begin by connecting with the sensations of the planet - the scent of the trees, the reflections on the water, the wafting breeze, the dragonfly that lands nearby. We take a closer look at the nature that surrounds us and we discover ourselves. We connect with something mystical and profound.
What happens to us on our journey? We exercise and develop our sense of being 'in touch' and 'in sync' with the universe.
Through this process of developing touch... On all planes - mind, body, and spirit - there is a sub-conscious awakening: We have taken initiative to save ourselves and restore balance in our lives. This is the road less traveled by. We realize our strength of will to reach out, appreciate, and love life. We made a choice. We can find what we are looking for. We can discover the amazing power of a personal quest. It is a healing journey.
And it's more than just a romantic idea or symbolic adventure story. There is some reality and truth to it.
