Amidst the sunflowers

I have been waiting for you.


WELCOME


SIT


TAKE TIME


Don't look away from my scars:

they hold knowledge, wisdom 

and the beauty of the night.

May the silence holding this space hold you

as you meander through these pages.

May the exhale of longing draw you under your skin

and

May you hear your soul's drums

beating for your return.

ABOUT ANAMCARA

FRIEND OF THE SOUL

'Anamcara : a person to whom you can reveal the hidden intimacies of your life... Friendship as an act of recognition and belonging.... cutting across all convention and category.'  John O'Donohue 

 

ABOUT PAOLA

 A teacher's mind, a healer's heart, an artist's soul and a liberator's spirit. Her work draws life from the sharp clarity of a keen observer's eye, the insights and grounding of extensive and ongoing personal inner work and self-reflection, the landscape of poetry and mysticism, and the deep, still listening to the movements of WHAT IS.

FROM HEART THROUGH ART TO COMMUNITY CREATION

Building community starts with opening the heart and bringing who we are in the presence of another human being; respecting the different paths we have walked on, valuing the richness of our joys and our struggles, accepting the mirrors we offer each other and the mutual sharpening action of our voices.

 

THE SPOKEN ENCOUNTER

Exploring the reality and the messiness of life's transitions and interior change through dialogues and conversations.

Lights in the Dark
 

ORIGINAL ARTWORK & POETRY

An ongoing personal dialogue between inner and outer life through brushes, pencils, colours and words.
