What does it mean to be in sanctuary?

The form holds the space and the space is there for the form. Lean in and investigate.
Uliai Williams

I am presently occupying at Artist Residency space at Wingsong Sanctuary on Waiheke Island, which is home of Ngati Paoa iwi, in the Hauraki Gulf.

How does being in sanctuary space affect my residency?

Space, silence, stillness
Conscious action
Deliberate movement
Observance of surroundings
Feminity – receptivity

Heart opening
Learning as I teach
Opening to possibilities
Burning the ego in soul fire

Everything is medicine
Sunsets, oceans, Pohutukawa
Patience with other people
Divine timing

Leaning in to opportunity
Letting go of expectation

Knowing when to act and when to receive
Spaciousness, relaxation, nurturing
Appreciation of other people
ideas, needs and boundaries
Everything is medicine
Everything is sacred

  1. Glad to hear you are enjoying the beautiful feminine Waiheke Island Where some of my creative family reside. At this time of the year I remember the Island would become a lot more silent as the winter months would slow down the visitors coming to the island. But it’s a great time to regenerate. And take time out for thoughts.
    Peace and kind thoughts to you Karen
