Gaia Contemplating Her Earth Self
When I make healing dolls I create a container for my feelings. When I make a doll that express emotion I am being in-relationship WITH my feelings, my self and all my relations on the planet that are experiencing these feelings.
Why make healing dolls such as these?
1. To release the feeling from my bodymind.
2. To take a stand about something happening in the world that affects me deeply.
I have recently discovered the term Subtle Activism?
Subtle Activism is an activity of consciousness or spirit, such as prayer, meditation, or ecstatic dance, or art intended to support collective healing and social change. Subtle Activism grows from the idea that there are many effective ways – some newly emerging, many as old as humanity – to positively influence social change other than overt political action.
My dolls are my way of taking subtle action and be a creative activist. You can read more about it here http://gaiafield.net/what-is-subtle-activism/
