Time is deepening – and our story is, too

“Yes, the long memory is the most radical idea in this country. It is the loss of that long memory which deprives our people of that connective flow of thoughts and events that clarifies our vision, not of where we’re going, but where we want to go.”   ~Bruce ‘Utah’ Phillips

The Saloniere’s Manifesto

The first of a series from A Teaspoon of Water collaborator Beth Lorio about the tradition of Salon.
“Of the purpose of Poetry, Horace says: to inform or to entertain. I can do him one better.”

A Teaspoon of Water and the Third Mind

The basic problem in artistic endeavor is the tendency to split the artist from the audience and then try to send a message from one to the other.  — from the Dharma Art Letter, by Chogyam Trungpa

If there is magic on this planet, it is contained in water. -Loren Eiseley 

It’s official, Be Space is moving!

We’ve shared over four years in our beautiful studio home, and now it’s time to take the next step together. Within these walls, we’ve grown a community with a range of needs and inspirations that all link back to the deeper purpose of Be Space – to cultivate presence and expressive freedom. Thank you for being a part of this ongoing vision!

Using Everything

I continue to feel blessed by the remarkable gathering we shared last month. After culling through the photos and memories of this year's Life.Art.Being festival, I've put together a little recap to share with you. Enjoy!

Extending the Truth Mandala

We are all looking for ways that we can change the spell and mend our world. For me, for now, my way is to be humble and honest about my blind spots around race, and to practice the creative means that I believe will help us turn the corner toward a culture of wholeness.

Joyful Means, or why art can save us

In the face of all that is difficult… expressive art-making and connection with our living breathing selves & world make us more resilient. These practices open the door to a greater capacity to respond, and awaken a sense of belonging and connectedness.

About that long silence…

Be Space is getting its director back, full time and full heart.
Together, we are stepping onto the path of tending Be Space with all of the care and creative juice it deserves.
Into the bold and uncertain future…

The world rises to meet you

When we have the courage and willingness to show up as we are, we invariably discover those other genuine souls who are doing the same.

"Cultivating the capacity to be with our experience while being authentic and generous in our expression is my greatest joy."

I feel strongly that the expressive arts are a democratic, pedestrian and crucial domain. The conviction that these ‘magical technologies’ can deliver us to our humanity, our inherent connectedness, and a multi-dimensional presence is my primary motivation for creating Be Space.
