Opening Night of “The Sacred Shadow Self” – photo gallery

First of all, thanks to all the amazing helpers who have shown up to assist me with The Sacred Shadow Self: Meditation as Art

Without you, it wouldn’t have been possible.  I needed help watching my son so I could prepare, help with installing the wall sized pieces, help filling the gallery with amazing artwork, help with photo copying, help with performances and taking photos and videos during the performances and help to stay awake at work!  The magnitude of help I needed strikes me at how this kind of installation is more of a community event and how much more powerful and encompassing this exhibit has been.  In a way, that level of participation is also reflective of the meaning behind the installation.  The Sacredness that comes from the original source that brings us all back to our collective origins is the same sacredness that is manifested in our precious SELF.  Thank you.

Here are a few photos from the opening night:

Sacred Shadow Self Opening Performance Tomorrow: Anonymous. Spontaneous. Dance. Meditation

The Anonymous Spontaneous Dancer reveals herself:

When Karah Pino first asked me to be part of The Sacred Shadow Self I was hesitant to say yes because I am in a “non-performance state”, a state of creative development, and quiet reflection.

My Mother almost passed away three times in the last several months and I had been doing a lot of advanced grieving, introspection and forgiveness work during that time and to be honest, I was a bit overwhelmed by my own shadow self and all I wanted to do was escape into the lighter side of things.

I knew I would ultimately say yes though because Karah is a spiritual sister and when she appears in my life there is always a positive lesson attached.

So yes. I will be there, with my veil on, I will be there, hidden amongst the crowd and yet obvious to the eyes of anyone who is present. I will be a shadow of my self, a ghost of sorts, a fraction of who I am. I am not entirely sure what I will be doing but maybe I will see you through the veil. And maybe you will see me.

Karah Pino in Mindful Meditation and the Anonymous Dancer will end the Opening performances at 8:30pm during Artwalk.
