candy colored studio podcast episode #195 - kathryn knight sonntag's "the mother tree, discovering the love and wisdom of our divine mother"
at a time of immense uncertainty, it’s comforting to have a few constants in our lives. for me, it’s family, friendship, art & most importantly: my relationship with deity. finding & creating new ways to connect with our heavenly parents in these times are invaluable. two years ago, kathryn knight sonntag invited us to consider our connections and relationship to heavenly mother through her poetry collection, the tree at the center. listen to episodes 87 & 88 for my interview with kathryn in 2020. today you’ll hear all about her new book: the mother tree - discovering the love and wisdom of our divine mother. beautiful imagery throughout the book invite us on a journey to better understand the realm of the divine feminine, our part in that journey, and the work that can be done to become our most authentic divine selves. enjoy!
throughout my life i was taught to separate media into two categories: the “imaginary” and “truth”. but what if it’s not that simple? what if there is truth hidden in films and fictional novels? what if there are lies hidden in “the news”? what if all this time i should have been discerning carefully between all the media i am inviting into my thoughts and life journey? what if, like an art exhibit, it’s all curated? should i be carefully curating a life of my own and what does that look like? does it take work? or should i simply allow others to curate my life, thoughts and views along my journey?
i also share about a recent “asherah” or heavenly mother commission: the process, the design, & the symbols included. it’s such a special experience creating alongside collectors, my heavenly parents, and savior. i’ll also share how my collector is including the piece in her holiday traditions -- inviting all to make new connections and revisit sweet things they’ve learned from their heavenly parents & savior. hooray for the holidays and this cozy season!

school is great, but there are some life lessons that can’t simply be taught at school, in a course, or by obtaining a university degree. two recent experiences with our older two boys are graciously providing our family with many life lessons. i’ll share 12 things that i see we’re learning from these simple and yet very profound life experiences.
also, the “visions of heavenly mother” art show at writ & vision was just a wonderful event and experience. thank you to those of you who were able to come and celebrate HER in this special way during the mother’s day season. My piece “souviens-toi” (asherah in full bloom) has sold, but i have been making & delivering prints. if you’d like a print of any of my asherah paintings, email me firstname.lastname@example.org or check out the PRINT SHOP on my website for pricing and sizes.
