One World One Heart 2011

Logo2011smallWelcome to Wild Spirit Dancing ~ home of the Wild Things! It's so much fun to meet all the wonderful bloggers from around the world like this and it would not be possible without the generous soul(who is quite obviously to us a Wild Thing!) who conceived of an organised One World One Heart  ~ I'm sure I'm not the first one to say "Heartfelt Thanks!"

My name is Shena Meadowcroft and I am an Intuitive, Writer, Artist and Teacher. I live on the wonderful island of Gabriola, off Vancouver Island, on the west coast of British Columbia, Canada.

My days are spent counseling, consulting or creating; either through my writing or my art, which takes on many forms as the ideas unfold. That’s when I’m not meandering along the shore line or in the forest where I find my inspiration and restore my soul ~

My whole focus is to work with people to provide them with a safe place to remember and discover more of who they are. So much of that can be done through journaling, writing, art and sharing our own truth. I love what I do and feel truly blessed to be able to inspire others to do the same.

As you can imagine, my work is quite intense and one day, just for the sheer fun of it, I decided to make a Wild Thing! And have been making them ever since... They are one of my ways of going wild with colour in my life (I usually wear black...) meditating and relaxing, a perfect excuse to go to the recycling centre every week (I call it all part of the job) and best of all to work outside most of the summer!

Best of all - in a life sometimes too full of meaning, they serve absolutely no purpose whatsoever... or so I thought... but you'll have to read their stories... I love how they make people smile ~

My prize for the giveaway a pair of Wild Things! of your choice. Made entirely from recycled materials no two are the ever the same. And neither will you be when they enter your life!
The card that comes with them says:
"Wild Things!
because... Inside each and every one of us
there still is a Wild Spirit...dancing"

The winning name will be drawn on February 17th. Please leave a comment if you would like to be entered into the draw, and your email address so I can contact you should you win.


Thank you so much for playing awhile with me and the Wild Things!

May you have a wild and wonderful day ~

MissMary said...

... as if your spirit is too big for your skin and it just wants to come shooting out your fingertips and toes and the top of your head... and being spun around a dance floor to bluegrass music or big band swing doesn't hurt, either! been subscribing to this philosophy for years, so glad to see someone creating a tangible representation--and so perfectly colorful!--of all that!
