"our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. We ask ourselves, 'Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?' Actually, who are you not to be? We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. " marianne williamson

How terrifying: To have this reality of the female heart revealed so blatantly. Perhaps the reality of the human heart.
What if we were to release our sense of the inadequate, realize it truly is a deeply impassioned desire to embrace a power that stirs in us and fully trust in this? What would happen? Where would we be taken on such a faith filled, passionate ride? Who would be impacted by our resolute determination to grab-hold of such a glory and move beyond that first unction to shine brilliantly? Not in and of ourselves, but with a light we cannot control; one that burns through us and grows exponentially, pulling in all who are near to embrace and enlighten and empower?
What if just one of us started?
What if just one of us believed?
What if just one of us trusted in our God given brilliance and awoke each morning to simply let it shine where it may? Just one of us~
in love. trish

We've just had the great joy of adding Tonia Davenport ( to the lineup for EncaustiCamp 2011. She will be joining us as an assistant; this rounds out our need for workshop assistants and I am overjoyed to have her on board! With just one more instructor to confirm, we are well on our way to fully staffed~and with anticipation, I hope to have this element resolved by the end of the month. (see side bar for the full lineup and blog links thus far)
In the meantime, early registration is open through only. Visit the site (, check out the information as it is so far, and if you know you are in and want to secure your spot, send Patricia an email. You will be able to submit your 'first choice' options for workshops as first in line registers as soon as descriptions and final instructor go live in December. If questions about fees, payment methods or lodging options arise, please inquire so that I can clarify and give you the best I can give!
thank you for joining us. It is going to be big~ in love. trish
