An online Women’s Creativity Circle – designed to help you consciously engage with how you RELATE to self, others and our world, through the insightful experience of keeping a daily contemplative creative practice.

We will draw inspiration & guidance from the Seven Sacred Teachings. Taught to me by my father and elders in circle, these core values of relationship, passed on to many of the indigenous tribes here in North America, were given to help ALL people of the Earth heal divisions, so that we might live in Peace & Harmony with All Our Relations.


Walking in a sacred manner is making a connection between your step and the heartbeat of the world.

— Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee


RELATE 2016 dates:

November 1 – 29, 2016


What is a Contemplative Creativity Circle?

To contemplate is to mark out a space in time for observation, listening deeply and musing (reflection).
Creative practice is a conscious process of engagement with intuition, illuminating connections, activation, empowering resiliency and exploring spontaneous, honest expression while experimenting with stretching our comfort zone and honoring our truth.

Those who join RELATE will be part of a global circle of conscious women coming together with a shared intention and drawing support from the collective energy of simultaneous inner exploration.

The 2016 RELATE Creative Circle is…

A 21 day personal practice that focuses on your intuitive creativity, innate wholeness and inherent connection – leading us up to the beginning if the holiday season, when many of us will have the chance to put the guiding concepts to practice within our families and relationships

:: A chance to strengthen your confidence and nurture your commitment to developing your own creative practice

:: A heart-centered way to safely explore how you articulate and integrate your feminine wisdom, with inspiration and guiding tools for aligning your outer life with your inner truth

:: A way to discover and experience the natural pulse of reverence and sacred medicine always within you


How does it work?

:: Once a day (during the 21 day practice) you will receive an email with a link to inspirational content to guide your daily practice.

The content will be in a private online classroom. Content will vary and come in the forms of text, audio and/or video. Internet connection will be required to access the content, and you will have unlimited access to come and go as you please until at least March 1, 2017.

:: There will be a private facebook group for personal support and connection with one another, including others who have participated in the Relate circle in previous years (and may be joining us again)

:: 2016 Circle schedule:

  • October 31/November 1, Receive Welcome + tips for beginning
  • November 2, Begin the sacred teachings and your 21 day creative practice, which will last from Nov. 2- Nov. 22 (but can be extended and self-paced by you to fit your schedule, as well)
  • November 1, 8, 15, 22, optional designated Q&A time with me in our private facebook group (or via email, if facebook is not your thing)
  • November 29, Live-Online Closing Circle: 8pm EDT, where we will center on closure (or continuing) our personal practices, create in our journals and connect. This is an optional, bonus gathering held on the Zoom platform – you won’t miss any content if you can’t make it.

 You can expect…

:: Rich content inspired by the Seven Sacred Teachings and encouragement to explore what they mean to you, as related to your experience and soulwork

creative practice and relationship, Hali Karla Arts:: Journal prompts for your creative practice

:: To make your art. With YOUR voice. You will be encouraged to discover what that means. Emphasis will be entirely on process and contemplation for this ecourse circle.

You will be encouraged to focus your creative energy by committing to: 1) one contemplative/prayer painting OR 2) daily art/visual journaling OR 3) daily photography practice during the 21 day practice. More guidance on this will be in the official Welcome.

NOTE: If you are concerned about not having enough time, consider that your daily practice can take as little or as much time as you’d like it to. Also, you can create a folder for your emails to keep the daily content for as long as you’d like, and you will have access to any media links until at least March 1, 2017 – to either re-visit the practice again, or to honor the pace you are able to keep.

This is for YOU if…

:: You are ready to explore or expand your creative process as a bridge to a deeper practice of awareness or as part of your spirituality

:: You are seeking to define, refine, or explore your core values and how these can be better integrated into all areas of your life – living from your truth in a way that nourishes your soul and reduces suffering, burnout, stress, anxiety, conflict and confusion

Cultivating Holistic Creativity, Hali Karla Arts:: You don’t know exactly why, but feel a strong calling to join in (often the best reason, in my experience!)

:: You are intrigued by developing your relationship & language with your self, others and the world ~ or feel a need to freshen it up

:: You feel called to start a circle of your own in your community someday (of any format), or you want to enhance the quality of circles you already participate in

:: You instinctually sense the power of creative expression as a fundamental facet of holistic well-being and self-acceptance (or have lived this truth and thirst for more!)

:: You are birthing an idea, business, or new way of living and want to begin your new relationships with clarity and integrity within, aligned with your personal values (Begin the way you wish to continue!)

:: You are a healer, artist, caregiver, practitioner, therapist, coach, guide, seeker, facilitator, or edge-walking creative, and are not afraid to play AND dive deep in honor of centering yourself in your own wholeness and filling your well

relatetestimony2This is NOT for Everyone.

The effects of an intentional creative practice can only be known through direct experience – only you can give that to yourself.

You will practice daily. In doing so, you will go deep. It may be both challenging and joyful.

Just to be clear, This is NOT…
  • A typical art-making workshop or e-course!  We will make visual art as an integral part of our process, yes, but the emphasis is on you actually showing up to the direct experience of your creative practice. Please note: While no art-making experience is necessary, the content is not focused on technique or demonstration at all – though we may discuss some of that in our sharing. The internet is full of inspiration and ideas to jumpstart the technical side of your painting or art journaling. Your RELATE practice will move deeper than the usual how-tos and art-making inspiration, acting as an intimate tool for getting in touch with your fearless, inspired Self, and as a ritual for exploring your inner trust, voice & innate knowing. This will look different for every participant.
  • relatetestimonyblock1

    It’s also not the usual teacher / student format!   Each woman is valued equally and what evolves comes from personal practice and the energy and chemistry of the group. I do not proclaim to be an expert, but rather a devoted practitioner with a map for our journey from my own travels and learning. I act as a guide, illuminating ideas & path, and inspiring engaged awareness. I will bring us back to creative process and contemplation again and again, so that you might return to your truth over and over – in this way, we create new ways of being, seeing and supporting one another’s creative journeys.

    I practice what I bring to you to practice. The content and format continues to evolve each year to reflect my own journey, as well.

From me to you…


RELATE is very special, and comes right from my heart.

I have found the Seven Sacred Teachings to be precious gifts in my own spiritual growth and relationships. Every time I visit them, they reveal to me my current blind-spots (and some old ones, too), as well as ways to try to live more in alignment with how I hope to show up in this world.

The teachings themselves do not change – but we do, so every time we re-visit them, there is new perspective to inspire us.

We will use these teachings as our launchpad into the waters of our dynamic feminine energy and wisdom. We will explore and celebrate how this is amplified, stretched and expanded within our personal creative practice and a collectively committed circle of creative women.

I will share with you some basic relative animal and plant medicine along the way, but most important will be your own unique experience and interpretation, and what you notice in your natural living environment, as we practice the expression and expansion of our inherent, creative patterns of relating.

Everything about us is Relational, Creative and Rhythmic.

Are you ready to explore this in your practice?

With Joy,
