Is my soul asleep?
Have those beehives that labor
at night stopped? And the water-
wheel of thought,
is it dry, the cups empty,
wheeling, carrying only shadows?
No, my soul is not asleep,
It is awake, wide awake.
It neither sleeps nor dreams, but watches,
its clear eyes open,
far-off things, and listens
at the shores of the great silence.
Soul and Sanity ~ One on One sessions
I would like to thank you Azul for accepting me under your wings and to respond and work with my soul’s call.
Azul Valerie Thome possesses an extraordinary ability to give voice to those pieces of soul that have been marginalized in our modern frenzied culture. Her counsel is a form of re-membering where we recall what we instinctively know, but have forgotten. She helps reknit our lives back into the ongoing conversation with the green world, with air and water, light and color.
"I had the privilege to experience a weekend with Azul on a One2One basis. It went deeper than pure creation - it became a ceremony of welcoming back the artist in me, who I left behind too long ago.
Working with Azul has been an incredible and magical experience. At the beginning I had no idea that it was going to be such a powerful collaborative experience. The process of choosing three power animals which had significance and meaning in my life was just the start.
