    Ep 32: The Light Keeper, a poem by Emma Freeman

    I share a poem I wrote called, "The Light Keeper" in the hope that it will be healing or inspiring to someone out there. 

    Poetry has become medicine to me, both writing it and reading it. I hope to share some of that medicine with more people. 

    You can read the poem here: www.creativeunearthing.com/light-keeper.

    ep 31: wabi sabi art making: a deep, peaceful, present way to create art rooted in nature

    ep 31: wabi sabi art making: a deep, peaceful, present way to create art rooted in nature

    In this episode, I share my love of the Japanese wabi sabi aesthetic philosophy, what it is, the history of it within Japanese Zen Buddhism, what some of the beautiful aspects or qualities of it are and how I explore them within my art making. I hope it inspires you to invite more simplicity, spaciousness, silence, stillness, spontaneity, presence, wonder and beauty into your creativity and art making. 



    This is about creating art as a meditation practice and as a spiritual practice, which to me just means turning inward, getting quiet and going deep to find a soul connection within the natural world that we can collaborate with to create art that is personal, healing, interconnecting and beautiful. 



    I have a new on-demand art class available called Wabi Sabi Book Making where we explore mixed media book making techniques with paper and textiles, slow, intuitive hand stitching, printmaking and mark making with found nature, dripping beeswax, burying books, poetry, scent and more. You can learn more and sign up for instant access at www.creativeunearthing.com/classes.

Just lovely

So grateful to have found a podcast that resonates with me on so many levels.

Britt in San Francisco ,

Such a beautiful podcast!

So happy to have found this super interesting and thoughtful podcast. Emma is a wonderful host with such a calm, kind and super smart way about her. She gives her guests the room to really dive in and explore. I just love the pace of it all too. Such a great companion when I’m working on my own art practice (or making dinner ;)

Soulful Creative Journeying

Emma is a genuine gift. What she shares about art making, nature, poetry, and all the intricacies of being human in this great big experience of life is gentle, creative, soulful, and honest. At least once an episode I get chills from the way she tells stories... there is magic in the way she notices and brings attention to the small, simple moments.
