Odysseys with Wholeness

Pure Gratitude

An Online Workshop - The Mysticism of Inditing

Saturday 19 August 2023

I see you in the streams of colour

Trickling down the water

Drawing in the essence

Then dissolving into nothingness.


Everything is



Thinning out.


The magic springs from the page

Glistening from the water

Before the dullness of evaporation

Clouds the landscape.

August Intermezzo

Along the path of falling upwards we have cried for joy unspeakable, acclaimed merciful anger and been swept away by luminous hope and our deepest desires.

Once past the initial distress and bewilderment, each time we have experienced our heart being cracked open, waves of gratitude spontaneously swell from within, while our inditing heart spills gracious words on paper. In awe and wonder, we surprise ourselves by unearthing a cornucopia dwelling deep inside us, patiently waiting to explode in creative recklessness.

Often, our first expressions of gratitude burst when we conquer an obstacle or clear a tenacious hurdle that has been tethering us to our daily scruffles. In that explosion of joy and appreciation, there are still residues of prior struggles and limitations, their specific blackened oscillations tinting the vibrancy of gratitude pulsing at higher frequencies.

So, what does pure gratitude feel like?

What would it be to effortlessly experience a state of appreciation unsoiled by fights and resistances?

What would it be to look out on the world from the wholeness perspective, through the eyes of unconditional and inclusive love?

To find out we will return to our colours and invite the element of water to accompany us in our surrender to what is seeking expression through us, in words and music, and becomes voiceless in gratefulness.

My Heart Is Inditing

The purpose of the workshop is threefold:

  1. Uncovering the artform based on written language which enables us to bring the exquisite invisible into a precious and cherished visible form
  2. Developing our capacities for voicing the truths that dwell in our heart
  3. Initiating an experience of inhabiting and dwelling in the imaginal realm so as to unleash the powerful creativity populating our heart


There are three parts to the workshop.

  1. The first is a sequence of words and music taking us on a transformative voyage of discovery
  2. The second is a guided writing practice following the waves of consciousness unfolding
  3. The third is a time of sharing, not about what might have been produced – and is usually largely work in progress – rather a sharing around the experience of being with others in a creative container dedicated to written language
