heARTbalms™


heARTbalmsis a highly interactive workshop that fuses the creation of art with mindfulness practices to explore how we relate to each other and foster constructive, healthy exchanges between participants about unconscious bias. Discussions prompted by the creative and mindful processes will also open up the dialog to address the topics of diversity, inclusion, and coexistence. No prior experience with the arts or mindfulness is needed. Come with an open heart…your mind will follow.*

And as always…

keep your peepers open!

*ps…workshop is designed for students, adults, corporations…contact me via email tina@tinascottlassiter.com for more information, use heARTbalms in the subject line, and please share with others who would be interested.

memories

Sadly, this past week someone I love dearly passed away. While looking through my photographs to find one of a woman who was like a Mother to me, I came across a small book that I made when I got back from my trip to Morocco several years ago. In it was a lively watercolor that I splashed together as I sat poolside in Quarzazate; its bright colors took me back, lifted my spirits. As I paged through my little creation then sifted through more pictures, though I was grieving, the memories captured of so many wonderful moments from my past gave me comfort.

I will miss you Sara…

ten years!

It’s the 10th birthday of my blog!!! 

For a decade, I have shown up to my keyboard to grieve, ponder over personal and professional issues, give gentle advice, share recipes and music, get poetic, showcase my latest art, celebrate, guide tours via photographs, dip my toes in political issues, and as I felt from the beginning, post whatever is “on my mind at the moment”. To my surprise, the content found on the eclectic eye allowed me to publish my first book, provided material for another, and has moved me forward on my life’s path in ways I never could have imagined since that first post on September 2, 2009.

Though I initially began the eclectic eye to reach out to the public, writing it became a form of discipline for me around year two and continues to serve as a reminder that over time with tenacity and desire, I can do whatever I set out to accomplish, beginning anew as often as necessary before everything settles into focus. So as I celebrate a decade of eclectic thoughts and images, for the 858th time I leave you with my signature sign off…

to do or not to do



there will be nothing to do if we perish from too many 
to do's without breaks to do nothing - tsl 

A little doing nothing refreshes the soul, spirit, mind, body and heart so every so often, chill all the way out, tune all the way into you, and as always...

keep your peepers open!

ps - snapped this photograph with my iPhone at the Botanic Gardens on a morning walk back in 2009…came across it recently…it was one of the pictures that made me want to get a better camera, slow myself down, and start seeing the world through a different lens.
