Giselle is a reluctant participant in a capitalist system. She is also a guitarist, an apprentice blacksmith, a New Yorker, and a social worker. Giselle’s artwork is inspired by her overactive imagination and memories of places around the world that she would like to return to ASAP. The artwork on display today could not exist without the bold love and encouragement of Giselle’s wife, Jill, and friends and family around the world. Or without the profound influence of Radiohead, or James Baldwin.
Giselle’s paintings range from anthropomorphic abstractions to landscape scenes to more detailed portraits. Nearly all of her work on display is acrylic on canvas, although some pieces are acrylic on cardboard or oil on canvas; there is only one watercolor on canvas, can you find it? In addition to painting, Giselle also works with iron and copper metals. More of her metalwork can be found at on Etsy by searching for CopperLionDesigns.

We will lead everyone through a guided meditation, opening up the energy centers of our bodies and then start the breath. We will be breathing for 45 minutes to a specific set of selected music used to enhance your experience. When we are done breathing you will have some silent time to ground yourself…journal, have a snack, drink water, etc. We also assist in helping with moving energy, by helping you ground or stay in the body. Or if we can sense you are stuck and it could be helpful. You also have the option of no assistance.

A 5Rhythms Pilgrimage
A pilgrim (from the Latin peregrinus) is a traveler who is on a journey to a holy place (says wikipedia). Some of us love the darkness, some of us fear it. I invite us all to meet it together held by the container and medicine of the 5Rhythms. We will dance in the shadows and the light through flow, staccato , chaos, lyrical and stillness. Join us in this cosmic love dance between the sun and the moon, the masculine and the feminine~ Let’s dive deep into the mystery and discover where we shine.
