“When you have patience, you have peace.
When you become peace, you feel the stillness.
Go into the stillness . . . travel with the light
Breathe . . . in alignment with the rhythm of the universe.”
Master Chunyi Lin, Founder, Spring Forest Qigong
(Catherine’s qigong teacher for over 20 years)
“You yourself are nothing, only a channel for the pouring through of that which is something, which is all. Your job is to keep that channel clear and clean and pure so that which passes through may be unobstructed, unsullied, undiluted, and thus show forth its clear purity and intention.”
Emily Carr, painter and author
December 13, 1871 – March 2, 1945
“Artistic expression is a spirit not a method, a pursuit, not a settled goal, an instinct, not a body of rules . . . art must take to the road and risk all.”
Group of Seven Exhibition Catalog, 1922
