◦ ◦ ◦ The old one, the One Who Knows, is within us. She thrives in the deepest soul-psyche of women, the ancient and vital wild Self. Her home is that place in time where the spirit of women and the spirit of wolf meet- the place where the mind and instincts mingle, where a woman’s deep life funds her mundane life. It is the point where the I and the Thou kiss, the place where, in all spirit, women run with the wolves ◦ ◦ ◦
-Clarissa Pinkola Estes

– ☾ We are melting into the stillness of creation. Our breath. And our inner dreams. We tell stories to ground this truth, so when we close both eyes, we are able to see with our third. –

☼ Any original 2-D work (including digital photography) must be able to hang from the wall with two hooks. They can be created on or of paper, including collage, artist book, origami, printmaking, painting, and more, will be considered.

The selected artwork will be curated by The Omi Collective.
