Season 2 Episode 2: Place

In episode two we do a deep dive into the concept and impact of place. At first we take some time to talk about space vs. place, then we get into how much energy a change of place can take up, and the effects on our everyday life (mental and physical) including creativity. We tackle questions like how do retreats, residencies, and workshops impact your work, if bringing place into your space can aid in flow, and discuss how tools of nature journaling -sit spot- can be used to ground yourself. We ramble and riff on place, and hope some of what we touch on resonates with you all. We’d love to hear about how place comes up in, and how it impacts, your creative life.  

Heads up if you have little ones around, occasionally some colorful language slips into our dialog.

Thank you for listening in on our thoughts and conversations. Now we’d love to hear from you! We’re putting together a “listener’s questions” episode and we’d love for you to share your questions about creativity and our individual practices.  We’d also love to hear about your stories, both the victories and the struggles with your own creative process. Send it over to our e-mail address or dm us on Instagram. We look forward to bringing your voices into the podcast!
