WHAT IS FLOW?
A MESSAGE FROM CASANDRA.
… is the ideal space for growing both art and learning. When I am in the Flow state, I am limitless, and I can see the immediate fruits of my creative impulsivity. I am free to create, free to explore and discover the world for myself, directly, through the use of all my senses, and in a state of joyful play.
I love blending my creativity with my rebellious, resourceful and grounded intellect. I love being a ‘golden mandala of delight,’ a kid-whisperer, and a visionary woman. I love my feisty, juicy passionate heart, and I love that my willingness to generate joy inspires others to do the same!
I created Flow Fests to make flow arts accessible to all, to expand awareness of this unique cultural community and to encourage all people to play. I think play is essential to learning, flow is essential to play, and flow arts are a tool for expanding consciousness and improving vital well-being.
